Pressure cooker reviews

We test four new pressure cookers from Fissler, Hawkins, Silit and Tefal.

Last updated: 10th July 2014

Pressure cookers are known for making hearty meals fast, which is great if you have a big family to feed. The catch? You're unlikely to get a cooked meal from go to whoa in, say, 45 minutes. You'll need to factor in extra time for searing meat, for example, and for the contents of the cooker to cool down before serving.

We test four new pressure cookers ranging in price from $135 to $616, to help you:

  • decide what to buy
  • compare features and performance
  • know what to look for.
