Keeps the pressure in the pot, not on you.

Modern pressure cookers are convenient, easy to use, and (yes!) safe. They help put dinner on the table fast—and make it taste as if you spent the whole day at the stove. Recipes such as fork-tender pot roast, pulled pork, short ribs, and stew that were once saved for weekends can be started when you get home from work. Dried beans are creamy and tender after just 10 minutes under pressure and risotto needs just 6 minutes under pressure to reach the perfect consistency. Our Best Buy pressure cooker is easy to operate, even if you’re new to pressure cooking. It hit all the high notes during our extensive testing, impressing our staff with its performance at just a fraction of the price of our winning model. With this deal, you’ll save even more.

Zavor Duo 8.4 Quart Pressure Cooker


Performing like our winner at a fraction of the price, this cooker has a fairly broad cooking surface, and its pressure indicator was easy to monitor. It cooked quietly and held pressure steadily without making us fiddle with the stove. Despite falling short of the 250°F target for high pressure, it cooked beef stew, pork ragu, risotto, and other dishes well and within recipe times. Its simple design made it easy to use and clean.

How We Tested Stovetop Pressure Cookers

We selected sturdy, nonreactive stainless-steel pressure cookers over aluminum models and came up with eight stovetop cookers—most with an 8-quart capacity—from about $65 all the way up to about $280. (We tested four electric pressure cookers separately. Ultimately, we preferred the stovetop models.) We ranked them on weight, bottom thickness, cooking surface diameter, highest temperature, cooking, ease of use, and evaporation loss.

How Pressure Cookers Work

Pressure cookers function based on a simple principle: In a tightly sealed pot, the boiling point of liquid is higher. As the pot heats up, pressure begins to build. This pressure makes it more difficult for water molecules to turn to vapor—therefore raising the boiling point from 212 degrees to 250 degrees.
