I got this item for Christmas last year. I've never used a pressure cooker, but at 53 years old I needed to learn to cook better. Presto is a trustworthy brand, and the stainless steel will last forever. 4 qt is a great starter size for 2 people. And the outcome of the cooking - my hubby LOVES it. Our first meal in the pressure cooker took 8 minutes to cook chicken breasts, vegis and rice. Very versitile too. I can cook my meat and vegis, then boil noodles or make gravy with the broth - all from the same pan. It's going to be my standard wedding present. Eventually I'd like a larger one for canning.

I missed my old pressure cooker and was pleased to see the selection offered at Kohl's. I would borrow my daughter's especially when making my beef stew. Can't seem to make it come out the same in a regular pan.
Good times ahead for beef stew and now that the wedding in my family is over, (so beautiful) I will again make German potato salad. Can't indulge in that too often though.
I also used my old one for regular recipes to curb cooking time seemlessly.

I have had my Presto pressure cooker for 35 years. It is the stove top "Microwave"! Food done in the pressure cooker taste so much better. Put very little water in 1/2 to 1 inche depending on how much food is in the cooker for things like vegetables (dry beans after being soaked for at least an hour are done in 12-15 minutes but do require water up to the top of the beans). Cooks Artichokes to perfection in 15 minutes, (can eat almost the entire inside of leaf, and have so much more flavor than when cooked in a pot of boiling water). Cooks carrots in 3 minutes (after it comes up to pressure, which takes about 5 minutes). You can get new seals easily, Presto is a great company. They have been in business since 1905. I love mine and am buying a new one for myself since I like the new styling and sometimes I need two cookers and one for each of my nieces.

I highly recommend this pressure cooker. It performs well and is easy to clean. I purchased this cooker to replace my 44 year old one that I received as a wedding gift. This one has a flat bottom on the inside which makes it easier to clean and allows the liquid to be evenly distributed under the food. The new design is sleek and cooking is so safe in stainless steel. You can't go wrong with this pressure cooker.
