As soon as I did the water test. I realized that the handle area was leaking steam and would not stop leaking.
After doing this test 3 times and getting consistent results. I realized that the problem was caused by the Euromatic valve located inside the handle. part # 011-631-00-750
I looked up images on the Fissler website for this valve. The valve should have a round white plastic looking tip.
The valve on my pressure cooker did not have this component. It just had a square metallic end.
course of action:
1) Research. I went to the Williams Sonoma store in my neighborhood and looked at their Fissler pressure cookers only to discover that their valves were just like mine! (defective :-)). Yep.
2) I emailed Fissler Usa. Got no reply. I then called them. I spoke to a lady that told me that I would have to mail them the tiny valve. They would then proceed to test it in the laboratory. If in fact it was defective they would send me a new one.
I told her that I had spent close to $300 and the valve is $14 retail. Just send me the valve. . . She said no.
So, finally I bit the bullet and bought the valve from the fissler website. My Pressure Cooker works like a charm. I plan on using it daily. Made pulled pork using a pork shoulder and it was a great success. The cleaning was a breeze. This thing is a tank!
Conclusion: Buyer beware. There must be a huge batch of these problematic valves in the US. Fissler USA needs to realize that and fix it. The actual product is fantastic though.
After spending the extra money to replace the Euromatic valve to the white top, this this pressurizes quick and even holds pressure better. Knowing this makes it a shame they still sell this with the old valve. If you still have the old black top Euromatic and find yourself watching this PC steam out the handle for a few minutes before pressurizing, do yourself a favor get the whitetop valve.
If you are in the US and need support for this product expect terrible customer service from Fissler's North American distributor, Roland Inc. I've contacted several times over the last 2 weeks and have been assured callbacks. All I wanted was some technical support to troubleshoot the product, but I couldn't even get a person on the phone. The operator assured me someone would get back to me. Eventually I did receive an email, but never received a second response.
I wanted to enjoy this product as a friend of mine has one and the results were amazing, but I have no choice but to return the product at this point as the deadline is expiring.
This 1 star review is a result of a defective product and a bad experience with Fissler's lack of customer service.
I returned the Instant Pot to the store, and renewed my interest in stovetop pressure cookers. After reading the reviews of the Fissler by America's Test Kitchen, I decided to give it a try. Why did I wait so long?! I did a pressure test first thing (about 2L of water brought to high pressure for 5 minutes), and it worked like a dream. Quite a bit of machine oil came off with that first trial, so I definitely recommend doing this as well as washing it before first use. It's much wider than the Kuhn Rikon (about 10 inches versus about 8), and so it's easier to saute before starting to pressure cook. The bottom is super-heavy and goes all the way to the edge. Sauteeing is dream, as the heat is constant - more like a nice dutch oven than a regular pan. It seemed to take slightly longer to reach high pressure than the Kunh Rikon (6 or 7 minutes for 2 cups of rice and 6 cups of liquid vs. maybe 5 for the Kuhn Rikon), which makes sense because it's a lot heavier. Once it reached pressure, I turned the heat very low, and the pressure remained high - much less fiddling with the heat on my gas stove to keep the pressure even than with the Kuhn Rikon. The first dish I made was a paella-flavored risotto - no scorching and it was completely perfect in exactly the time noted in Lorna Sass's recipes for risotto. My husband then made a Korean stew with tofu and beef short ribs - the meat was falling off the bone after 20 minutes at pressure and a natural release. Amazing! I like the pressure release button - no more having to waste water cooling the cooker for a quick release, and no more mess. The little "hat" that covers the well surrounding the pressure valve on the Kuhn Rikon fell off years ago, and so water collects in that well when cooling it with water, and then that water spills when taking the lid off. There is no well on the top of the Fissler, so this would not be an issue, though I don't know why one would use water when the button works so well. I wear steamproof oven mitts and put a dish towel over the pot to contain the steam when using the pressure-release button. The pressure indicator is easy to see. It's easy to clean, though it is really heavy so definitely use 2 hands to move it around. I expect that it will serve well for another 20 years. It appears that replacement parts are available, so I will replace the gasket and other rubber/plastic bits regularly. I waited too long to do this with the Kuhn Rikon, and when I finally did, it made a large difference in performance of the pot. The Fissler is a functional thing of beauty! I highly recommend this pressure cooker.

The Fissler is a superb German technology, efficient, user friendly, easy to clean and with some helpful safety features too. Its capacity is more than adequate for us, a family varying between 2 to 6 people; it takes a little getting used to since we use it for regular cooking of rice where exact timing is essential to get a perfect result. The pressure cooker saves time, energy and preserves the taste and quality of food very well. We enjoy using it.
The item had a very big dent in the side right on the seam. Dangerous I would think for a pressure cooker and certainly not very good condition. I returned the item.
Der Schnelli ist leicht zu bedienen und zu reinigen. Ich stelle alle Teile in die Spülmaschine, insbesondere den Dichtungsring,weil er sehr stark Gerüche annimmt.
Ich kann mir eine Küche ohne Schnelli garnicht mehr vorstellen
Sehr gut ist der Verschliessmechanismus mit der Taste und der grünen Anzeige. Auch das Öffnen mit vorherigem Abdampfen ist prima. Das Kochen ist einfach, nachdem auf höchster Stufe aufgeheizt wurde kann reduziert fast geräuschlos gegart werden. Die Reinigung ist ebenfalls einfach.
!!!! Ergänzung 28.03.20: Nun, da ich zu den Menschen gehöre die gerne mal vergessen so gelang es mir auch hier und hatte den Topf volle 10 Stunden auf Stufe 9 von 9. Ich bin froh, dass mir die Bude nicht abgefackelt ist! Fakt ist, die Bohnen waren hinüber :-), aber der Topf lebt und es gab keine Explosion oder dergleichen. Die Dichtung stinkt nun verbrannt, lässt sich aber austauschen und ist noch intakt und der Topf selber ist am Boden natürlich verbrannt und hat eine etwas neue Farbe bekommen in Richtung Goldgrau. Aber der funktioniert einwandfrei und nutze diesen weiter, da mir das Aussehen egal ist.
!!! Ich kann die Qualität nur weiterempfehlen und werde in Zukunft nur noch Fissler kaufen !!!
