Presto offers several different pressure cooker models in this particular size, including stainless steel, aluminum and an electric-powered model. The electric 6-quart model features a stainless steel design.
Pressure Cooker Advantages
Not just for canning and preserving, pressure cookers provide a sealed cooking chamber that prepares foods as much as 10 times faster than an ordinary piece of cookware. Low-calorie meals are easy to make, and the flavors and nutrients are preserved. Presto pressure cookers heat quickly and evenly. Their durable construction virtually ensures a long life, even with frequent use. The included instruction booklet contains many recipes and hints to get the most out of the vessel.
