I started out with a Russell Hobbs 8 quart electric pressure cooker. It failed under warranty--3 times! It was great when it worked, but it didn't stay working very long. I returned it for a refund, and purchased a Kuhn Rikon 7 liter turn top model, which works beautifully on my stove top. Couldn't be happier with it! It's much more versatile than the electric one was. I like that the top has lines that clearly indicate the pressure level--no guessing by how often it "hisses". It operates almost silently unless the pressure is too high, then it hisses a bit to tell me to turn it down. I like the turntop model because you can pull up the top to release the pressure--no standing there holding the valve down with a wooden spoon. I use it at least once or twice a week. You can make stew in half an hour that tastes like it's been simmering all day long. Dried beans can be done in 25 minutes with no soaking, if you've soaked them, 15 minutes will do it. My husband calls it "The Blaster". Can't recommend it highly enough!

Wise choice!!

I own the same model. The thing that I especially like about it is that it does not make that hissing noise like most units do!
