I read lots of reviews on pressure cookers before making my selection. It seems like the top contenders for quality and ease of use are Magefesa and Kuhn Rikon. The latter is pretty stinkin' expensive, but very good quality. I decided on the Magefesa, as it was high quality without the high markup in price.
Its a very nice pressure cooker. Its very simple to use, and the safety features are nice. I like the dial selection for low or high pressure. One note: I've seen several specifications that say it has three pressure settings, but it only has low and high (plus vent). No medium setting, which is fine, but causes some confusion.
As with most other reviews, I'll also add that Magefesa should invest in a native English speaker to translate (or write) their instruction booklet. It reads as though they used Google Translate on it. Some of the errors are comical, while the rest of it can be difficult to understand at times. Overall, its easy to clean, cooks evenly and nice, and seems to be well-built. I wish it came with the steam basket, but it doesn't.
I am very pleased with the purchase. Zero buyer's remorse with this purchase. Had an issue with the shipping, but customer service was great and gave me a discount even though I did not think it was warranted. I am completely satisfied with both the purchase and Overstock's commitment toward customer satisfaction.

The pressure cooker comes as a pair and both sizes of the base work really well. The only complaint is that I would like to have seen a steamer plate at that sits in the bottom of the base to keep the food off the very bottom of the base for better cooking. The instruction book is very basic, and requires reading throughly but gives all the appropriate information. the set looks great and has become an integral part of my cookware apparatus.
Some of the Practika Plus pressure cookers sold individually also have a slow cooking level. Does this 3 piece pressure cooker set have 3 levels as well?jsp1003 on Jul 6, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
