After reviewing and researching both electric and cook top pressure cookers, I went with the Fagor 8 quart stainless steel cooker. There is a slight learning curve if you are used to using the old fashioned cookers with the weight. I was decided to try to cook macaroni noodles and it only took 3 minutes! Perfect noodles. This is now my go-to pot!
This is one pan that does it all! From frying to steaming and everything in between. I love the fact that it is a triply stainless steel, so it heats evenly. Since this is a heavy piece, the helper handle is a great addition. Lastly, it comes with a dome lid which helps with steaming seafood or corn.
Heavy multi ply stainless steel pan with strong riveted handles. The clear glass lid with vent hole is equally well constructed with a stainless steel rim and riveted handle. The ceramic Tagine is well glazed and easily matches the bright white standard for kitchen dishes. Perfect for low heat, slow cooking to bring out all the flavors in stews and meat. The pan is also ideal for cooking and serving traditional Spanish Paella. This is a big puppy! Buy and enjoy.

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.
