You’ve heard a lot of noise about the Instant Pot (it’s a 7-in-1 miracle machine!), and although you like the idea of being able to “set and forget,” maybe you’re not a fan of bulky products that have an overwhelming amount of settings and functions? Sometimes you just want to — quickly — make some beans, right?
We feel you.
That’s why we like this stainless steel Fissler Vitaquick Pressure Cooker (on sale on Amazon right now for more than 25 percent off).
Fissler Vitaquick Pressure Cooker, $220
It’s decidedly low-tech, low-profile, and simple, made specifically for stove top cooking. Available in 4.5, 6, and 8 quart capacities, the cooker is engineered to be completely silent and steam-free, has an internal measuring scale to make set-up time easier, and is dishwasher-safe for easy clean-up. (Note: the 4.5 option is also on sale, now for $181.)
