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.

Mom bought me a pressure cooker when my wife and I got married, we used that cooker to death through the years, making bean soup, chili, stuffed cabbage, spaghetti sauce, etc. It finally crashed and burned.
So I looked and looked for another one and finally pulled the trigger on this one. I needed one big enough to put quart jars in and pressure can, plus to make certain foods that take up a lot of room ( stuffed cabbage ). Then i looked at the handle designs and was going to get the one with the two shorter handles and wider, but it would take up too much room in my cabinet.
This turned out to be just right. The pressure buttons on the lid and handle work smoothly and do not leak. One problem is my stove is a pro style stove with a lot of BTU's so I have to use the burners that clicks on and off to keep the pressure where I want it.
So I bought two more for my kids.
I went through a process of first, not developing enough pressure. Which would result in the food not being done when it should have been. Then I overcooked some veggies by a couple of minutes (which is all the time it takes to overcook something in a pressure cooker.). Once you go through the under and over cooking learning process, you get a feel for the cooker. At which point you can turn out perfectly done meals in a fraction of the time.
Not only will you save time. You'll save energy as well. Which translates into a savings worth learning about!
I am not a cook, I get the cooking "virus" and cook up a storm for about a week or two ( I freeze the results into meals for me) and then I get over the "cooking virus" and don't cook for a month or so…haha, but it is just me and I have fun with this pressure cooker, my neighbors are very happy when I am cooking, and they get to eat it too. :) Get this pressure cooker it is rated at tops by America Cooks on PBS and they are real cooks that love to cook and they love this pressure cooker.
My first few times using the cooker I re-read the instructions before cooking and reviewed each step as I went along. And I found out using this pot was straight-forward and learned I could make delicious meals like yummy tender pulled barbecue chicken more quickly and easily than I could cook a few hamburgers on the stove. But I have to say that my happiest discovery has been the ability to cook frozen chicken breasts straight from the freezer! I've found many pressure cooker recipes on the Internet and consider this cooker a real game-changer for even a kitchen-challenged cook like me. We're eating fewer microwaved frozen meals these days. And we've purchased a new duo for our youngest daughter who is at college. She will soon be cooking up meals on the weekends to enjoy during the week. And I owe it all to my brother!
