5.0 out of 5 stars light and easy to use 5 Mar 2012
By griddle
I haven't had a pressure cooker since the days of the super-heavy long handled ones with gaskets that quickly didn't fit and lots of scary hissing. But watching Heston got me interested in having one again. This pressure cooker is great!!! It's light and astonishingly easy to use. At first I was worried that the instructions were too brief (they are, scarily so, and no recipes) but in fact that's because it really is very simple to use with a very effective valve which registers pressure clearly and responds quickly when you lower the heat.

Whilst it is a big investment I am really pleased with the quality of the materials and with the design - from small things like sensible handle design which means a large capacity pan still fits in your pan drawer to absolute confidence in the valve and the strength of the pan which is light but high quality precision cast stainless steel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Delighted! 14 Dec 2011
Verified Purchase
The pressure cooker arrived exactly when expected and I am absolutely delighted with it. The quality is definitely as described and it works a dream. It has been in use every day since it arrived. The only thing that confuses me a little with regard to the cookbook I bought at the same time "Pressure Perfect is that Lorna Sass doesn't mention two levels of pressure, which this cooker has. But the instruction booklet is very good and so is the booklet with recipes.

I highly recommend this pressure cooker and am really glad I decided on a good quality PC.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely piece of kit 7 Jun 2012
By millie
I decided to buy this because I cook a lot of stews with cheaper cuts of meat (beef feet, oxtail, goat etc). The cooking time is greatly reduced. What used to take 3 hours can now be ready in 20-40 minutes. Incredible. As other reviewers have mentioned there is no scary hissing noise. The handles are ideal because you don't need to worry about long handles taking up room. The design is sleek with no extra grooves and fiddly bits to clean. I find it a good weight. It would be described as a heavy bottomed pan. With a slick of oil it is almost non-stick. My only quibble is the aluminium base doesn't extend to the edge of the pan. This means you do have to be careful that your flame isn't licking beyond it otherwise the stainless steel will discolour. And for heaven's sake don't follow Heston's suggestion to heat the pan up until its smoking. What was once stainless steel in colour is now copper on my pan :( I would also say to be careful when you're using the touch release method to reduce pressure. Steam escapes in all directions.

This is a lovely site on pressure cooking and reviews of Kuhn Rikon and other very good PC's: [...]

And a nice post about a visit to the factory in Switzerland: [...]

Btw it comes with good instructions and a few recipes. Between this and my Lodge cast iron skillet (love that word) I appear to have no need for my other pans. Wish I had these many years ago. Hopefully when I'm long gone someone will continue to make good use of them.

5.0 out of 5 stars Get a bigger one 31 Mar 2013
This is an excellent product. Like many others I was initially scared; my mother covered the ceiling with boiling rice in my early youth. But this is easy to use and safe to operate.
Be careful about the capacity you need. I have a 6 litre one. But you can only use these things 2/3 full so that's 4 litres. I use it almost exclusively for making stock so that 4 litres yields about 2 litres; less if you're going to use ice filtration (thanks Heston). So making 4 litres of stock takes two batches which overall, seems to go on forever. Maybe I'll get another.

Great product, but I bought this for pearl barley, beans and pulses, and for those who may wish to know, there are some things that actually cannot be cooked in the duromatic - barley included :-(

the manual (2012) p56, states that you cannot cook:-
'apple compote, cranberries, porridge (oat flakes), barley or other cereals (other than those listed on p73), peas, pasta, macaroni or rhubarb' as they all foam too much and could block the valve.

the cereals that you can cook in this are:- (p73 of manual 2012)
rice (parboiled), rice (risotto), rice pudding, brown rice soaked, brown rice unsoaked,brown rice (parboiled), wild rice (soaked), wild rice (unsoaked), semolina, corn meal fine (polenta), corn meal coarse

On the total plus side, this is a really nicely made unit, which I use for brown rice, pulses and beans. I loath tinned butter beans in that slimy salty water (usa readers- large lima beans), but I have found pressure cooked butter beans to be sublime, fresh, creamy and far superior to their tinned counterparts. I cook large batches of Biona wild rice mix in this cooker (amazing creamy tasting rice mix that seems to taste unlike any other), freezing 3oz portions ready for when I have to make a super fast meal, and this comes out a treat in here. There is a great web site - fastcooking.ca which is a great resource and really accurate on timings and amounts.

Cooking for 2 non meat eaters, the 6.0 litre is a great size for us, and am pleased I chose this size of unit. The unit is easy to clean, and following the cooking guidelines on the fastcooking.ca site (I am not affiliated to it) I've had no burnt bottoms or dried on food to tackle.
