“The whole pressure cooker was easy to carry”

Written on: 06/01/2021 by DimitriAri (7 reviews written)

The whole pressure cooker was easy to carry thanks to the extra lug handle. It's effortless to clean as the main pan is dishwasher safe and any dirt traps are easy to access. Quiet - this product has been scientifically assessed and found to be quieter than most in this category… Read Full Review

“Didn't work”

Written on: 19/11/2017 by Towerpressure (1 review written)

I bought two of these fairly recently, one worked (a bit hit and miss though), one didn't. I gave the working one to my daughter and use the other as a handy large ordinary pan now. So I dumbly got another on offer making it cheap, have gone to use it from brand new and steam is leaking everywhere, no pressure. I have used Prestige ones in the past with no problem so I don't think it's me. I'll have to take a good look at it. I think you should go for another brand… Read Full Review

“10 MINUTES”

Written on: 18/11/2015 by secureman (6 reviews written)

Bought the new digital Tower pressure cooker £149.99. When I got home, washed it all out and prepared a stew. Placed stew in pressure cooker and set for stew (automatic timing set for 35 mins). Turned cooker on (electric). After 10 minutes cooker started beeping and after checking manual for error code found that electrics had failed. Phoned Tower and was told item faulty, return to supplier. When I washed it out to return I found a nut in lid rolling about unsecured which should have been… Read Full Review

“waste of money”

Written on: 01/04/2014 by shaharazaan (1 review written)

I recently bought 2 tower pressure cookers from Makro wholesale they cost £49.99 each and within 2 months both are broken. I thought you get what you pay for so even though i saw cheaper pressure cooker's i opted for a well known name brand.......what a big disappointment i may as well have gone to my local market and bought a cheaper version's of the same product. I am going to return them both and will never buy any products' from your company again… Read Full Review

“Good Price but....”

Written on: 20/03/2012 by mazone (1 review written)

I wanted a large pressure cooker and this was plenty big enough at 7 litres. I loved the way the gauge spun around to tell you it was at the right pressure. The price was great too at Argos. However the plastic lever on the handle that allows you to open the lid has broken after only 4 months. Argos didn't argue, they offered me a replacement or my money back. I took the money and I'm now researching which model to try next. I may well go back to my original Prestige Hi-dome which had given me… Read Full Review

“A TALE OF WOE”

Written on: 13/01/2012

I envied my Boyfriend's wonderful ancient pressure cooker. He bought me a TowerSpeedFour for Christmas...I am SO disappointed (and embarrassed) by its DISMAL performance. The bottom is distorted - useless on my electric hob... ALSO lid-lock takes fifteen minutes to close. MY STEAMER IS FASTER. So much for the anticipated saving of time or energy. … Read Full Review

“Tower Rapid Chef 6Ltr”

Written on: 22/12/2011 by Cat7 (1 review written)

I love my pressure cooker and have now had it for over a decade. Thanks to a review on this website I was able to replace the gasket for the best price from the manufacturer.This is the first time I have had to replace the gasket and the pressure cooker still looks like new even after considerable use!! It has to be value for money! I would highly recommend a tower pressure cooker… Read Full Review

“Lid Lock Blues”

Written on: 28/08/2011

Price was right - product was available - previous model was stolen from the kitchen by a friend of my wife at our party. Third outing the Manual Lid Lock snapped off its weak plastic stud mounting and yes, you've guessed it, spares are not available! The P&P costs of returning it to the retailer aren't worth it so - anyone want a deep stockpot thats rather heavy? Collect only… Read Full Review

Written on: 28/12/2010

I have used my Tower Family pressure cooker for the last 16 years and have only had to replace the rubber air vent and the rubber gasket once in all that time. I now need to replace the rubber gasket as mistakingly put it through the dishwasher and it doesn't fit too well now. I use my cooker to make jam , large pots of casserole and to cook gammon joints. It is so easy to use, and the resulting gammon joint just falls apart and is so tender it is wonderful. Cheaper cuts of meat that need to be… Read Full Review

My husband purchased a Tower speed 4 pressure cooker model no 4374 from Argos in Maidstone on 22/9/2010. Unfortunately after two use this product blew up causing first and second degree burns to my daughters face, chest and right arm. She will be scared. I would not rate this model.

Written on: 03/11/2010 by karlosmalin (6 reviews written)

Unfortunately, this is a cheap pressure cooker and it does show. It takes ages to come to pressure, the valve spitting and hissing for what seems an age before it rises and locks in. It does cook well after that though, but I just wouldn't recommend it to a friend as there are far better cookers out there that are worth the extra pounds… Read Full Review

The 4355 looked good and controls are very easy to use, but base buckled on first use. May be OK with gas but useless on electric cooker, Aga or similar. Intend to try to press base back into shape but have replaced with a Prestige… Read Full Review

Written on: 22/03/2010

Good value cooker and quite economical to run as steam loss can be controlled using a simple red indicator which indicates optimum pressure.

I have been using this cooker for over 3 years now and ran out of fusible discs. Argos was selling these for £8 including packaging and other providers were similarly priced.

Finally found the manufacturers site (Russell Hobbs), who sell 3 discs for £1.86 incl vat and post.

Written on: 10/03/2010 by Umber (1 review written)

We sattred using this new pressure cooker a couple of months ago, when an earlier model pressure cooker gave up.

The Tower is not too good. The lid can jam - it can be palced onto the base ain theew rong position.
The gasket leaks, and insists on leaking despite our attempts to clean all meeting parts throughly. The leakage is around the locking area.

Apart from thje above, the cooker works OK… Read Full Review

Mike Jesson's Response to Umber's Review

Written on: 05/04/2010

I also had the problem of pressure leaking from under the handle but managed to fix it. There is a rubber ring on the pressure indicator that sometimes ends up in the groove at the end of the valve. If you leave it there, it cannot build pressure. Push it up out of the groove so it seats immediately next to the lid.....fixed!!
<br/>I think the groove is a safety feature but it only takes a wash to push it into the groove. I think it is a serious design failure. Mike

Written on: 19/09/2009 by jem77fp (3 reviews written)

I have used pressure cookers for over 30 years and this Tower Pressure Cooker is without doubt the worst I have ever encountered. Manual states that when weight rotates and vents steam, the correct temperature has been reached. Under no circumstances will the weight rotate. The manual states that 0.5 pints of water gives 15 minutes cooking time. The cooker boiled dry in less than 10 minutes with 2 pints of water. Steam and water leak from every joint around the handle. The gasket around the… Read Full Review

I bought this non stick version to replace an old but fantastic Tower pressure cooker. Plastic slider control to open lid broke in first week. Non stick interior lasted just a few uses and could not take the heat so literally burnt off. Can'tfind replacement slider anywhere. Can't locate Tower directlyto ask them for one either… Read Full Review

Written on: 05/11/2008

I have the Tower Rapide Rapid Chef 6 litre stainless steel model no 4355. Unlike other pressure cookers I've previously owned, this one has not suffered any pitting of the interior surface, nor has there been any distortion of the base (which makes it difficult to use on a solid hob ring). That's probably because this one is stainless steel and not aluminium.

Spare rubber gaskets are most cheaply obtained from the manufacturers in my experience. Phone number is 0161 947 3111… Read Full Review
