Umm I'd like to know a bit more about this pressure cooker before purchase.

What safety features does it have? Does it pressurise at circa15psi? Why no model number?

Tread with caution.

I believe that these give a choice of 5 and 10 psi. That equates to cooking temperatures of ~110C and ~115C and not the ~120C that you get at 15 psi.

All these GSW cookers, IIUC, have a three-stage safety system, the final one being a non-continuous metal rim around the silicon rubber seal, so that, if all else fails, the seal itself can vent if pressure rises enough. The manual pressure release button interlocks with the body, so it isn't possible to rotate the lid other than with the pressure release activated. So you can't pressurise it without the interlock in place, or open it with the interlock in place.

These stainless steel ones are better than aluminium ones in so many ways. Also, with these "spring" action pressure valve types, you don't have the temptation to add the odd weight from the kitchen scales to the pressure set weight - just to get the cooking time down a little more....

Tesco had a pressure cooker in store the other day for £29.99.

That's what I get for being lazy! Haha thanks

Does anyone know how much difference it only going to 10 lb as opposed to the more usual 15 would make to cooking times?

you would probably need to add 20 to 25% extra to the cooking time, mine is a 105 kilopascals model (15 psi) so never had the need to look into it more.
You will find a good pressure cooker info site here

Thanks very muchly Blootoon.
That's really helpful. Makes a little difference, but not a massive one...really good to know, and those timings are really helpful on the link too.
Now I need to find out if the pan is dishwasher safe on this one..I called Lidl and they didn't know!!

This looks fairly decent for the money. A German pressure cooker with dual pressure settings with high at 14.5psi which is as close to 15 that makes no difference.

I would go with this myself but I need something which is larger in capacity and has a wider diameter of 28cm. Not easy to find without paying over £100.

French Tefal pressure cookers are a waste of time IMO. Very low pressure levels on them.

Where do I find a product manual for this (doesn't appear to be on Lidl website)?

I have bought one, looks great for the price, inside it has a user manual and it has a spare sealing ring a steamer and spare other rubber bits,all stainless steel, apart from rubbery bits,I hope it makes me a better cook.

Well, apart from your rubbery bits, you should be fine!

I, too have just bought one. Of course the manual is 10 times thicker than the English-only section and it doesn't have any suggested menus, sadly. But it looks a good quality and I believe stainless steel pressure cookers are better than aluminium ones. The maximum pressure is 16psi, which is fine.

Yes have done a few dishs that have left rubbery bits!, its shame there is no recipe book but it does have timings for help

Yes, the timings are a help even if there's no method. It will make a change from my conventional hob cooking where I use the smoke alarm as the timer....

Hope someone can help me....I just purchased the last one from my local lidl store and unfortunately it was opened. We found the extra seal that comes with it which was lucky but now I've got it home and opened it there are no instructions with it. Does anyone know where I can get a copy from....Thanks
