Good Quality Steel - But Low Quality Screws , Be carefulMost of the 5 star review you will see in Amazon are from 2006 - 6 year back.I purchased this item on May 3rd 2012 and it is delivered to us by May 4th 2012. This is our first presto cooker / stainless steel cooker. There is rust all over the lid. in the edges ( see pictures in amazon) , near the steam vent . the screws at handle. all this in just 2 and half months (75 days). I called up Amazon - their warranty expired on 30 days. now i have to deal with presto...i will update more about my experience.I am pretty much sure that quality has deteriorated over period of time. Very Poor......Update : After trying cleaning and other tricks. finally Called Up presto . They won't take the item back or give a replacement . instead - they send me screws , stating that the body will never get rust because it is pure stainless steel. I tried to open the screws but it did not work , because screws were badly rusted and slipped on philips screw driver.I called up again and this time they are ready to give me a Prepaid UPS Label. I have send the item to them , yet to hear from them.Update (02/20/2013) : Ok , i got the pressure cooker back from Presto couple days back , they changed the handle and screws. I could not find any rust or stain anywhere ( so i will give 3 stars , increase in 2) . I guess the problem was the LOW QUALITY screws. The screws were so bad that the rust stained over the body and edges .It was difficult to figure out whether the body got rust or not. Whatever Poor Quality of Screws created all this mess. I will post new picture soon , i think the OVERALL QUALITY OF STAINLESS STEEL IS GOOD. If you complain to presto they will send you better quality of screws . If you delay on those screws then the threads will wear off and then it will be impossible to change them. Just want to add one more point . I use this cooker everyday , so i will wait and see how these screws performs.Update (02/01/2014) : Here is the update - i think i was too late on the first screws and what happened is even after replacing with stainless steel screws the lid will keep getting rust and i ran out of patience and finally i gave up. Just want to add - it's the lid which keep getting the rust ( near the pressure valve and handle screws) . The body is still intact and has no rust. I no longer use this to pressure cook.I am considering 2 options1) to buy presto from store like KOHLS ( just because they have awesome return policy - [Return any item, anytime, for any reason.]2) to buy Hawkins Pressure cooker - [...]Update 11/2017 ( sorry for late update ) I do use Instapot and Fagor pressure cooker pretty much everyday. I uses presto occasionally just to boil or steam . I do not use it's lid anymore. 3Reliable cooker design - gasket quality concernsI really like the traditional pressure cooker design of this Presto model. A rocker arm (weight on top of the vent hole - pure physics per weight, and cross sectional area of the rocker vent hole) lets you know that the pressure cooker is operating at design pressure and corresponding steam temperature. Per even potentially foaming ingredients (beans, rice, pasta) it would still give you warning that there was a potential plugging issue (since its regular steam vent rattle would be interrupted and liquid would spew on the top of pressure cooker ) thus preventing a dangerous over pressure vs some of the newer pressure relief control valve designs.My concerns include anyone purchasing a consumer product manufactured in China, especially those that you cook with should be aware of their questionable quality control. Three areas:1. The simple (rocker weight) pressure design should ensure that it is highly unlikely that that this pressure would ever be overpressured, and it would give you good warning beforehand. Cook times are quick and you should never leave an unattended pressure cooker.2. The Chinese stainless steel manufacture may have allowed heavy metals into their manufacture and casting, particularly cadmium, which over the long term may slowly poison your family. Per my own investigation, I am less concerned about it now.3. Most all pressure cookers have some type of flexible gasket, that allows a tight seal for the boiling water (producing higher temperature/pressure steam) to cook quicker. A faulty pressure seal in your cooker will never reach the pressures/temperatures needed to cook quicker, thus failing the design intent. I would have preferred a silicone gasket on this model (more expensive, longer lasting, and inherently less gasket chemical emissions). "Rubber gaskets" can contain all kinds of organic chemicals and plasticizers that expose your food to these chemicals. In an attempt to remove chemical exposure, I have pre-tested it with water at operating temperature/pressure several times, until the obvious chemical smell of the remaining water was eliminated.Make sure you prep this pressure cooker gasket, before cooking any meal.BTW, I have worked in the chemical and engineering fields and have some knowledge of the subjects where commented. 4Cheap steel, useless after two monthsWorked great for two months but the steel is thin. The lid now gets stuck because I think the locking tabs got bent. It's now useless, can't close the lid. 1Sometimes it's best to go back to basicsIn the past 18 mo I've had two electric digital pressure cookers. Each were different brands. I loved using them for the ease of not having to stand at the stove to watch them, but BOTH of them burned out the electronics in the same time frame. Only one was from Amazon, the other from another place. I purchased this old fashioned do it yourself pressure cooker like my mother had for 40 yrs, and used regularly.For those who are concerned about screws loosening, remember this: The change in temp will cause the screws to loosen a bit. Metal expands and contracts, all metals. Check them before each use. Stainless steel will indeed stain inside the pot, but it in no way alters the function of the pan. I have a couple of old aluminum pots that are 50+ yrs old. They've been dropped, battered and used for everything and are still being used multiple times a week. I love this 'do it the old fashioned way' pressure cooker. And for those who are concerned about the availability of gaskets, they are sold everywhere, and any six qt pot will accept any brand of gasket. I removed the gasket from my high tech pressure cooker that didn't last, and the gasket fits this manual pot. I am a serious cook, I make almost everything from scratch and I give my tools a workout. But I will NOT be tempted again to buy a digital electric cooker. 