Looks like a good deal :-). I'm not anal about scratches etc when I buy (most) things because once Ive used it for a month, its likely to have picked up a LOT more...

Don't ever EVER use any pressure cooker that has any kind of dent or bending ever at all. EVER. Don't even look in the same direction as it.

 

Aluminum is easily deformed and severely weakened every time it is bent.

Thats the same model I use, and mine was new last year and I paid around that for it...it will get you by well. I work mine pretty hard and have had no issue with it.

I just got a couple of those new for not a whole lot more... I think the Man of Sand is directing you to a sound decision... What is a couple extra bucks to ensure you don't have a cooker blowing up in your face... I really enjoyed steamed veggies, but steamed bezevo??? Does not sound appealing to me... Maybe at a Chinese restaurant I guess, those sauces make just about anything yummy!!

Usually with these Deals  there is no  actual physical  damage to products in this category ,but  the packaging has some scuffing or light tearing that's  been taped but doesn't even go all the way threw or even to the Styrofoam packing  .

so when i buy things like this i inspect on arrival. and there is no damage or at worst light scratches ,

If the actual product is actually damaged i request a return label , never had a problem they just send return label..and refund my credit card .

 

SANDMAN  is correct if product damaged you don't want to risk it NO ! NO ! .

I should have pointed that out in my original post .i forgot common sense eludes some of our fellow  humans . thanks sandman .

if its only  a couple extra pieces of tape on a box ....SCORE  you just saved $20 .

 

I  just bought two ozone gyrators . in this discounted category both marked down about $20  each . the only damage was slight scuffing to outside surface on one box and other box had a triangle shaped tear on surface of box with tape, i was amazed they would discount $20 for that as products were in new mint condition .

 

so as sandman pointed out ,,,,Use common since  please !

That's a hell of a deal, I don't see where you could go wrong with it.

I would be less concerned about scratches (if they are just cosmetic), and more concerned about whether it had ever been allowed to run dry. Esp. for aluminium. So new would be great :-) Looks like a good deal.

I've got my 11l. steel one that looks like it is going to last a few centuries...

I got my brother a 22 qt Mirro model this last year on sale for just over $50.  It's not fancy, but it works good.   I think it is a very comparable unit to the Presto, and its got a hell of a price point.

 

I'm thinking about getting myself another one to keep as an emergency backup, or in case I need to process a whole lot of something  in a short time and need another PC to help do it.   

 

Hell, I'm a bit of a prepper, and I'm willing to bet that in a SHTF situation an extra PC would be worth quite a bit in trade.

Doesnt have to be fancy... Just has to do the job. 99% of the time, the legal regulations mean a pressure cooker will work well and do it for quite a while.
