Presto 8-Qt. Aluminum Pressure Cooker

We bought this preassure cooker as a means to cook six lbs of chicken breasts on the weekend that we eat in lunches during the week at work and evenings.
We found it cooks four defrosted chicken breasts in about fifteen minutes. Six lbs total in about 1.25 hours and it taste a lot better than roasting them in the oven! It will cook a whole five pound chicken in 35 minutes and a pot roast in 30 minutes with all the vegetables, potatoes etc. It is very easy to clean also!
My recommendation is buy it! We bought two more for Christmas gifts for our grown chidren and their families!

This product was baught as a replacement and christmass gift for my mother-inlaw.
The handle got broken on her old one baught in 1972. She loves to use her pressure cooker (she is 75y/o) she really loves the new construction the safty lock, the way you can see when it is depressurized,and the shiney finish,and the ease in removing cleaning and replacing the seals. I love the value I did a lot of resarch on price and found walwart was the lowest price.

I love getting compliments for serving delicious meals. Cooking even inexpensive cuts of meat in the Presto 8qt pressure cooker assures me of many such happy experiences. The shorter cooking time and ease of use are bonus for this cook. As always...no other store offers the same or similar product at a better price.

I ordered the 8 qt this time because the 6 qt is a little small for some cuts of meat. also it is great to cook greens. We love collards and they cook so tender in this cooker.

We live in Park City, UT at 7,200 feet above sea level. It takes forever to cook stews and simmer other foods. This pressure cooker cooks foods fast. And veggies seem to taste better. Warning: don't overcook. It is easy to leave things in too long.

Since this is my first Presure Cooker I've ever used my view may be a bit short sighted. But, this PC worked just fine for a mess of pinto beans. Was simple to put together and instructions for use were true enough that I did not over cook. Seems durable enough to me.

This Presto 8 qt cooker does exactly what you want it do, cooks fast and evenly. Well made with a good finish. You need to install the handles, but all you need is a Phillips screwdriver and its very easy. The aluminum makes it light weight and makes it cook evenly. Don't skimp on the size, you will do well with this 8 qt.

My first pressure cooker... it cooked the roast in about 25 minutes and it was delish! Juicy and tender. That alone made it worth its weight in gold. I am a full time student with three children so fast meals are a must. I love it so far.

This is a great kitchen device. Everything from lentils to meat cooks well, tender and full of flavor. I have long been a lover of cooking with pressure cooker and this latest addition doesn't disappoint. Easy and safe to use; solid construction; inspires confidence; easy to clean and put away; great time saver. Manual comes with cooking times and methods to cook most food items. Recommended for serious and weekend chefs alike!

Review 17 for Presto 8-Quart Aluminum Pressure Cooker

Quick, safe, healthy--an indispensable must-have!

10/04/2012

Have owned and used this PC at least 2-3x weekly for years and it's virtually an indestructible workhorse that's an indispensable tool for any cook...whether beginner or expert.
Clear, perfect broths and stock, stews, soups, and pasta sauces in just minutes instead of hours
Perfect easy rice every time in 6 minutes
Dried beans in 5-10 minutes (needing NO presoak for a day)
Whole chickens in 20 minutes
Fall apart tender roasts (3 pounds, from frozen) in 45 minutes
Whole vegetables (whole potatoes, artichokes, onions, beets, etc.) in 8-10 minutes
Pumpkin, green beans, eggplant, cabbage, greens, tomatoes, turnips, brussels in 1-3 minutes
Meatloaf and meatballs in 10 minutes
Ribs in 15 minutes
Frozen chicken pieces in 5-10 minutes
Plus, several different foods can be cooked at the same time while maintaining their individual flavors, or, they can be cooked to infuse flavors, all without ever boiling the food or cooking away flavor, colors, or nutrients.
When desired you can brown the items in this pot before cooking them under pressure, usually using only 1/2-1 cup liquid, unless more is desired as when making broth and such. The 8 qt pot is big enough for family meals such whole roasts, chickens, and ribs, and also big enough to stack different foods so as to cook a whole meal together in one pot to be done at the same time. It's big enough to use insert bowls when desired.
It comes up to pressure fast and is simple to use and easy to clean...no need for the bells and whistles of other much more expensive brands since this one gives the same exact results at a fraction of the cost. Just place the rubber ring inside the lid, close the lid on the pot, set the rocker on it, and cook. It comes complete, with a trivet insert for the bottom, easy instructions, and a recipe booklet. It can be used on a glass top stove.

I spent quite a long time looking for this product with no success, but finally I found it good price, the brand is excellent. If you are a person who loves cook but not like spend hours while the beans are ready, this product is for you, very simple, and You can prepare from beef, beans, stews, pasta, veggies, custards, pineapple turn over cakes,etc. in a few minutes.

very good product if you have no patience waiting for food to cook,getting the timing down is very crucial,if you use the insert on the bottom of the cooker the meat can dry out.
