You can cut cooking time of your favorite foods by as much as 70-percent with this pressure cooker. This cooker retains healthy nutrients that are lost in conventional cooking and make mouth watering meals.
Capacity: 16 quarts
How many settings: 5, 10 and 15 PSI pressure controls
Safety features -- locking handle, overpressure release valve and gasket release window
Dimensions: 18.5 inches long x 12.2 inches wide x 15.5 inches deep
First of all, take in mind this is a 16-quart cooker: huge. My husband keeps on making fun of how I am going to cook for all the neighborhood, but it has to be that big if you want to prepare food for a lot of people or to freeze it and have healthy "fast-food".
Second, it is not said on the description but it is on the box: NOT for ceramic or induction stoves.
Then, even though the aluminium does not look very good, the safety features seem outstanding. Three or four different ways to prevent an accident working at the same time. And the accident will not happen if you follow the main rule for this kind of cookware: do not open if there is steam coming out. So this cooker is nosy-husband-safe! It has a manual explaining everything.
It also includes three overpressure release valves with different weights to choose depending on how full is the cooker.
So, 1 star down for the cheap looking aluminium and another because it cannot be used on ceramic or induction and that is not even said in the description.

I looked for over a month to find the old model of this pressure cooker, it holds 7 quart jars. The new model version only holds 5 quarts. I was so happy to find it here & for a great price. I also love that it has the jiggler pressure control & not the gauge. Great product & it arrived ahead of schedule.
The cooker worked very well. I used it for a pork stew. It performed exactly as promised and cooked the stew,
a large amount for a big family, in only two pressure settings. The first was meat only for 20 mins. The second
time was for added veggies, potatoes, carrots, onions, etc. for only 10 mins. A huge stew, done to perfection
in 30 mins. Great!

Hello lwoodruff, although the bottom of this cooker is flat you may want to check with the manufacturer of your range for additional information. Thank you for shopping with us. Vicki Hoverstockcustomercare2 on Oct 8, 2014
what pressure settings does it have available? The details say 1 setting but another reviewer indicated has 3 different weights for 3 different pressure settings but didn't elaborate. You need high pressure to can low-acid foods. So many contradictions on this Q&A. One says comes with canning rack another says pot and instructions only. Please clearly state what comes with it and what the pressures are. Thank you.dhkoepp on Jun 5, 2013Please enter a valid question.Answer This Question
