I'm looking at getting a pressure cooker but am having trouble making a decision!!! My MIL has generously offered to buy me one for Christmas!!
The brand I'm looking at is Fagor Duo.
The sizes I'm deciding between are the 8-quart and the 10-quart. The 10-quart has the added capability of doing small lots (4 1-quart jars) of canning if I so decide.... Is the 10-quart too big for normal pressure cooking, though?
10 qt is what you should aim for, because you can only use about 60% of the total pressure cooker's max capacity. For a 10 qt pressure cooker, the most you'll be making is about 6 qt of food. Get the 10 qt, and don't look back.
