Cuisinart 6 qt. Electric Pressure Cooker
Date Published: 08/15/2013
I give this pressure cooker high marks. It is so easy to use and has all the safety features you could possibly want. It has 2 psi levels - 6 or 10. The float top needs to be washed regularly to prevent sticking. It has a 3 year limited warranty - longer than most.
4.3 / 5 stars
