Question - What pressure cooker?

I am in the process of purchasing a pressure cooker - I have decided between one of the two below:

TEFAL Clipso Control Plus - 8L Pressure Cooker
All-American 10-1/2-Quart Pressure Cooker Canner

I lean towards the All-American cooker as it doesn't have any seals, it's metal - metal. I believe the TEFAL will have seals which need to be replaced (although I can't find any info on its seals)

Would anyone recommend one of the two?

Thanks,
Paul.

One of my pressure canners is the All-American 925, 25qt. canner (and I guess you could cook in it, too... for an army of people). I LOVE IT! I do most of my pressure cooking in a smaller Presto pressure cooker (that is also labeled as a canner, which is poor advertising). I follow the sage advice of the USDA and I don't pressure can anything with a canner/cooker smaller than 16 quarts. I highly recommend the All-American, but I would only cook in it and not ever can in it.

Thanks for the response, I've ordered the 10qt version as all I am doing is cooking with it, I hadn't even heard of canning before yesterday so I don't think i'll ever want to be doing that :)

Thanks again,

Paul.

Oh, you'll love it! It cuts down on cooking time sooooo much! Tough pieces of meat are fall-off-the-bone in 20 minutes of pressure cooking. Enjoy!

I now use a small pressure cooker for my individual needs, plus I have a Microwave 3-qt "TenderCook" pressure cooker, and they both are great for meals. Besides the speed of cooking, the sealed environment prevents vitamin loss so your food is more beneficial.
