This is the perfect pressure cooker. It comes with a User Manual in five languages which fully explains everything and especially operation and recipes.
It's beautifully neat and tidy in gleaming stainless steel with a very slick pressure indicator and release mechanism which works exactly as described.
It is by far the best cooker for an electric hob and fits on the ceramic surface like a glove, unlike others and especially aluminium ones which distort with the heat, I've sadly discovered.
You might want to order the accessory basket, available on Ebay, if, like me, you're cooking veg for one, but I already had three, from previous, much less slick and satisfactory, cookers.
It hisses loudly when it gets up to Pressure 2, after five minutes from cold, to let you know it's time to turn the heat down from maximum 5 to medium 3 or lower 2 to maintain Pressure 2, which is then strangely soundless, unlike other hissing, spluttering devils, or down to minimum 1 to facilitate Pressure 1, which is similarly soundless.
I don't know why but the veg tastes better from this cooker than it did from the others and has a better consistency.
