Kuhn Rikon Dealer of the Year award

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.

See Kuhn Rikon Duromatic Pressure Cooker FAQ.

Gaskets should be replaced periodically, as they will harden over time and stop working — which will cause seal loss, and your cooker won't work. It's easiest to order a spare gasket available here with your cooker, so you'll have a backup. (They can also be nicked or damaged by a stove burner, etc.) Tip: When not in use, gaskets can be removed from cooker lid to maintain proper shape for longest life.

Can you use a Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker for canning? The answer is here!

With any pressure cooker, be sure to add sufficient water. Complete evaporation will spoil your food and damage the cooker. If you want, you can keep food suspended above the water by using a trivet.

Plus... More nutrition & better color and flavor are retained... And far less energy is consumed in the process!

Dramatic differences in cooking times with Kuhn Rikon!

 Food Type Cooking Time Traditional Time
Artichokes 8-12 minutes 40-45 minutes
Black beans 10-12 minutes 2-1/2 hours
Whole chicken 5 minutes/lb. 15 minutes/lb.
White rice 5 minutes 15-25 minutes
Brown rice 20-22 minutes 45 minutes
Whole new potatoes 5-6 minutes 25-30 minutes
Beef stew 15-20 minutes 2 hours

    I am using this pressure cooker for the first time. A friend of mine recommended it and I thought to give it a try, since my current pressure cooker was old and I wanted a replacement. The cooker arrived on time and included an instruction manual. It's only been a week that I have tried cooking in it. It's a little heavy so you can be sure it's well built. The whistle blow isn't loud and annoying as with some of the other pressure cookers.

    Will write more after few months of its usage. So far it's been good.

    I've been using Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers for years, in fact since I can remember, my family has had one; it's an essential pot for healthy cooking. Best of all, I found it at Pleasant Hill Grain, a company I can highly recommend! Transaction and shipping was very efficient, and the company carries highest quality items. I hope you too look into the items they carry!
