The majority of the people in the world are split into two camps; those who love cooking, and those who only deem it necessary as a way to avoid hunger. It doesn’t matter what camp you are in however, as in this review we will be looking at a piece of kitchen machinery that can help you out whether you love or loath spending time in the kitchen. We will be looking at the Presto 01362 Pressure Cooker.

Why do I need a pressure cooker?

It might be small, and you might be worried that this will just be another machine that will sit on the side of your kitchen never getting used. Well let me tell you that if you use it right, you won’t ever look back. This Presto cooker can cook meat, vegetables, and almost anything else you can think of fast, and whilst it is doing this it will help to tenderise the more economical cuts of meat too meaning that grisly bit of pork just became less chewy. To cut to the chase, with this compact cooker you can take a lot of the stress out of dinner time, and if you want more information you can click here.

I’ve already got a pretty busy kitchen, where will it fit in?

Resembling a saucepan and taking up a very small amount of space, this machine will fit in your kitchen whatever size it may be. It has been designed for use on smooth-top counters and induction ranges, and once you have finished your cooking you can just pop it straight into the dishwasher to clean it. You won’t even notice it’s there (until you are tucking into a delicious beef sandwich you just used the cooker to help make!)

Always look on the bright side?

Touch wood that nothing would ever go wrong with your shiny new kitchen appliance, but should the worst happen then the Presto comes with an extended 12 year warranty so you won’t have to worry about it for a long time yet. This means you have 12 worry free years of easier cooking due to the steam induction techniques used in these machines. You’ll be tucking into dinners a lot faster than you were used to when they were being cooked in your conventional oven, and with its simple to use design and interface you’ll be cooking like a pro in no time at all.

Being perfect is tough isn’t it?

Alas, all good things must come to an end and the same must be said about looking at the positive elements of this pressure cooker. It’s time to see what’s not so good about it. Some previous customers have complained that the build quality is not what you would call top notch, and some screws have even fallen out of it. Others have mentioned that even though it is advertised as Stainless Steel, after a couple of washes oxidization appeared and as a result the rust ruined any future cooking plans. With the 12 year warranty in place these worries should not be too prevalent, but they are still worth considering.

So, should I buy it?

If you want something that can help take the stress out of cooking time then you should seriously consider this cooker. It’s small, efficient, and will save you a lot of time when you are planning your meals. If you are like me and want pure convenience when you come in from work, then a pressure cooker could be for you.
