Without further delay, let us look into their specifications now, which are as follows:
Let us now look at the main features of the Power Pressure Cooker XL
The Power Pressure Cooker XL is a series of four pressure cookers. These pressure cookers are well known in the market and all of them have a high selling volume because of the things that they offer.
The perfect specifications of each of them are as follows:
1. The Power Pressure Cooker XL 6 quart:
The main features that the Power Pressure Cooker XL 6 quart provides are:
- A volume of 6 quarts.
- A wattage of 1000.
2. The Power Pressure Cooker XL 8 quart:
- A volume of 8 quarts.
- A wattage of 1300.
3. The Power Pressure Cooker XL 8 quart deluxe:
- A volume of 8 quarts.
- A wattage of 1300 as well.
- The main feature that makes this model special is the famous flavor infusion technology which we mentioned in the differences between the Power Pressure Cooker Xl and the Aicok Electronic Pressure Cooker.
4. The Power Pressure Cooker XL 10 quart:
- This one is one of those rare extra-large sized pressure cookers which boast of a volume of 10 quarts.
- The wattage of this pressure cooker is 1600.
[Please note that several sellers claim that the Power Pressure Cooker XL is one of those that can easily be used for canning foods. However, we really advice against that because the USDA has always been against that. If you are looking to can food, it is always the best and safest option to stick to the stove-top caners. Those aren’t too expensive and are always effective as well as certified safe. Why would you risk your health (and life, frankly) to save a few bucks when you are spending so much to get an electronic pressure cooker anyway?]

The Main Differences Between The Two.
The main differences between these two models are as follows:
- The Fagor LUX gives you a choice between 8 models while the Power Pressure Cooker XL gives you only about 4 models to choose from. If you want a brand with much more versatility in terms of models, please take a look at the Instant Pot.
- The Fagor LUX gives you a choice of 3 colors while the Power Pressure Cooker gives you no choice for color-selection. Zero points for aesthetic pleasure values to the Power Pressure Cooker XL!
- The Fagor LUX lets you cook Yogurt, a quality that once used to be limited to the Instant Pot models. This feature is not present in the Power Pressure Cooker XL.
- The Fagor LUX gives you models of 4, 6 and 8 quarts while the Power Pressure Cooker XL gives you models of 6, 8 and 10 quarts. What is important here is the fact that both of them provide you with benefits and thus the choice should be made only depending on the volume that you need.
- The Power Pressure Cooker XL has the famous feature known as the “Flavor Infusion Technology” which the Fagor LUX lacks. This allows you to cook flavored food flawlessly, so if you’re in for that, the choice is clear.
- The Fagor LUX, finally, is comparatively cheaper than the Power Pressure Cooker XL.
Verdict: So, which one should one choose between these two?
Well, given how different these two are, it will not be very hard to choose the right one if only one can keep their specific needs in mind.
Let us take a few examples and see what the probable choices could be and when:
- If you are looking for a better aesthetic pleasure, the Fagor LUX seems to be the right choice with all the options it provides there.
- If you are looking for a small pressure cooker, the Fagor LUX provides you with a 4 quart model. However, if you are looking for a larger pressure cooker, the Power Pressure Cooker XL provides you with one of the rarer models of 10 quarts. Please do note that both of them have 6 and 8 quart models. The choice here depends on your need. If you want a pressure cooker even smaller than the Fagor LUX, you might want to take a look at the Cosori Electric Pressure Cooker.
- If you are looking to cook Yogurt, the Fagor LUX is clearly the right choice for you, it is one of the only pressure cookers outside the Instant Pot line of products that have this feature.
- If you are planning to cook flavored foods, the Power Pressure Cooker XL seems to be the right choice because of the “Flavor Infusion Technology” that it provides you. Thus, the Pressure Cooker XL is the choice to be made there.
- Finally, from an economic perspective, the Fagor LUX is the more probable choice because it is comparatively cheaper than the Power Pressure Cooker XL. However, if you want to take a look at the cheaper models, we suggest the Bella Electric Pressure Cooker and the Tayama Electric Pressure Cooker.
