We have owned this pressure cooker for a few years. It has served us pretty well and has frustrated us plenty as well. The gaskets in these break down and release all of the pressure. You may end up playing the game of opening and closing the pan a few times to get it to pressurize. It is a good sized pan for doing a bag of beans, or a simple meat dish for less than 6 servings.

If you have been afraid of the pressure cookers, don't be any longer. These gadgets are very safe and will turn you into a world class frugal gourmet. The safety features are so numerous and foolproof that they border on ridiculous. The old days of exploding pressure cookers is gone; unless you can find a way to bypass at least 6 safety mechinisms. Buy one, maybe not this one, and save on cheap meats and low priced beans and legumes. They cook up so tender and so flavorful and so fast that you will never want to live without one again.

I purchased this cooker a couple of years ago. After a few gentle uses, I noticed that the bottom was warped, causing it to wobble on the stove. I know that if it's not sitting flat, it's not making good contact with the burner. I don't give space in my kitchen to products that can't stand up to use. Do not buy this Mirro pressure cooker. It isn't worth the money. I bought the Presto stainless steel 4qt pressure cooker, and can't say enough good things about it. Read my other reviews. You'll see that I don't give negative reviews unless they are deserved.

I was hesitant to use at first but now we use it almost weekly! Throw in a can of stock, some onions & Pork chops - delicious in 12 minutes, how can you beat that! Wish it was a little bigger

This smaller cooker works fine for our empty-nest family. I would have rated it as 5-star if it had been furnished with a grid to prevent scorching. Otherwise it works as I expected it would.

We've used pressure cookers for 38 years in 1976 we got for our wedding .So when the handle cracked we were lost so the quickest way to get one is on the web .I ordered it and got my cooker in 2 days I'am very pleased with the new cooker

Used to the older Mirro cooker/canner. Wore mine out so purchased this one. I do miss the various controls I had with my old one but it did well on cooking a roast. Will take some getting used to, but it is nice.

Had a mirro prior to this one for 16 years, great product . escape valve on this model is not well design, steam and water splash out all over pressure cook and walls, when temperature arises.

The blurb for this pressure cooker doesn't mention that it only operates at 10 psi, not the usual adjustable 5, 10, 15 psi. So this is a good product if you want to do the math to convert all your pressure cooker recipes. I don't. I sent it back.
