I chose this particular brand because it comes with accessories and with the instant pot, you have to buy them separately. I have used this pressure cooker 3 times and it works well. My only complaint is the bottom buttons are grey and I cannot read the words on them. I had to pull out the paperwork that came with the pressure cooker to see what those buttons are for. Also, before you use it, take the inside pot out because there is a paper under neath it. Overall, I would recommend this pressure cooker. I have cooked rice and soup in it and it works great.
