That £17 deal was for 6L one. This is the best price I saw for 7L cooker. Would be a bit too big for me, but the price is great.

get diced beef 700g-1kg, 3x bell peppers, 2 packets of mushrooms. get beef in cornflour, fry in portions, put aside. chuck in cubed bell peppers in with chopped mushrooms and let it cook for few minutes. add bay leaves, pepper, salt, allspice/pimento (same thing?) into your mushrooms, add beef back with all the juices, add tomato puree 2 tablespoons and water to just about cover it all. cook under pressure for 30 min and let pressure release naturally. add more spices to taste. serve with rice. enjoy!

Edit: forgot about smoked paprika - add one heaped tablespoon.

I bought the same 7L one for £17.49 in June this year... Had to return it as wife said it was too big...

how can it be "too big"... can you not just put less in it ?

these are cheap because they are limited to 11.6lb of pressure (similar to electric pressure cookers) while a normal quality stove top pressure cooker has a high pressure setting of 15lb, the difference in pressure can add a good bit to the cooking time and makes following recipes a bit harder.

Thanks, I figured it was cheap for a reason - I'll keep looking for branded/better quality

Waste of energy (heating bigger vessel) and storage space if you are never going to cook at that capacity

mmmmm, it's this lower pressure that's really put me off

We use a similar cooker (not this exact brand so not sure about the pressure difference). We do see the slower cooking times and continously escaping pressure, but it's not all bad. We use it for cooking rice, boiling Lentils for Dal (which is usually a heavy process and with insufficent pressure the resulting Dal paste wouldn't be a paste but that's not the case).
