Kuhn Rikon Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker Review

Kuhn Rikon Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker is affordable. It is easy to use, most aesthetically pleasing kitchen appliance that I’ve come across. No, I am not writing this Kuhn Rikon Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker Review simply to charm you and entice you into buying this product. This excellent cooker was called “The Mercedes-Benz of pressure cookers” by New York Times for its high end services.

The company is well known for their excellent quality and support for making cookwares. Stovetop pressure cookers may not come with the advanced programmed settings like the electric pressure cookers, but these cookers will provide long and utility-friendly cooking experience.

In this Kuhn Rikon Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker Review, we are going to discuss about some major features of this product along with their advantages and some down parts.

Kuhn Rikon Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker


Superior Design with Steel and Aluminum Grants Durability

The pressure cooker is made with high-quality materials that protect it from damages. As a result, you can expect this Stove Top Pressure Cooker to serve you for years. The Kuhn Rikon Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker is made using 18/10 stainless steel. Therefore, it will provide steady service under high pressure cooking.

The handle is made of sturdy heat resistant plastic. You won’t feel the heat by holding the pressure cooker. With this stovetop cooking equipment, you don’t have to worry about the construction quality.

While the outer part is made with stainless steel, the inner side is made with aluminum. Aluminum is renowned for faster heat transferring. Kuhn Rikon will provide superior heating services with the aluminum core.

Kuhn Rikon Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker is Traditional

I figured Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker heats up quickly thanks to the aluminum bottom. You can expect “Traditional Style Pressure Cooking” as it borrows the concept from “Jiggle Type Traditional Cookers”. These actually release the pressure as they cook.

But there is a catch. Kuhn Rikon won’t make the loud “Hissing” noise as many of us would expect. I have to thank the makers for installing a tight sealing system that cancels the sound.

The Kuhn Rikon Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker is designed for the medium-range families with 7 to 8.5 quarts. It will easily fit in small kitchens. The compact sizes will also let you carry this cooker comfortably.

However, as most stove top pressure cooker reviews mention, Kuhn Rikon takes up more water to cook your meals. Some of the users may have to eat “Watery Food” as a result. My husband boils the extra bit of water that is left after the Pressure Release to save the time.

Safety features to ensure maximum protection

There is no safety issue with the Kuhn Rikon Pressure Cooker. This cooker is made with some integrated functions to provide maximum protection for the cook. The primary pressure release valve will open up if extra pressure is created and will let the vapor out.

A small pressure release valve is on the top of the pressure cooker to release pressures. So, if any ways the primary valve fails to release the vapor, secondary valve will help to release and maintain safe situation.

An Emergency Countermeasure

To provide an extra layer safety, the cooker comes with safety vents to pass out vapors. If the previous two safety-release option fails, the gasket will secure the vapor out to reduce the additional amount of pressure.  It will reduce the chances of any physical damages of the cooker due to high pressure.

You do not need to worry about your safety with this pressure cooker. These safety features will give you safe cooking experiences.

FAQ About the Product

Can the food items come into contact with aluminum while on stove?

No, it is nearly impossible to get into contact with the aluminum. The whole pressure cooker is covered with stainless steel. Unless one uses an “Aluminum Insert”, it is not possible.

Is it Noisy?

No, but you’ll hear slight “Hissing”. That too when you’ve heated the cooker too much. At the time of the hiss, just tone down the temperature. It will cool down. The pressure will then cook at 10lbs.

On which Cooktops can I use Kuhn Rikon Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker?

The official website says you can use it on Gas, Halogen, Induction, Electric and Ceran cooktops.

How Can I release the pressure quickly?

When finished with cooking, just flush cold water while keeping the cooker under sink. The pressure will quickly normalize as the pressure valve opens slowly. It is a better alternative than to wait around for minutes just to get the lid opened.

The Virdict

The aesthetic design and high-quality outfit make it a very beautiful product to have in the kitchen. It will fit in all the modern kitchens with enhancing the beauty of them. The compact size will help you to maintain small kitchen perfectly.

The price is all right comparing sturdy nature and safety options of this pressure cooker. Don’t worry about longevity or even how safe the pressure cooker is. It will provide relentless service for years. The safety measures are “Amateur Proof”.

I’d be recommending this product to people who look for a combo of design and performance when pressure cooking.
