Um, that price is no fun. And, a few units have had faulty valves that need to be checked as soon as you open your package.


This stovetop Fissler Vitaquick pressure cooker could just be the miracle your kitchen has been waiting for. It’s a professional quality pot made of stainless steel with an aluminum base that allows the entire pot to heat evenly.

Now, it is expensive; we can’t deny that. And it is basic – you don’t get a host of fancy bells and whistles, but it is top-of-the-line quality and the variety of sizes available will drive you to collect the set. Plus, they’re completely silent and steam-free which will make it an absolute pleasure to work with every single time. Just wait until you take a bite of your first meal from this pot.

Capacity? There are three sizes available, 4.5 quart, 6 quart, and 8 quart and you can stack them inside of each other for easy storage.

Easy to clean? Remarkably so. These pressure cookers can go in the dishwasher. Thank goodness!

Safety Features? The lid clicks into place after twisting to snap shut and you’ll hear it click so you know it’s safe to use. The spring-valve pressure regulator makes it easy to monitor the pressure and there is a quick release value.

Extra features? Can change between 10 psi and 15 psi for different levels of pressure; that’s not standard for stovetop pressure cookers, so we do appreciate it. There’s also a perforated insert to allow for cooking separate foods.

Other cooking methods? You could use it for other cooking methods, but if you’re going to spend this much on a stovetop pressure cooker, you probably don’t want to risk damaging it while cooking with it in other ways.

Will it break the bank? The 6-quart pressure cooker sells between $250 and $275. That’s almost ridiculously expensive. But, if you’re serious about cooking, you will splurge on it. We know it. At least it comes with a limited lifetime warranty – though there have been mixed reviews about dealing with the manufacturer.
