Bottom Line
Pros
Cons

Stovetop pressure cookers use steam to create pressure to cook food and can create food that is moist and full of flavor. Because pressure cookers use steam to cook, it is important to add liquid whenever you are using it, with more liquid required the longer you are cooking your dish. Most are made of stainless steel and have a lid that locks to ensure the right amount of pressure for cooking. Sizes will vary, but most are somewhere between eight and ten quarts. It is always important to inspect your pressure cooker before each use to make sure there are no cracks or damage.
