This report shows you five established, reliable pressure cookers, performing as owners expect. Our unbiased recommendations are based on combined owner rating scores, which we also share with you.

This ratings-driven view of the market often highlights unexpected models for sale. It can also steer you away from a 'bestseller' - if the owner ratings reveal poor performance.

The Best Pressure Cookers 2019

How does it work?

We begin by building a list of pressure cookers with more than 50 ratings at Amazon UK, Argos and John Lewis . This jumps straight to the established products, and the rating scores reveal how they've actually performed, according to numerous owners.

We then remove the pressure cookers with less than 4 stars. We now have a list of the higher rated models, with a credible amount of opinion.

We use the same criteria for all our consumer reports: each product must have over 50 reviews and more than 4 stars. After sorting the list by ratings, we compile this Top 5.

Our Notes on this Market

2017

Our third year of calculating pressure cooker ratings, sees a small change from last year. The WMF, Prestige Hi-Dome and Tefal Neo, are joined by a model from Kuhn Rikon, plus a different model from Tefal.

For this ratings round-up, we looked at classic hob pressure cookers, not electric pressure cookers or all-in-one devices.

We understand that the Tefal Neo has two pressure settings: we read this is a useful option for some food types. The basic model of the Clipso, has one pressure setting, the more expensive has two. Fully check the product details of each, if this is important to you.

Check for suitability if you have an induction hob. Most pressure cookers work fine on other heat sources: gas, halogen, ceramic and electric.

2016

In this 2016 update to our best pressure cooker report, we see that the WMF Perfect Plus and the Prestige Hi Dome pressure cookers are still scoring very well.

We see the arrival of three new pressure cookers to our Top 5, pushing out the multi-function pressure cookers that scored well last year.

We found 20 pressure cookers at Argos and 20 at Tesco, with John Lewis selling 3. It is always hard for us to tell exactly how many Amazon sell: there are duplicate listings and associated items in the search results, but we think at least 100.

It’s not the biggest product sector and it is relatively easy to navigate. The main pressure cookers for sale in the UK are made by Prestige, Tefal, Morphy Richards, WMF and Kuhn Rikon.

We don’t see too much innovation in this market, as there isn’t much to improve in terms of function. We do note the improvements to safety features however.

Overall we saw many excellent pressure cookers. The ones in our 2016 Top 5 score very well according to the combined owner ratings.
