I all depends on what kind of quality cookware you want. I have a WMF pressure cooker which I bought in 1975 for £55 (which was a lot of money then). This cooker has been used extensively (at least twice a week for the past 35 years on a veriety of heat sources, including wood stoves. All I had to do was to buy a new rubber ring a couple of times during this period. The pot looks almost new and operates still perfect. This is why you pay more.

But if you only want things to last for a couple of years, I suppose an Aldi or Lidl stainless steel pressure cooker for £19.99 would do.

I bought mine from here: http://www.kitchenwarexpress.co.uk/ and as far as I know meyer/prestige are leaders in the cookware market and the quality is top notch
5 litre Aluminium Pressure Cooker Product ref: 57052
Came with free delivery too. I've never heard of the brand that the OP has listed and to the same extent I am not saying it's crap--but £85 quid for a pressure cooker ... !!!

First of all, the prestige stainless steel pressure cooker from this site is £60, plus postage.

I would argue that the WMF/Fissler pressure cooker are better quality. The steel walls and bottom are thicker and the outer finish is more durable to scratching.

I can only conclude from the cold votes that ppl on HotUK are looking for cheap but not quality (have noticed that before).

Why not get one from Aldi/Lidl for £30, rather than get a cheap aluminium. At least they are stainless steel and you don't poison yourself with aluminium pots (perhaps you don't care about the either).

The pots I have I bought in Canada and are proper chefs cooking pots and pans and they cost a couple of hundred ££'s, the food still tastes the same as when cooked in the cheapish prestiege pot that I got from argos and the cheap one is easier to clean.

First off - This (57050) 6 LITRE S/S Pressure Cooker is £60 which includes the delivery charge.

I would argue that the WMF/Fissler pressure cooker are better quality. The steel walls and bottom are thicker and the outer finish is more durable to scratching.

Based on what evidence? As far as I am aware "Tower" and "Meyer" (who own the Prestige brand) are two of the biggest Pressure Cooker manufactures in the world. I dont belive you would grow that big selling low quality cheap 'material' products.

I can only conclude from the cold votes that ppl on HotUK are looking for cheap but not quality (have noticed that before).

You seem to have issues with people buying high quality for as cheap as possible, as against buying high qualtity for as much as the manufacturer or reseller can screw out of you. It's called buyer remorse - get over it!

Why not get one from Aldi/Lidl for £30, rather than get a cheap aluminium. At least they are stainless steel and you don't poison yourself with aluminium pots (perhaps you don't care about the either).

I am currenty unaware of any current health issue RE aluminium poisioning and cookawre. This also appears to be the case with our Government, Trading Standards and the Government Food Agency. Never mind every cookware manufacturer who is currently liable for this mass POISONING. "Poison yourself with aluminium pots." Is otherwise known as scare-mongering.

My ex-wife ended up with the Aluminium pressure cooker we had. Best place for it! That "same-y" taste everything has isn't something I am mad about.

In 14 years, I have never bothered replacing it! If I was going to, it wouldn't be an aluminium one, the reduced discolouration of stainless steel alone is worth paying double for, and the newer pressure release mechanisms make Tower & Prestige ones seem like Ancient Greek artefacts.... unless you really want to texture-coat the ceiling! :whistling:

Your PC truely is 14 years old and no doubt still in service. However, with out analysing the fully range from company X and Y; I think you will see from the link: http://www.kitchenwarexpress.co.uk/product-listing/Category:113-Pressure%20Cookers/ that of the 5 listed only one has the traditional release mechanisim, which in no doubt has been thoroughly tested by a generation of mums & dads.


My whole point in this debate is that £85 is an outrageous sum for the OP's listed PC and if the focus of our discussion changed to finding retailer X or Y who could do this PC for Twenty pounds less, then there would be nothing to discuss. As comparively speaking, world leading cookware manufactures are currently doing like-for-like for-less and thats what this is all about - "A HOTUKDEAL"

And to that end; my concluding piece:

If you look across the border to India, then you will find the Country where the mass of pressure cookers are made, Including Prestige.

So wrong country and generally speaking you are at least on the right continent. Its just a shame that its a rather large continent.

I note the £85 WMF doesn't offer a lifetime warranty on its products like the Prestige one! I'd say Prestige has got ultimate faith in it's products and their quality.

Don't keep posting that myth - plenty of contrary information posted in response to your previous comment.

Same one that I have and nothing wrong with it, as I said before just as good as more expensive ones.

I see amazon also have a 6.5 litre wmf at the same price as the 4.5 litre:-

http://www.amazon.co.uk/WMF-Perfect-Pressure-diametre-stainless/dp/B000UAOJ2A/ref=sr_1_10?ie=UTF8&s=kitchen&qid=1266237806&sr=1-10

and yet another 6.5 litre at a higher price:-

http://www.amazon.co.uk/WMF-Perfect-Pressure-diameter-stainless/dp/B00008XWYR/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&s=kitchen&qid=1266237806&sr=1-4


Does anyone have any info on the differences between in the two 6.5 litre jobbies? I can see an extra blue thingy on the handle of the more expensive one.


On the subject of quality, I see there are nothing but 5 star review (perhaps 1 4 star) which is pretty imressive for 30 testimonials. I haven't used a PC for years but I did have a prestige which was a reliable workhorse other than the very penetrating hiss which got on my nerves occasionally. I note one of the WMF write-ups say there's no hiss with this model - that's definitely a bonus.

thanks if anyone can enlighten me on my queries above...

There is no "hiss" whatsoever with mine... Most people on here don't understand quality, probably shop at poundland...

I'm definitely interested in this cooker but I tend to go for bigger pans (I like to cook lots then freeze) and am wondering about the difference between the 4.5 and 6.5 litre that amazon seem to be selling at the same price.

From what I can see from the picture of this cooker, there's a little blue button at the top end of the handle (near the middle of the lid) which is present on the more expensive of the options - i.e. the 4.5 litre and also the 6.5 litre at close to £100.

Any idea what this is? Does yours have it? Could it be a visual pressure indicator or maybe a pressure release valve.

Thanks for any info..

Mine is one of the more expensive ones, the button you mention is a pressure indicator, the higher it goes the more pressure!

Much obliged and thanks for the pics.

I've just ordered the slightly pricier 6.5 litre and looking forward to brewing up my oxtail stews in considerably less than the 4 hours it normally spends on top of the stove.

- thanks for the tip!

(thought I'd replied to this but can't see post so this is second attempt)

- just to say, thanks for info and for posting the pics too.

I just ordered the larger of the WMF cookers and looking forward to cutting down the cooking time for my oxtail stews etc.

I can sort-of see why folk are luke-warm about this if, for example, the prestige is doing what's needed (amazon's user feedback on the prestige is pretty good although there are one or two serious malcontents!). I've a weakness for decent kitchen equipment so don't mind paying a bit more. Plus, I happen to think that a quiet pressure cooker is definitely worth the extra.

Thanks for the tip!

The only difference that I can see is that the more expensive one is "Perfect Plus" and has "Flame shield protection on handle". Maybe this is the blue thingy you're mentioning?
