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

  • K-R is a KO for the 3.5L
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The 3.5L pressure cooker is a joy to use, being smaller and lighter than all others. I like how the smaller diameter allows for other pots to nearby on the burner while still centered over the flame. The quality is excellent, especially the steel's hardness and shininess. The quality control is excellent. Mine was perfect, and I can find flaws, expertly. The 3.5 liter size is perfect for quick and easy throw-togethers for a single person or two where you are not interested in leftovers. One caveat, if you are cooking rice using the 3 min cook-time and 7 min natural release, you'll want to adjust that. Use 5 min cook time and then 5 min natural release if using rice quantities of 1 cup or less. It's also better to weigh your water and rice using the 3: 2 ratio. Three parts water to 2 parts rice by weight. It's perfect. If you use a volume measure like cups (1/2 or 3/4) to measure your rice then you will get wetter rice. Not so good. Rice aside, this is as small as you need to go with a pressure cooker. It's just right for soups for two or just you. It comes to pressure quickly and releases naturally, rather quickly, given its lower air heat mass. (It's smaller). But really, it's not just a pressure cooker but a great pot as well. Get a clear lid for it that's 20 cm across the middle (diameter) to watch your food cook. I have the 12L, 5L, 2.5L, 3.5L, and two Fisslers. This smaller size makes it unique and downright adorable. The K-R cookers are simply the best! Get one!

  • Excellent quality
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I had an aluminum pressure cooker for years when my four sons were growing and used it for making quick meals. When we moved suddenly, I gave it to a charitable organization, hoping to replace it with a better quality product. It was a number of years before we were able to afford a higher quality pressure cooker, but I'm very happy to have waited to be able to afford the Kuhn Rikon. It is of high quality, is easier to use than the old "jigger" model, and makes excellent-tasting soups, which we really enjoy during the cold winters in upper Michigan. We have also purchased them for our daughters-in-law, who find it time-saving, and enjoy using theirs as well. Thank you for creating such a quality-made product and making it available in America.

  • Excellent Quality
    By on - Verified Buyer
    This is the second pressure cooker I've ordered. The first was for me and the second one for a gift. I've had pressure cookers over the years and nothing compares to the Kuhn Rikon Cooker. I ordered the larger size the 7.4 quart. Makes the best mashed potatoes. Cook them in the pot, blanch them, throw them in your mixer, and they make the best mashed potatoes. We no longer bake sweet potatoes. We put in them in the pot and they are cooked evenly. This pot as many uses.

    I love quality items and it's refreshing to actually get what you pay for in todays world. The 5.3L is a perfect size for daily use and the quality is evident. I highly recommend the Kuhn Rikon brand, you actually get what you pay for, a great pressure cooker.

    I've been making white beans and smoked ham for years, but the batch in the Kuhn Rikon Duromatic was the best I've ever made. I was pleasantly surprised at how much texture and shape the beans retained. I was made a pork roast and was surprised at how juicy and flavorful it was. I can't wait to make another dinner with this cooker.

  • Devoted to excellence: Kuhn Rikon customer for life
    By on - Verified Buyer
    It took only twenty minutes from the time that I opened 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.
