Excellent service and fast efficient delivery. One reservation being that the cooker is sold as holding three litres, it is, in fact, pushed to hold two litres, otherwise am delighted with the product.

Verified Purchase
We needed a pressure cooker which was suitable for a halogen hob. It was surprising how advice differed on this. However, this one is made from stainless steel, and the Amazon description clearly stated that it is suitable for all cooker types, including induction.
When cooking for two, the size is just right; it is not too big to fit into the pots and pans drawer; it looks good; we have only had it for a couple of weeks but it appears to be well made and robust. The instruction booklet is clear and comprehensive.The best feature is the 'Open and Close Switch' which allows control over the escape of steam without any risk of scorched fingers. The Visual Pressure Indicator does exactly what it says, and it also prevents the lid from being opened before pressure has reduced - a good safety feature.
Overall, we are delighted with this pressure cooker. Time will tell if it stands up to everyday use, but the indications so far are good.

Good size and price cooker. Perfect for 2 people
The only problem I face is plastic ring inside regulator broke after few days
Apart from that good for quick cooking. Small size for storing after use.

Cooker was absolutely fine, but had to return as it was a much smaller capacity than expected.

The quality of this pressure cooker does at all meet my expectations. One pot of stew was all I got before I discovered that the plastic ring mounted under the pressure regulator had broke in two places. This vital part stops the regulator from rotating. If its allowed to rotate freely the risk is that the steam outlet will point towards the handle with bad scalds as a result. In addition to this problem I find it disturbing that as soon as I grip the main handle, or just by touching the upper one, steam is leaking out. This means that its impossible to move the cooker at all without letting out steam. The third problem I see with this cooker is that when closing it, the lid needs to be push downwards in the area close to the safety hole opposite of the main handle. Both hands must be used to close the cooker. Might be OK as long as the pan is cold, but when its hot.....

I purchased this pressure cooker a few days ago and since its arrival it's had quite a lot of use. I also own the prestige 6L stainless steel pressure cooker (which I would recommend) and that one tends to gets all the big jobs. This 3L pressure cooker is an ideal size for one or two people, but the main reason I bought it was for cooking beans, lentils and rice - for which it really is ideal.

It only has the one pressure setting (12psi), but it comes to pressure quickly and does exactly what it says. Unlike other prestige pressure cookers this one doesn't come with a trivet or a recipe book - which isn't the end of the world.

I would definitely recommend this pressure cooker to anyone, I'm really pleased that I bought it!!

I have had many pressure cookers over the last 40 odd years and found this one cooks as well as others but takes a bit of fiddling on the rather flimsy steam release.

The pressure cooker lid was fiddly to unlock and take off but once this was got used to the unit worked well and produced good results. This unit replaced another which was twice its size and three times its weight. We are well pleased with our purchase.
