This beautiful Italian pressure cooker seals in flavour and nutrients, and will save you lots of time in meal preparation. The body is strong, corrosion resistant 18/10 stainless steel; a super thick aluminum base transfers heat quickly and efficiently. The handle lock prevents opening while under pressure; a pressure release valve and a safety plug further ensure safe operation. Can be used on all cooking surfaces, including induction. And of course, can be used without the lid as an ordinary pot. Easy to clean and dishwasher safe. While it has been used, the condition is like new.
