    We use one at work - cheap rattle top kind made by a company called "JASI"

    It's only used for hard-boiled eggs regularly and not much else.  

    Simple and gets the work done.

    (scares the crap outta the new cooks but it's actually really very safe, with 4 separate safety releases.)

    I'm using a Fagor Duo 8 quart. I like it pretty well.

    "Anyone using pressure cookers out there? Has anyone tried the Iwatani? NSF"

    I've been using pressure cookers since I was taught (over years I might add) and love them. Think they're terrific. Love how they tenderize lesser cut meats, do vegetables in no time, and something like dried beans are amazingly made simple.

    But, I've never seen one that puts me into the NSF (non sufficient funds) category... :) What is NSF?

    National Sanitation Foundation  - they establish health and safety standards with regards to food preparation and food handling items.   Required in most US jurisdictions but not all, kind of hit and miss as a 'requirement' in Canada and else-where around the world.  (ie. some items are required to be NSF certified but not all.)

    Did you find one?  I have been looking I am not sure that an Electrical Pressure Cooker that is also NSF is made because I can not find one.

    This thread is 5+ years old, you are unlikely to get a reply.
