How To Choose The Best Pressure Cooker

The highest rated-pressure cooker is a useful kitchen appliance to make quick meals. However, different products with different features and functions will give you different outcomes. Thus, consider the following elements before making a purchase:


Although not all stainless steel pressure cookers are the same, this is a high-quality, durable material. Before picking up any product, you should check the label and bottom stamp in advance. Ensure that it indicates “18/10 Stainless Steel” (a composition of 18% chromium and 10% nickel). Please take a look at the advantages of Chromium and nickel materials:
  • They can resist stain and corrosion. However, you must ensure that the stainless steel includes at least 10.5% chromium.
  • Nickel not only increases the protective layer of chromium but also adds gleam and shine.

Exact pressure indicator and quick release

The standard best rated electric pressure cooker must reach 15psi (pounds per square inch) to cook most pressure cooker recipes. Moreover, your model should have an accurate indicator, such as a pop-up indicator or colored marker, to indicate when your model reaches this level.

The quick-release option plays a vital role in using a pressure cooker. This mechanism can lower the pressure inside quickly without losing the heat.

The quick equalized pressure allows you to add other ingredients from your pressure cooker recipes. After that, you can keep cooking with the switchback.

Safety features

Unlike the old pressure cookers in the past, most modern models come with several safety features. In case there is overpressure, your model will vent excess steam from a valve stem. You can recognize this thing through an audible "hiss". If the pressure still keeps increasing, a designed safety aperture of the lid will push the sealing gasket out.

The pressure cooker size

Which one should you choose: a 4-quart, 6-quart, 7-quart, or 8-quart pressure cooker?

This depends on the number of portions you need to prepare, your budget, and your storage space. According to Vickie Smith's recommendation, you had better pick up a 6-quart pressure cooker as the minimum. In the event of a bigger budget, you can invest in 7-to-8-quart models. And keep in mind this rule:

No matter what food you want to cook with a pressure cooker, you can just fill two-thirds full. If your food foam or froth while cooking, fill half full of foods.

You can cook a small amount of food in a large pressure cooker, but you can't cook a large amount of food in a small model.

Warranty and accessories

No one wants to waste their money on a bad-quality product. Do you want to buy a new cooker just after a short time of use?

If not, consider product quality and warranty. I strongly recommend you buy a pressure cooker from reliable companies where have available parts and accessories.


The non-stick pressure cooker is never an ideal choice because the non-stick surface can't last long. What's more, some health issues are surrounding non-stick coatings.

What is the best pressure cooker?

It should be made from high-quality, durable stainless steel and has enough safety features. It’s best to come with a good warranty and available in part and accessory replacements. Furthermore, its size should suit your kitchen and your demand.
