Hottest Pressure Cooker for Christmas 2012



Presto 01370 8-Quart Pressure Cooker is one of the hottest pressure cookers for Christmas 2012 due to its functionality, great size and the exceptional value.

As the newest addition to Presto pressure cooker collections, it features the improved design elements.

The two short handles make it practical to have balanced weight for each hand when carrying it. They are also more compact for storage as there is no long handle sticking out from one side in the kitchen cupboard. More important than all the external and cosmetic reasons are the built-in pressure release features in both handles.

The pressure regulator is housed in the primary handle with a dial for pressure when you are ready to cook and for pressure release after you are done with cooking. In the other handle are an air vent/lock cover and overpressure plug. The lock cover makes sure the cover is locked and remains to be so while cooking. This prevents potential explosions. The overpressure plug is a safety redundancy measure if the primary pressure release valve is blocked and malfunctional. If you are interested in reading the full review, click here.

8-Quart in liquid capacity is a generous size for most household use in pressure cooking. Made of stainless steel with a tri-clad base in the cooking pot, this cooker combines the best of both stainless steel and aluminum, i.e. durability and non-reactive to acid, rust or corrosion and the excellent heat conductive nature of aluminum.

The best allure is the incredible price. This cooker is about 1/3 in pricing comparing to that of the other competitors. Granted the competitor’s might have more layers of safety features and other bells and whistles. But for an average family, the Presto 01370 is a down-to-earth, fully functional and safe pressure cooker.
