Kuhn Rikon or the Cuisinart Electric PC - Chefscatalog.com has it in sale for $99. I have the electric and love it after years of playing with them on the stove.

I've got an electric PC on my wish list (I still have room in the basement for more toys). I have one of the old Presto ones, but I'm always nervous using it. I'd like one that had auto shutoff...

Placed an order for the Fissler set. It's backordered until mid March I'll post more when it actually arrives. Mrs 40 C and talked it over she wasn't really thrilled about yet another plug-in electric appliance.

The Fissler seems very well done. German engineering etc, etc.

Package arrived yesterday. High quality materials and workmanship. Good documentation and small recipe book included. I really like the way the lid was designed, it takes the guess work out of aligning the tabs when closing.

Found an interesting comparison of stovetop pressure cookers that provides lots of good information on the topic:
Stovetop Pressure Cookers - Cook's Illustrated

Haven't had a chance to try it out yet. I'll update the thread again in a few days.

I had a Presto pressure cooker with the jiggle valve when my kids were growing up. It got a lot of use. Great for a Sunday Yankee Pot Roast. Good luck with your new toy. Happy cooking and eating. Sounds like you got a winner.

I got a chance to try this out tonight. Dinner in 1/2 hour.

Braised pork chops in white wine in the pressure skillet. 12 minutes. Transfer to serving platter in warm oven. Build sauce from drippings while next course is cooking.

Green beans and new potatoes in the pressure cooker 10 minutes with potatoes in the bottom and gb in the steamer insert. Add butter and mix together in serving bowl.

Everything came out fork tender and ready to eat. Nice way to make a quick dinner after a long day at the office.

I made a corned beef dinner in my slow cooker in 18 hours. That's pretty quick. I didn't have the time to do it in the PC. True story.
