Prestige is not Prestige any more. I had reason to contact them recently with a query over their 6L Stainless Steel pressure cooker. They are now a company called Meyer who bought the Prestige company a few years ago but retained the name. Cannot comment on the quality now but likewise we have had many years (could be as many as 25 years) good use out of our 6L aluminium pressure cooker & have thought of moving over to stainless steel, the problem with the stainless steel pressure cookers are they only do 2 pressures & 12 psi is the highest so, keeping the aluminium one going, just replacing the gasket every few years is our decision.
Plastic quality is suspect indeed as I received one with already broken lid plastic in box ! Argos have exchanged it but meant 3 trips to store.
Got to love these. Pressure cookers rule. (y)
Just got it as a replacement to our years old Prestige... Looks wise OK but quality handle and the plastic lock on top of the handle looks very cheap and will surely break in few months time. Some Amazon reviews complained about it saying that it takes too long to cook and also on the bad Customer Service from Tower., I am thinking to return it and buy a trusted brand like Prestige.
The 4 Litre one is Aluminum ...I think it's just the 6L one that's Steel
