Thanks for mentioning this to me, I will look at it. Right
now I have 2 and 1/2 pressure cookers the Tfal, a 4 quart Presto and the base for a 4 quart Kuhn Rikon that I bought a few years ago and shortly after moved and lost the lid in the move. Guy has sent me a lid which needs the pressure regulating spring and a gasket which I have ordered. I will start using the Kuhn when I get the parts.

What I was looking for was a pressure cooker larger in diameter than the than what I have to allow more choices in the selection of pots for a pot in pot cooking. However yesterday I was dropping some stuff off at a nonprofit thrift shop and saw a pot 7 3/4 inches in diameter with a lid that has vent holes in it and the lid will attach to the body of the pot with a twist. The lid has a knob which allows the pot to be picked up as a whole and seems to be ideal for pot in pot type of cooking. The pot was made by Rival for baking cakes and breads in a crockpot, which seemed incredible to me. I haven't tried using it yet but will, my only concerns are at the high temperature will the knob melt and the anodization on the pot. The thought then occured to me that one could also find similar pots with handles on the side at outdoor sporting goods stores that would work well. Most are aluminum
for weight but some are stainless steel and others are titanium at a very high price.

I plan on seeing what happens with the knob by putting some water in the pot and cooking it in a pressure cooker as though cooking food.

Thanks again for the tip.
