I grew up with my mum always using her pressure cooker on the hob, and the food she made with it was always delicious! Recently my sister came to visit me in the UK from South Africa and said she could make the old dishes my mum used to if I had a pressure cooker, so I went and bought one. And the food was just like in the old days! We then spent Christmas with family, where I discovered they had a Kenwood PC400 electric pressure cooker, and I instantly fell in love! We used it to make bean soup, and the first thing I noticed was it was lightning quick!! We had the beans in there for 15 minutes in total(including warm up period), and it was so efficient, the beans were falling apart! Needless to say I also want an electric pressure cooker, but they don't make the Kenwood any longer, and I've been trawling the internet for days now without finding something suitable. As far as I can see, most of the electric pressure cookers operate on a below average pressure(around 8-12 psi) where conventional pressure cookers operate around 15 psi. This is where I hope you someone here can help. I need an electric pressure cooker that will operate at 15 psi or higher. And from what I can gather, they don't include this crucial information in the manual or spec sheet!
