    This is the site that I bought mine from. They're selling the Hotel Style braiser for $420. OUCH. Between you and me, I just don't think you'll get your ROI on this pot for a long long time. The 5QT is $270? Like I said I do stock in it all the time, can make at least 3 QTS per load too.

    Thanks MB! I wasn't seeing much reason to spend the extra $100 on the other unit...but wondered if I was just missing something.

    I usually shop Amazon to find products/reviews/etc...then I use froogle (google shopping) to find the best price...which is almost always through an amazon business partner. e.g. the 8 qt pot is available for only $50 more than the 5qt...which seems like $50 well spent.

    I guess the induction unit works with this stainless PC b/c of the embedded disk in the bottom?

    Zwiefel, $50 more for a 8QT might be a good option for sure. Definately works with the KR pressure cooker.

    So you're going to get the KR and Dorkfoods SV PID.

    GOOD GOOD

    What about the chamber Vac?

    Yup, also the Duxtop induction unit, and Modernist Cuisine at home. You're going to cost me even more money than EdipisReks did!

    Chamber vac will have to wait a bit. as will any upgrade on the Sous vide rig.

    I have been thinking about an induction burner maybe I'll grab this one. I am not really sure why I want it other than for gatherings here at home when I need another burner. Am I missing any uses? Besides I just want to tinker with an induction cooktop.

    Rah, I've had my induction top for almost two years now. Use it nearly everyday:

    Pro's:
    1. Heats up water twice as fast as traditioal high heat gas burners
    2.) Only heats up the pan. Very nice when cooking indoors in the summer
    3.) Allows you to set it and forget it. Has a timer that shust the unit off
    4.)Really very energy efficent
    6.) Can get you pan to screaming high heats
    5.) Very portable

    Cons:
    1. Does not replace a proper gas stove. Inducation is not as adjustable, usually only has ten settings. But its like a microwave, its either on or off
    2. The actual burner size is small, usually around 6" So its not great for large pans
    3.) Must have magnetic pans. Anything Alumnium like calphalon won't work.

    In addition to the points MB made, they are highly portable. I will find a lot of use for it in my RV....and out of the RV too....saves on propane too!

    How much does it drain your RV battery/generator?

    I only camp at places with full hookups...so....zero! Let's me more fully use what I'm already paying for, while generating about 1/3 as much heat that my AC will have to fight. 100% win/win.

    Thank you for the timely delivery Amazon!

    Just in time for the weekend!



    Dammit...I thought this thing had an 11. brought the PC up to full pressure in 5 minutes though...not too shabby...about the same as my 30k burners...but with a lot less heat pumped into my kitchen.

    Going to try a "quick" ribeye in this tonight, then sear in cast iron on the induction unit. Serve with some baby veggies from the PC...and a little chimichurri sauce.
