Since I adore cooking, I rarely look for short-cuts and I had forgotten all about pressure cooked foods until having a family myself.
Serving a healthy cooked-from-scratch meal every night after work while caring for a little one? Not easy with only 30 to 60 minutes available...
This pressure cooker solves a lot of that timing issue and leaves me plenty of time to focus on other tasks. During week nights, I use it mostly for vegetables: you simply put the veggies on the stainless rack (provided with the cooker) or your own steam basket, add about a cup of water, lock the lid in place and start the cooking. The start of the whistle is when you start counting down your time.
The booklet accompanying this cooker is far from accurate and you will end up with overcooked veggies if you follow it (soup anyone?) so it may take you a few tries to figure the perfect cooking time. As examples, whole big potatoes are ready within 15 minutes, large broccoli florets in 1 min, trimmed green beans in about 2 min...
As soon as you reach your desired cooking time, place the cooker under running cool water to stop the cooking immediately and bring the pressure down. The material of this Presto cooker is thick stainless and I feel comfortable doing that without risking to damage or crack a piece.
There is usually little water left at the bottom: my Mom used to drink it once cold saying a lot of minerals were in there (?) but I prefer to reserve it for soups or broth.
Clean-up of this cooker is a breeze. My husband does it by hand as a habit but I feel very comfortable putting the various pieces into the dishwasher.
There are 4 pieces. The heavy bottom stainless pan does not tend to attach food, even braised meats. The lid receives only steam so is very easy to get clean. I run a scrubby along the black gasket and the steam weight only needs to be wiped.
The size is enough for a whole meal for a family of four to six but can also cook small portions (adjusting the time down even more). You can easily cook several pounds of vegetables at once too.
Overall, a great buy to get a few minutes of my time back and a very good quality cooker. Highly recommended for your busy kitchen.
Hearing my 2 yr-old say "bro'lli, cau'fower!" at the sound of the whistle is great too!
It takes 15-20 minutes to heat a 4 cup soup to pressure cooking pressure, cooking time starts then. So most soups say cook for 1/2 hour. Thats closer to an hour adding in build up time.
I dont use much salt but pressure cooking seems to exaggerate the taste of salt. Use 1/2 the salt you normally would. Add later if needed.
As soon as the pressure cooker comes up to steam (the center valve will start to rock on this model) start reducing heat a little at a time until the rocking is gental but does not stop. This will reduce the burning of food on the bottom of the pot. Especially with rice as this is not an electric pot with one of those push button rice buttons. When I saw the burnt food I was worried but for some reason the burnt taste does not contaminate the rest of the food as long as you dont scrape the pot.
I did try one of those electric pressure cookers with push button settings. They're neat and automatically stop and have a warming mode when done. But the one I got broke after 4 meals and I sent it back. Then I said the more it does the more chance to fail, I also said do I want to spend $100 or $40. But if I like pressure cooking and a year goes by I might ask my kids to buy me an auto pot again next Christmas. Maybe they will have been improved.
This may be 5 stars for the type of cooker it is. Again the food does taste fantastic.

The pressure steam release rubber button fell out and into a complex soup while cooking, thank God I was done and had the cooker in the sink. Finally found it after straining the soup. Went to return the product, IM one week past the warrentee. Replaced the rubber valve which was easy but n o w I have to worry it will happen again.Just a pain we should not have to go through. Added an hour to cooking time. So what good is that.
