Never used a pressure cooker before, but since I have two boys very active in after-school sports & activities, I looked into it. I LOVE the Fagor! My first attempted meal took 30 minutes from slicing/dicing the ingredients to the meal coming out of the cooker!! The meat was nice and tender and very flavorful. My family loved it too. I used the larger pot to steam corn-on-the cob - so quick! I also bought the Miss Vicki cookbook. The book that comes with the cooker is very limited. The instruction manual says that the cooker pot (not the lid) is dishwasher safe, but I still hand-wash it - very easy clean-up.
The looks of this tea kettle caught my eye, but I wouldn't have bought it unless it had all the features I was looking for. This kettle heats water quickly, whistles loudly, operates easily and doesn't drip. I purchased it as a gift for my parents (in their 80's) and they LOVE it! That red color catches everyone's eye - it looks like a sports car sitting on the stove! I'll be getting one of these for myself, as well.
