I tried using a convenient home appliance 'Electric pressure pan SR-MP300' that can be realized with only one button & pressure / low temperature / anhydrous / stew cooking to maximize the ability of meat with one button



Panasonic's electric pressure cooker has been renewed for the first time in about 10 years and appeared on July 1, 2019 as ' Electric Pressure Pot SR-MP300 '. The SR-MP300 not only functions as a pressure cooker, but also can be used for “anhydrous cooking” that locks in flavor without using water, “hot cooking” for hot topics, and “reserved cooking” for making a morning and completing it at night. The recipes are abundant, so you can make time-consuming stewed dishes with a single button in a short time, and if you have one, it is an item that seems to expand the breadth of the dish at a stretch, so actually make various kinds of curd and curry etc I tried

◆ Opening & Appearance Review
When I open the box that arrived at the editorial department ...



It contained the main body, recipe book, instruction manual, and notes.



The body size is 27.8 × 29.2 × 27.0cm and weighs 3.6kg. The cooking capacity is 2.0L and the full capacity is 3.0L.



The front panel looks like this. At the top are LCDs, and at the bottom are buttons such as 'Cancel / Off', 'Reservation', 'Cooking start', 'Manual cooking', 'Hot keeping', 'Automatic cooking', '10 minutes' and '1 minute'.



The top is like this. There is a handle in the foreground ...



There is a weight at the back to switch between sealing and exhaust.



The power cord extends from the back. This code is a non-removable type.



On the back, there was a quick reference table that showed at a glance the setting of the “weight” depending on the cooking.



The power consumption is 700W, the set temperature of the thermal fuse is 167 degrees, and the current fuse is 3.15A.



When opening the lid, turn the handle to the right and set the scale to 'open'.



When the lid was opened, the pot contained a pan, ladle, steamed plate, dew tray, and a measuring cup for rice. It is a convenient point that the lid can be completely removed.



Looking at the instruction manual, the course is roughly divided into two types: 'manual cooking', which requires time setting, and 'automatic cooking', in which all cooking is automatically performed after pressing the button. There are four types of manual cooking: pressure cooking, stewed, anhydrous cooking, and low-temperature cooking. Automatic cooking is available in seven types: curry, meat and potatoes, kakuni, healthy soup, brown rice, black beans, and amazake. In the case of automatic cooking, you only need to cut the ingredients, so it is a convenient mode that does not need to look at the recipe or check the heating time.



And the point of SR-MP300 is that the recipe book is attached.



The recipe book has 48 pages and 80 recipes. There will be 100 recipes in addition to the

20 recipes published only on the web, and it will also fall into the trap of home appliances that `` It is good to buy cooking home appliances, but you need to cultivate recipes yourself and eventually stop using them '' It is unlikely.



The table of contents looks like this.



In addition to feast recipes cooperated by

Kinuko who has no cook alone , menus including classic dishes are organized for each ingredient such as meat, fish, vegetables, soup, eggs, rice & brown rice.



All recipes have photos.



Below the photo, icons indicate which modes are supported.



◆ I tried making pork kakuni with “automatic cooking” completed with one button
One of the new features of the renewed electric pressure cooker is that the 'automatic cooking menu' has increased. The previous model only had brown rice as a menu that can be automatically cooked, but the new model says that all 7 menus can be cooked automatically, so first try to make one of the automatic cooking menus, pork kakuni. The ingredients are sugar, soy sauce, sake, mirin, ginger, and pork belly.



Cut 600g of pork belly into 12 equal parts ...



Put in a pot. Pour in the liquid with the sliced ginger and seasoning.



Ready if you put the drop lid.



In addition, the amount of water of white rice and brown rice is shown inside the pot, indicating that it can be used as a rice cooker. In the case of white rice, it supports up to 5 go.



Connect to an outlet ...



Adjust the weight to 'sealed'.



Press the 'Automatic Cooking' button and a number will appear on the panel. When you press the button repeatedly, the number switches and you reach the desired menu number.



Kakuni is '3' so if you match the number and press 'Start cooking' ...



The screen switches to the display '20 minutes' like this and cooking starts. The time displayed on the screen is the actual cooking time, and does not include the pressurization / decompression time. The time required for pressurization is 10 to 20 minutes and the time required for decompression is 10 to 40 minutes, so even if the cooking time is '20 minutes', it will take about an hour.


