If you put the kids in it first, then you both climb in on top and squash them down, you should all fit in it :p:p

Can never be too big IMHO I have a 15 litre and 22 litre one which are great for cooking whole hams and turkeys.
7 litre should easily do 4 people, I suppose it depends on poertion size, but defo 4 if you are eating healthy sized portions, my trouble is if I make a stew/casserole etc everyone wants second helpings.

I think it's a good size. Ultimately depends What you use it for. There is some videos on YouTube.

Would have been even better if stainless steel but heat still given as excellent price.

its fine for a family of four

Heat added thanks

These are such great value. Realised the other day that I've had mine for 30 years, since I was given it as a student. Still using it most days. Fantastic for soup etc

I much prefer these to slow cookers, can really tough cuts of meat meat in the mouth in 45mins, just remember you get no reduction at all, so you really need to simmer the sauce down afterwards to reduce it. You can't beat slow cooking in the oven but if you havnt got a spare 4 hours these are great. I did a bit of research and ended up getting a vmf perfect plus pressure cooker, they are the bees knees.

These are good pressure cookers had one for a few years,especially for that price.

Thanks - ordered & heat added.

There are some health concerns over using aluminium, are there any truths to this?

Not according to [this] Canadian article. Unless of course you are getting your daily dose of aluminium elsewhere.

According to Health Canada, cooking a meal in an aluminum pan can add about 1 to 2 mg aluminum to your food. The World Health Organization estimates that people can safely consume about 50 mg a day without harm, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has not set an upper intake limit.

Aluminium has its benefit of being a better heat conductor and lighter than stainless steel, although obviously not as durable.

Yes there are lots of reports that they should be avoided and not just for health wise, the aluminium limits what what kind of foods can be cooked in it as the aluminium reacts with quite a lot of foods.

High aluminium intake is an health risk but I'm pretty sure that's not why this has been reduced

Thank you just ordered it. The one I'm

Currently using is crap ?

I have one of these and I use it alot. Curried goat cooks in less than 45 mins and its so tender. Cuts down on cooking time and saves gas\electric. Downside is its quite big to store.

you should of received a trivet with your cooker if not then a big glass bowl works for some things, myself i have an electric pressure cooker with a non stick liner that i use for curries and stews and a stainless steel Fagor CHEF8RXTRA that i use for larger things. I started with an aluminium pressure cooker but i would not go back to one, i found they took too long for the lid to seal properly which resulted in a lot of drips and escaped steam until the heat had reached the lid so it could seal properly.

£20 including delivery.

This is better for another £7.50:

Russell Hobbs 7l Aluminium Pressure Cooker - £24.98 + £1.99
groupon.co.uk/dea…7l-

Branded and will be better quality.

EDIT/ Actually - they look identical in the pictures. They must be made in the same factory and Russell Hobbs stamps their brand on some of them.

In my experience it will last a lot longer than 10yrs because after a few uses it will end up at the back of a cupboard with your other rarely used kitchen items.............that's what happened to mine anyway (_;)

great deal, just ordered one for collection. Argos site says they are selling fast.

I tried doing stews in my stainless steel one, adding a packet of colmans/schwatz casserole mix, but it burnt on badly because it thickens the liquid, so I add it towards the end and continue cooking unpressurised, so I can stir it.

When doing stews, I put one of the separators that came with mine in the bottom instead of its trivet, to keep the meat, tomatoes etc from touching the sides or bottom, which helps a little.

It also helps a tiny bit if your pressure cooker has a good thick thermal base to spread the heat evenly, and more importantly if all the seals are in good condition (ie no leaks) so you can have the gas as low as possible without losing pressure.

Just ordered, never knew I needed one until now.
My granny used to wash my grandads y-fronts in a pan on the cooker, I'm wondering could I add water and use this for my boxers (_;)

​There is a great book on how to cook children - amazon.co.uk/How…710

Judging by the questions and comments on this thread there is going to be a significant rise in calls for fire engines and ambulances

OOS....for me

Aluminium cause cancer

For a pressure cooker you definitely want stainless steel. These aluminium ones lose their shine very quickly and can't be put in a dishwasher. A Prestige 6l costs about double this but is worth it and the accessories (gasket etc) are available in a lot of stores.
