The model of IP that's always been the all-time highest selling (unless that got eclipsed yesterday by the 8 qt which I sort of doubt) is the regular DUO60.
It didn't go on sale for Prime Day (surprising many people) but yesterday it went down to $89, though it's back up today at its usual/recent price of $99 (down from about $140 when I bought mine). It did go down to $69 around Black Friday and the Prime Day before that, but IP seems to be pushing the 8 qt this go-round rather than any of their 6 qts.

That $99 regular DUO60 is still one heck of a deal for what you'd be getting (and most of the recipes and references online are still for that model). Mine's about two years old now and still going strong. (I wasn't even tempted to get a different model this sale period.)

Oh, and Kohls has had that model I think also on sale (maybe with a code too?) but not sure about now. And Walmart has had various models (the DUO60 they're allowed to sell is also called an "ENW" or something), but always be aware of which model you're buying.

The LUX model is a bit cheaper though (today at amazon it's $71), but it's not a 7-in-1 so not able to do yogurt (also proof dough, ferment tempeh, etc, on that setting) like the DUO60 and the higher models can do. The LUX also won't have Low pressure (seldom used by most), or be able to be set for as many hours in a row and some other things you might not care about. It's fine though if you really want to save money, and if that money would be worth it over the years you might have the LUX.
(Btw, the LUX also used to be made in a 5 qt size but not sure if there are any new ones of those still around.)

I went through a lot of reviews several months ago, including the America's Test Kitchen picks. Oddly, I've found that review sites like ATK and Consumer Reports tend to recommend products that then get pretty bad public scores when you look them up.

I'm not sure if that is because of unrealistic expectations, the quality on the products drop after getting a good review, or just sheer dumb luck. For me, I trust the masses more than a purportedly expert so ultimately decided on the Kuhn Rikon 7-quart.

I don't know that getting the black plastic value was absolutely necessary given I don't use it too much, but given what you just went through - the peace of mind may be worth. Otherwise, I am loving this cooker, it is almost completely silent and well made.

u/loveshercoffee · 3 pointsr/PressureCooking

I've never seen one like this so I can't comment on the quality or anything.

I have a very inexpensive, no-frills Presto. It's not expensive but it works great. It's got a nice, heavy bottom that makes it great just to use as an extra saucepan as well. You can also buy an alternate weight for it (part number 50332) that will allow you to use varying pressures (5, 10, 15psi) with it.

u/biglebowski55 · 2 pointsr/PressureCooking

Finding myself in the same position, after reading through posts on this thread, and already owning 2 small, old, Indian cookers, I purchased this cooker, nervous about it being well-made, and I LOVE IT. Perfect capacity, sturdily built, easy to clean, just perfect. I will add that I had no interest in an electric cooker.

u/QuestioningGuy · 3 pointsr/PressureCooking

there are a few on amazon but they are much higher than usual pricing.

I recommend the instant-pot.
Instant Pot

It generates 12.8 PSI at high pressure(verify?) but whatever i cook in it comes out great as i use timing from
America's Test Kitchen pressure cooker
Lorna Sass Pressure Perfect
Bob Something From HSN Fast cookbook(built for electric units).

I also use a meat thermometer in case to verify safety in case the meat was somewhat frozen or not.

PM me for any questions?

u/Pecorino · 10 pointsr/PressureCooking

Sorry, I actually meant it's available for pre-order! Anyway, if you use the code "ipot" it's $100 off for a total of $189. Considering their most popular model is $135, I wonder if the Bluetooth functionality is worth the extra $54.

Regarding the sous vide option: on the FAQ page they say with calibration it can be accurate to ±1° Celsius. This isn't quite as accurate as I wish it were... but I wonder if there would be a way to improve it a bit more, maybe by adding some circulator pump. Still, I'm very intrigued.

EDIT: I've emailed them and asked if the sous vide option can be turned on without the lid being fastened (in order to use a circulating pump), and if the firmware for the iPot is able to be updated at all. I'll update the thread when I hear back.

EDIT 2: It WILL work without the lid on, and re firmware:
>"There may very well be some firmware updates in the future".

u/brendaneph · 3 pointsr/PressureCooking

I am not experienced with the Chef line. I own the Duo, and it works well and was a good value seeing as I didn't have any pots to begin with. I would stay away from their Splendid line because of quality issues.

u/nasduia · 3 pointsr/PressureCooking

Just noticed the Amazon link is for a 7 litre model. The 5 litre is £120 which is about what I paid. Great pressure cookers. I would never go back to the old prestige style with weights like my mum used.

This is the model I have: The stubby handles are great for saving space in the cupboard and on the hob.

u/LegalPusher · 9 pointsr/PressureCooking

I have this Instant Pot, and it's amazing. Very easy to use. I also bought a second stainless steel pot, sealing ring, and the glass lid for other types of cooking.

It even has a yogurt function that works well. I like it because, while you can make it in the pot, there's enough room to make the yogurt in four 500mL glass mason jars. (Then I put the white reusable screw off lids on and put them in the fridge.)

u/pooper-dooper · 2 pointsr/PressureCooking

You can usually tell if they're going to be quiet by the absence of a "jiggler" on top - although not a perfect gauge, it works pretty well.

