Kuhn Rikon Pressure Cookers

Quiet, super-safe, extremely attractive, and "everyday practical"... If you don't associate those words with pressure cookers, it can only be because you haven't experienced Kuhn Rikon Duromatic... and you're in for a big treat!

Cooking with a Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cooker reduces cooking times (and energy costs!) by two thirds. It makes tough foods tender, and enhances flavor blending for tastier dishes. Kuhn Rikon Duromatic also preserves the vivid colors of your vegetables — as well as more of their nutrients. But in the past, pressure cookers have been big, noisy monstrosities... and more than a little scary!

Crafted in Switzerland of 18-10 Surgical Stainless with the attention to detail for which the Swiss are world renowned, Kuhn Rikon Duromatic Cookware will revolutionize your perceptions of pressure cooking. With super quiet valves, clad construction, and 5 unique (and truly effective) safety systems, Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cookware is changing the way cooking is done.

The Kuhn Rikon Duromatic line features fry pans that pressure cook and braise, with innovative stick resistant stainless surfaces, and interchangeable glass lids. The Kuhn Rikon Duromatic Thermal Cooker receives a clip-on tray to become an elegant service piece with insulated lid that keeps food hot up to 2 hours! Every Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cooker base features a thick layer of pure aluminum sandwiched between stainless steel for even browning and fast warm up.

Versatile Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cookers are sized for any task, from singles and small families to the professional cook. And Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cookers work on all cooking surfaces, including induction cooktops.

Pleasant Hill Grain is proud to offer Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cookware. If we can help you with more information, please e-mail or call us toll free at the number below. We're here to help!

I appreciated her pleasant demeanor, follow through, and commitment to helping me. We're delighted. Susan Moll, Nashville TN


I'd like to compliment you for making my dealings with your company a very enjoyable experience. Your polite manner, courteous behavior, and professionalism are greatly appreciated. Your company sets the standard for Internet shopping. I will recommend Pleasant Hill Grain highly to all of my friends. Rodney G. Chelius, Jr., Lynnwood WA

Gaskets should be replaced periodically, as they will harden over time and stop working -- which will cause seal loss, and your cooker won't work. It's easiest to order a spare gasket available below with your cooker, so you'll have a backup. (They can also be nicked or damaged by a stove burner, etc.) Tip: When not in use, gaskets can be removed from cooker lid to maintain proper shape for longest life.
Can you use a Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker for canning? Answer's here!
With any pressure cooker, be sure to add sufficient water. Complete evaporation will spoil your food and damage the cooker. If you want, you can keep food suspended above the water by using a trivet.

3.5, 5 & 7 Liter Turn-Top Pressure Cookers by Kuhn Rikon

New Kuhn Rikon line: These new Kuhn Rikon "Turn Top" pressure cookers are identical in size and construction to the cookers listed immediately above, except that they have a different pressure relief valve. With most Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers, pressure can be released by pressing and holding the stem down at the peak of the lid. The valve at the top of these "Turn Top" models can be twisted, then let go of, to release pressure until the valve is turned back to the normal closed position. Click for detailed images.

The 5 liter will do 3.5 lb. chicken/4 lb. roast, while the 7 liter Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cooker
(our most popular model) handles large roasts, canning, corn on the cob, dinner for 8 to 10. Stainless steaming trivet included with all sizes. (See full Kuhn Rikon dimensions.)

Out of all the pressure cookers I tested, the one I liked the best—it really made cooking a breeze—was a Kuhn Rikon, made in Switzerland. It comes in many shapes and sizes. I have the one that resembles a frying pan. The bottom of these pans, even though they are stainless steel, is virtually nonstick and the opening and closing mechanisms work as if they had been freshly oiled. There is no separate weight that has to be placed on the top and no frightening, hissing noises as the cooking proceeds. A truly wonderful gadget. – Madhur Jaffrey, author of Madhur Jaffrey's Quick and Easy Indian Cooking

It is so nice to get such fast, friendly service. My husband and I are headed to Africa soon and I didn't want to leave without my Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker!

Kuhn Rikon Duromatic Pressure Cooker Trio Set


The Trio Set was discontinued by Kuhn Rikon in 2010.

Last month I went a little crazy and purchased three Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers: The Duo set and the 3.5L. I swear, they have changed our lives. They're so different from my old Presto and Fagor. They’re quiet, sized right, come to pressure quickly, and generally take even less time than the recipes call for. I appreciate Pleasant Hill Grain so much because I know I can trust you, your products and your service. Kerry Webb, Germantown MD

Replacement Lid Gaskets

Kuhn Rikon recommends replacing lid gaskets annually.
Replacement Gaskets for Kuhn Rikon Pressure Cookers

You can order gaskets by model number for current models. (For older models: The gasket sizes refer to the diameter across the inside edge of the gasket itself, not the diameter of the cooker. To convert from inches to centimeters, multiply inches x 2.54.)

Gaskets should be replaced periodically, as they will harden over time and stop working (which will cause seal loss, and your cooker won't work because the necessary pressure won't develop.) It's easiest to order a spare with your cooker, and it's also good to have a backup in case yours gets nicked or damaged by a stove burner, etc.

20 cm Gasket (Item #1657): Fits #3147, 3050 & 3914.
22 cm Gasket (Item #1501):
Fits #3068, 3342, 3344, 3064, 3043, 3044, 3916 & 3918.

