Works great, just one flaw

Pros:Safe, quiet, simple to use and easy to clean up. Works great, and seals quickly.

Cons:Pressure limit valve cracked with little use.

The Bottom Line: I highly recommend this pressure cooker. It's easy to use and doesn't require any bravery--it's quiet and works safely and well.


I have had this pressure cooker for about a year now. Most are afraid to use pressure cookers at all--they hiss and act scary and everyone's heard the explosion horror stories.

Pressure cooking is wonderful--moist tender food in a fraction of the time. You just had to be brave with the older models.

I've been pressure cooking a long time, and my most recent model was a 1960s stovetop number with very little in terms of safety features.

This cooker is electric, so you can use it anywhere, it's quiet--it makes a little noise as it comes up to pressure but once it does it's silent. And it's safe. If it builds up too much pressure, the kettle inside pushes down which breaks the seal (not that this has ever happened) and so no chance of explosion.

It also just does everything on its own. Old style cookers had to be brought to pressure at high heat, then turned down and babysat a bit to be sure it didn't over pressurize. This one is very set and forget. You tell it how long to cook and at low or high pressure, and it does the rest.

The inside kettle comes out and you can just throw it in the dishwasher, so cleanup is a snap. My mom's old electric one won't let you submerge it so it's hand clean.

The only thing I've had a problem with is the pressure limit valve. It's the little steam release valve on top. It is a metal piece with a plastic cover. The plastic cover cracked about the third time I used it and now it's two separate pieces. It still works but it's inconvenient to let the steam out. They do sell replacement parts for it though and I think it's only about a $15 repair.

All in all, highly recommended for the experienced and inexperienced pressure cook. No bravery required!
