Pressure Cookers the Professional Chefs Choice

"The pressure cooker is a great time saving tool," - Chef Sang Yoon

Pressure cookers have long been used by professional chefs to create flavorful dishes in record time, and now a new generation of home cooks is embracing them for their advantages in preparing soups, meats, poultry, beans, grains, vegetables and even fruit. "The pressure cooker is a great time saving tool," explains Chef Sang Yoon, restaurateur, chef and culinary trendsetter. "At home, I always use it for potatoes and corn. Not just for the speed, but for flavor. The flavor is much more intense. It will almost be like tasting a potato for the first time." Enjoy faster, tastier, and healthier cooking with Swiss-made Kuhn Rikon Duromatic Pressure Cookers. Easy to use, it reduces cooking times by up to 66% versus conventional cooking. And because it cooks under pressure, foods retain more nutrients and color, for healthy eating and culinary appeal. The result is perfectly cooked, delicious and healthy meals made with less fats and oils. "To me, the pressure cooker not only gives me a speed advantage but also a way to impact flavors," explains Yoon. "I like to take a favorite braised meat recipe and prepare in the pressure cooker," he adds. "It takes less than half the time to prepare, yet all the flavors are more heightened." Prepare anything from stocks to risotto to desserts in the pressure cooker. Kuhn Rikon Duromatic Pressure Cookers lets you create delicious recipes that you might not otherwise make, such as Korean galbi jjim Pressure Cooker-Style from Chef Yoon. Pressure-cooking is also , another reason for its appeal to today's home cooks. When using Kuhn Rikon Duromatic Pressure Cookers, you'll use 70% less energy versus conventional stovetop cooking. A pressure cooker in your kitchen makes it easier to enjoy home cooked meals rather than fast food or takeout. "Since modern pressure cookers are so safe, anyone can feel comfortable using one," says Yoon. Safe and easy to use, Duromatic Pressure cookers feature an automatic lid-locking system, and five built-in pressure-release systems to ensure maximum safety during cooking. Available in a variety of sizes from 3 to 12 quarts, Kuhn Rikon Duromatic Pressure Cookers come in many of styles including traditional pans, stockpots and frypans.

Pressure Cooker Features:

  • Spring-loaded precision valve takes the guesswork out of pressure cooking
  • Five back-up safety systems prevent excessive pressure build-up
  • Integrated automatic lid-locking system
  • 18/10 stainless steel will not interact with food
  • Solid aluminum sandwiched between stainless steel for even browning and rapid heat absorption
  • Stainless steel steaming trivet included
  • 10-year warranty on all non-replaceable parts, material and workmanship


If cooking with a pressure cooker sounds old-fashioned, think again. Great strides have enhanced the Duromatic since its inception in 1949. Swiss company Kuhn Rikon has made the pressure cooker quieter, safer, and a smart option in today's world, given how quickly it cooks and how much energy it saves. Pressure cookers are rapidly gaining in popularity, and this one is an exceptional model crafted in Switzerland. You'll find such foods as rice, grains, stews, poultry, and vegetables cook in just one-third the time of conventional methods, and retain vital nutrients. Choose from a variety of sizes to meet any household's needs. By saving 70 percent of the gas or electricity normally used in conventional cooking, the pressure cooker can pay for itself in just months.

The Duromatic is constructed of 18/10 stainless steel that encapsulates a solid aluminum core in the base for quick, even heating. Put in your ingredients (recipes are included), and the integrated lid automatically locks and won't open under pressure. A new generation spring-loaded valve uses red lines to show you at a glance whether the right pressure has been reached, and when cooking is done, you simply turn the knob for quick or slow release. Unlike old models, the Duromatic cooks quietly, without hissing, and five safety releases let you rest assured the pressure won't get too great. Kuhn Rikon covers the dishwasher-safe Duromatic with a 10-year warranty on materials and workmanship, and guarantees parts will be available for 15 years. --Ann Bieri

This pressure cooker is probably the best on the market and a perfect size for a family. But, watch what you are purchasing, there are 2 separate types of lids on the Duromatic pressure cooker. This is the superior lid as it is easier to see the pressure, and turn it down to appropriate settings-fast release, slow release, with minimal effort. The other Kuhn Rikon's are awesome too. As far as I can tell, they are the same, with the exception of the lid/release. If you have the extra money, this is worth it--especially if you are a beginner. I regret that I bought the duromatic set without realizing the difference in the lids. I guess on the bright side, it means that I have pressure cookers in different sizes now.

