You are 100% correct.

You should also note that you never want to cook acidic foods in aluminum either.

Stainless is the only way to go. Once you try a quality stainless cooker you will never go back to aluminum.

This is a very nice place to start. http://amzn.com/B00002N602


"What is the difference between aluminum and stainless steel pressure cookers? [missvickie.com]

Aluminum pressure cookers are lightweight, low cost, and provide uniform heating performance due to the excellent heat conduction of aluminum. With heavy use, however, aluminum cookware will stain and pit and, although this doesn't affect how it cooks, it's important to note aluminum's intrinsic weakness. Economy is the main reason to choose an aluminum pressure cooker.



Stainless steel pressure cookers are nonporous, slightly heavier, and more expensive than aluminum models. The extremely durable nature of stainless steel will provide years of use with a beautiful high luster finish. However, by itself, stainless steel is not a good conductor of heat, so it's best to select a model with a layered base, usually a disc of aluminum bonded to the outside bottom of the pan. This will greatly improve the heating characteristics and performance of a stainless steel pressure cooker by eliminating "hot spots" that would otherwise be common in stainless steel cookware."

Perhaps it would be good for you to provide links to the $40 6 qt and $44 8 qt stainless pressure cookers you recommend, with reasons why one should spend twice as much for stainless vs aluminum.
For small batch canning, does it make any difference?
And how much more do the stainless models weigh than the aluminum?

Edit: I realize if you haven't actually used both, you might not know and you would look at weight on Amazon listing. Well, it's obviously incorrect Smilie

stainless steel cooker causes the food to stick at the base much more than aluminium. Also aluminium is a better conductor of heat.

But what about a stainless with a tri-ply base?

And to expand on that....
Which works best and is recommended for what types of cooktops? Which is NOT (officially) recommended for glass/ceramic cooktops?

What I was really getting at with my first reply was...
For the uninformed, "more" info helps in making purchasing decisions. Reviews one reads on each type don't usually compare aluminum to stainless.
So when one sees "spend twice as much or more on this instead", they might want to know why maybe they actually should. Or, depending on the intended use, maybe it won't matter.

I love my pressure cooker for the last 4 years, I have been apprehensive about the black water color when I am washing it.

stainless will work great on all of the cook tops (unofficial recommendation).. aluminum is a better conductor, useful in heat sinks because of this, but cooking is not its strong point... it heats and cools faster, losses heat that could be used in the cooking more readily....

pressure cookers should be made of a harder metal than aluminum in my opinion. this item could be used by someone with experience, but temp levels may have to be adjusted or times, and this isn't easily done for pressure cookers as they work under the premise of time, heat and pressure combination. you can't just.. open the pot and look... and cover it back for five minutes.. you would need to wait for pressure and temp to readjust before restating your five minutes

most of what i have ever done had been canning, but seems like we may have done some roast and noodles at some time.. always stainless, never sticking..

i wouldn't take this deal b/c of aluminum...

can whoever does try this let me know what they cooked and how it turned out?

In my experience, the cooking part is identical between aluminum and stainless steel. The major difference to me is that the aluminum doesn't work on my induction stove top.
