  • “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.”

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.

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 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
