good quality for a good price

After my almost 50 year old pressure cooker gave up I decided to buy a new one from Argos. I am very pleased with it. Easy to use and easy to clean. All round great performance.

Good, solid pressure cooker

I've been using the cooker quite often and I find it very well built, the materials look durable enough and it does what it says on the box. The safety lock works pretty well, preventing you from opening the cooker while pressure is high.

Very good buy

I have used pressure cookers for years, some better than others, and I must say this one feels very safe. Good size for 3 or 4 meals. The explanations are clear and good. the only downside is that the base of the pan isn't very thick and browning food as you would do in a heavy-based pan could turn to disaster. The upside is that the pan is very light to carry and handle. I am very pleased with it.

About the ceramic hob compatibility

I have seen the brief online product description where it says suitable for electric hob... however: One Argos customer found on reading the instructions of same product type, that this was NOT ceramic hob friendly: Review 12 for Tower 7 Litre Aluminium Speed Pressure Cooker. 15 March 2011 Not good for ceramic cooker By BigH from Kent "I had to return this product because on reading the instructions, it became clear that it was not suited to a ceramic surface cooker"

Thank you for your question.

I can confirm that electric hobs are different to ceramic-glass hobs, and that the Tower 4 Litre Aluminium Pressure Cooker is not suitable for ceramic-glass hobs.

Thank you for using Argos Q&A.
