This heavyweight 18/10 stainless-steel beauty is a fine example of contemporary engineering and style. Its mirror finish gleams, and its black handles stay cool. Its spring valve doesn't hiss unless too much steam has built up and the heat needs turning down. Two other valves offer backup safety, and the top automatically locks until all pressure has been released. Pressure-cooking traps steam to heat foods at temperatures higher than boiling. This cooker has an aluminum disk sandwiched by stainless steel in its base to speed the process even more through fast heat conductivity. Little water is required, so nutrients, flavor, and color are not boiled away.
At 9-3/4 inches in diameter and 3 inches deep, this 2-1/2-liter (2.65-quart) cooker resembles a deep frying pan. A waffle pattern on the bottom releases food quickly after browning. Cleanup is a bit involved: hand wash the cooker, rubber gasket, and lid with a mild detergent; lightly oil the gasket. Minor cleaning inconvenience, however, should not overshadow the major convenience of pressure cooking. Accompanying the cooker is a 92-page pressure-cooking recipe booklet. --Fred Brack

Those are the pros, the cons:
Instruction book inferior like many from Europe. Almost nothing about the frying pan and I find some of the suggested times to be a bit off too. Recipe book mixes in a few frying pan recipes with regular PC recipes which makes them hard to find. They need a separate frying pan instruction book and separate recipes for FP.
There is a little safety valve which comes unattached to the top. Difficult to find clear instructions on how to attach and once attached has a tendency to fall off. Poor design.
because of 'dimpled' bottom of FPPC no trivet is included as with other KR PC's.( Dimpled bottom supposedly acts as a trivet.) But some of FP recipes call for a trivet so it should be included.
If you are already familiar with pressure cooking then Kuhn Rikon is the best in class, and if you are already aware of Kuhn Rikon, there is nothing more to add. If the size is right for you, it will serve many, many years.
I've loved both of my KR pressure cookers & have used them regularly. At this high altitude, it takes a whole lot of precious fuel and half of forever for water to get to a low boil. I'd had my larger pressure cooker for a long time before it suddenly dawned on me that -- in addition to cooking things in it -- I could also save a ton of time & fuel when cooking pasta by boiling water in it to transfer into my regular pasta-cooking pot. If I used it only for that purpose, it would have long since paid for itself.
I'm surprised that I've not yet had to replace the gasket in either pot. I wash and store my gaskets gently but, even so, didn't expect their longevity and continuing great condition. I haven't had to replace any other parts, either. Upon other reviewers' recommendations, I purchased the KR Energy Saver / Flame Protect and highly recommend it. In addition to using it with my pressure cookers, I use it for (1) more even browning of food on the stove top; and (2) achieving a very low simmer, which is otherwise impossible to do with my stove burners.
For whatever it's worth, if the idea of pressure cooking makes you nervous, I used to be really scared of it myself. I'd heard too many horror stories about old cookers blowing up and how the cookers had to be constantly and closely monitored. My Kuhn Rikon pots have never given me a moment's worry, and I feel completely safe in using them. This has freed me up to worry about other stuff. :))