Flame Tamer/Energy Saver Disk

Our flame tamer will protect your smaller pressure cooker and your gasket on gas stoves. Especially recommended for the shallow Pressure Frypans, but equally effective for all other pressure cookers, stainless and copper cookware. The disk captures heat that would otherwise go up the sides of your pot, and directs it into the base of the pan, where it is quickly and efficiently absorbed. 11-inch diameter for added stability and energy efficiency for small pots. Coated for easy cleaning.

Kuhn Rikon & Bosch Mixer Cookbook

Healthy Recipes, by Phyllis Stanley: Healthy Recipes is really two cookbooks in one. Seventy pages are devoted to pressure cooking specifically, pressure cooking with Kuhn Rikon. In addition, the first hundred pages of Healthy Cooking comprise the world's premier "Unofficial Bosch Mixer Cookbook." Working with her sister Shirley, Phyllis Stanley has compiled a truly excellent guide to making all sorts of wonderful breads & goodies with the Bosch mixer. Chapters include: Daily Bread, Breakfast & Tea Breads, Pizza, Focaccia & Flatbread, Cakes & Cookies, and Holiday Baking Treats. And these recipes are not only healthy... they're also absolutely, positively delicious!

Two awesome books in one! Healthy Cooking is easily more than worth its price if you own a Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker. Ditto if you use a Bosch kitchen mixer. And if you have both, no book could be more useful useful in your kitchen than Healthy Cooking!

Fissler's Vitaquick: Available as single pieces or sets

At Pleasant Hill Grain we've been extremely impressed with Kuhn Rikon's pressure cookers for a long time—they're at the top of the pressure cooker world, and Kuhn Rikon has long been the #1 choice for more of our customers than any other brand. We also like the pressure cookers from two German makers, Fissler and BRK. Their fit and finish are outstanding, and they feature a stainless-clad conductive disk in the base for extremely even heating. As with Kuhn Rikon, both lines work on all types of cooktops: electric, gas, ceramic or induction.

  • Fissler's stackability & Novogrill surface: A couple of unique features of Fissler's Vitaquick pressure cookers are the stackability of their pressure pots, and their dimpled and highly polished Novogrill stick-resistant surfaces. Fissler's German-made quality and safe design are world renowned, and they offer an excellent selection of sizes and styles in both single cookers and sets.

  • Pressure regulator valve: One of our favorite BRK features is the continuously-adjustable pressure regulating valve. This unique valve holds exactly the pressure you set, plus it allows you to change that pressure setting at any time during the cooking process. BRK's safety design elements are second to none, eliminating the possibility of the mishaps once seen with early pressure cookers.

Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure by Lorna Sass
Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure by Lorna Sass

Under pressure to prepare a quick, nutritious dinner? Under pressure to reduce your fat and cholesterol? When the pressure's on for a great vegetarian meal on the run, turn to Lorna Sass's second guide to the safe and delicious use of the pressure cooker. Following the phenomenal success of Cooking Under Pressure, this collection of recipes dispels the myth of the difficult-to-use pressure cooker -- which is in fact easier and faster than the microwave—and shows how vegetarian fare can be vibrantly colorful and full of flavor!

Bursting with rich soups, hearty stews and casseroles, zesty curries, and flavor-packed chilis, Great Vegetarian Cooking Under Pressure brings together over 150 recipes, most with cooking times of under ten minutes. Arrive in Provence with a two-minute soupe au pistou laced with garlic and fennel; serve up an elegant zucchini bisque with tomatoes and fresh basil in just five minutes; or prepare a polenta good enough for a palazzo in only ten minutes. There are also scores of perfect vegetable side dish recipes, with an instructive chart detailing how to prepare everything from artichokes to zucchini.

Lorna Sass devotes special attention to grains -- a vital part of the healthy diet—and shows how brown rice, millet, couscous, quinoa, and bulgur can turn from gourmet store items into staples of your pantry. Whether it's Risotto with Broccoli Rabe and White Beans in five minutes, or Mediterranean Vegetable Couscous in just six, these recipes lock in delicious nutrition without tying up precious time. There's even a section about the splendid desserts that are possible with the pressure cooker, like Banana Pudding Cake and Pumpkin Bread Pudding.

Filled with informative sections about the equipment, ingredients, and language of pressure cooking, suggestions for theme menus, and mail-order resources, this compendium of high-quality, high-fiber, low-fat (and mostly cholesterol-free) dishes will become an essential guide for today's bustling cook.

My Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker came today. What a beauty! Thanks for being there as a wonderful source of high quality cookware, and thanks for the quick service. Wonderful people with a wonderful product and excellent service! – Ralph Earnest, Pflugerville TX

I researched extensively before deciding on Kuhn Rikon, but had trouble finding anyone who could answer basic questions. Most stores only knew the price. Then I found Pleasant Hill Grain. I talked with your customer service person more than thirty minutes and they answered all my questions. I knew who I was going to buy from after that, and I’ll be buying more from you. – Craig Troescher, Cincinnati OH

I'm at a loss for adequate words to express my appreciation and praise for the sincere and personable customer service each of your people demonstrated in fulfilling my order... Within the framework of global online shopping, you provide the small-town warmth and genuine, neighborly services of the local country store many of us knew in the 1950's and 60's. From this day forward, my wife and I will refer everyone we know to Pleasant Hill Grain. We have no doubt they’ll have a rewarding experience. Sincere best regards, Dennis Ronan, Keizer OR
