What is so special about the Cosori pressure cooker?
The Cosori pressure cookers are famous for their unique design and looks. On their official site, one slow cooker and three electronic pressure cooker models are listed.
Let us keep aside the slow cooker and discuss the three pressure cooker models individually.
1. Cosori Pressure Cooker C 3120-PC 2 Quart
The main features of the Cosori Pressure Cooker C 3120-PC 2 Quart are as follows:

- It has 9 proven safety mechanisms ranging from Lid lock safety up to Lid position monitor.
- It also has a power consumption of 800 watts.

What are the prime features of the Cuisinart CPC-600?
The main features that the Cuisinart CPC-600 boasts of are as follows:
- The Cuisinart CPC-600 has a capacity/volume of 6 quarts.
- It boasts of a fingerprint-proof brushed stainless steel housing.
- It has a digital thermostat.
- It has cool touch side handles.
- The Cuisinart CPC-600 has Low & High Pressure, Browning, Simmer, Sauté and automatic Keep Warm Settings
- The Cuisinart CPC-600 also has a wattage of 1000.
- It is one of the lowest priced electrical pressure cookers that are available out there which ensure this level of quality, efficiency and uncompromising quality as well as offer such high levels of functionality.
- One of the only negative things that can be said about this model is the fact that it lacks a slow cook mode. This pressure can not be used as a slow cooker. For that purpose, you must look forward to the Breville Fast Slow Pro (please click here for the differences between the Cuisinart CPC-600 and the Breville Fast Slow Pro) in the high end rage or even the other model being discussed in this article in a moderate price range.
A comparison between the two.
The main differences between these two are as follows:
- The Cosori offers you 2 quart and 6 quart models while the Cuisinart CPC-600 offers you a volume of only 6 quarts.
- The Cosori has a completely unique look which the Cuisinart CPC-600 does not exactly have (while it still does look beautiful), the Cosori gives you greater aesthetic pleasure over the Cuisinart CPC-600.
- The Cosori has a Slow cooking mode. This is one of the most important features that the Cuisinart CPC-600 lacks.
- The Cosori is fairly more expensive than the Cuisinart CPC-600.
- Last but not the least, only Cosori provides you with the extremely small volume of 2 quarts in a model, the CPC-600 offers you a volume of 6 quarts.
So, which one should one choose over the other?
Well, both of them are extremely useful pressure cookers with fairly distinct functions, if one keeps the need in mind, it becomes clear as to which one they should select. What is more is the fact that the special features can be seen distinctly right when one is buying them, making it even easier to choose perfectly.
However, let us look at some potential scenarios and the probable choices from some potential perspectives:
- If you are looking for a small volume, the 2 quart model of Cosori is the right choice for you. However, if you are looking for a slightly greater volume, you can always look at the 5 quart models of the Instant Pot (click here for the differences between the Cosori and the Instant Pot)
- If you are looking for aesthetic pleasure, chances are you’ll get stuck between the Cosori and the Fagor LUX (click here for the differences between them). However, between the Cosori and Cuisinart, the Cosori is the clear winner when it comes to unique looks.
- If you are looking to use your pressure cooker as a slow cooker as well, then the Cosori electric pressure cooker is the choice for you.
- And if you are looking at it from an entirely economic perspective, then the Cuisinart CPC-600 is the better choice as it is fairly cheaper than the Cosori electric pressure cooker.
Finally, keep in mind that the right pressure cooker depends on your needs. Please do your research before you go out and buy the pressure cooker that would serve all your purposes. Good shopping!
