Trendy Kid Boy Plaid Letter Print Colorblock Casual Set Review
casualviews: I cook daily in a pressure cooker so this product is very important to me. I have a Hawkins 2 liter cooker, prestige 3.5 liter and a presto 6 quart pressure cooker but they are all aluminum. I've had the presto 6 qt aluminum for at least over 6 years. It works very well. The best thing about it as compared to Hawkins and Prestige is that it doesn't let pressure off in loud installments (which scares the kids), its more like a consistent whistle.The main reason to buy the 4 qt steel cooker was to have a size between the ones I already owned, suitable for a family of four, and also the reason that stainless steel doesn't react with the food, which is important to me because I often marinate the meat before cooking certain dishes.The new presto has a flatter bottom which sits better on my cook top unlike the old one which rocks a little bit, the heating is even and its easier to clean as well. What I didn't like is that the steaming plate that comes with the cooker is made of aluminum. But its not a deal breaker for me. I think that Presto is a very dependable brand and I'll happily recommend it to anyone.
catherine wampler: It is a good pressure cooker. I only have one complaint. The handle seems to loosen after using it several times. I had another one, and it did the same thing. I just tighten it. Presto is one of the best, but I think they should address the handle problem.
Catrinka: I remember a bit of a kitchen disaster during my childhood when the seal blew off my mother's pressure cooker. Even after a thorough wipe down of cabinets and walls, we were still finding bits of broth and meat fat blown everywhere for the next few days. I've lived in fear of them ever since, but finally decided to take a chance on one after reading that the models made after 1990 were much safer.I'm glad I changed my mind. It's super for quickly making beans and brown rice which otherwise take so long. Meat browns easily in the pan and then, when sealed, those cuts of beef, pork, or chicken cook and tenderize in a flash to be used in burritos, enchiladas, or pasta meals. Everything cooks to perfection in just a fraction of the usual time.I like the fact that this Presto model is stainless steel rather than aluminum. However, since aluminum is a better conductor of heat, this Presto model has a bi-metal base with a disc of aluminum welded to the outside bottom of the pan. This pressure cooker set includes a special insert rack that allows you to cook multiple foods at once without their flavors intermingling. (This, of course, only works if the various foods are not suspended in the same liquid together.)This Presto model is safe because it won't open while still under pressure. If you're pressed for time, you can run cold water over the lid or set the pan in cold water to drop the pressure more quickly. When filled, it is a bit heavy and it take two hands for me to carry it.Clean-up isn't difficult. I wash it by hand even though it is considered dishwasher-safe. The top can be soaked in hot soapy water to get it thoroughly cleaned.It comes with a book of recipes which include soups/stews, roasts, vegetables, rice, and desserts.
CB: I like this little cooker. It comes with very good detailed instructions for cooking various foods. The instructions addressed questions we had without having to do further research. I would recommend this. Keep in mind that you do not use the entire 6 QT so buy a larger one if you need to make 6 QT of food. The cooker can only be about half full for some items and two thirds full for other times. I will check those line markers and update if I got it wrong. 20130130.
Charles S Sundberg: We have tried Beef, Poultry, and Pork in various different vegatables in the cooker and have not had a failure once. The stainles version is the only way to go.
