Fissler Stainless Steel Cookware and Pressure CookersWe are carrying Fissler Vitaquick pressure cookers now at MetroKitchen.com! These high-quality Fissler Vitaquick pressure cookers are great for making many different types of dishes and foods. They also come with a lifetime warranty! In this blog I’ll cover the features and advantages of these awesome pressure cookers.

What Makes Them Better Than the Others?

Made in Germany, these new pressure cookers from Fissler are designed to improve upon almost every aspect of cooking performance. They’re made with high quality metals and their construction prevents leaking and noise. Unlike older pressure cookers, a Vitaquick pressure cooker from Fissler only allows steam to escape from the cooker when the pressure is too high. At a proper cooking temperature, the unit is completely silent and will not release any steam. These units also require less energy for cooking because since they don’t leak steam, they’re extremely efficient at creating pressure and heat.

A Fissler pressure cooker can also help you make healthier meals as well. Because they use the steam from your dish to cook the food, you don’t have to use as much oil or butter for cooking, resulting in healthier meals with less fat.

These units will never rust or corrode because the interior and exterior of each pressure cooker is made from 18/10 stainless steel. Unlike other metals, this steel is also ideal for cooking because it will never react with foods, so you can cook with ingredients like tomatoes and lemon without affecting their flavors. The base of each cooker heats quickly and evenly because Fissler’s CookStar all stove base is made with a layer of aluminum on the interior with stainless steel surrounding it on the outside, like other top quality cookware.The CookStar all stove base is compatible with induction cooktops as well as gas and electric stoves. A combination of an induction cooktop with one of these efficient Fissler pressure cookers would result in amazingly low energy consumption!

Also unlike other pressure cookers, each part of every Fissler Vitaquick pressure cooker is dishwasher safe!

The Vitaquick pressure cookers from Fissler are great for cooking nearly any type of food or dish, including any meats, fish, vegetables, stews, soups, and roasts. The recipe book included with each pressure cooker lists a huge number of different meals, including many recipes for risotto, desserts like pumpkin cheesecake, and even steamed crab legs. Essentially, if you can slow-cook it or steam it, you can pressure cook it in a Fissler Vitaquick model in less time, using less energy, and with less oil and fat. The only recipes you should not cook in this pressure cooker are apple sauce and stewed fruits. With the pressure lid detached you can even use these pans for deep frying!

We also carry a pressure pan that’s more shallow, so it’s perfect for sauteing and pan frying as well as pressure cooking! You can use it to sear a piece of meat before enclosing it with vegetables under the pressure lid and pressure cooking it slowly.

    Pressure cooker helps food cooked faster than conventional cooking methods. Food can be prepared in a shorter period of time and preserved vitamins and minerals. Very nice post.

    I purchased a Fissler VitaQuick pressure cooker and can’t get it to stop releasing steam in order to cook under pressure. No leaks around the sides. The pressure indicator is at 2 bars. Any suggestions?

      It is possible that the silicon gasket or the removable plastic pieces are fitted incorrectly on the top of the pan. If they are, that could cause the pressure cooker to release steam improperly. Have you disassembled the lid to put it into the washing machine? If so, I would check to make sure that the plastic pieces and the gasket on the lid were properly re-assembled after washing.

      Also, if the pressure indicator is at two bars, that is indicating that the cooker is at maximum pressure. It is possible that the cooker is releasing steam because the pressure is too high. This is an automatic steam release feature of the Fissler VitaQuick models to prevent the temperature from rising too much. Does it release steam consistently, or is it intermittent?

    I have the same issue and have followed the common troubleshooting steps. The euromatic valve is defective… the steam and “gurgling” escape even after the valve closes but before the cooker achieves pressure. How do I get a replacement euromatic valve?
