Cuisinart is a high-end brand that makes a wide array of small kitchen appliances. Their pressure cookers come two basic design options. The first is a standard pressure cooker with a lid that clips in place over an aluminum base. They can be found in six or eight quart capacities and cook faster than many traditional methods. This first type doesn't have a digital display or push-button operation. Cuisinart has also come out with several electric pressure cookers that do far more than pressure cook. The second type has a digital display and push-button controls and can brown, simmer, saute, and warm food until it’s ready to be eaten. They perform many of the same functions as far more expensive models made by other manufacturers.
