This Fagor Professional Duo 6-qt. Pressure Cooker and Canner saves you up to 70% of cooking time over other traditional cooking methods. It features a triple-safety system that prevents opening before all pressure is released; 2 separate pressure settings; automatic pressure release; 18/10 stainless steel with an encapsulated bottom for even heat distribution; and steam basket. Recipe book included. Cooking pot is dishwasher safe; hand wash lid. Imported. Imagine turning dried beans into soup in just 20 minutes, cooking risotto in 7 minutes, or sitting down to fresh cioppino in 3 minutes. This 6-quart cooker helps you fix these and other delicious meals in about 70-percent less time than with other cooking methods while also using one of the healthiest cooking procedures, pressurized steam, to retain more of foodâ€™s vital nutrients, delicious taste, and natural color. Made in Spain, the Duo pressure cooker is constructed of high-quality 18/10 stainless steel with an encapsulated aluminum base for even and efficient heat distribution. All ingredients go inside the cooker at once and the lid twists and locks into place. Once you set the cooker to one of two pressure settings, it is ready to go. A sliding pressure lock on the handle ensures that the lid will not open until all the pressure is released, and, for additional safety, the Duo has two pressure release valves to prevent excessive steam build-up. The cooker has a black ergonomically designed handle, along with a helper handle, that makes it easier to lift it off the stove. The Duo comes with a stainless-steel steamer basket and trivet plus a full-color cookbook with over 50 recipes and a detailed instruction manual. It is safe to use on gas, electric, ceramic, or induction stovetops and should be hand washed with mild soap to preserve the mirror finish and the gasket. --Cristina Vaamonde

All American 921 21-1/2-Quart Pressure Cooker/Canner
Manufacturer: Wisconsin Aluminum Foundry
Brand: All American
Heavy Cast Aluminum Pressure Cooker/Canner This heavy-duty pressure cooker's large capacity is probably best utilized for canning (though it would also be great for a number of cooking tasks). A pressure cooker is generally recommended when canning vegetables and nonacid fruit, since the high heat that can be generated will kill more bacteria than a regular hot water bath. Made from cast aluminum, with sturdy screws to seal the lid to the pot, this pressure cooker requires no rubber or plastic gaskets or rings. Its 21-1/2-quart capacity holds 19 pint jars or 7 quart jars. A three-setting pressure regulator valve is included, and the pressure gauge gives a clear reading. Made in Wisconsin, this is an American classic. --Julija Gelazis
