The quality and innovation that Kuhn Rikon has provided for over 80 years have given cooks the convenience of easy-to-use products for the kitchen. Kuhn Rikon’s precision-crafted tools blend Old World craftsmanship with modern technology, yielding impressively styled, yet functional pieces. They boast the broadest line of pressure cookers in the world, and their unique shapes and sizes won’t be found anywhere else.
I received my Kuhn-Rikon 5.25qt pan for my birthday in 1998. I have used this pan DAILY for the past 14 years to make rice, beans, soups, stocks, jams, potatoes, etc. It reduces the cooking time for brown rice from 45 minutes to 20, Basmati rice from 25 minutes to 5. It saves energy by reducing all the cook times for your favorite recipes by approximately half to 2/3. It heats evenly and is very safe and intuitive to use. It came with a recipe book and it has been very easy to adapt my own recipes to it once I was familiar. I am obsessed with homemade stocks and soups, and this pan is indispensable for this purpose. If you are considering a pressure cooker for speed, for energy saving, or whatever reason, it is the highest quality and a real value if you use it regularly. I know I am gushing! I can't help it--if I was only allowed one pan to use for the rest of my life, I would definitely choose this one
Is this item big enough to cook a 3-4 # piece of meat?

Best Answer:My daughter and I just used the pressure cooker (PC) for the first time. We cooked pork shoulder-about 4 lbs total-each piece was 1.5-2 lbs. First we browned each side of each piece in a skillet, then cooked the meat in the PC for 35 minutes. The meat was incredibly tender--falling apart on the fork. It was delicious. Because this was the first use-I researched and prepared in advance. Everything turned out beautifully and I'm excited to use the PC again.
