I'd been thinking about buying a pressure cooker for a while, and finally took the plunge. Not sure what the other options are in terms of brands, but I have found the Practika Plus to be an excellent choice. Now that I have it, not sure what I would do without it.

I had never used a pressure cooker and quite frankly I feared them. Had images in my head of lids blowing off and magma-hot food maming a kitchen full of guests. My sister got an electric pressure cooker and de-mystified the concept. I don't have much space for gadget storage so I wanted a small stove top version. I found this little 3.2 here on O.co and decided to give it a shot. Love at first try. I cut a pork roast into chunks, gave it a splash of soy sauce and some water and let it go for an hour. It shredded as if I had slow roasted it for 4 hours. My favorite use is to make stock. In one hour i get the same result as 6 hours of simmering. I think I might give this one to my son and get myself the 4/6 qt set (one lid fits both)!
i bought 3 of them, i for me , one for my daughter who just got married and one for my nice who is getting marry in feb. this is very good size for small family, don't have to cook a lot each time. Easy to clean, even shiner than Fissler cooker. I'm going to buy more for friend's daughter if there is any promotion
I'm sure it will perform well when I do try it. Will probably cook beans for my first try. I do wish that the book had more recipes in it. I especially like that it's stainless steel and not made in China. I will not buy any food grade utensil from China, I don't trust them. I have an older, much bigger cooker that I am giving away. This is a more manageable size, and is easy to open and close, being that I have some hand issues.
I looked at many different types of pressure cookers for 3 days on many different websites and stores! Thank you to Overstock.com for providing this excellent cooker at a reasonable price in comparison to others! This is a second generation cooker and has great bottom for best results!

Got this mostly for cooking twice a week veggies for making pure for our baby girl. It works well, it saves time and food is great. For us, we cook once in a while potatoes for making mashed potatoes for two and is just the right size. Warning: the surface is highly polished stainless so avoid using any harsh cleaning agents (including the dish sponges with pads). Also, on the bottom, it is stamped the size of the burner. We went one size larger but not on full blast (6 out of 10), and once pressure is reached, we cut the gas to minimum (2 out of 10). Works like a charm.
- Please tell us about the quality of the product. Very good quality, easy to use, efficient for regular size meals or baby food.
I was looking for a stainless steel pressure cooker in a smaller size and they are very hard to find. This is the perfect size pressure cooker for two. I use it mainly to prepare all kinds of beans, garbanzos, etc and it is great. If you have had a pressure cooker in the past and are used to the hissing sound, you will be pleased because this one is quiet.
