What is good in 1829 Carl Schmidt Sohn pressure cooker?

1829 CARL SCHMIDT SOHN cooker has demonstrated the ability to do a lot of things very well, which is fairly unique in this space. By adding in a functional air fryer in a way that can function as a standalone device when you have it set up that way, this becomes more about space-saving and cleaning convenience than anything else. Air fryers can be extremely useful when they’re powerful enough to cook big things, and this is exactly that. And if you’re struggling to find space on your counters for multiple quality gadgets, being able to consolidate into a single appliance is extremely valuable.

The Carl Schmidt Sohn multi cooker comes in a large box measuring just above a foot square on end and about 22 inches tall. The box has a built-in handle on top. The multi cooker has a very conservative and professional look but also appears very similar to the many other pressure cookers on the market. The sides are sheathed in stainless steel, the top is made of stamped stainless steel and the handles and base are a matte plastic. The control panel is a glossy soft plastic that must be cleaned and treated with care. I would have preferred a glass panel or even a blister button panel for its cleanability, but the glossy panel does look sharp. I noticed that the control panel is not quite centered between the handles it but it is off to the right ever so slightly.

Dimensions & weight

The pot on the inside is an extruded stainless steel pot with a copper-toned silicone ceramic non-stick coating on the inside. The silicone ceramic non-stick works as well as it does on late night infomercials – for now. In time, I am concerned that the coating will become less and less forgiving. For now, any residue or cooked on food from each of the meals I have made so far has just slid off the inside. The manual states that the pot is also dishwasher safe. If this were a stand-alone fry pan that lost its non-stick properties I would recycle and replace it, but since the pot is an integral part of an expensive multi cooker set I’d like to know I can order a replacement. I could not find any for sale online.

Multi-cooking setting

The inside of the pot has embossed lettering for measurement in both cups and JY, which is an abbreviation I’m unfamiliar with but may correspond to the full capacity of the multipot. The base of the pot rises in the center and seems to match the contour of the heating element inside of the multi cooker. The multi cooker has a large spring-mounted temperature sensor at the base of the inner chamber and the multi cooker will sense that a sufficiently compressed spring means that the pot is installed.  This safety feature prevents the unit from operating without the pot installed.

Measuring cup and spoon

The Multi cooker also comes with a measuring cup and a plastic spoon that each look as if it would melt at a lower temperature than most food is prepared at. I think that these are two things that Carl Schmidt Sohn could safely assume are in each kitchen. Not including them would actually improve the impression of the entire set.The pressure top has a center guidepost to hold a metal frame that supports an elastomeric silicone ring. This design avoids the need to include a steel ring to set the gasket or o-ring into and it is actually an easier to clean design than the traditional o-ring groove design or a welded on silicon gasket centering ring.

Rack & frying basket

The multi cooker comes with a roast rack and a fry basket. Each of these is either a non-Austenitic stainless steel or a chrome-plated steel container (because they are ferromagnetic). The fry basket has the mesh expertly pressed into the form of a basket without any overlapping of the steel. The basket feet are made from a ring of steel welded to the base but the feet aren’t centered on the basket. This is hardly a reason to condemn the quality or design of the unit but, like the off-center control panel, seems like an overlooked detail. I have found that both the rack and the basket are each useful for holding either the pressure top or the airfryer top while cooking.

Safety priority

The top also includes a thermal safety latch so that the top may not be removed if the interior is too hot. On some competing units, the safety button is a visual indicator that the pressure is too high to remove the top but on the Carl Schmidt Sohn, the button actually prevents the top from being removed. On the inside of the top, an anti-block shield surrounds the nozzle for the vent weight and prevents food from clogging the steam exit. One last safety feature is the plastic tab that interrupts an infrared beam on the body of the multicooker.
