Regardless, this thing is built like an army tank!
Old Gregg
Now I have another pressure cooker with the same type of lid closer and I have never had a problem with it.
J. Shattuck
The brass pin has become pitted and does not seal against the aluminum nut in the lid thus leaking steam.

I have had the Magefesa 8L STAR R since 2004. I bought it at a Home Show and probably overpaid for it (compared to AMAZON!). Regardless, this thing is built like an army tank! 3 safety features mean you are not going to paint the ceiling with a pot roast or more importantly scald anyone in the kitchen. You can buy cheaper PC's with lots of plastic on them, or you can buy a MAG with all metal parts (except for the handles and gasket). This thing is 18/10 INOX not that cheap-*ss thin aluminum like they sell at Wally-World. I'll admit I had sealing problems at first but I took the gasket out of the lid and washed it with a combination of dish washing detergent and white vinegar. Since then no sealing problems.

The food this thing makes is outstanding. The included trivet/insert makes the PC very versitile.

If you are not dumber than the directions (or me), you will love and trust this PC. PC's are the original microwave (fast cooking) and this Magefesa just brings a lot more to the table than the cheaper ones do, literally.

Get a good PC cookbook to compliment your MAG, my advice.

I actually purchased the 10 qt (and love it!) but wanted to mention that you can download the manual at the manufacturer's website since it is not included in the box. [...]

Purchased the item when parts for another pressure cooker could not be found. I have used the cooker for about 8 months and have found that the pressure safety valve is made of a brass plunger against an aluminum nut. The brass pin has become pitted and does not seal against the aluminum nut in the lid thus leaking steam. This part can not be found on any site for the cooker as a replacement part. For this reason I suggest buying a pressure cooker made in the USA.

I have used this pressure cooker since 2008. Although I have not cooked a variety of meals using it, I have pressure fried chicken wings 3 to 4 time monthly. After much research (and reading all the scare stories) about pressure frying I chose this 8 qt. model for the safety features and .55kgs/cms2 or in American about 8 psi. This fryer produces 10 wing pieces in 6 min. @ 350 degrees F using 2 qts. peanut oil. I cook as many as 60 pieces in about 40 min. and keep them crispy in a 200 degree oven. The results are outstanding and better than either baked or deep fried. They are cooked to the bone and not dry. My guests say they are the best they have had. As with much cooking/baking, method & materials play a significant role on the path to success. I recommend this Magefesa to be well worth the investment if you and your family/friends want perfectly cooked chicken wings. There is a modest learning curve. Use a thermometer to bring the oil to proper temp. and exercise appropriate caution as hot oil is obviously incredibly dangerous. Time is critical so thoroughly document your times/temp according to your stove-top's characteristics. Once you find your sweet spot ... enjoy!

I wanted a pressure fryer for home use and after hours of searching & researching finally found this product. Though I wasn't 100% sure whether it would serve my purpose, I went ahead and bought it. I was very apprehensive when I used it the first time for pressure frying. To my sweet surprise, the chicken came out really "finger lickin good". However, I would like to add a word of caution. The manufacturers clearly state that the product should never be used to "fry foods under pressure". If you choose to do otherwise, be very careful of the amount of oil you use (depends on the pressure cooker size). You don't want superheated oil spurting out from the steam pipe.

I've used this Pressure Cooker almost everyday for the last 8 years, and counting. The trick to using one of these is to be certain that the rim where the gasket meets the pot is completely DRY. This ensures a tight seal for fast heating. Also, wash the lid by hand, NOT in the dishwasher. Hand washing the lid will protect the gasket for many years. Enjoy!
