Presto 6-Quart Stainless Steel Deluxe Pressure Cooker

Presto 01365 6-Quart Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker, Deluxecheck pricesThis is one of Presto’s newer Stainless Steel Pressure Cookers.  It allows you to cook healthy meals up to 10 times faster.  The high speed pressure cooking preserves both flavors and nutrients.

You know it is one of the newer models because the pressure regulator on the lid automatically maintains the proper cooking pressure.  Many of the older models need to be constantly watched and the pressure manually maintained.

If you have been cooking with a pressure cook a long time this is just second nature.  But those of you just starting to use a pressure cooker will appreciate this added feature.


Some of the safety features are a pressure release device with the lid staying locked until it can be opened safely. Also included is a stainless rack for those recipes that call for layering food.  There is also a 64 page instruction manual with recipes.  As with all small electric kitchen appliances, the instructions should be read completely before the first use.  This is particularly true with a pressure cooker.  The newer pressure cookers are now manufactured so that it’s almost impossible for you to have the problems your grandmother had, but you need to be familiar with the instructions so your meals turn out just the way you want them.Rack for Presto PC

This Presto 6 quart  Pressure Cooker is fully immersible and dishwasher safe.  I am sure many of you will appreciate this convenient feature.

The construction of this pressure cooker is Tri Clad.  That means there are three layers.  There is a stainless steel layer on the outside and inside.  Between the two stainless layers is a layer of aluminum.  The aluminum helps to maintain an even distribution of heat.

presto 6 quart featuresWhat Users are Saying:


The majority of users comment on how much they love cooking in a pressure cooker because it is so fast and the meat turns out so tender.  Many of them have their own little tips and tricks in using a pressure cooker and those that were first time users were pleasantly surprised with the results and how easy it was to use.

Many after buying and using it for themselves,  gave it as a gift.  They felt they got a really good deal for the price.

Box for Presto Pressure CookerOthers who were skeptical about purchasing a pressure cooker because of the safety issues they had 50 years ago.  They were happy they made the purchase because all the safety problems have been fixed and the food turns out delicious.

Many said that the 6 quart size was the perfect size.


There were a few various complaints.  A few had a hard time removing the lid.  I would suggest practicing putting the lid on and taking it off  before actually cooking with it.  Also remember to read the instruction, there is a specific way to remove the lid correctly.  One complaint was that vegetables turned out mushy.  Each pressure cooker cooks a little bit differently.  Once you become familiar with yours you will have better results.  That applies to all pressure cookers, no matter what the make, model or size.

The Presto Pressure Cooker has the latest in safety features and is a good price for the quality. I really like the Tri-Clad aspect with stainless steel. This is a pressure cooker that both someone new to pressure cooking and veterans a like will get good results without worrying about any safety concerns.
