5 out of 5 eggsGood basic pressure cooker

Pros: This is a basic pressure cooker without any electronic gadgetry. Very little can go wrong. It's 8 quarts .. so it's fairly big. Probably a bit too big for a family of three. It would be perfect for a family of four to five. We've enjoyed using it.

Cons: The piece that fits pressure release valve would be better if it were made of solid metal instead of plastic lined with metal.

4 out of 5 eggsShorten your cooking time

Pros: Super easy to use once you get the concept of how to cook with it. Makes great mashed potatoes, pork Carnitas, green chili and beef stew. For the mashed potatoes just cover with water and boil, cook under pressure for 10-15 minutes, with skins on, they fall apart when mashed with little effort. Look for Kelly Liken's Pork Carnitas recipe, add fresh vegetables and spices to cook.

Cons: Marks the bottom of the sink. A bit noisy when cooking and I now wish it had a temp gauge.

Other Thoughts: I purchased one of these for the girlfriend after watching a few episodes of Iron Chef and Top Chef with her. Had little knowledge of how to use or exactly how they worked, while the first meal we cooked did not turn out every meal since has been great. Using on gas stove.
