Great Cooker BUT ONLY OPERATES AT 12PSI May 13 2012
By hADERA - Published on Amazon.com

This is a nice pressure cooker, but it only reaches 12 PSI. If you are new to pressure cooking, all recipes you will find will follow a default PSI of 15 PSI for High Pressure. So if you use a T-FAL Pressure Cooker you will need to increase the time by 20%. This obviously defeats the purpose of saving time and in turn you run the risk of burning meat on the bottom and loosing flavor and energy because of the extra cooking time. Try and go for a cooker that reaches 15 PSI.

Love my Tfal pressure cooker. Nov. 9 2011
By Donna O Earwood - Published on Amazon.com

I have always used a pressure cooker as did my Mom before me but I had always had an aluminum one. I have decided to upgrade all my cookware to stainless steel to avoid any issue that cooking with aluminum may cause. I was pleased to find a steel pressure cooker made by Tfal since it is a brand that I knew as a quality brand. I have used it several times since I purchased it and have been very pleased with the way it works. I like that it has two settings, basically a high and low that other pressure cookers don't have. It is quieter than other pressure cookers since it does not have a weight that jiggles while it is cooking. I would definitely recommend it as a quality product.

Awesome Jan. 19 2012

This is the first pressure cooker I ever used and I was a bit nervous at first. I read the instructions over and over and when I did the initial water boil, I realized how easy it was going to be and man was it ever. The pot roast and vegetables turned out great too. Great buy and really super easy to use and clean. I will say that it is a bit on the heavy side and I bought the small one. If you are cooking for a family, get a larger size. Perfect for two.

Great Pressure Cooker Nov. 2 2011

I was surprised at how heavy and well built this cooker was. Easy to use and does a great job. Clean-up is a snap too. I would recommend this product. The quality and price makes this mid-size pressure cooker a good buy. I'm sure you will like it.

Confession: Pressure Cooker Junkie July 26 2012

Vine Customer Review of Free Product
I've used pressure cookers about 45 years, progressing from Mom's old Presto (remember food sprayed onto the ceiling?) to the modern, safe timesavers available from many manufacturers today. I own three and have demonstrated several different brands in retail housewares departments. This 7.4 quart cooker is probably the largest most home cooks will ever need. It will hold enough bones and vegetables to make a few quarts of stock, which can then be boiled down and frozen for later use. It fits nicely on the large burner of a home stove and has a helper handle to make carrying easier. The control is a little different from some others: The user can specify a lower (7 lb psi) or higher (12 lb psi) pressure depending upon the food to be cooked. Some brands require raising or lowering the heat so that a visible gauge sits at the appropriate line; the T-fal method is easier and requires less watching. The available pressure is lower than some other cookers, but this is not a flaw; it simply adds a slight bit of cooking time. The cooker has a heavy aluminum bottom encased in stainless steel, like many quality pots. The incuded steamer basket sits on a separate wire trivet. This provides a trivet that could hold a different pan if making, for example, a steamed pudding.

A couple of features are slightly disappointing, but not dealbreakers. This cooker requires a minimum of 8.5 ounces of liquid to bring up proper pressure. This could be more liquid than is desired in some finished recipes and must be boiled down after the food is cooked. My other large pressure cooker requires 1/2 cup. Finally, the included recipes are, except for a few provided by Ingrid Hoffman, very 1950s vintage. There are several recipes for pressure cooking fish and seafood. Forget them. The temperatures inside a pressure cooker are too high, and the times required for bringing the cooker to pressure and releasing the pressure add to the cooking time, guaranteeing an overcooked result. I recommend the cookbooks by Lorna J. Sass.
