Fissler Vitaquick 8.5 Quart Pressure Cooker: Advantages & Disadvantages

If your grandmother was a grand cook like everyone else’s, you are probably familiar with the traditional pressure cooker. The aromas and smells that disperse throughout the home would make your salivary glands work overtime. If you are looking to recapture that precious moment in time, then you should consider purchasing a Fissler Vitaquick 8.5 pressure cooker FIS5859.

Your Cooking Preference

The Fissler Vitaquick pressure cooker will take the place of your stove-top pot and your slow cooker, because it offers two settings, which offer a gentle or speedy cooking. The easy readable blue indicator rod is perfect for senior citizens or individuals with mild vision loss. You will never have to second guess the setting or Fissler’s promise to provide high quality products to their customers.

Precise Safety Features

Fissler has definitely taken safety into consideration, when they developed and designed this pressure cooker. This highly reputable company knows how dangerous it can be to steam with a high pressure cooker that reaches extremely hot temperatures. The perfected, auto locking handle prevents the cooking process to begin, unless the handle is securely locked into place. The locking mechanism’s indicator light will switch from red to green automatically, when the lid is in its correct position. This is a huge upgrade from the traditional pressure cooker, since grandma had to take her chances, when it came to locking the lid. The pressure relief valve is also a great addition, because it will allow you to release the pressure, before removing the lid.

Extreme Durability

The exterior portion of the pressure cooker is constructed out of 18/10 stainless steel, which offers an increased lifespan and extreme durability. Fissler always stamps their name on their products and this one is no different. This cooker does not need to be stored away in your cupboards because its fancy design will offer a wonderful addition to your existing small appliances. The interior portion of the pressure cooker is constructed out of aluminum, which is very durable, as well.

No Extras Required

This pressure cooker was designed for the busy housewife/husband and the hardworking person that is limited on time for preparing and cooking meals. The clearly displayed and easily readable volume markings will allow you to fill the pot with confidence, without the worry of overfilling, which could be very unsafe. The “min” shows you exactly how much water is required in order to produce steam, while the “max” alerts to how much food and water can be added to the pot. Make sure that you follow these instructions to the tee to prevent mishaps.

Extremely Lightweight

You will be totally shocked, when you receive your new pressure, since its very lightweight. It weighs 5 pounds, which is very unusual, when compared to the traditional pressure cooker. Do not let the lightweight fool you. Its esteemed durability is backed up by Fissler with a 3-year warranty.


Although this is a wonderful product it is not perfect, but I still highly recommended. It is imperative that you read all customer reviews, prior to purchasing this item. Many customers have complained about the defective euromatic valve, which will cost around $15 to replace. This can easily be purchased at the Fissler website very easily. Although, this is definitely an inconvenience, it does not anything away from the quality of the product.

My Assessment

I was definitely skeptical, when I saw the huge price tag of $279 for the Fissler Vitaquick, but I must say it is one of the best purchases that I ever made. I was fortunate that I did not experience a problem with the euromatic valve like others. I can now provide my family with a healthy, home cooked meal in a matter of a few short hours.
