Initially I was not sure whether I should buy 3 liters or 4 liters or 5 liters pressure cooker; and also whether I should go for Prestige or Presto pressure cooker? And also I was confused with stainless steel or Anodized type pressure cooker or aluminum cheap old traditional one? After detailed research, I purchased this pressure cooker. Lot of times I cook vegetables and rice and Dal (corns and other hard beans etc.) due to my vegetarian habits, and I feel this cooker is very useful and effective with a timely efficient cooking for my personal use. Since I cannot spend more time for cooking due to my Ph.D. studies, I feel happy with this cooker since I can save my time. I can use it as a frying pan as well.

Pros: Efficient cooking with less time which is the advantage of taking 3 liters size pressure cooker. Anodized metallic style makes cleaning the cooker at very ease. Cute and latest design. Can use it also as a nice frying pan, and use it initially as a frying pan and later on make good sambar or rasam or nice cauliflower or cabbage curry.

Cons: Good for two people and for more than two people probably size becomes small unless you want to use it as a nice additional cooker. Pouring directly from the cooker to your plate for the left-over cooked stuff becomes a little difficult due to the edge designing but I don't think it is a con to be considered that important. You cannot have separate cups within the cooker to cook rice and vegetables in two different dishes due to its small size, but as I am specifically looking for a small size cooker so that I can use it for frying pan and saving time while cooking as well as efficient stylish cooker easy to clean, this suited my needs perfectly.

I highly recommend it if you are happy with a less-size cooker with the above qualities.
Enjoy the delicious food!

Detailed info about these was sparse online. The unit does come with an insert, not mentioned anywhere. Though recommended for gas stoves, it seems fine on my glass-top electric. Looks fine, too! 99-cent-a-pound beef ribs succulent in less than one hour. I will be ordering the 5-liter Contura ... only wish I could find a bigger one to match. The Hawkins website lists a 6.5-liter model, but I can't find one for sale anywhere online. This 3-liter is a bit smaller than expected, but I am glad I purchased it.

I love this little pressure cooker! I wanted a smaller pressure cooker than American stores generally carry, as it's just the two of us; but I also wanted to be able to cook enough to have a manageable amount of planned leftovers, so I went with the larger of two sizes which Hawkins recommended for 2 people. This fits the bill quite nicely. The pressure regulator is of the rocker/whistle type, and lets out steam in bursts, which might take a little getting used to, but works extremely well. Due to the lip (which is what allows them to make such a small, light pressure cooker) you will need to use a ladle to dish out food cooked in it, but I haven't ever found that to be a hardship in any way, as that is what I would normally do anyway. As long as you've ladled out the food, there's unlikely to be food accumulated under the lip, and the anodized aluminium has always cleaned up very easily. It also looks sharp; the lid lock mechanism is ingenious, and easy to master; and this size is much easier to store than my old pressure cookers were. I love that parts are cheap, and most problems can be fixed yourself. The longer I have it, the more I appreciate how easy it is to use (even on my glasstop stove), and how efficiently it cooks.

I continue to be impressed with Hawkins' thoughtful design and safety features. It is so much easier to put the lid on their pressure cookers than conventional ones because the oval lid sits inside the opening of the pot, held in place by shape, size, and leverage of the handle, and there are no heavy, clunky lugs which have to be strong armed into place, which makes it simply impossible to blow the top off. Their shielding the safety valve, which would melt open should the pot boil dry and become too hot, would prevent food from spewing out in a fountain if that happened.

(If you cook moong dal, you'll want at least the 3.5L size.)

This is the ideal cooker and I've had a few different ones. When you cook chuck steak and some potatoes and onion you can't help but love it. Only downside and minor at that is the design makes for difficult pouring from the cooker, you lift contents out.

Everything I have cooked in this little guy has turned out great, but using it can be a little scary. Unlike other pressure cookers that emit a slow release of steam, this one builds up steam inside then BLASTS it in 15 second bursts every few minutes. The directions indicate that you should lower the heat as soon as max pressure is released, but even on low temps, the steam is still released in far-reaching blasts that are loud enough to make my dog hide under the couch. Once I filled it to 2/3rd capacity and the steam it blasted out was not just steam, it was the liquid of the food inside, so that made a huge mess.

Because of the lip around the edge, it's hard to pour food out of the pressure cooker and you have to use a ladle. The lip also makes it a little hard to clean and takes a long time to dry because water rests along the inside of the lip when turned upside down on a drying rack.
