Same great quality as the 8.5 Quart but make sure it's big enough for you. Not as much space to brown items. Some recipes will call for the larger size.

Here is a Great deal on a Combination set that includes the recommended 8 1/2 Quart Pressure Cooker which is more versatile for most kitchens, and the 4.2 qt pressure skillet



I am an avid viewer of America’s Test Kitchen and in their testing of the best pressure cookers, they ranked the Fissler Vitaquick 8.5 Quart Pressure cooker number 1! Take a look at this video for a terrific overview of what they looked for when testing, and why the Fissler Pressure Cooker came out on top in their competition:

This is Why Fissler Pressure Cookers are your best choice:

Stainless Steel NOT Aluminum
Fissler Pressure Cookers are stainless steel. Why don’t you want aluminum? Aluminum reacts with acidic foods such as tomatoes, giving your food a metallic taste. Aluminum is less durable. Aluminum won’t work with induction cooktops. Aluminum is fine as a disk inside the base to help distribute heat evenly but not as the primary external material of the pot.

Fissler Pots of the Same Size nest together to save storage space

Shape of the Pot
The shape of the pot is very important and Fissler Has it right. First, low and wide is preferable to taller for a couple of reasons. Wide makes it easier to brown items and to see and reach into the pot. If it’s too tall, again it’s hard and maybe even dangerous to see inside. We also want to see straight sides and a heating base that is the full width of the pot. If the pot bulges out from the base, flames will lick the sides of the pot and burn food to the inside. Flames that heat beyond the disk can also damage the handles and seals, shortening the life of your pressure cooker. So – A smaller heating disk means that you must keep the flame lower and therefore taking longer to heat up. Since you only start measuring the cooking time once the cooker has heated up, quick heating is essential and Fissler Vitaquick pressure cookers get this right. (and Fissler pots of the same size stack in the drawer)

Thick heating base is crucial – Fissler’s is the thickest in the business for fast, even heating and temperature maintenance

Consistent Heating
Maintaining heat and pressure is essential so that you don’t undercook your food. A thicker heating plate helps to maintain high heat and Fissler has the thickest heating plate of the popular pressure cookers meaning they heat evenly and hold the heat once they are cooking. Fissler pressure cookers heat quickly, evenly and stay hot better than other pressure cookers.

Proper Pressure
One thing you’ll notice from the test kitchen video is that the Fissler Vitaquick Pressure Cooker was the ONLY one in the test to achieve the desired/claimed pressure of 15 psi and 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Less temperature and pressure means that the food might not be cooked properly if you follow the recipe. You might have to heat it up again and continue cooking which defeats the whole purpose!

Pressure Indicator is easy to Read from Across the Kitchen

Easy to see Pressure Indicator
The Pressure indicator is easy to see from across the kitchen so you don’t have to hover over it as it’s heating up. When you pressure-cook, you heat it up and then turn it down to low for the balance of the cooking so this is an important feature.

Low Evaporation
Poor seals can mean a loss of moisture and pressure which will mean undercooked food. The Fissler Pressure cookers have fantastic seals and are solidly constructed and perform exceptionally in pressure tests.

Ease of Use and Cleaning
As I’ve already pointed out, the design of the Fissler Pressure Cookers – low and wide – makes it easy to brown meats and the pressure indicator design is easy to read from across the kitchen. It also has a convenient automatic lock and is one of the few pressure cookers that is completely dishwasher safe — even the handle!

Stove-Top NOT Electric
The best pressure cookers are stove top models, not stand alone electrics. The stand alones cannot attain the high temperatures and pressures expected for pressure cooking. They usually have non-stick interiors that get damaged quickly, are difficult to clean properly, and are difficult to empty into the sink. If you want to pressure cook, you really REALLY need a stove-top model and not an electric.

YES! More Expensive, but Worth it for the Quality and Performance
You can find decent pressure cookers like the Fagor brand for less, but the quality is not really on par with Fissler and quality is very important when it comes to pressure cooking. We would also choose Fissler over the Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers — another premium brand which doesn’t perform as well simply because they are not designed as well as the Fissler cookware. The bottom line is, if you want to pressure cook (it’s trending in popularity for good reason!) you don’t want to get one that won’t work properly in the times specified in your recipes. You don’t get to poke your food with a thermometer until you’ve let out the pressure — and if it’s undercooked, you have to heat it up again. That’s the performance argument that Fissler Vitaquick Pressure Cookers Win every time. That, and they are beautiful, high-quality German cookware.
