Don't understand what the fuss is in some of the reviews. I bought one of these to replace an old aluminium one to use on an induction hob and it has worked exactly as expected. The quality, fit and finish on mine is good and the quick pressure release system works a treat. I find it a very stylish piece of cooking equipment. If you have a problem with the wire trivet all you need to do is to bend it apart a little and the basket is as stable as it needs to be. Separators are exactly that -… Read Full Review

Bought this Pressure Cooker as it is one of only a few that is recomended for ceramic hobs. Unpacked it and was surprised at how cheaply made some of the parts are, the trivet is a bent bit of wire that makes the basket unstable, the rivets holding the handles on are already starting to rust inside the cooker, the basket handles do not fit properly, the seperstors in the basket are so flimsy they bent the first time I used them and it is a good job I saved the baskets from my old presure cooker… Read Full Review

Bought one of these yesterday unpacked it and was realy surprised at how cheap some of the parts are, the trivet is a bit of bent wire which makes the basket unstable, the rivets holding the handles on are already starting to rust, the seperators in the basket are so flimsy I've bent them already and the basket handles don't fit properly. Also it is a good job I kept the baskets from my old presure cooker as this cooker only comes with one making it impossible to cook enough for the whole… Read Full Review

bought this a few weeks ago the 6litre stainless steel one. have had no problems bringing it to pressure and cooks meat perfectly in a 1/3 of the time. also the stainless steel pot allows you to brown the meat in the same pot keeping all the flavour in the one pot. at £49 it was the cheapest i could find and think it is very easy to use and great value for money… Read Full Review

I have replaced all the seals. The plastic grey moulding under the pressue cooker weight.
It comes up to pressure when I cook potatoes but will not come up to pressure when cooking tomato based food. Heap of rubbish.
As the Prestige Smartplus main advertising is for cooking currys it's a waste of space in my kitchen… Read Full Review

The Prestige Smartplus Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker 6lt does exactly as it says on the box, very easy to use, good instructions, really good cookery book. Who ever said that these models are rubbish is totally wrong.
When using a pressure cooker you always need to grease the gasket with cooking oil- vegetable oil is best before each use and especially if it is new or when using a new gasket for the first time. This information was given to me from a 1978 pressure cooker cook book owned by… Read Full Review

We were forced to go the stainless steel route due to old aluminium model not working on new induction hob. No problems with the unit having used for the past year. We replace the main seal on a regular basis and pay around £4 for the spare in local store… Read Full Review

We imported this unit in to NZ some time ago and the whole lot was sold to a supermarket chain. We have had no complaints about the cooker. No phone calls or inquiries about problems… Read Full Review

Very poor build quality. Leaks and will not achieve full pressure. Returned for refund… Read Full Review

Very confusing trying to obtain a genuine all-stainless steel type. Even Tesco Direct show a picture of one I could swear was all-SS, but it isn't! Lots of other suppliers don't even know either.
The current fad for using a fusible metal safety valve isn't to my favour, I'll just hope Prestige (Meyer Group) maintain their normally decent spares support. I've only resisted 10/10 because I've yet to see how long it lasts!… Read Full Review