The operating sound during cooking can be confirmed from the following.

`` Electric pressure pan SR-MP300 '' Cooking-YouTube


By the way, if you put it next to a 10-cooker cooker in the kitchen, it looks like this size.



When cooking is finished, you will be notified by a beep sound.



The screen was 'Complete'.



…… but immediately after the cooking is completed, the pressure display pin is raised as shown below. This indicates that pressure is still being applied, so wait for a while.



In the case of Kakuni, the pins fell in about 20 minutes.



Weight that is 'sealed' ...



Adjust to 'Exhaust'.



Take the weight ...



Opening the lid and opening like this.



When I removed the drop, the kakuni was completed. Speaking of kakuni is a typical example of cooking that takes a long time to boil, but it takes 180 minutes for a regular pot, but it can be completed in about 60 minutes with SR-MP300 even if pressure is applied and decompressed.



This is what I put on the plate. It is a slightly lighter shade than

slow cookers where food is cooked for a long time.



You can check the finish of Kakuni from the following movie.

I made pork simmered with `` electric pressure pan SR-MP300 ''-YouTube


While the kakuni cooked with a slow cooker can be mellow everywhere, the SR-MP300 has a thick fat, but the lean part still has a firm texture. The feeling is not that 'meat unfolds in the mouth', but the flesh is tender, and the savory taste is overflowing with each bite. Some asked for cooking for a short time, or 'I want you to taste a little more.'



◆ Potato showed its true value when making meat potato with automatic cooking
In addition, I will make another dish, a standard meat and potato, as a menu 'Automatically cook with one button after putting the cut ingredients'.



Cut the onions into combs, and cut the potatoes and carrots into larger pieces.



Pork sliced pork! And put the vegetables in, then pour the liquid that combines soy sauce, sake, mirin, sugar and soup stock ...



Ready to drop.



Press the 'Auto Cooking' button twice and adjust the menu to No. 2, then press 'Start Cooking'.



Cooking time for meat and potatoes is 10 minutes, so this was completed in about an hour together with pressurization and decompression.



Opening the lid looks like this.



You can check the state of the finished meat and potato ingredients from the following movie.

Meat and potato perfection made with `` electric pressure pan SR-MP300 ''-YouTube


The potatoes are in a state where there is no collapse and the horns stand up, but when you pass through the potatoes, they are loosened softly as 'Hoku ...'. When I ate it, it was both exquisite and crisp, with a perfection that would not be possible with a regular hot pot, and it tasted well. The sweetness of the potatoes was brought out to the utmost, and even if it was a supermarket sale item, the finish was so high that I thought, 'Is this a very good potato?'



However, since the sliced meat was in a bare state, it seems that a large meat like kakuni is finished better than a small meat like sliced meat.



Onions are as soft as melting in your mouth and disappearing.



The carrots were also sweetly finished.



◆ We can make tomato boiled fish that is fashionable & umami condensed with anhydrous dishes
And the new menu added to SR-MP300 is 'Anhydrous cooking'. Anhydrous cooking, as it is, does not add water to the ingredients, but cooks only with the moisture of the ingredients, making it possible to make healthy dishes that are hard to miss nutrition and umami. This time, I wrote 'Sanma fig fig tomato stew' which was devised by Kinuko who has no cook, so I made it with small horse mackerel. As you can see from the large number of materials, it is a feast menu that can be used for hospitality.



First, take the head and guts of a small horse mackerel ...



Leave the bones as they are.



Grate the garlic ...



Add salt, pepper and flour to fish.



Cut the tomatoes into slices, slice the onions, and slice the long onions diagonally.



In addition to the above ingredients, add dry figs, ketchup, balsamic vinegar, honey and salt to the pan.



This is not automatic cooking, press the button of `` manual cooking '', adjust the arrow on the screen to `` anhydrous cooking '', press the button of `` 10 minutes '' three times to set the time to 30 minutes, and finally `` start cooking '' Press.



This boiled tomato took 20 minutes for pressurization, 30 minutes for cooking, and 30 minutes for decompression, so considering the preparation etc., it is more suitable for 'feast making' than 'short-time cooking'. It is inconvenient if you only use a stove when making multiple hospitality dishes, but it is very convenient that it becomes a means of cooking even if the stove is closed.



I don't put anything that seems to be water besides one tablespoon of balsamic vinegar, but the amount of water is 'soup?'