5Do Not Purchase The Pressure Cooker!!!! ...Do Not Purchase The Pressure Cooker!!!!.....I have used a pressure cooker for decades. I purchased this smaller size to compliment my larger Presto pressure cooker. I used this pressure cooker a few times and the handle cracked and pieces of the handle came flying off. I called Presto and they replaced the handle....and dang the same thing happened tonight. My husband is an engineer and said that there is a design flaw with the handle. It does not hold up against the heat of the metal. We both feel that this pressure is unsafe and can cause serious injuries. Buyer Beware! 1Love this! Reheats faster than a microwave!Where have I been? This is great! Super fast meals. Quick, and easy enough to make myself sweet potatoes even though I'll be the only one eating it. Also great for, dinner's ready and I forgot the side. Makes soups super quick and chicken stock is really simple. I don't have to babysit it for hours to get great flavor. Love using this for quick mashed potatoes. The recipe book is pretty good and covers most of what I can think of, Google gives me cooking time for anything else (whole chicken in 25 minutes). Reheats a rotisserie chicken or roast in about a min without drying it out! Disappointed that split pea soup is a no-no, but I'll survive. I am 35 years old with 5 kids. I use this 3+ times per week. Don't know how I've never heard how great these are. I did a pork loin in the crockpot and one in here just to compare. In a blind taste test the pressure cooker won unanimously!Instant pot cooks at about 12lbs pressure. This comes with a 15 lb weight.My only complaint is, there is only one screw holding one of the handles on. You need to press against the handle to open and close the cooker. Eventually it will loosen. Not hard to figure out, put two screws in the handle! It doesn't affect the functionality of the pot, but a little common sense on the part of presto would prevent me from retightening a screw every once in a while.I know the chicken in the picture isn't super pretty, but it is falls right off the bone and is delicious! 5WARPEDUsed 6 times, warped on bottom. The reason I purchased Stainless Steel is so it would not warp like aluminum. I have an electric glass cooktop, so pots must be flat to heat evenly. Was to start with, not now. Bought in 2006, it has a 12 year warranty, we'll see how that goes.UPDATE: Presto has decided to give me a "one time courtesy replacement" . They have no reason why this is not a straight Warranty replacement. However, they want me to sped another 1/3rd of the cost of a new one to ship the lid back. Apparently this is to ensure I cannot use the old one again. So they are more worried about their possible loss than my having a product that is not defective. They don't want the actual pot that warped back, so they could examine it themselves. If they did, they could pay the return freight. The customer should not have to be punished because their product is defective, which is what return freight charges are. It is good money after bad, like an internet scam of some obscure lottery win, where you send a fee for "processing". Not buying it. 1User-friendly and safeThis is my third Presto stainless steel six quart pressure cooker in 20 years. I mysteriously "lost" two in moving. I use this several times a week. It's user-friendly and cooks most foods in half the the time or less. When I want quick "barbequed" St. Louis-style ribs, onion, garlic, liquid smoke, barbeque sauce, seasonings and water to cover, and I have delicious ribs in 45 minutes. Same for pot roast with carrots and potatoes. Chicken's a breeze. Beef or pork roast, country-style pork ribs, beef bones, short ribs, tongue, lamb shanks or small leg of lamb, brisket with cabbage, carrots, and potatoes done to a turn in minutes rather than hours. (I prefer regular brisket to corned beef.) Follow safety instructions, easy to clean. A real workhorse in my kitchen. I've tried other pressure cookers. This one is simple, straight forward, and reliable. When it's necessary to add foods (usually veggies) at a certain time, this cooker is easy to "quick cool," add whatever, and restart the pressure cooking. Prefer the stainless steel to aluminum as stainless steel doesn't react with foods. 5WORST PRESSURE COOKER, Went bad within 2 months WORST Designworst pressure cooker ever. the small rubber nipple melted in the food within 2 months of use. don't buy, poor quality and health risk. Destroyed food as the rubber safety nipple melted in the food. See hole in the picture below in the lid. the hole suppose to have rubber nipple that got loose and fell into the food. Not sure why such a POOR design was chosen. I cant return it as it past the Amazon 30 day mark. 1Molten Aluminum Leaking from BaseAfter about 2 years of reliable use, the bottom melted.Potential observations to prevent this from happening to anyone:* The temperature required to sustain steam was higher than usual. Normally on this burner I reduce the setting down to 5 once steam is escaping from the main vent. Today I needed to use a burner setting of 7 to maintain a gentle rattle of the weight. (For comparison, 6 is the setting I usually use cook scrambled eggs when I'm not in a hurry, 7 is the setting I use to cook bacon & 8.5 is what I use to stir fry.)* Molten metal began to leak about minute 18 according to my kitchen timer.* Steam was still escaping from the top throughout and there was water left over at the end. The food within wasn't burned, either. 1
