I don't see anywhere on the description that says what BRAND this is. A 12 yr guarantee doesn't mean a hill of beans if the company goes under . . . so who's brand is this?
Does what it is supposed to do, only problem was the lid is hard to get positioned for cooking. Otherwise it is perfect....

Does what it is supposed to do, only problem was the lid is hard to get positioned for cooking. Otherwise it is perfect.Read More
Pressure cookers are wonderful for making inexpensive cuts of meat quite tender and so for winter days, a good beef stew is very appealing to our family. Also, it can cut cooking time and for busy mother's this is a God Send.Read More
I've been pressure cooking for 30+ years, bought my first Mirro in college. First-some fool on here gave this cooker one star because it's Chinese-made. Guess what! No Presto, Mirro, Wearever, or any other brands are made in this country anymore. So what are we to do? Buy $200+ Euro products simply because of their country of origin? It's still foreign. That said, this Presto is a fine pot. It's heavily constructed with a substantial stainless-aluminum disc on the bottom; set the dial for no pressure and it can happily be used as a pot on the stove. Unlike my older 'jiggler' type cookers, this unit simply locks and emits a slight hiss during pressure cooking. In fact, if, like me, you're used to the 'jiggler' canners and cookers, this one will have you glancing over to the stove! I've cooked in it dozens of times now, both pressured and conventional, and have been nothing but satisfied. In fact, I got rid of my s.s. pot that was the same size, as this does dual duty. I'm all for supporting American jobs, but in a case like this where are are no domestic alternatives, just bite the bullet, enjoy the fine construction, and get on with your cooking.Read More
