Pressure cookers are gaining momentum as the new healthy, time-saving, and energy-saving way to prepare food. While not a new method, the technology has certainly been transformed over the years to be easier and safer than ever. Constructed from 18/10 stainless steel for long-lasting durability, this 8-quart pressure cooker makes it possible to save up to 70 percent of the time and energy traditionally used in cooking rice, meat, and vegetables. The cooker's lid offers a long handle made of black heat-resistant plastic for comfortable use. A safety-lock handle, visual pressure indicator, and an automatic pressure-release setting ensure the lid won't come off unintentionally. For added convenience, the cooker provides a handy basket insert, complete with legs and a loop handle--great for draining pasta or steaming vegetables. Dishwasher-safe parts make cleanup a snap, and an instruction manual and recipe book come included. Designed for use on all heat sources, the pressure cooker measures approximately 17-1/5 by 11 by 10 inches and carries a 10-year warranty.

The knob on the handle that controls the pressure completely blew into smithereens. Don't know if this was an isolated defect on my unit but I won't buy another. Not that adventurous.
I went to America's Test Kitchen for their product review. The Fagor 8 qt was their highest rated stove top cooker under $150. The 8 qt was too large for my kitchen needs, so I opted for the 6 qt version.
The pressure cooker arrived carefully packaged, fully assembled and ready to use. It also came with an owner's manual (clear instructions), steamer basket and trivet, and pressure cooker cookbook.
A quick wash of the pot and lid, I threw in a 3 lb arm roast with beef broth and onions. It was tender, flavorful, and juicy, finished in 1 hour instead of 3-4 hours in an oven or 6-8 hours in a crockpot. And it didn't heat up my small kitchen.
I cooked Cuban-style black beans that I had soaked for just 2 hours, and they were done in 20 minutes. Firm, creamy, and very few had cracked.
Next, I cooked fresh green beans with rice in chicken broth. Start to plate: 15 minutes.
Finally, I cooked a flat iron (flank) steak with fresh tomatoes and garlic. Start to plate: 35 minutes. Again, flavorful and tender beef.
The cooker came up to high pressure in under 5 minutes, and maintained the pressure for the entire cook time.
The yellow indicator wand popped up and was easy to see to show the contents had reached the desired pressure.
There was the constant sound of escaping steam, but I found that to be preferable to the sounds of repetative steam releases from the old pressure/jiggle valve type found on the Hawkins.
The natural release for all the dishes I cooked was 7-9 minutes.
Removing the food was easy, and clean up was fast. The owner's manual says it's all dishwasher safe, but I prefer to wash it by hand.
America's Test Kitchen has yet to steer me wrong on product recommendations, and this is no exception. This cooker is more expensive than the Presto and a few others out there, but this is an investment for my kitchen that I expect to use quite often. In fact, I'm going to use it this weekend to make chicken stock in 40 minutes instead of 4 hours.
I considered buying an electric pressure cooker, but I'm very happy I didn't. I researched pressure cookers on 'America's Test Kitchen' before deciding on the Fagor Duo. America's Test Kitchen highly recommended the Fagor Duo, because of it's safety features, it's moderately priced and is well-engineered cooker has an automatic lock and an easy-to-monitor pressure valve. It tested at highest temperature 253 degrees. It has a wide, thick bottom which retains heat well, resulting in quickly reaching pressure, followed by steady, hands-off cooking.
I feel very safe using my Fagor Duo. It has safety features which are easy to see because they are in yellow. You can easily see the yellow indicator button pop up from across the room when it comes to pressure. It is important that you read the manual. I not only read the manual but also watched You Tube videos on how to use it. The very first thing I made in the Fagor Duo was a 4 lb pork shoulder roast. I cooked it for 1hr and 15 min. It came out perfectly cooked and moist. I've used it many times since then and have not been disappointed. This is very easy to use.
I am so happy I purchased this pressure cooker. It is one of my best pieces of cookware. I highly recommend it!
