Item: Fissler Vitaquick Pressure Cooker, 8.5qt
Overall Impression: This is it — the pot that has won me over to the safety, ease, and utility of pressure cooking!
As a newbie to pressure cooking, I did a lot of research before requesting the Fissler Vitaquick 8.5 quart model for review. I wanted a pressure cooker that was safe, simple to use, and could take on larger tasks such as cooking a whole pound of beans or making several quarts of stock. The 8.5 quart Fissler Vitaquick kept coming up as the pot I needed in order to meet my needs, so I took the plunge. Quite a few pounds of beans and chicken scraps layer, I can reliably add my wholehearted recommendation to the list. This pressure cooker is a winner!
