Pressure cookers have experienced renewed popularity over the last several years because cooks have rediscovered what some cooks (particularly grandmas) have known for a long time--they're really fast. And it's easy to cook healthfully with pressure cookers, since the food retains so much more of its nutrients and flavor. Presto's 6-quart aluminum pressure cooker is a multi-purpose pot that can stand in as a conventional soup pot as well as perform the kitchen magic that pressure cookers are famous for. Chicken Cacciatore cooks in 8 minutes! This durable, polished-aluminum pressure cooker is an economical addition to any well-rounded set of kitchen tools.

The heavy-duty lid locks down during cooking; an inner sealing ring keeps the steam in. In addition to a pop-up pressure indicator and a simple steam release mechanism, there is an overpressure plug that will let off steam if it builds up excessively. This pressure cooker is useful for weeknight dinners or for any meal that needs to come together quickly. An accompanying booklet contains more than 65 recipes, ranging from basic soup stocks to stews and pot roasts--even desserts like 5-minute custards! Tenderize lean cuts of beef or pork; or cook chicken, fish, or vegetables faster than you can in a microwave, and without losing moisture.

Nonabrasive cleansers are best for cleaning this polished aluminum pressure cooker, though occasional use of a fine metal polish will help the exterior keep its shine. The Presto 6-quart aluminum pressure cooker is fully immersible; in addition, the sealing ring should be removed after each use to allow cleaning of the inside rim of the lid. The vent pipe is simple to keep clean with a small brush or pipe cleaner, and both the air vent/cover lock and the overpressure plug are removable. The pressure cooker measures 9 inches in diameter (17 inches including handles) and 8-1/2 inches tall (including lid). Presto guarantees this pressure cooker with an extended 12-year warranty. A detailed instruction and recipe booklet is included; special safety issues that pertain to pressure cookers are clearly explained. --Garland Withers

I bought this pressure-cooker three years ago on the recommendation of another person who has used hers for ten years. This pot cooks tomato sauce that tastes as if it were cooked on the stovetop all day, and makes stews in a third of the time. I LOVE this appliance for homey winter comfort foods! It's not scary to use and very easy to clean up. I also recommend buying Lorna Sass's pressure-cooking books for really tasty recipes that are easy to prepare.

I have been using this cooker for over a year now, my recent purchase being a second and repeat purchase. It is actually a no-problem cooker and requires no attention at all. Except the lower handle, whose screw could become lose after few months and keeps demanding some action with the screw driver, the cooker is virtually trouble free. For the money I paid, it is a great purchase. As you would see, I have bought a second one.

I absolutely love how food turns out in the pressure cooker. I made the best pot roast I have ever had in my life in this cooker. The only drawback is that aluminum leaves a bad aftertaste in acidy foods such as tomato sauces. If I had realized this before, I would have paid the extra money to get the stainless steel one.

Okay, I don't want to rain on anyone's parade here who love this pressure cooker but I just can't help myself from commenting on the good and not so good features of this cooker. I will preface my comments with the fact that I have owned many pressure cookers over the course of my lifetime. I currently own a large Fagor, a 15.5 qt All American cooker and my favorite a Kuhn Rikon 3916 Duromatic Top Pressure Cooker, 5-Quart.

Good Points

1. Good entry level cooker if you have never used a pressure cooker.
2. Easy and straight forward to use.
3. Good size for most household cooking tasks.

Negative Points:

1. Not easy to clean requiring more scrubbing that one might think to get off stuck on food in the bottom.

2. Can not put in dishwasher (yes, I knew that when I bought it) so not a really big problem for me but maybe for others.

3. Funky bottom on the inside. A recessed area inside the bottom of the pan - you think that makes it easier to pre-fry meat? No! Called the mfg. to ask why they would do this and they told me it was a way to create the thicker area for heat distribution and it is the size of most burners. They didn't mention that this was cheaper for them to make, using less material but they also don't care if you happen to have a stove with a bit higher btu's than the "standard burner." This thick area on the bottom protrudes on the bottom outside and it is recessed on the inside, something they fail to tell the unaware buyer!

4. Things stick while trying to fry and stick when even cooked with water during the pressure cooking process. Now I'm aware this is aluminum but I have never had that problem with my aluminum All American so did not figure it would be a problem when I purchased.

Does not can quart jars, only pints. This model allowed me to try out canning at a low entry cost. Have successfully canned cabbage and sausage, tomato sauce, tomatoes, garbanzo beans, and apple butter in this interesting device. Also have cooked whole chickens and other foods. Canning meats requires an hour under pressure, and the Presto takes it all in stride. Being a pressure cooker/canning novice, it was a little unnerving getting it hot enough to get that top valve rocking. Apparently idiot proof, the cooker does not blow up, is easy to use and clean. Just turn down the burner to medium once the valve starts rocking. The aluminum does discolor inside during some pressure cooking and canning, although putting a little vinegar in the water keeps this to a minimum. I have found that five pints is perfectly adequate for canning projects so far. For example, six pounds of homegrown apples turned into 5.5 pints of apple butter. And it's not like you can't load it up again. At first I didn't tighten lids enough -- the canning jars boiled over a little. Finger tight means just that and the glass can handle it. You can can with an eight quart Presto!

My Presto pressure cooker is about 40 years old, and I love it. It seems that they never wear out, except for the rubber seal in the cover. I recently had to buy a new one, and it cost about $12.

I think I have bought 3 seals over the years. I don't use the cooker very often though, maybe twice a month, only because I use other methods of cooking for a change.

Presto says that one should remove and clean the seal after each use, but each time you do this, it stretches a little, and fits less, and less into the lid. My seal doesn't wear out, it stretches out.

Now I just leave it in the lid, and wash it like that.

I do spread some cooking oil around the contact points on the seal, and the pot each time I use it, so the cover can be removed easily after cooking. If the seal sticks when you remove it after cooking, that also stretches the seal somewhat.

Again, I wouldn't be without a pressure cooker, it's great to have, and Presto is a top brand.
