I needed a large induction-friendly stock pot. Most were too expensive, others had poor reviews. So I changed my search criteria from induction stock pot to induction cookware and voila! It looked like the Fagor America Splendid 10-quart Pressure Cooker would be large enough to use as a stock pot, yet not so large that I would have trouble carrying it when full. It promised to work with an induction burner and was offered at a great price. But would it live up to its promises? Absolutely! It is made of a material that is so magnetic that it will bring a quart of water to a full rolling boil in less than a minute on my Electrolux EW30CC55GB, yet it did not react (rust or pit) with a tomato-based soup that sat in it overnight. Its footprint is large enough to fully unitize the large burners capabilities with no discernable hot spots, and it works perfectly as a pressure cooker, too! A++
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.
I love this pressure cooker. It's high quality, does an excellent job and seems very safe. Fagor is one of the most recommended brands and I'm happy I bought this. Good price on the overstock site as well.
