The Fissler Quattro Set includes a stainless steel pressure cooker, pressure skillet, steamer inset and tripod. This set is the perfect size to meet the cooking needs of an individual or small family.
The well-known Fissler pressure cooker is silent and steam-free under pressure. It uses less water than most pressure cookers. This means the food will be more nutritious and tasty.
The set is UL certified, which is the industry standard for safety. Safety devices include an auto-locking lid on the pressure cooker. The lid closes with an audible click and a visual indicator changes from red to green when closed the lid is securely closed. The cooker will not build pressure unless the lid is firmly sealed. Additionally, the lid is designed to be easily operated with only one hand. A blue indicator rod on the lid has two settings, gentle or speed cooking, so that you can regulate the pressure for the food you are preparing.
A useful measuring scale inside the cooking pot allows you to add ingredients directly to the pot.
The auto-lock handle can also be removed for cleaning. The pressure cooker, skillet, steamer and lids are dishwasher-safe.
The Fissler pressure skillet features the unique Norville frying surface. This honeycomb texture uses less oil in frying, searing and grilling, so cooking is healthier. The skillet also comes with a glass lid.
The pressure cooker and skillet are made of heavy duty stainless steel that has been polished to an attractive sheen. And both the pressure cooker and skillet can be used on all cooking surfaces, including convection cooktops. They have an aluminum core base encapsulated by stainless steel to ensure even heat.
A Steamer basket and tripod stand are also included with this set. These are perfect for steaming vegetables, fish and tamales.

When my children left for college, meals were very different around here. We went from dinners for six to just two. My old pots and pans seemed too large and most of them were unused and unnecessary. They were just taking up space. My husband and I started eating out a lot and that gets expensive. We also spent a lot of time just snacking. I don’t want to tell you how many times we just ate cereal for dinner. We were definitely not eating good meals at home anymore. I knew in the back of my mind that things had to change, but I wasn’t sure what to do.
I mentioned the food situation to a neighbor of mine. She also had kids the same age, but she was still enjoying cooking. She told me her secret was using a pressure cooker. She took me to her kitchen and showed me her Fissler Vitaquick Quatro Set. This certainly didn’t look like the heavy, old pressure cooker that we got for a wedding present years ago. I had never used it much and finally gave it away. The Fissler pressure cooker and skillet were attractive. The lids were light and the set also included a steamer. My friend showed me some of the recipes that she cooked. I was surprise how quickly she could prepare dinner. It sounded too good to be true.
I was tempted. I wanted to fix tasty, nutritious meals, and I didn’t feel like spending a whole lot of time in the kitchen. But it meant, getting rid of the familiar, although unused pots and pans, and investing in a whole new type of cooking. I looked up pressure cookers on the internet. There was a lot of information to support the nutritional value of pressure cooked food. I also found tons of recipes that looked delicious. I couldn’t believe how easy they were to prepare.
I finally decided to buy my own Fissler Vitaquick Quatro Set. It was a commitment to a new way of living, a healthier one. Now, I have a routine.
I decide on one or two recipes a week that Frank and I enjoy—soup, or stew, or chicken. The actual preparation take so little time and there are always left overs. I have used the steamer for corn and shrimp. They are just delicious.
Now I can say that we are eating as well as when the kids were here. And when they come over for dinner, I use the pressure cooker and the skillet and we have plenty of food to feed everyone
