I use this often. It works well and easily, and cooks the food well. I've had it about 10 years, and never had a problem or had to replace a part. I find the size is perfect for cooking a big pot of stew or soup. It is easy to clean
a great pressure cooker!
Bought a Raco because a friend had one and used it often. Mine has been
great but I am careful about cleaning it and placing lid. Leakages can be due to too much liquid or badlly placed lid. My daughter is always borrowing it so I am buying her one for her birthday. Good pressure cooker.
Roco pressure cooker is a fail
So we all know it pays to buy quality, and it was a mistake to buy this budget brand. The steam when pressurised actually warps the function creating your pressure cooker. Breaking it by it melting So go save up, get a good one. My mums got one she's had for 30 years. quality. can't remember although i've had it 7 years it was in storage for about 4 years. it's only belen used about 20 x now it's just a big pot. it does not work as a pressure cooker.
Ordinary Pressure Cooker
I bought my pressure cooker Raco , a year ago and exploded twice . The first time I thought it explode as I did not lock the pan properly but, but a week later explode again. After a couple of days I am still cleaning my kitchen. Massive mess , horrible pan. Don't waste your money buy it .
Plastic part of pressure adjustment valve split after only a few months and a handful of uses
No longer holds pressure as a result of this split in the plastic portion of the valve. Also leaks pressure around the lid handle. Cheaply made yet premium price. Posting to Melbourne for repair would cost $60 return. Cheaper to buy a new one than waste any more money on this underperforming lemon.
Worked the first time, from then on hasn't worked, tried various times but just leaks out of the side. Took it apart put all back together worked that time, next no. going to take it back should be under warranty. Hopeless.
Been great for us
My wife and I had bought a pressure cooker of a different brand that leaked the first two times we used it, so we got this Raco pressure cooker and love it. Some of our friends and family use it as well because it has worked so well. It is simple to use and strong, highly recommend it.
Simple to use
I am going to have to buy another one for my rellies now because they use ours too often
It was ok until it exploded
I had one of these for 2 years only and the other day it exploded on the stove without any warnings. I was just turned my back and walked away from the stove so it only got me on the back of my leg...Scary...I am still cleaning my kitchen after 2 days !!! My new cooker will be a different brand for sure :((
Quick cooking time
Exploded with a huge bang on the stove and flooded my kitchen from floor to ceiling
