Kuhn Rikon Duromatic Stockpot Pressure Cooker, 6.3-Quart
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.
Cooking with a Duromatic Pressure Cooker not only saves an incredible amount of time, it produces exquisitely delicious food. Vitamins are sealed in, instead of boiled away, vegetables keep their bright colors and flavors are so intense less seasoning is needed.
KUHN RIKON Duromatic Pressure Cooker features an automated lid-locking system and safety release back-up system to give you ultimate peace of mind.
The spring-loaded pressure release valve is a large knob marked with easily visible red lines so cooks can see at a glance whether the correct pressure has been reached. When it's time to release pressure, just turn the knob to indicators for slow or quick release of steam.
You see the exact pressure and know exactly when to start and stop cooking. So, there is no danger of overcooking and no noisy steam escapes. It's blissfully quiet. Cook healthy delicious meals in minutes, not hours.

Shaped like a classic stockpot, this pressure cooker has side grips and comes with a steaming trivet. Kuhn Rikon has revolutionized pressure cooking by inventing the automatic lid-locking system and the spring-loaded stationary safety valve. The only thing that hasn't changed is the principle by sealing ingredients and liquids in, foods cook in a very short time retaining flavor and vitamins and conserving energy. The generous size allows the cook to make enough for a small army. Cook a whole chicken, a 4-pound roast, even cheesecake! The pot's versatility will inspire you.

The only thing that was a little disconcerting was that neither the manual nor the cookbook showed the specific directions for how to assemble the top piece. Thus, I was a little concerned about whether we had all of the required parts. My guess is that the assembly instruction sheet went by the wayside with the packing material. But we figured it out, and it worked perfectly when we used it. Such little inconveniences are to be expected when one buys a repackaged product.
The night it was delivered, I made a recipe from the Internet that called for leeks, mushrooms, brown rice, fennel seeds, and saffron (omitted that, didn't have it), all cooked in a broth base. Once everything was chopped and thrown into the pot, the entire dish was done in 25 minutes. Normally I don't cook brown rice because it's always hard and dry, no matter how much water or broth I use, or how long I steam it. Let me tell you, the brown rice that came out of this pressure cooker was almost creamy. This was fantastic for someone like me who can't have dairy and totally misses those creamy risottos, as well as all other things dairy. The entire dish was so delicious, and I didn't have to stand over it and stir for an hour, either. Win!
I should disclose that this was my first attempt at using a pressure cooker. I am a pretty decent cook, but I have my share of flops now and then, especially with a new recipe and a new piece of equipment. So I was really jazzed at how well this cooker worked. It did take some experimentation with our gas stove to keep the pressure in the correct zone. It got too high at one point, so I simply turned the stove off until the pressure went back down to the correct zone. I wasn't sure how that would affect the cooking time (answer: it didn't). Next, I'm looking forward to making a carnitas recipe by Bobby Flay that I found on YouTube.
Cleanup was really easy, too - warm soapy water was all it took. NOTHING was stuck to the bottom at ALL - a common complaint with cheaper pressure cookers that don't have the heavy bottom that this one has. A few swipes with a dry towel and it looked like new. Believe me, I'm going to be scouring Amazon for any other deals on great cookware like we snagged with this one!
No longer. This one is easy to use, not very scary, certainly not explosive, and it cooks like a sweet metal dream. I've made my famous chicken stock/soup about 10 times already and it cooks faster and with no loss of water...and the bone broth gels every time now! I've also steamed veggies (trust the manual; if it says broccoli in 4 minutes, don't second guess the book and leave it in for 10, and then end up with green mush, like I did the first time.). And rice. And stew.
It's easy to clean, and I use it on an electric stove. At first it took a little playing around; when the pressure got too high I had to move the pot to a cool burner for a few minutes to wait for it to calm down before putting it back on the burner. I hate my electric stove (but that's for another review, I suppose.) But if I - a lifelong pressure-cooker-fearer, can cook with a pressure cooker over and over again on an electric stove, you can too!
Seriously, this thing is well made, kind of like a sexy streamlined metal tank. I'm not afraid of it. Give it a try.
I was initially a little worried because the Miss Vickie site recommends the cooker with one long handle, but I found that it gets in my way, and it's too heavy to lift one handed anyway. Now that I have it, I much prefer the stockpot or 2 short handled version. The cap thingy on the top is a little weird but seems to work fine. I saw some other people say that it broke, but I'm not sure how, because it doesn't seem to me like you should even need to take it off or mess with it unless you are cleaning out the vent, which I don't find needs done too often. Also, the 6 liter size is perfect for me, I cook for just me and my husband, but usually make several days worth of food at once.
Pressure cooking is the best cooking.
