About Pressure Cookers
This is the pressure cooker set that I own, and I love it!
This Fagor set comes with two pot sizes (4 quart and 8 quarter), a pressure cooker lid and a glass lid that fits both pots, and a pasta/steamer insert.
Because I do not do a lot of pressure cooking, I appreciate the fact that the pots do double duty. I keep the smaller pot on the stove and use it almost daily for regular cooking. It heats up water quickly, and it's large enough that I can cook spaghetti in it. I typically use the larger pot if I'm making a large batch of tomato sauce.
Initially, I was going to purchase the set manufactured by Kuhn Rikon. Ultimately, price dictated my decision to go with Fagor.
