Why not five stars? Well, I'd really give 4 1/2 if possible.
As an engineer, I have some comments on the construction. I haven't been around a pressure cooker for a generation or more, having been exposed to the crude kind where there's a weight dancing around over a vent. This is far better. But, the safety organizations have put in multiple backup systems to prevent an overpressure event. I'm sure they work, but in the implementation there's some flimsiness. I would expect most pressure cookers would have the same construction details.
First, the good: The unit is very solid, with heavy gauge stainless construction. The handles are solid plastic, without play or flex.
The details: To prevent overpressure, there are several safety valves, which look a bit flimsy compared to the rest of the cooker. My biggest complaint is that the main pressure valve, when disassembled, is a light-weight piece of plastic, with a spring actuator, made with a number of intricate grooves and notches to create the 8 lb (low) and 15 lb (high) pressure relief. I wonder how this will hold up and whether or not it will need to be replaced (and be available when that is necessary). Also, the cover locking mechanism is plastic, and I don't know how durable that will be, either.
There is also a silicone ring which needs replacing every year or two. Interestingly, one of the features of this ring, which is rather clever, is that it is v-shaped in cross section, rather than tubular or flat. Along the edge of the cover is a rectangular notch. If all of the other pressure relief valves fail, the ring will be pressed against the opening and blow out, relieving the pressure. I wonder at what over-pressure level this is supposed to occur.
Everything I've cooked in it has been delicious. I'd recommend purchasing it, unless you have experience in these things and can convince yourself that some of the super-premium cookers are worth the difference.
1. largest model. i wanted it for bone broth. This is the largest pressure cooker I could find in my price range. The All-Clad is about 8 qt and the Cuisinart is tiny - only about 6 qt. Too small for me, but might be great for small items.
2. Price. I like the All-Clad, but it was more expensive. The Cuisinart, is super cheap but, again, too small for my needs.
3. Durability. The metal is thick and feels sturdy. I like that it's built in Spain, where they have been using pressure cookers a long time and know what they are doing.
4. Ease of use. This is super simple to use. No plug in or electrics to deal with. No bells, no whistles. Just wait for the pressure gauge to pop up and you are ready to go. The All Clad has pretty bells and whistles, but, again, at a much higher price that I couldn't justify for my needs.
This also comes with a regular glass lid, in case you want to use it as a normal stockpot, and a steamer insert. The bottom is also wide enough - check other manufacturers sizes and see that the cooker you are looking at is wide enough in case you want to use a steamer or insert pan sometimes. My only problem is storing it - i would have liked the All-Clad because I like the small handles. Not a big deal, just needs a few extra inches in the cupboard. I have used this multiple times now (beyond making such delicious broth!) and have been incredibly surprised at how wonderful everything is that comes out of it! I have oxtail stew in right now (which prompted me to write this review..). I have relegated my slow cooker to the garage: I hope I never need it again because the flavor of the food is far superior to slow cooking.
