  • Easy to use – this pressure cooker is very easy to use, especially with its preset cooking options. Everything can be easily selected on the front and it’s shown on a digital LED screen. Simply press the cooking mode you want, you can also choose from low to high pressure, and the pot will give you the time remaining before it’s done.
  • Classy – it looks very classy with the aluminium finish and black highlights, perfect for stylish kitchens and even small diners.
  • Easy to clean – it’s easy to clean since the cooking pot is dishwasher safe.


  • Delicate – As some customers have pointed out, you must be very careful in not scratching the bottom of the pot, otherwise it will not work as well.
