Kuhn Rikon Turn-Top 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 big treat!

These new Kuhn Rikon "Turn Top" pressure cookers have a unique pressure relief valve. With most Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers, pressure can be released by pressing and holding the stem down at the peak of the lid. The valve at the top of these "Turn Top" models can be twisted, then let go of, to release pressure until the valve is turned back to the normal closed position.

The 5 quart will do 3.5 lb. chicken/4 lb. roast, while the 7 quart Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cooker handles large roasts, canning, corn on the cob, or dinner for 8 to 10. Stainless steaming trivet included with all sizes.

The Turn Top line is our most popular Kuhn Rikon line, and the 5 quart is the most popular size of all, followed closely by the 7 quart.

Available in 3.5 Qt. "Turn Top" (Model #3914), 5.0 Qt. "Turn Top" (Model #3916), and 7.0 Qt. "Turn Top" (Model #3918).

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
Pasta sauce 20 minutes 1-1/2 hours

  • “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!”

  • How did I cook so long without it!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I remember my mom cooking with a pressure cooker and aside from being somewhat fearful of it, I recall the wonderful foods. After seeing an infomercial for an electric pressure cooker and doing some of my own research, I bought this one and so far, I love it. Easy to use and makes a wonderful meal in a fraction of the time it would by cooking it in the oven or a slow cooker/crock pot.

  • Very nice
    By on - Verified Buyer
    It's a high quality cooker and is uncomplicated to operate. I have a gas stove so I opted for the metal plate that distributes the heat. I'm very satisfied with it.

  • So superior
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Last month I went a little crazy and purchased three Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers: The Duo set and the 3.5L. I swear, they have changed our lives. They're so different from my old Presto and Fagor. They’re quiet, and being sized right for the contents—which is easy with three different sizes—they come to pressure quickly, and generally take even less time than the recipes call for. I appreciate Pleasant Hill Grain so much because I know I can trust you, your products and your service.

  • Our second
    By on - Verified Buyer
    It is so nice to get such fast, friendly service. My husband and I are headed to Africa soon and I didn't want to leave without my Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker! I have the 7 liter, but I wanted one just a little smaller. I was getting worried that I wouldn't get it in time. Not a problem with Pleasant Hill Grain! Thanks again... I will pass along your praises!

  • Kuhn Rikon and PHG: The Best
    By on - Verified Buyer
    As I researched the best pressure cooker, the Internet led me to Pleasant Hill Grain and the Kuhn Rikon brand. I must say that all the information was accurate about both you and Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers! Your representative was so helpful in troubleshooting for us when we had a little problem. I appreciated her pleasant demeanor, follow through, and commitment to helping me. We're delighted.
