I have used a pressure cooker for almost 35 years. This pressure cooker takes a very long to cook. Meat is never tender. It just doesn't do the job I am used to from other pressure cookers that I have worn out with use. I would NOT recommend this to anyone.Read More
I bought this as a gift for a friend. She loves it. She uses it at least three times a week.Read More
I purchased this 6 quart Pressure Cooker for one purpose.....make chicken soup for my Rottweiler puppy. It is easy to use and has great quality for the price and size.Read More
I have a smaller pressure cooker at home that whistles and rocks. It is not nearly as easy to use as this one. I plan on purchasing another one as a gift.Read More
I loved my pressure cooker so much I bought one for my sister.Read More
This is my 4th pressure cooker in as many months. I first bought a super cheap one to make beans for my Colombian exchange student, and was amazed at what a pressure cooker could do. The lid on that model was horrible and it became unusable within a week, but hey it was $10 new. That one had a rocker style release, which was a bit noisy and crazy, but was awesome in that you could "hear" when it went to pressure. Strike one. Next one, the Wolfgang Puck model off of Overstock. Started good, liked the electric set it and forget it, but it stopped working with only a few uses and past the return time by less than a month. That is a separate review, but avoid that model. I then bought a stock pot size of a Fagor and LOVED it! Hence, the purchase of this smaller model. Let me start with how easy it is to get the gasket in and out and the lid on and off. No small feat mind you given my experience with the other models!! Very easy, and when you release the pressure it is managed well, unlike my cheap model spewing foulness up on my ceiling one day. Next, it comes to pressure quickly and cooks evenly- fantastic meals for my family in minutes! Clean up is also very simple. You can tell when this comes to pressure when a little part pops up, sorta like a pop up timer on a turkey, but on a smaller scale. This makes it quiet, although I feel like I should monitor it until this occurs to adjust the heat. Pressure cookers save a boat load of energy so you can feel good about it being a green choice. This bad boy seems to be very durable, and I am super harsh on kitchenware, and even I do not think I will mess this up. Recipes are critical to a good experience if you are new, and I would encourage you to purchase a good cook book- Lorna Sass is a good author that I can recommend either her Pressure Perfect (a great intro for beginners) or her One Pot version (my kind of cooking). Examples of what i cook- unstuffed cabbage rolls literally from start to finish (including chopping) 15 minutes, pasta with homemade sauce in under 15, beef stroganoff (frozen meatballs for the meat) in less than 20, and all of these times include the time it takes to pull out the cookware, dice and dump ingredients in, cook, and serve. A working mom's angel! I also now make homemade chicken broth with excellent quality compared to what I used to buy and a whole lot cheaper. For the first time in my life I made pinto beans starting from the dried state, and it was wonderful. I am only just getting started with recipes, so you can imagine how much more you can do that I have not even started yet!Read More
I have used pressure cookers for a long time and this is my favorite one. The size is great. For those, like me, who didn't know how big to go, the 6 qt cooker is good for curries when you are using 1-2 pounds of meat but it can also do larger quantities. I needed a larger pot and I have a 4 qt, which is too small for my needs. It is a heavy stainless steel and I would steer away from aluminum due to the nature of its use. Aluminum won't last as long, and there is a reason it's cheaper than the stainless. I really love this, I would recommend it to anyone...Read More
This is the best pressure cooker I have ever used, and I have used different ones for the last 30 years of cooking. The Fagor cooks faster and more evenly than I've ever known a cooker to do. The release valve is an excellent option. Overall a great buy making great food results.Read More
I've used a presure cooker for many years and needed to update my old one. I'm still experimenting with this one; but am pleased with results so far. I would be cautious the first few times when cooking vegetables as they can easily overcook to mush. This is a nice large pot suitable for a whole chicken or lots of vegetables. A great way to cook quickly while retaining vitamins and minerals.Read More
I am enjoying this pressure cooker specially when I cook meat. It is done in a fraction of the time it usually takes to cook in a regular pot. The inside stained the first time and I cant take them out. The outside is shiny and easy to clean. Great product. Every day I trust Overstock more and more.Read More

Green Kitchen Buying Guide
They say the kitchen is the heart of a home, but in many homes, it's also the biggest source of energy waste. Kitchen lighting, refrigeration and cooking consume about 41.5 percent of the total home energy use; add space heating, cooling, and water heating to that total, and you'll see your kitchen is quite the energy hog. Creating an eco-friendly kitchen includes your choice of appliances, but it also goes beyond that; the floors, paint, pots and pans, and other kitchen items you use can make your kitchen eco-friendly as well.
