Pressure Cookers

I am (after watching Heston) looking to buy a pressure cooker. I make all my own stock using a preserving pan, to which I add 4 litres of water, along with my chicken carcass and veg. This produces approx 2 litres of stock. Lacor make a 10 ltr one which I thought would enable me to make a large quantity at a time but I have not heard of them and they only offer a 6 month warranty - False economy? Any recommendations?

It is possible to make stock in smaller quantities by using less water. If you have a use for a bigger pressure cooker, aside from stock, go for it. I use my standard 40 year-old Prestige one mainly for beetroot, chickpeas, and other beans, cooked ham, Christmas puddings, etc.

Funnily enough I always make chicken stock in 20 minutes in the microwave.

I have a Meyer Prestige Ultra St/st Pressure Cooker, 7 Litre capacity which I use for stock etc.. Have a feeling this model isn't made now (mine is 5 years old) but I find it really useful for all sorts and quite big enough for most tasks with one exception - bottling fruit. Previously I had a high dome PC which could take two Kilner jars and had a low pressure of 5lbs. The current model's lowest pressure is 8lbs, too high for bottling acc to Prestige. I guess it depends what you might use it for apart from stock-making. Good luck!
