Know of a pressure cooker manufacturer who
Do you know of a pressure cooker manufacturer who will let you send in your dysfunctional pressure cooker for repair? I have two pcs that do not build up pressure. One is an 8 qt. Magefesa and another is somewhat smaller Kuhn-Rikon (the one that had risotto instructions on a ring on top, but it fell off). K-R wouldn't deal with it, but put me in touch with a US parts vendor who kept selling me different parts, which were difficult to install in some instances, and never solved the problem. Magefesa has sent me a new silicone gasket, but this has not helped, and I am awaiting another email response from that company. Both of these worked well initially and then stopped working after 6 to 10 uses. That's a lot of resources for 16 uses! Both are stainless steel, heavy, and seem like nice cookware. I will not buy another from a company that just wants to keep experimenting on my nickel.
