As for brands, I have had them all: Futuro is good, I have an Italian brand at the cottage whose name I have forgotten, I have a T-Fal here and just replaced the Futuro on the boat with two Kuhn Ricoh's, which I love. Gave my daughter a FAgor. Right now I am entranced with the small Kuhn Ricoh but that will change too.

I love my WMF Perfect plus 6.5 Liter pressure cooker. It's made in Germany and is beautiful. The handle is removable for cleaning. Highly recommended. I've made pot roast, collard greens, stews, chicken, etc.

I have yet to try making bread, but that's something I would like to try.

Well, Christmas dinner is coming up and I'm planning on giving my limited pressure-cooking skills another go with collards (yes, we have to have collards for Christmas b/c I'm from the South after all). In my mind collards are supposed to slowly cook all day, but they seem like a good candidate to finally make something of my PC other than a space-taker!

Would anyone agree that 4 quart size is right for two people? Seems like removable handle or only side-lift handles is the best idea for space reasons.

I'm living aboard in a marina while outfitting for departure from CA next fall and would like to get squared away with cooking long before pushing off.

Thanks,
Mark

Does nobody here get Practical Sailor? There was a 4-page run down on pressure cookers in the December issue.

I recently purchased a 4 qt cooker on CF and think it is the perfect size for two. Anything bigger would not fit in my sink, so would be very hard to wash. 4 qt is plenty big for anything I would want to do for two. The only reason I could see wanting a bigger one is if I had a freezer and wanted to make a large quantity to freeze off or if I was having 4 or more guests for dinner.

Then again, the person I bought it from sold it because they never used it, preferring their 8 qt model.

I cooked some venison (that time of year again, neighbors always have too much) the other night, in my older, Italian made
Aeternum PC, with potatoes and carrots, a little red wine. It turned out great, tender and flavorful. You just have to time the addition of ingredients so that every part is ready at the same time.

The 12/10 Practical Sailor reviewed four stainless pressure cookers; Presto, Fagor Futuro, Pro-selections, and Kuhn Rikon. They recommended the Presto 4 quart stainless cooker (01341) as their "budget buy" ($44) and the Kuhn Rikon Duromatic as their Best Choice ($200). The Kuhn was rated excellent in everything except their recipe book while the Presto was rated mostly good with a few excellents (cookoff and eas of cleaning). We have a Presto and I'll let you know.

I'm trying to decide how much trouble to store a model with fixed handles when cruising. The Presto 4 qt. measures 16 inches across although the the pot itself is around 9 inches. I guess that it is only 6.5 inches tall helps out.

I have a 5l Kuhn Rikon. It's great for two and big enough for leftovers or four people. Very happy with it. Spare parts are readily available and it is easy to clean. It fits just fine in the galley sink to clean. I'd buy it again.

I am lucky enough to have a huge locker for pots and pans under my stove but the opening is the standard locker fold down door with a finger latch. I was lucky the 5L Kuhn Rico just fit trhough the opening. the locker is so big I carry a bundt pan for a cake I make once or twice a year.

my presto has been MAAAHHVELOUS..... love it--i have 6 qt here and i bought my former sail partner a 4 qt presto, but we didnt use it before i had to come back home..
i like my 6 qt because i can make pozole in it and is just right size for feeding 4 or 5 folks......i feed neighbors...
and i have all the room in the world for stashing pots and pans and foods and such..
