Crofton Pressure cooker - your opinions/reviews?

6 posts in this topic

We just had an Aldi's open up near my workplace, and they are advertising a Crofton SS Pressure cooker for under $40.00 - so I'm wondering if this is a good deal or if I should pony up almost double the price for a Presto SS one?

 

Thank you!

I don't know without seeing it. I do agree, though, get stainless steel and not aluminum.

I found two at the thrift stores for $15 each. One was brand new, the other just slightly used. My friend got an older model Presto for $7 at Goodwill. Just in case you want to try to find something less expensive yet.

If it is a cooker, then I don't think you can use it for canning.

 

You can get a Presto, that cans for about $70-90.

Thanks, it is for cooking. I see that the maker of the Crofton pressure cooker is out of the country - so it would probably be difficult to find the replacement parts for it.....

 

Guess I'll put the Presto on my Christmas wish list!

Hokey smokes! I got backup replacement gaskets, overpressure plugs and regulators for my canner, and never gave a thought to my pressure cooker! Thanks Violet!
