UPDATE 4/30/17: Although this pressure cooker model was originally launched as the “LUX 360” due to unforeseen circumstances, Fagor America has had to change the name of this model to “LUX™ LCD” This article has been updated to reflect the new name for this model.

Fagor LUX™ LCD Electric Pressure Cooker & Multi Cooker

Last month, at the Chicago Housewares show, Fagor America introduced their newest multi cooker with pressure programs – the LUX™ LCD. The model name is a little misleading as it does not actually mean that this is a LUX with a new display – this cooker actually features a complete selection of cooking functions and a knob that spins to select them.

Fagor LUX™ LCD has a more modern and efficient spring valve.

Keeping with the tradition of their previous award-winning model, Fagor has maintained the more advanced spring-valve and more powerful heating element.  This means that the LUX™ LCD will reach pressure faster and operate more efficiently than other electric pressure cookers with a weighted valve. The more advanced valve means that this multi cooker only requires 1 cup of cooking liquid – and  I’ve gotten away with as little as 1/2 cup – to bring this cooker to pressure compared to 1 1/2 cups or even 3 cups required by other cookers on the market.

Pressure cooker experts already know that using less liquid at the start of pressure cooking is literally the difference between making a moist flavorful braise versus a tasteless soup.

Tickle that Belly Button!

The most obvious feature of the new LUX™ LCD is the return of the spin-dial navigation, it’s front-and-center below the very large display and lets you easily roll through the option and push to select them.

It is very easy to use and figure out – especially if your car ever had a “retro” pre-touchscreen navigator that required you spin and punch every-single-letter of the city and street of your destination.  But don’t worry, the LUX™ LCD will get dinner going in an average of three spins and punches.

Extra-Large Color-changing Display

The display is big, easy to read and changes color according to what’s going on.  For example, it is gray when it is off, bright blue when you are selecting the cooking program, and light green when it’s running.

The display also shows icons to remind you to close the pressure cooker lid, remind to press the start button once you’ve got everything programmed, let you know if the pressure cooker is in heat-up mode (trying to reach pressure) or is finished and is keeping things warm and whether the control panel is locked (more on this feature, below).

Fagor LUX™ LCD – 10 programs and functions

10 programs and functions

The screen features 10 primary cooking functions: Pressure cook (low and high), slow cook (low and high), yogurt maker, simmer, brown, grains, steam (without pressure), sauté, dessert and egg.

Plus the LUX™ LCD also includes a delay timer (a busy mom’s fave feature) and keep warm (ditto). It also has the ability to memorize three of your favorite settings (time, pressure/temperature) for each function and the ability to lock-in the settings to keep curious kids, spouses or pet-sitters from ruining your dinner plans.

Stainless Steel Inner-bowl & Accessory Set

The LUX™ LCD features the brushed stainless steel inner bowl with the maximum filling level for pressure cooking programs clearly noted.  Also, unlike most electrics which are right on features and poor on accessories – you can start pressure cooking right away with the included accessories.

It also comes with a polished stainless steel steamer basket and wire trivet.

  1. When will this be available in Europe?

    1. I’d like to know too!

      1. Jay, Sur la Table will carry this product in an exclusive white color starting August 2017. Thank you.

    2. Mehitabel, this product is only available in the USA and Canada at this time. There are no plans for it to be launched in Europe. Thank you.

  2. Does anyone have this product or is Sur la table’s “OUT OF STOCK” actually mean never had stock?

  3. For the 8 qt, Macy’s is retailing this at $100 over and above the MSRP — at $289.99. A pop-up coupon appears for $30 off if used in the next 48 hours. Subtracting that, the price dropped to $202.99. Ouch! Still too high. Fagor’s announced the MSRP as $199.95 for the 8 qt.

    I’ll wait until other retailers offer it. I resent Macy’s gouging tactics. No wonder they’re closing doors all over the country. :-(

  4. Macy’s is exclusive retailer . . . for now.

  5. PreOrder with Sur la Table. Use this coupon to receive 20% off your order with free shipping. Act fast as the coupon ends on May 28th. FRESH17.

    1. Whoops. Didn’t see the coupon code until today. :-(
      Thanks for the update. I’m keeping a lookout for any discount deals.

  6. Hi Laura,
    I just bought this newest Fagor Lux 6 quart model from Amazon. I also own the newest Instantpot 6 quart model. I am wondering will they both have the same cooking time for exactly the same food items? I do mostly vegetable steaming, cooking beans, and soft boil eggs.
    And will they have the same cooking time for the recipes posted by you and in your cookbook.
    I may also venture into meat recipes in the future. Thank you.

    1. Yes, the Fagor LUX cooks at the same pressures.. as your Instant Pot. BUT you’ll find that the LUX reaches pressure in half the time (about 5 minutes) and releases pressure much more quickly, too! So the egg timing might need to be adjusted. I haven’t had a chance to test eggs in the LUX myself, yet.

      Ciao,

      L

  7. Thank you for the helpful information!

  8. Are there any improvements versus the Fagor LUX non-LCD model, other than the screen?

    1. Yes, there are. There are 30 programs to choose from vs the 12 the current LUX has, with 3 Custom programs that allow the user to save time and setting for favorite recipes. The LUX LCD includes the stainless steel cooking pot ( not the ceramic nonstick one that comes with the LUX). It also includes a stainless steel steamer basket and trivet.
      The LCD model includes features such as :
      * sensor on the lid that warns the user if it hasn’t been locked properly
      * Icon that shows the unit is preheating
      * Screen color changes once the unit starts after reaching the selected pressure setting or temperature.
      Thank you.

      1. Thanks that’s very helpful! Sounds like it’s worth the higher price.

  9. Does the new Fagor have the ability to adjust the altitude like my Ultra60? I’m in Vegas @ 2,100 ft, so this would be important to me.

    1. Peter, this model does not have the ability to automatically adjust the altitude, it needs to be incorporated into the timing calculating the additional 5% cooking time for every 1000 feet above the first 2000 feet. Thank you.

    2. I also live in Las Vegas at 2100 ft and it makes no difference than when I lived at sea level. Once elevation exceeds 5000 is when it really makes a difference.

      1. I am at 3000 ft and DO notice a difference.

  10. Cam this model be used as a water bath or steam canner? I’m not talking about as a pressure canner but as a water bath or steam canner for things like jams, jellies or pickles that don’t need pressure cannin?

    1. Kathy, yes, it can be used as a water bath to can jams and jellies for high-acid foods only. This is NOT a pressure canner so it cannot be used to can low-acid foods such as meat, fish, poultry and vegetables. Thank you for allowing us to explain the differences.

  11. Thanks for the reply, Sara. Does the instruction manual indicate how to use the unit for water bath canning?

  12. Kathy, the instructions for canning high-acid foods will be incorporated to the manual soon. Thank you.
