Expert Reviews


What reviewers liked

The Presto offers only one pressure setting, and you have to keep a closer eye on the controls, but it’s a great pot if you want to try out pressure cooking without spending a lot.
Durable. Heats Uniformly. Maintains Proper Pressure Automatically. Quick Cool Option. Cooks Quickly.
Even though it comes at a budget price, the pot is made from thick stainless steel rather than aluminum, which means it can be used to cook acidic foods and can be popped in the dishwasher.
