An old Prestige hi-dome with a simple drop-on needle valve weight set. You sometimes find them at jumble sales etc with the weights missing, but those used to be available as spares.

Last I looked, they don't seem to make them like that any more. Lots of superfluous [censored] (timed automatic venting?) on them which makes them hard or impossible to clean.

Have you considered the instapot? Many have ditched their pressure cookers and crockpots for this device that does both duties.

I have a 6qt instantpot it works quite well.

very safe.

https://www.target.com/p/instant-pot-7-in-1-pressure-cooker-6-qt-stainless-steel/-/A-50608360

IIRC I paid around 80$ on sale.. quite a few good sales recently too.

I havent retired the crockpot yet.. but the pot roast comes out in 45min like 8-12 hours in the crockpot.

I was at a get together a few weeks back where they cooked everything from ribs to potatoes and vegetables in the InstaPot. The food was great and it cooked quickly. They seem very popular right now on Amazon.

I have an older Prestige from years ago that works just as good today, as the day I received it for a gift from my Mother on Christmas about 15 years ago. Its the biggest one they made at the time. Perfect for me & the Family for when I make stews/soups etc....

What's your budget? If you want cheap pressure cooker, here it is (what I have). It's aluminum but after a few times it builds a nice layer of aluminum oxide.

Whacha going to cook in it?

Wife got one instapot. Latest "thing" I bet one in 2 "mercuns got one.

But what do you need to cook so FAST?

Pork Butt?

I though high temp destroys vitamins.

Tell me something good about this "fad".

Depending on what you're doing with it, I've got an All-American 941 I use for canning. She's a monster, but you can cook almost anything in it...there are smaller ones as well.

It's only got one rubber part - the over-pressure release.
