Mirro pressure cookers are a no fuss or no-frills type of cookwares. They have the basic functions and features expected of its kind. Like all the others, it can cut cooking time up to 70% without sacrificing the nutrients and flavors of the food. They come with a limited ten year warranty and parts and accessories are also readily available online. The downside to this product is its only aluminum made, there are no stainless steel ones if you are looking for that finish. It appears inferior in design compare to the pressure cookwares in the market. Another disadvantage is the fact that it is not recommended for use on glass stove top since it has a concave bottom. This makes it less versatile and flexible. However, this product is very affordable, $35-$90 depending on the size and model.
