    Amazon just jogged my memory. Besides seeing Fagor in Germany I also picked up brochures for cookware made by Fissler. Any comments on their pressure cookers. They were shiny and pretty. :-)

    I've got a Fagor, as long as you follow the instructions, it is pretty good for the price.

    I've been in this same boat for a while. Never used one but have wanted to try one for a few years now. I saw a Jacques Pepin cooking show once where he used a pressure cooker to make a curry in 20 minutes, and I have never forgotten it. The mad scientists at Modernist Cuisine recommend the Kuhn Rikon Duromatic. I just made risotto the other night and in the above link they say you can make a stir-free risotto in 5 minutes. With another kid on the way, this tool might be my savior.

    Back when I did my "OCD" research two names were at the top of the quality list....KR and Magefesa. Then and now seems like KR is about 50% more expensive. I went with the Magefesa (actually the pressure fryer), but I would like to have an additional smaller unit or pressure frypan.

    Just saw this. Fissler is considered high quality in Germany. My Mom has been using Fissler pressure cookers for as long as I can remember and never had any issues.

    Thanks for that Stefan. Their stuff looked awesome when I was at a mall in Dusseldorf.

    My wife told me the other night, I'm not going to tell you what you are getting for Christmas but it begins with "pressure". Hmmm, this Christmas is going to be as big a surprise as last year when a Vitamix box was delivered to the house.
