    Almost five stars

    I like almost everything about this pressure cooker-- it is so nice to be able to whip up homemade soup from whatever I have lying around and have it ready really quickly. So I took one star off because it might have a slight problem with tomato sauce leaching from the aluminum. I'm not sure if it really did that or I am just tasting in because I read it was possible. I still like the slow cooker for some things (like a pot-roast for tomorrow), but for quick delicious meals this thing is tops. If you are trying to decide between this and an electric one I suggest this-- it won't breakdown and once you get used to the pressure part it is really easy to use.

    This recipient was disappointed to read in the directions that this product can not be used on their flat top cooking range. After hearing this I reviewed the product description about this limitation, no mention that I can find. When I looked for alternates none of the other pressure cookers confirmed if they are suitable for flat surface either. Suggest Best Buy update their product description to document suitability for cooking surfaces. Would recommend to friends who have the right type of stove!

    I bought this on clearance and finally got around to using it. I noticed the occasional leak from around the seal area, with water dripping down onto the stove. This was while it was on medium heat. I never used a Mirro pressure cooker before. I noticed this one had a plastic seal instead of the normal rubber gasket I'm used to on other brands. Otherwise, it seem t work fine. I do not see it as enough of a problem to warrant a return, but I would not suggest someone who is not comfortable with this issue, try this product.

    Always been afraid of cooking with these. Tried it out for first time after getting tired of long cook time for cooking oxtail a and other meat dishes. This brand received rave reviews, and did not disappoint. Cooking guide helped with eliminating the guessing time for first timers like myself, and it worked like a charm. I'm now a believe and love it!!!

    This is a nice size and great price so I gave it as a gift to someone who needed a pressure cooker. Unfortunately the description did not state that this one is not for use on flat cook surface ranges. Was glad there was a Best Buy store local to the recipient. They accepted the return immediately, much easier than dealing with on line store returns. Recommend for those with gas or electric coils on their stove.

    Convenient & Easy

    I have been using pressure cooker since long time but my old presuree cooker got bad so I got this new one. It's great however I wish the pressure cooker will whistle loud so as to let me know when the food is cooked. Normally the other pressure cooker whistles loudly which is a indication of the food cooked but for this one you have to monitor the time which is a little inconvenient. Other than than i like it as it can cook a lot at a time.

    After first use to boil water for test, there are 2 inches high black ink on the bottom circle, couldn't wash away, I don't know why ? Even it doesn't influence to use, the dark color is real bother me. I thought probably because this is a cheaper pressure cooker.

    Don't buy if you have a flat top stove!

    Can't review because I couldn't use it on my stove. Bought 3 because they were such a great price - and now I know why. Of all my friends and family only 3 have stoves that are not flat top. Giving them to a charity because I don't want to hassle with the return. Very disappointed. I'm sure they work great if you have a gas stove or older electric stove top.

    The size, shape and weight are comparable to the ones I have used in the past. I have used this type pressure cooker for 40 years. It's sturdiness is obvious. I would wager that it will exceed my expectations. I will write a comment after I use it.

    If you have never used a pressure cooker, I think it is time for you to try. Also, remember never place in dish washer because it will take the shine off of your polish. But, even so it still works great. With or without a shine.

    I initially was going to get one of the fancy electric ones but I rolled the dice on this since it was so reasonable. The cooker does exactly what it is intended to do w/o bells and whistle (actually is does whistle :-)

    I bought this pressure cooker a few month ago, but didn't use it at all, It's light and feels cheaper made. I am worrying whether it's bad for health if I use it for cooking.

    I can't really give a fair review yet. I haven't figured out how to adjust the temperature so that most of the liquid stays in the pan and doesn't come out as steam or completely loses the pressure.

    Only 4 stars was for lack of rack, but I had one from the last cooker. The cooker has a very nice finish inside and out. Price was reasonable.

    Easy to use and it cooks well. No pressure leaks. Thrilled with it . Make sure to follow safety instructions as it is under very high pressure and can be dangerous.
