Wife wanted something newer than her near 40 yr old Presto 6 qt unit - hence my purchase of this model 01362 (stainless steel not aluminum). The old long serving 6 qt stainless is larger in overall size and a lot heavier. This new one is a lot lighter, but in cooking more than several things in past two weeks, she was thrilled that it did all with no issues, and it was a snap to pull out and clean the sealing ring/gasket. Older style was sometimes an issue to put in or take out. This is model is taller, but capacity is the same and it is lighter too. Note: This item was made in China, as many things are. So far no problems and it does what it is designed to do.
I bought this set for our new coach. Wanted Made In USA. The product description says it's made in the USA but pans are made in Thailand lids and utensils are made in China. I am trying to purchase only items made in the USA so am extremely disappointed that these are not. Have yet to use them but they seem to be of a decent quality.
