Whether you are cooking soups, meat, vegetables or potatoes, or even sterilising babies bottles, everything is more relaxed with the Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cooker and it is up to 3 times faster than conventional cooking methods too. Risotto in 7 minutes? Creme Caramel in 10 minutes? No problem with the Duromatic.
This 5 litre Kuhn Rikon Inox Pressure Cooker with long handle has a timeless design, is easy to use and is a practical classic.
The aluminium heat-conducting base is especially thick and ensures rapid and even heat absorption on all heat sources, including induction. Three safety release systems and stay cool plastic fittings are all included in the design for your safety in the modern busy kitchen.
The interior of the pan features 1/2 and 2/3 fill level indicators. You can brown meats in the pan before the lid is locked on, or use the pan without the lid. Easy positioning triangles allow you to close the lid with the minimum of fuss, whilst all models in the Duromatic range feature the fully-automatic locking system which prevents opening while there is still pressure in the cooker. As the food begins to boil, any air present in the pressure cooker will firstly escape through the spring-loaded pressure valve and then the valve cap will move up. The pressure indication lines become visible and you are able to cook effortlessly at low (0.4 bar) or high (0.8 bar) pressure by adjusting the heat. You can then just enjoy the peace and quiet and once your food inside is ready, the pressure can be released in three safe and easy ways.
Cooking with the Duromatic takes about 1/3 of the usual cooking time, with an energy saving of up to 70%. This saves you money and is also good for the environment. Vitamins are sealed in, instead of boiled away, vegetables keep their bright colours and flavours are so intense less seasoning is needed.
Pressure cooking can be daunting, but the Instruction Manual included with your new purchase includes an extensive table of cooking times as well as cleaning and care recommendations to get you started and enjoying the benefits of this heavyweight, stainless-steel beauty. And if you needed any more encouragement to get cooking, you can also download a Fresh Food Fast recipe booklet from www.kuhnrikon.co.uk which includes at least 20 delicious ideas, including tips on how to use your new pressure cooker to produce jams and chutneys, Christmas pudding and Curried Chicken Casserole in a fraction of the normal time.
The cookware is guaranteed for 10 years against faults, but excludes normal wear and tear. Replacement parts are available separately.See all Product Description

It isn't none stick which I felt might be a bit of a problem, but it is so easy to clean anyway, that it really hasn't mattered.
The instructions are clear and concise, the after sales team are on the ball (mine arrived without the complimentary cook book, one phone call and it was delivered 2 days later.
I have not had it for very long so in honesty can't testify to its longevity, but it is a joy to use and I wouldnt hesitate to recommend it to even the most nervous novice.
The removeable gasket fits easily into the inside of the lid, then simply align using the etched arrows, turn and ... done.
It takes a little while to get up to pressure and there's an indicator bar showing when low and high pressure is reached.
It's very energy efficient - once it's up to high pressure I can keep it there on my smallest gas ring, set to its lowest flame. Indeed if I want low pressure I have to keep turning off the gas. These days I do everything on high pressure.
This is one of those gadgets that I don't use often but is absolutely invaluable when I do use it - for making stock. A chicken carcass, plus all the usual stock vegetables. Cover with water, cook for 1 hour. The pressure stops the liquid boiling and so the stock is beautifully clear. Cool, strain, take off any fat, reduce and pour into ice-cube bags. Instant home-made stock. As there's no added salt you can use this stock in any concentration you like - simply season at the end.
Pressure cooker beef stew is also a revelation - braising steak, swede, carrots, onions and potatoes in large chunks. A little salt & pepper, perhaps a little Bisto to thicken. 30 mins and you have the most fabulous winter one pot dinner.
I particuarly like this pressure cooker as it has the long handle - easy to move and easy to close.
I'd make a note about size. This 5L is the smallest I would consider. It will, just, take a small chicken carcass and the stock veg.
If you are cooking anything that expands - purees, pulses, porridge, etc, then the recommendation is not to fill over 1/3 full. 1/3 of a 5L pot is not a huge amount.Read more ›
The only downside is the poor cooking instructions for different types of food in the handbook plus there are no recipes. This could prove difficult for a novice pressure cooker user, which is a shame as it is such an excellent product.
I wish I had bought the Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker years ago. I love it - it is so easy to use and not at all scary. It looks really sleek and clean in design, and when under pressure there is hardly any steam loss, so no worries about windows steaming up! It is also really easy to clean.
So far I've cooked potatoes and veggies, which only take about 8 mins, I've cooked a wonderful beef and onion pie filling and instead of about 2.5 hours it took about 20 mins once under pressure, and a couple of boiled gammon joints which again take about 20 mins. All have been so tasty!!
I was surprised how quickly when taken off the heat it naturally reduces pressure - you only need a couple of minutes before you can open the lid.
I just need to experiment a bit more with what I cook in it. A while after I had it, I also bought the 3 section basket for it too, which is fab also.
If you've been umming and aarghing - go for it - I haven't regretted it at all - and I don't think you will either!
