I recently bought a 5 liter Kuhn which is not a top model. In the instruction book they show two different pressure reduction methods
for the top model. One they call NORMAL AUTOMATIC PRESSURE REDUCTION and the second they call RAPID AUTOMATIC PRESSURE REDUCTION. Either one is achieved by manually rotating the valve. I assume that the normal is a reduced release of pressure while the rapid position is for
completely free pressure reduction. I also assume that you could vent the pressure cooker for a time before building pressure. This is all done manually by rotating the valve. I suppose that one reason for the reduced pressure reduction is to aid in eliminating foaming. I have never seen a top model so I am just going by what I have read.

As to the rice cooker spitting water all over the early generation of rice cookers had no way of moderating the cooking temperature other than off, cook or warm. The Zojirushi fuzzy logic cookers moderate the temperature very well and do not spit moisture all over. I have one and it does an excellent job cooking rice, including brown rice. However it cost about $150.00. The pressure cooker is much more versatile for about the same price. The one feature that I absolutely like about the fuzzy logic rice cooker is that you can prepare, i.e. put water, rice and whatever in the cooker, decide when you want it done and it will be done. This is really nice when coming home after work and have fresh cooked rice or stews ready when you walk in the door. I must also say that I do prefer rice, especially brown rice,
cooked in a pressure cooker.

I hope this helps.
