This is not your grandmother's pressure cooker. After two generations of busy cooks employed pressure cookers to prepare family meals, the next generation--with memories of valves dancing and hissing on stovetops--then snubbed pressure cookers. Now pressure cookers have come back, those old valves replaced by modern versions that ensure safety while delivering the speed, ease, and nutritional benefits of pressure cooking.

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

Right from the get-go this pressure frying pan worked great. I felt sort of on my own because there aren't a lot of pressure frying recipes out there. But I am an experienced pressure cooker user so I felt fairly confident jumping in. One of my favorites is slow-roasted tomatoes, 2 hours or so in the oven - 7 minutes in the PC frying and I couldn't tell the difference. A beautiful job of frying potatoes, 5 minutes prep, 2-3 minutes browning potatoes, 5 minutes PC and you're ready to go. In other words you can brown and pressure cook with oil with this pan and when you add water, you add a lot less than with a regular PC. it's a well-made unit which you would expect for the price.

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.

We have had a 5.25 qt Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker for 4 years, for daily use that one was a bit big to handle. We were looking for a smaller 2.5 to 4 qt pressure cooker for quick one time portion meals for 3- 4 people. We tried other brands, both for money savings and variety, and after being disappointed with the construction and quality returned them promptly. We decided to plunge again into Kuhn Rikon, ordered this 2.5 qt Pressure Cooker. Wife is happy - appropriate for small, quick meals, is easy to handle, clean, and store. It feels and looks solidly constructed which makes it slightly on the heavier side for it's size.

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 had my 2 1/2 qt. fry/braiser/pressure cooker for over 10 years and just now need to replace the spring and pressure regulator cap. It heats evenly. Never burned anything and cleans up in a snap.

I've had a the 2L model for four years, and never had to replace any parts. I left that one at my second home so I will never be without one, and just purchased this 2.5L here. What seems like a loose screw on top is a simple, responsive and sturdy pressure release valve. The plastic handles would only melt if one were using a flame that extends beyond the sides of the pan. By heating it up at medium heat and reducing it to extra low once full pressure is reached, the flame will be nowhere near the sides of the pan, especially on this wider 2.5L model. This takes only a couple of minutes so I see no need for a roaring flame. Dual handles allow you to move the pan while hot, or hold it to run cool water from the tap over the edges for immediate pressure release when desired. The base is very thick so there is no burning of contents. The steam inside reduces all sticking and the lid comes off quite clean. I have electric rice cookers but almost always use the Kuhn Rikon instead because it is much faster and the texture of the rice is better. Only 25 minutes for brown rice, 5 minutes for white.

I have 2 Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers (2.65 qt purchased in 2008 and 5.25-qt model in 2007). They're great for cooking at sea level, but, now living at an altitude of 7,000-foot, I consider them to be kitchen essentials. If I could have only one size, I'd go with the larger 5.25-qt model and just cook extra food to freeze, since a minimum volume has to be met. Given my KR pressure-cooker love, though, it's nice having both sizes.

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. :))