Complete with olive oil, olive nuts and basil leaves.



It is a small horse mackerel that is chopped and put in a pot as it is, but lacks the presence of bones that makes you think, 'What is bone?' When a fluffy fish is crushed in the mouth, it feels a little bit bone-like, but it only softens the mackerel bones in the mackerel can.



The following movie shows how small horse mackerel is fluffy and mottled.

Hard dried figs and tomatoes ...



Everything, such as green onions, was completely finished.



All the soups have the flavor of the ingredients condensed and are quite informative. Rice, bread, pasta, it feels like anything.



◆ 'Low temperature cooking' that can not return to salad chicken at convenience stores
Also, since the SR-MP300 can be used as a low-temperature cooker, I decided to make salad chicken by low-temperature cooking. The ingredients are simply chicken breast, salt, sake and water.



First, open the thick part with a kitchen knife so that the heat flow becomes uniform and the chicken breast thickness becomes uniform.



Put sake, water, salt and chicken breast in a pot ...



Select the 'Manual cooking' menu. Low temperature cooking can be selected from 70 degrees and 85 degrees, but this time was set at '85 degrees / 20 minutes' according to the recipe book.



Low-temperature cooking is not pressure cooking, so there is no need to pressurize or decompress. Cooking was completed in about 40 minutes, including heating time.



The finish is so juicy and tender that 'I can't return to salad chicken at convenience stores anymore ...'. When breast is heated, it tends to sticky, but all flavors and moisture are tightly confined and the juice overflows every time you chew. An editor who usually uses a low-temperature cooker '

Anova Precision Cooker ' says, 'Anova cooks at 70 degrees or less, so the texture is more rare and different from the salad chicken of SR-MP300. SR -In the case of the MP300, it feels like 'cooking' but it's juicy. '



◆ Reserved cooking butter chicken curry
And with the SR-MP300, the automatic cooking menu can also be pre-ordered, 'preparing in the morning and completing it at night', so I actually tried it. Let's make cheese butter chicken curry.



First, chop one onion, grate garlic and ginger.



Cut the chicken leg into bite-sized pieces ...



Pour onions, ginger, garlic, butter, garam masala and paprika powder into the fried one.



Put the fried ingredients in a pan ...



Including canned water, tomatoes, salt and ketchup.



Close the lid and adjust the weight to 'sealed' ...



After selecting the curry menu '1' in 'Automatic cooking', push the 'Reserve' button. The appointment can be completed 3-12 hours later.



This time, set three hours later and push 'Start Cooking'.



Is it okay to put raw ingredients in a pot at room temperature when making a reservation? About 20 minutes after pressing the start of cooking, heating and pressurization started, so instead of leaving it at room temperature for a long time, raise the temperature in the pot once It seems to be a specification. In addition, only curry, meat and potatoes, kakuni, healthy soup and brown rice can be reserved.



Three hours later, a beep sounded when the decompression process was completed. Open the lid once ...



Add curry roux and heat it in 'simmered' mode. In the case of a slow cooker where the lid is closed and cooked, the moisture will inevitably increase, and it may be necessary to perform the final finishing in a pot, but in the case of SR-MP300, the lid can be opened and cooked with pressure after cooking. That is a very convenient place.



Finally add yogurt and let it boil for a while ...



Finished with topping cheese that melts into the finish.



When I ate it, what I should mention specially is the perfection of the meat. While resolving the problem of 'meat becomes light when cooked for a long time', it realizes the softness of cooking for a long time. Even if you can eat curry with this meat, it is a perfection to think, 'Is it worthwhile to introduce an electric pressure cooker into your home ...?'



When it comes to pressure cookers, it's easy to imagine Japanese foods such as simmered boiled meat and potatoes, but the SR-MP300's good point is that there are so many recipes that you can make special dishes such as tomato stew and butter chicken curry, as well as specialty menus. Some people commented that the butter chicken curry, which has the flavor of tomatoes and onions condensed, can be put on the market.



The SR-MP300 can also be used as a rice cooker, and can of course make brown rice, white rice, rice porridge, cooked rice, etc.



It ’s very painful to boil for a long time,



There is also a dessert menu, so it's suitable for both those who want to eat something delicious but want to eat, and those who want to make special dishes.



Electric pressure cooker SR-MP300 can be purchased from Amazon at 29,247 yen including tax as of article creation.
