Zavor is honored to have their DUO Pressure Cooker selected as the Best Buy Stovetop Pressure Cooker by the illustrious America’s Test Kitchen. The DUO was previously named the ‘best buy’ in this cookware category by the renowned culinary powerhouse after being put through rigorous testing alongside several competitor units. Now that the DUO has gotten additional features and upgrades, America’s Test Kitchen revisited the unit to see if it still holds up and it should come as no surprise, it did.

DUO Pressure Cooker

The pressure cooker, which has been used in homes for well over a half century, has always been valued for its time saving attributes. Pressure cookers cook at higher temperatures because the internal pressure they produce raises the boiling point above the standard 212°F. The higher temperature allows the cooking to be completed up to 3 times faster, reducing energy costs by about two thirds.

The DUO is equipped with 2 pressure settings for LOW (8psi) and HIGH (15psi) that give it the capability to handle almost any food from the most delicate of vegetables to the toughest meats. Not only can it handle a wide array of different foods, it also retains food’s nutritional value as well as vitamins and minerals that would otherwise be lost in other cooking methods.


“We purchased it and put it through its paces, using all the same tests. (…) The rebranded model by Zavor is our new Best Buy…”

Most pressure cookers require the lid to be placed on the pot in a very precise way in order to create a proper seal for proper pressure accumulation. This often times proves difficult for some, but with the updated lid on the DUO, the lid alignment is clearly indicated with guiding arrows that show exactly where to align and close the lid. In addition to this alignment guide, once the lid is properly closed the locking mechanism will automatically click into place, ensuring that the lid is correctly locked in. Whether

preparing an elaborate dinner or a quick lunch, the DUO cooks food faster and safer than the rest.

“Zavor’s DUO has been praised as the top pressure cooker on the market for years and with its updated features, it has only gotten better. It is the optimal addition to any contemporary kitchen, providing a touch of elegance along with precision and efficiency.”


Sara de la Hera, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Zavor

The DUO is available in 4Qt., 6Qt., 8Qt. and 10Qt sizes as well as the DUO Combi Set that includes a 4Qt. and an 8 Qt. pot.
