Shaped like a classic stockpot, this pressure cooker has side grips and comes with a steaming trivet. Kuhn Rikon has revolutionized pressure cooking by inventing the automatic lid-locking system and the spring-loaded stationary safety valve. The only thing that hasn't changed is the principle by sealing ingredients and liquids in, foods cook in a very short time retaining flavor and vitamins and conserving energy. The generous size allows the cook to make enough for a small army. Cook a whole chicken, a 4-pound roast, even cheesecake! The pot's versatility will inspire you.
