To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
First of all the lid doesn't fit the cooker easily. It takes a lot of effort to rightly place it. Then another mystery unveiled, it starts oozing out water at every whistle. Such pathetic quality. The only wrong thing I did is to use it post-replacecment days.
Given an overall 1 star review as we received a Faulty Pressure Cooker. Whenever we tried to use it, the cooker never whistled and the Pressure Weight used to dance around releasing steam. Tried 3 times with different food items and 1 time with just water to check if we were doing something wrong - but confirmed now that the product faulty!
Hard to clean. Cooker is faulty but no help from amazon or seller. Also very small pot, remember 1/2 of the pot or 1/3 is only usable. And also due to curve design hard to clean on top edge. On this price tag anyone should go for more reputable brands. This looks like a fake hawkin, not recommended at all.
It's a overall good pressure cooker andonised steel is an added benefit. I have used a electrical cooker previously but they are almost impossible to clean properly. This one does the job perfectly plus clean is as simple as you would wash a saucepan! The reason for giving it a 4 stars us that the safety instructions came with it were for another Hawkins model and not for this one so I has to search online for a few tips etc.
