This Kuhn Rikon stovetop pressure cooker in my kitchen is one of my favorite cooking tools because it’s so useful. I could write a very long article about why I prefer manual pressure cookers over electric ones, but I will simply say that the results are far better and the pot itself is very versatile. It comes in multiple sizes ranging from 3.7 to 8.4 quarts, so you can choose the right one for your family needs. Even though I don’t often cook for more than four people, I use the biggest size so that I can also make large batch stews. Besides the the ability to reduce cooking time by 70% which makes cooking a pot of pheasant thighs feasible on a weeknight, I love that you don’t have to lock the lid in place, meaning it doubles as a great stock pot – $198 and up.
