Product Reviewed: Sitra Pro Stainless Steal Pressure Cooker
Comment: Sitram Pro - the Best Stovetop Pressure Cooker over all other manufacturers.
I recently purchased the Sitra Pro Pressure Cooker from sitramusa.com. Prior to purchasing this pressure cooker, I did extensive research on many pressure cookers and searched stovetop pressure cooker reviews and ‘best’ pressure cookers.
I wanted something simple, stainless steel, a heat padding on the bottom for even cooking, seamless perpendicular walls (no bulge or unique design), well designed, no plastic or rubber components on the inside of the lid, well sourced materials, heavy duty and failsafe pressure valves. When I came across Sitra Pro, while there weren’t many videos available, it fit all the criteria I was looking for. I purchased 1 pressure cooker and after a couple of months of use here is what I found:
- Excellent cooking, easy and quick to reach and maintain pressure
- Quiet operation despite releasing a little steam to ensure accuracy
- Even heating so that the cooker does not need to be monitored every minute
- Incredibly quick cooking of meat that would have taken 4 times the time in the oven
- Easy steam release and one hand removal of lid
- Cleaning is easy and quick
- So far, no visible deterioration of the gasket for the lid
- Large pot that enables cooking whole chicken and other meats easily
- No plastic objects on the inside the lid – all metal (did not like various manufacturers that had plastic components on the inside of the lid which introduces short term failure points).
- Incredibly amazing tasting food...
When cleaning this pressure cooker, it is extremely easy and so far has maintained its reflective stainless steal luster.
I liked this pressure cooker so much that I bought a second one for a wedding gift. This is an excellent product to enable the healthy way of cooking (eliminate the microwave). This is something that will last for more than a generation.
