Verified Purchaser & Review by K F 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: Good - 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.

Verified Purchaser & Review: Tal658 Sitram is one of the great values in the world of commercial-quality cookware. It combines outstanding performance and design at excellent price points. My family ran a catering business, so I’ve been cooking in commercial kitchens or as a serious amateur for over 50 years. I bought my first Sitram pots in the 1980s (the Catering line, with welded handles), and have added to those since. We use a piece of Sitram cookware at least once a day and everything is in perfect condition after 35 years of heavy use. As further evidence of its durability, we’ve used Sitram cookware while taking classes at the Institute for Culinary Education, in New York City, where it takes a beating. When one newly purchased pot had a problem, Sitram replaced it immediately based on the photo I sent them, so they stand behind their products in the rare event that there is an issue. The most compelling performance feature is outstanding heat conductivity. A large stock pot or kettle can be kept simmering over the lowest of flames. Clean-up is a breeze and the stainless-steel finishes are bullet-proof. While often an overlooked afterthought, the long handles are shaped in such a way as to make pouring from saucepans a simple task; much cookware has toy-like handles that are difficult to grasp firmly, while Sitram handles are a pleasure. Likewise, whatever the appeal to some of glass lids that are breakable, the stainless Sitram lids have easy-to-grasp handles and fit snugly. Very highly recommended.

In my career, I have worked with Sitram cookware on many occasions. Sitram offers many different lines of cookware suitable for different applications in our industry. In our ever-moving industry, cookware shouldn’t be a daily concern. The Sitram Profiserie line has been a working miracle for us every day. It is truly support that got you covered! It has been almost one and a half years since I bought my SitraBella:SitraBella Red Round Enamelled Cast Iron Dutch Oven 5L from you and I am still totally in love with this cooking utensil. It cooks like a dream and is so easy to clean and maintain. I wouldn’t think of making a stew, soup or any other dish without it! The only downside I have with is is the red enamel chipped off in several places around the rim of the cocotte. I don’t know how or why that happened but it doesn’t affect the cooking ability of the utensil. I still need a medium size saute pan and when I’m ready to buy, I will definitely buy a Sitram! Keep up the good work! 4 3/4 stars!!.

I bought my first two Sitram pots seven years ago on sale and fell in love with them. I wasn’t familiar with this brand but it was highly recommended so I gave them a try. Over the last few years these have become my “go-to pots”. The quality, conductivity and ease to clean make cooking so much fun. During these trying times of staying home and cooking even more, I decided to treat myself to a Horeca R 6.4L half stockpot and love the size! This gives me extra flexibility along with my 3qt and 11qt pots. And Culinary Habana’s / Sitram USA’s customer service is the best. They answered and resolved a question I had about my order efficiently and professionally and provided speedy delivery. I recommend Sitram pots to everyone I know who loves to cook. I love the style of the pots and their durability and they always look good. Great products at such a reasonable price!

I am on my second Sitram 11 inch fry pan after replacing a well used pan by donating it to my sister-in-law who is still using it. I bought the first one because of an ad by Georges Perrier who extolled the virtues of a nearly stick free surface from a pan made of stainless steel. I have never found a coated, Teflon or other coating, pan that I like so I made the decision to get the first one and have never looked back. The thing is perfect for making sticky sauces like cheese which can get very gooey and sticky. Eggs, steak, sausage or potatoes slide right out and clean up is always simple. The heat distribution is phenomenal with no hot or cold spots and heating up is very fast and reliable. All in all I am really pleased with this single Sitram pan and may well start replacing some of my other well used pans with Sitram. And I have to add that SitramUSA is very supportive and customer service is very personable and easy to work with. Highly recommended all around. Kent K

I was determined to find and buy high quality cookware at a reasonable price, and you made that happen. I have already prepared meals in the large sauté and conical sauce pans, and will be using the Rondeau very soon. The conductivity is superior to many other high-end stainless steel pans. Will be calling on you again soon!

I received a set of Sitram pots, pans, and lids when I got married 28 years ago. I cook a lot, and I have reached for these pieces first every time. I got rid of the husband but kept my Sitram set! I recommend this high-quality cookware bar none..
