This cooker saves my overall cooking time.
S. Sethuraman
It is very safe as you just can not open lid when cooker is pressurized but one needs to get used to closing it.
Pravin Pathak
It works very well, heats up fast, is easy to clean, relativly quite while under pressure, and cooks great.

Having owned one of these pressure cookers I can say from first hand experience they are top of the line. My family has used the same pressure cooker now on almost a daily basis for 5+ years. Yes that is an almost daily basis (usually it gets used 5-6 times or more a week). The cooker is still in GREAT shape. We have replaced the gasket once and that is it. The cooker is extremely well crafted with thick aluminum that reminds me of high end cookware like Calphalon, Analon etc. Honestly, you can't get much better than this. PERIOD! It heats well, cleans EASILY and exudes quality.

I have owned two Futuras for many years- so long ago I cannot remember the purchase date. Used frequently and still have needed not needed replacement parts. So glad they are still in production.

I have this cooker and I love it. I use it very often - 4 or 5 times a week and it has served me quite well. I have had other pressure cookers too and I think this is easier to clean and cooks faster as well.

I read several people have issues with closing the lid. I made a very short video to help them. Doing it this way, you can even avoid dipping the lid in the food being cooked.

Another problem that many people have mentioned is that the steam whistle is loud, or that the steam whistle also emits some of the food being cooked and makes a mess.

To avoid the steam whistle, try this:
1. For the first few minutes, set the heat on the highest setting till the water starts boiling and there is steam coming out of the lid.
2. After that, lower the flame to a low setting - this will make sure that the pressure is building up, but not so high that steam needs to get out of the cooker.

I use the timer to monitor the cooking time - vary this according to how much you are cooking. I have had soaked chickpeas (2 cups before soaking) cooked to perfection within 17 minutes in total.

I use timers on my stove and this method has worked very well, with minimal attention to be paid to the cooker.

Size Name: 1.5 LITER Verified Purchase
I was looking for a small pressure cooker that could be used for camping or for making smaller quantities of food at home. This was the smallest I could find and I'm totally pleased with the quality and the price.

I don't think I would backpack with it, but it's ideal for canoe camping or car camping. I'll be using it at home most of the time because it's just the right size for making a quick meal of lentils or rice.

The handle does take up space. That's unfortunate for travelers and those with small kitchens. I would have preferred a design that had small grips on either side of the cooker.

Its too small for most published pressure cooker recipes. Too many authors assume that everyone cooks for a large group. If you do cook for groups, consider something larger. This cooker is ideal for the rest of us.

Size Name: 9 Litre Verified Purchase
I have been waiting to write a review for this product so I can use it and help others. If you are looking for a Superior quality and featured filled pressure cooker then look no further than this Futura. Anodized material used is visible in all aspects of the cooker. I am using the 9 Liter version the biggest that they make. I read other comments on trickiness of closing lid mechanism. It is designed to close this way by keeping safety aspects in mind. One pretty much can cook worry free since the risk of blowing up on you are none. A melting safety valve and inner closing lid mechanism is almost fool proof. I highly recommend this pressure cooker to any cooking lover and as an essential kitchen utensil.
Been using it to minimize time and energy for meat boiling. I have used Mutton/Beef. It takes some time to learn as with every pressure cooker as to how much water to use.
My cooking time for both Mutton/Beef is right around 17 minutes. This is in North Central GA-Georgia with Elevation of: 808 feet (246 m) above mean sea level. Your cooking time will vary slightly depending on elevation, water type and off course type of vegetable or meat used.
Other Imported Cookers (Europeans) cost lot more.
This cooker also comes with an extensive detailed guide on Usage, care and maintenance. Recipe guide book is also well elaborated.
There is a cleaning brush included which was almost hidden in the box. Please make sure that you take it out from the inside sleeve case of the big box. I nearly threw mine away.

Verified Purchase
This pressure cooker is a very high quality product and at a very reasonable price. I am amazed at the quality of the product and the convenience of using it. Since it is almost non-stick, cleaning it is also very easy. This product was far better than the $200 fagor futuro pressure cooker set that i had bought which ended up leaking steam. When I compare the two there is just no question on how far superior this pressure cooker is. This pressure cooker also conserves more energy and water than the classical Hawkins cookers as it doesn't go through the cycle of leaking a lot of steam every few minutes (the whistle). Once you hear the hiss of steam, you lower the heat and start the timing. For those who are trying to decide steel vs aluminum, I think its a no-brainer now that I have used a steam pressure cooker. Steel just doesn't cook evenly, even with the aluminum sandwiched at the base. I was so impressed that I ordered a second Hawkins futura pressure cooker to replace my old traditional aluminum pressure cooker.