Here's a T-Fal and a Presto that are inexpensive and highly rated.

As always, I have to throw in a recommendation for Hawkins - although their best value is in their hard anodized cookers like this one. The Futura line lets out a fairly constant quiet hiss when the flame is appropriately set. Their more traditional ones (appear like jigglers) don't jiggle, but give a periodic concentrated burst of steam. That's because these are "modified 1st gen" technology. But, I am a fan of the simple lid locking mechanism.

u/deargsi · 1 pointr/PressureCooking

I made Tortellini and Meatball Soup from Great Foods Fast, with spinach in place of kale (I'm not partial to kale). Old hat to most of you on this sub, I'm quite sure. But I am not much of a cook in the normal way of things, and it was absolutely delightful to make something so flavorful and fresh, that came out right on the first try! I'm looking forward to expanding my repertoire.

u/chedda1212 · 1 pointr/PressureCooking

I would say the Fagor Duo, but the price has gone up almost $40 since I bought mine a couple of years ago. I think you can do better for $150. Get at least an 6qt cooker. The 4qt one I have can't fit much of anything, but my 8qt is perfect for almost everything.

u/TheBigMost · 2 pointsr/PressureCooking

Glad you enjoyed it. You might want to look into picking up a copy of the cookbook that it comes from, Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure

u/Mister_Cupcake · 3 pointsr/PressureCooking

The pressure cooker doesn't have any settings. I have a presto and I just put it on my stove burner on the highest setting until the top thing starts rocking, then I turn the heat down to 1/3, which will keep the thing on top rocking for the duration I cook. That's how I cook everything. Most meats ~10 minutes, cool under the sink. Most vegetables ~1 minute, cool under the sink. I cook rice for about ~2mins, then set it aside for ~5mins, then cool under the sink.

> Instant Pot Duo V2 7 - 6 Qt


Peço desculpas por usar o Google para traduzir.

O cartaz aqui oferece bons conselhos. Você pode precisar de um anel de vedação.

Como isso:

Você também pode ter uma tampa superior com defeito. Nesse caso, você precisará de uma nova tampa que inclua isso. A unidade deve descarregar o vapor apenas um pouco antes de selar e continuar a aquecer.

Boa sorte para você.

u/soDakcat · 6 pointsr/PressureCooking

After getting my first Instant Pot, I bought all sorts of inserts and accessories. After seeing people rave about a set they purchased from QVC, I finally broke down and bought the set. It is now my go-to set. If I had bought it first, I would not have purchased some of the other items. QVC 4 pc Silicone Pressure Cooker Insert

Another piece I use frequently is RSVP Stainless Steel Mesh Colander You can remove the handles to make it fit inside the 6 qt IP. I like it enough that I bought a second and left the handles on. With the handles spanning the Instant Pot insert, it is great for straining the last bit of broth from chicken bones

u/grainzzz · 2 pointsr/PressureCooking

Friend of mine made this over the weekend. Fantastic!

Edit: because of this, I ordered America's Test Kitchen's pressure cooker cookbook ( Will post a review once I get it.

u/vapeducator · 2 pointsr/PressureCooking

50% off is no good deal when the "original" price is way too high to start. You can get this 4 qt. Presto Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker for $40 and it will do just as well. For $11 more you can get the 6 qt. model too. They both use the exact same lid, so if you get them both then the lids can serve as backups for each other. Amazon has sold the Instant Pot DUO60 6qt. model for as low as $69.99 during its last prime day sale, so if you wait for another sale you might be able to get all 3 and still pay less than that overpriced 4.5 qt. model.

u/frogspa · 1 pointr/PressureCooking

The best brand I'm aware of is Kuhn Rikon.

Considering they're made in Switzerland, it's bizarre they're cheaper in the US (£178.39 against $159.96, though it is on offer in the US)

However, how will you get it back? Airport security might not like a pressure cooker, plus you might end up paying duty.

u/bigdaddybodiddly · 1 pointr/PressureCooking

Yeah, 9mm is larger than any I've got. That thing looks to be around as big as my 23 quart canner you may have better luck specifying pressure canner parts rather than pressure cooker parts.
Maybe it's related to this thing ?

u/ImpossiblePossom · 2 pointsr/PressureCooking

IDK about the elctric models, but Presto makes an very good cooker (nonelectric) for the money. I own both a fagor and a presto and probaly use my presto more, it may not be as "nice" but for almost half the price I dont mind if it gets a scratch or burn...

u/mikew0w · 3 pointsr/PressureCooking

Hey, want to get on a list together? I'm a middle eastern male and I own this pressure cooker and I love it.

u/StinkinLizaveta · 1 pointr/PressureCooking

I've done this with brisket in my pressure canner,this one.
Though I cut the brisket into two pieces so it would fit in the bottom with a braising liquid. It absolutely works. Turns out great. I can't remember exactly how long I put it in for though, I've cooked too many other things since then, sorry.

u/NorthOfUptownChi · 1 pointr/PressureCooking

Might be. Eventually I'm going to do a true test of this, I just haven't had time yet because we're in the middle of moving.

