Fantastic pressure cooker
 from San Diego, CA,  Jan 19, 2012

I learned all about pressure cooking with a 21.5 qt American Standard pressure cooker/canner. The ability to cook stews and soups in 4-15 minutes with a layering and richness of flavor greater than anything I could do in 10 hours wa fabulously addicting. I used it daily for 5 years and I still use this huge pressure cooker, as will my children and their children since these are built like tanks. Since I had originally bought the 21.5 qt model for canning, and it was bulky for everyday use, I purchased different styles and brands of smaller pressure cookers and was never as pleased with them as I am with my American Standard. Many of the other cooktop models limited pressure ranges with some of them not even getting 15psi which is standard for stews and soups and none of them have pressure gauges. The electric pressure cookers take 81 minutes to make stew. It takes 11 minutes in pressure cooker that gets 15psi. The other cooktop cookers have little buttons that pop up to tell you when pressure is reached but these usually pop before pressure is reached and you have to watch for a certain amount of steam....pure nonsense once you have used an American Standard pressure cooker. It is built like a tank, has a rocker to let you know when ideal pressure of 5/10/15 psi is close and a pressure gauge so you know exactly what the pressure is.... I looked everywhere for a smaller size American Standard pressure cooker and couldn't find one anywhere. KUDOS Overstock! I am now using the best pressure cooker on the market in an everyday size. Thank you! I am ordering another one for my mom. Th
