Kuhn Rikon Family Cooker

Quiet, super-safe, extremely attractive, and "everyday practical"... If you don't associate those words with pressure cookers, it can only be because you haven't experienced Kuhn Rikon Duromatic... and you're in for a treat!

Large, wide base (11") Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cookers for big jobs. The Kuhn Rikon 12Q Family Cooker will handle a whole turkey, making dinner for ten to twenty. Steaming trivet included with each. These are two of our most popular models.

Available in 8 Quart (Model #30331) and 12 Quart (Model #30333).

  • “Your customer service is the best. All companies could learn from you and your employees. Very courteous and prompt.”

    – Stacey, SD

Cooking with a Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cooker reduces cooking times (and energy costs!) by two thirds. It makes tough foods tender, and enhances flavor blending for tastier dishes. Kuhn Rikon Duromatic also preserves the vivid colors of your vegetables—as well as more of their nutrients. But in the past, pressure cookers have been big, noisy monstrosities... and more than a little scary!

Crafted in Switzerland of 18-10 Surgical Stainless with the attention to detail for which the Swiss are world renowned, Kuhn Rikon Duromatic Cookware will revolutionize your perceptions of pressure cooking. With super quiet valves, clad construction, and 5 unique (and truly effective) safety systems, Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cookware is changing the way cooking is done.

The Kuhn Rikon Duromatic line features fry pans that pressure cook and braise, with innovative stick resistant stainless surfaces, and interchangeable glass lids. Every Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cooker base features a thick layer of pure aluminum sandwiched between stainless steel for even browning and fast warm up.

Versatile Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cookers are sized for any task, from singles and small families to the professional cook. And Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cookers work on all cooking surfaces, including induction cooktops.

Pleasant Hill Grain is proud to offer Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cookware. If we can help you with more information, please e-mail or call us toll free at the number below. We're here to help!

  • “The Family Cooker is an extremely well-made and sturdy pot. I've cooked racks of ribs, and seen beans cooked in it. My friend canned in hers with no trouble whatsoever. It's got to be my favorite pot. I highly recommend it.”

    Simple design, easy to clean, safe to use, and with a large capacity for copious leafy greens such as Kale. Essential for a family and practical for couples who entertain and have dinner guests.

  • I love this pressure cooker
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I've had the smaller Duramatic pressure cooker for a while and love it for small meals, but I needed the larger one for making bone broths. This fits large bones perfectly! I use it over a natural gas burner outside (to keep the heat out of my house). It is an extremely well-made and sturdy pot. I've cooked racks of ribs, and seen beans cooked in it. My friend canned in hers with no trouble whatsoever. It's got to be my favorite pot. I highly recommend it.

  • Amazing!

    Technology has improved in cooking equipment as everywhere else. My eighty year old pressure cooker blew up last month. We weren't in the kitchen. When I bought this one and read the times selected, I scoffed. But I followed them anyway. Wow! And again I say, WOW!

    I have a B/R/K that I thought was the best PC made until I purchased the 12 qt KR from Pleasant Hill Grain. There is no comparison. I've never cooked with such a quality item in my life. Everything I've made since receiving the cooker has come out perfect.

    I anguished over the size and am glad I went with the 12 qt. It comes up to pressure unbelievably fast. I don't dare leave the room while waiting as it will come up to pressure almost immediately, even with a mere 1 cup of water in it. The cooker is unbelievably fast.

    I highly recommend this 12 qt cooker, it's worth every penny. Be sure to purchase it from Pleasant Hill Grain. Their customer service is the best I've ever experienced!

  • My best pressure cooker yet
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I have been using Kuhn Rikon since 1969. This is my third one and the other two are still in good shape and have had no problem, aside
    from having to change the rubber gasket once or twice. The reason for my purchase of a 12 liter Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker was that I needed
    a larger one, as I started canning. I love it, just as much and my other two. Bravo Kuhn Rikon!
