I want to get one but don't know much about them.
Those whose have one, what do you really like about them? hate?
What size should I buy? Is bigger really better?
Brand preference?

Thanks!

I have a 7 qt. Kuhn Rikon that I've used for my personal chef business for at least 7-8 years. It replaced a 4 qt. Fagor that broke (although I now can't recall what happened with that one!). The Kuhn Rikon was highly rated by other personal chefs; I've had to replace several parts over the years, but I have a good reliable source for those parts and it's cheaper than buying a new pressure cooker (I believe I paid $175 for mine).

I rarely use it for my own use, but when I'm at a client's house it's great for pot roasts, stews and other things that take hours to cook. I can cook a 4-5 pound pot roast in under an hour. I also make risotto in it, which takes only 5 minutes (once it comes up to pressure). They're also great for making stocks.