Here's the bowl I got, if you want to try it, too:

u/entrelac · 3 pointsr/PressureCooking

The Weeknight Chili from this book is great and it only takes 10 minutes under pressure, plus a little prep time.

u/scayne · 3 pointsr/PressureCooking

Broccoli should be fine. I soft boiled eggs right on it.

I purchased this basket after being recommended here. I use it for my veggies . . .

u/BriMarsh · 3 pointsr/PressureCooking

Pressure cooker are usually sold by volume capacity (quarts) with the largest commercially available cookers being 8qts.

Instant Pot is usually the first to be recommended. I have used a Power Cooker from Walmart just as successfully. Both should have a pot height that meets your needs.

I've seen 10qt options on Amazon but am not familiar with the brands.

u/quillquip · 1 pointr/PressureCooking

Amazon is currently listing the 8-quart Instant Pot as in stock.

u/pl213 · 1 pointr/PressureCooking

If you're going to spend that kind of money, there's also the All American 921. Greater capacity and it can also be used to pressure can.

u/TabascoStone · 1 pointr/PressureCooking

Today (2/23/17) The ceramic inner pot is at the lowest price it's ever been.
Treat yo Self.

u/nexuschild · 11 pointsr/PressureCooking

They set up a European distribution out of UK for 220v versions. For the Netherlands you can get it from Amazon Germany for the correct plug.

u/itsmebrian · 2 pointsr/PressureCooking

Don't know if you've already bought one, but Instant Pot does have one for Germany and it's on sale for Black Friday.

u/blueeyetea · 2 pointsr/PressureCooking

Yes, it's my favourite. I use the casserole method of cooking brown rice from this book.

Essentially, put two cups of water in the bottom of the pressure cooker. In a pyrex bowl (or other bowl that can withstand the pressure) mix the rice and water as recommended in the recipe, place on a trivet in the PC. Cook at high pressure for 25 minutes. Turn off the heat, and let the pressure come down naturally.

u/ahecht · 2 pointsr/PressureCooking

> $40, Presto - Stellar reviews, however, the product is aluminum and not stainless steel as advertised. Reviews warn about rusting and overall poorer quality in models purchased after 2012.

Presto makes both aluminum and stainless models:

u/paisleyterror · 2 pointsr/PressureCooking

I bought a strainer for my presto electric kettle. I noticed on the reviews that users take the handles off to use it in a pressure cooker.

u/mcysr · 1 pointr/PressureCooking

You're getting it! Your physics is looking good,Good work!

Now look at this:

That little device at the top is a weight. It sits over an opening, keeping the steam in the pot, thus raising pressure inside of the confined space!

This is a conventional pressure cooker and if you take the weight off you loose pressure, as there is only an open tube leading down into the cooker.

OK, now, this weight is totally dependent on gravity, and the weight is not held on by anything else, there is no spring. I think this may have been a source of confusion.

So you can simplify your equation, as the Fatm is the same on both sides, before heat, the weight sits on a tiny tube, holding in steam as heat is applied, until the pressure overcomes the weight, regulating the pressure to your design parameters.

Did your mom let you try our little experiment? You turn that pot upside down and the weight falls off! Give it a try! But be careful!

Now this is fun:

See all those colors? Those are changes in gravity on Earth! Engineers at the GOCE did that. Now it may not be much, but it is effecting the weight. Do you see that the cooker may not work well in free fall?

u/[deleted] · 2 pointsr/PressureCooking

One of the main points of using a pressure cooker is that it makes the food tastier and infuses the food with the spices that were added. It locks in the flavor. Try the following:

  1. use chicken stock, beef stock, or vegetable stock instead of plain water.
  2. The meat is usually not submerged. The liquid never really evaporates out of the pot so there is no need to do so.
  3. saute the meat in the spices before cooking. This will add flavor.
  4. Try the following recipe books and resources. They will give you good techniques for cooking different types of meat. This or that or this site. None of them have failed me.
u/tb21666 · -4 pointsr/PressureCooking

Because the Instant Pot is basically a glorified rice cooker with sidewall reinforcement at its design core, if you bother to compare/examine them both in-person, side-by-side, as I have.

The NuWave Induction Pressure Cooker is my personal preference for use with my Ti.

EDIT: Wasn't intended to be a dig or an insult. Simply a firsthand observation.

Maybe instead of down-voting because you're butt hurt someone told you something you didn't know/never noticed before, go look & see for yourselves..?

Doesn't effect the Instant Pot's performance pressure cooking overall, but it doesn't change the facts of its design, either.

u/luciferprinciple · 5 pointsr/PressureCooking

Dont listen to these guys. You have an absolutely sick pressure cooker. These are highly sought after, specifically because they are so well manufactured and will last many lifetimes. You'll need to replace the gauge though. Get a nice geared pressure gauge, shouldn't run more than $20.

Amazon still sells this exact product. Seriously, please dont throw it away. Use it. Its an absolutely beautiful tool.

Here is the gauge:

Here is the slightly bigger version of the PC you have:

I monitor this subreddit, every time someone posts a picture of an all american people discourage them from using it. Such a shame. Sell it to me, ill use it.
