It is not the largest pressure cooker on the market but is big enough for most people’s needs and is ideal for those who have limited space. In addition, there is only one pressure setting of 15lb which may be limiting for some people with more varied requirements.
The presto 01370 pressure cooker works well but some people may find it difficult to open and secure the lid. Closing the lid is more difficult than opening it but obviously for safety reasons it is important to get this right.

Controlling the pressure can take a little practice although you do get the usual ‘whistle’ to let you know things are hotting up and with a little patience you will get the hang of it quite easily.
This pressure cooker is modern and does not have some of the features that other pressure cookers might offer. However, selling for around $70 makes this an inexpensive yet high quality pressure cooker that is well worth the money and does everything that most people will be looking for in a pressure cooker.
