The Story

Forget yesterday's pressure cooker and embrace the future of quick, easy cooking that retains valuable nutrients. Pressure cooking can reduce cooking times up to 50%, even for slow-cooked dishes such as pot roast, chili, short ribs and stews. One-button locking system, a specially designed lid and intuitive pressure-regulating controls make this an exceptionally easy, efficient solution for home cooks. The unique locking rim secures lid to base in any position, eliminating the need for aligning the cover. Lid locks down with the touch of a button; spring-loaded pressure indicator pin pops up at full pressure for precise monitoring of cook times. Adjustable dial allows you to choose low or high pressure and to safely release steam when cooking is done. Stay-cool handles are wrapped in silicone for comfort. Suitable for all cooktops including induction.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Best Cookware I've always been afraid of pressure cookers, this one with two buttons: open and close, solves my problem. I love how the pot is self is made out of stainless steel. With our family busy work schedule, we can make flavorful meals in less than 30 minutes! Love it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from No insert basket I have been using pressure cookers since the 1950s and this is the first one that comes without an insert basket. The result is that one cannot steam-cook the food, it has to be boiled, a despicable way to cook. If there was an insert to keep the food away from the bottom and the sides, I might reconsider, as the product is beautiful and well-built.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Absolutely the BEST!!! I bought this pressure cooker a year ago in June. I have owned several pressure cookers, including some electric models. This one is by FAR the best! Since it is stainless steel, I can brown my meat in the cooker instead of having to brown in another pan before putting it in the pressure cooker. Also, since it is manual/on the stove, the pressure comes up so quickly that I doubted the light the first two times I used it. This one takes about 5 minutes to come to pressure, as compared to about 20 minutes for the electric models. This makes the best pork ribs (fall off the bone!), stew, chicken broth, roasts, macaroni and cheese, etc., etc. Absolutely the BEST!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful pressure cooker - needs accessories I bought this a couple months ago and am very happy with it. However, in reading some of my old pressure cooker recipes, many of them require an insert. For instance an insert would be used over your meat with say, vegetables in it. Something that takes less time to cook than your main meat. I think that would be a good item to sell. Thank you for a beautiful pot! Oh, and maybe since it is such a wonderful pot, a clear lid as an extra option so it could be used for regular stock pot. Thank you!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I had never used a pressure cooker before but I bought this after reading reviews of comparable models.  It certainly saves a lot of time and I have been thrilled with how everything comes out.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great little pressure cooker, but no basket Just purchased this cooker.  The design is very elegant with a heavy bottom to the pan, simple to open and close, overall very easy to use and clean. Made delicious shortribs in  just 1/2 hour--simply amazing!  Whole potatoes, superb chicken stock--all great.  However, I want to render fat in it (in jars), and there's no steamer basket to keep the glass off the bottom.  I supposed I'll find something that will work eventually, but it would have been really nice to have it included.  Would have been 5 stars with the basket.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Not made in USA I am not happy to find out after the fact this pressure cooker is made in China. I thought all Calphalon was made in the USA. Aside from that, I have used my pressure cooker 4 days out of the 6 days I have owned it. Fantastic dinners from the first use, so easy, fast, and improved flavor. Norm
