Buying this pressure cooker was my first foray into pressure cooking, and I was a little uncertain. But I'm convinced now. I eat a plant-based diet, which includes a lot of beans, and I was tired of eating overly salty canned beans or cooking my own in hours on the stove (even after pre-soaking). This pressure cooker is easy to use and clean, and it cooks presoaked beans in under 15 minutes. It takes about 3-7 minutes to come up to pressure first. After that happens, you lower the heat and set a timer and then you can ignore it until the timer goes off. I watched the video that comes with it before trying to cook anything, and that was really helpful. If you've been waiting to make the jump into pressure cooking, don't hesitate to try this cooker -- it'll make a convert of you, too. (The 6-quart size is good for 2-4 people.)