If you are nervous about pressure cooking, there are awesome books out there to help lead the way-including pressuring cooking for dummies. My favorite is Miss Vickies Book of Pressure Cooker recipes, also found on amazon. She also has a website that offers a lot of free information as well as free recipes (although some have a small charge).

So, cook your food faster, save energy, retain more nutrients, and serve delicious homemade meals that seem like you have spent all day in the kitchen.

My wife recently mentioned that most people have pressure cookers. I don't know about that... but, now that we bought this Kuhn Rikon 7.4 quart pot, I have to say that I am very impressed and I feel I've been strangely uninformed all these years about the capabilities of a pressure cooker.

I've organized my thoughts into two categories: pressure cooking in general, and this Kuhn Rikon product specifically.

Regarding the magic of pressure cooking, we've tried a variety of items, including mashed potatoes, ribs and one-pot meals. They turned out very well. They were quick. They were simple. The pot cleaned up easily. The flavors seemed to be more "sophisticated" than I've typically produced on the stove. The flavors were all blended together as if they'd been simmering for hours. All in a matter of minutes. Pressure cooking authors Lorna Sass and Vickie Smith each offer pretty good cookbooks with plenty of good advice and recipes to newbies like myself.

One thing I would point out... I was skeptical about cooking something in a mere 4 or 6 or 8 or 10 minutes. And in a way, I was right. The cooking times associated with pressure cooking refer to the time once pressure has been reached. For me, on our gas stovetop at fairly high heat (I never use the highest setting), it takes about 10 minutes plus to get "pressurized". Then, after the cooking time has elapsed, you have to take the time for the pot to depressurize. This pressure reduction can take just a few minutes to about fifteen, depending on the method used. So, it is true you can throw a bunch of ingredients into a pot, close the lid and be completely done in a half hour, but I wouldn't tell anyone that dinner will be ready in eight minutes as you secure the lid and turn up the burner!

There's a good reason why the New York times reviewed this product and tagged it "The Mercedes of Pressure Cookers". This efficient piece of cookware is precision engineered and made in a modern Swiss factory where the best cookers have been made since the safe Durotherm was first developed here. On a visit to the factory we saw a clean, efficient facility which employs re-settled Tibetan refugees and uses robotics to shape these precision pots. The Duromatic factory adheres to high standards of European green manufacturing methods while producing a product as precision made as a Swiss watch.
The proof is in the cooking. We love our Duromatics, and have several in our home. For one thing it is quiet compared to older versions of pressure cookers, and safer due to several safety-release valves. When we cook things like split pea soup and roasted chicken we get perfect results with much less energy, heat, and cooking time than any other method of cookery. Once you cook artichokes this way you will never go back to your old method.
This particular size is ideal for most households and produces a family size meal in minutes. At the end it is all dishwasher safe.

I grew up watching my mother use a pressure cooker with a balancing weight on the lid - and constantly terrified that it was going to explode.

It has taken me 20 years to get over that fear - and after doing a lot of research, I finally bought a Kuhn Rikon Duromatic Pressure Cooker. As a working mother with two young children, I have NO IDEA how anyone survives without a pressure cooker. I use mine almost every day. Unlike a slow cooker, I'm not worried about whether my house is burning down because I left the slow cooker .... cooking.

I started with spareribs, which after 15 minutes tasted like they had been braised for 3 hours. Then I moved on to risotto, which after 6 minutes is delicious, creamy, and tastes like I slaved over the stove stirring it constantly for an hour. I have also made soups, which are quick and easy.

The pot is easy to use, easy to clean, and safe. Rather than wasting gas/electricity simmering a dish for hours, it's finished in literally a fraction of the time. And it doesn't sound like an airplane's landing in your kitchen.

This is by far the wisest kitchen appliance purchase I have ever made.
