Kuhn Rikon Duo Set

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 big treat!

This set gives you the versatility of 2 pressure cookers for the price of one! A perfect starter set for the new bride or the seasoned cook. This six-piece set of pressure cookware includes the best-selling 5 quart Duromatic cooker body with smooth stainless interior, a 2 quart pressure fry pan body with smooth stainless interior, with (one each) pressure and glass lids to fit both. Also included are the 22 cm steaming trivet and the Quick Cuisine cookbook. Both the 5 and 2 quart can be used for conventional cooking (with the glass lid) as well as pressure cooking. The Duo Set is Kuhn Rikon Model #1588.

  • “It took only twenty minutes from opening the package, to cooking with my new Kuhn Rikon. When my other brand of pressure cooker died much too soon, I replaced it with KR pressure cooker. I love the ease of cleaning and maintenance. I'm a Kuhn Rikon customer for life.”

    – Nan C., KY

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!

  • My go-to pan
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Love these pans, and the book that came with them. It's so fast and easy to make a meal, and at the same time setting up for the bone broth leftovers that I use to quickly make up soup for lunches. I'll be adding more Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers to my kitchen soon.

  • Top notch pressure cooker
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I was reluctant to spend so much for a pressure cooker, but I'm very pleased I got this high quality product. It's easy to use and quick to clean, and will undoubtedly last many years. The cookbooks that came with it provide all the help I need for everyday cooking. The 5L size is perfect for our two person household, but I can still prepare enough for guests.
