Aluminium toxicity: Since there is so much talk about AT, I thought I will add my recent personal experience that might help some. I take Levothyroxin, the only prescription drug though I recently became old enough to collect social security, for Hypothyroidism. In the last 18 months I got into the habit of taking the antacid Gaviscon (a stupid decision) which contains Al in various forms and some salt as well. At the same time I started adding some extra salt to veggie smoothies (in the place of sugar) I make and my BP shot up to dangerous levels along with problems in kidney and heart. I figured quickly the additional salt intake as the culprit and went on a 100% salt that brought the BP to normal level. During the recent annual check up, the PCP latched onto still high TSH and started increasing the LevoT dosage and suggested few others (anemic, low testosterone etc.), I looked into what other mistake I was doing. I realized I was taking the Gaviscon at the same time as LT which interfered with its absorption and the Al in Gaviscon was the reason for my major problems. I stopped using it completely and in a month my energy level went back up and the TSH number came down drastically (from 5.1 to 0.9).

That was my big lesson with Al. A simple vessel might not have that much effect but perhaps worth toKeep away from all Al and buy a stainless steel (or other) paying more. But of course many of us drink all sort of drinks from Al containers (I don't drink any soft drinks) and hence a comprehensive review might be worthwhile.

Dont these come with stainless steel bowls to be placed inside the cooker? I think we can use any stainlessstell bow to cook rice to avoid contact with Aluminum.

not only that, if it's the same one i had (it looks to be), the aluminium actually comes off when you wipe it down with a paper towel (after it's a little hot)

definitely pass on this

Even if you put steel bowl, the vapor will still get in from Aluminum to bowl.

We replaced all our aluminum cockers with steet

May be true of plain aluminum but Anodized Aluminum would be fine. Got a Hawkins Futura and Fagor. Use both regularly. The 9L is a great deal at $69.

pressure cooker can be an amazing tool. May be worthwhile to buy a good one. America's test Kitchen had a very helpful vid on YouTube that help me pick mine. I don't regret buying a good one. I have an 8 quart and it seems just big enough. Fabor is the brand I chose. Made beef stew last night in an hour and a half from cubing to cooking.

But if you aren't sure you will like using a pressure cooker then $10 unit might be a good entry choice.

Is there something wrong with Aluminium? I know in India, almost all pressure cookers are Al, I know this because almost every Indian guy at the dorm had one

You sure about that check again its likely not alum.; every Asian home and store I visited have pressure cookers made of very high quality ss, that cookware is always cheaper and better then the overpriced belgique and tools touted at macys and the like, far cheaper for better quality.

Stainless steel or bust

I know because they all used to bring them from back home and used to say how light weight it is. I guess the main trouble is if you cook acidic foods in it. Cooking lentils and rice, etc never had any issue
