[Walmart] Hawkins Classic Model Stove Top Pressure Cookers price reduced for 1.5-L, 2-L and 3.5-L cookers

Stove top pressure cooker. Cook beans from scratch, and stews, chili and soups. Energy efficient due to shorter cooking times. Probably not suitable for jasmine rice, it's aluminum base and you're gonna end up with sticky and waste of rice. Buy a rice cooker for cooking rice.
Found the Hawkins Classic Pressure Cookers are price reduced on Walmart.ca. It's sold by a 3rd party, but not Walmart. However, the prices of these items are cheaper than at amazon.ca

You can still cook long grain jasmin rice without the lid locked down to engage the pressure. You just cook the rice like you would on the stove with a normal pot and lid.

Here is how I cook my rice on the stove. Mind you I'm on an electric stove so for those with gas/coals/fire adjust accordingly:


1. Wash 1 cup rice (or more) rice a few times till the rice water is not as cloudy. Some would wash till clear water but I've never had any issues with my way.


2. Add rice plus 1 cup of water (or more if you have more rice as it should be 1 cup rice to 1 cup water)


3. Bring rice to a boil


4. Turn stove to electric stove number 2 simmer and put the lid on the pot (in this case do not lock it down as you don't want to engage the pressure lock)


5. Set timer for 10mins on simmer


6.When timer beeps, turn off heat, set timer for 10mins. Important!! DO NOT OPEN LID FOR 10MINS.


7. When the rice is ready just stir and fluff up the rice. The rice comes out perfect each time.


Something to note that should be obvious but just in case someone is new to cooking rice is that rice WILL DOUBLE IN VOLUME. So adjust to how much you want to cook so you don't end up with your lid being lifted up by the cooked rice. I mainly cook long grain jasmine rice be it Ox Head brand or Rooster or etc and that method works well. The only difference is you may have to add a little extra water (like 1/5th of a cup) as each crop/harvest/brand may use a little extra water. When you've cooked enough rice you'll notice that.

Bonus protip:

If you're cooking rice add a couple raw eggs in when the water is cold and when the rice is done you will have nice hard boiled eggs tho you will have to take note the spacing as the eggs will take up space as the rice expands.


Thanks OP for your post. The smaller 1.5qt size is good for backpacking/camping/emergency cook kit should fuel be scarce.

10$ shipping.
Seems you have to buy 100$ worth to get free shipping from that 3rd party seller.

But... Who uses aluminum anymore for home use, when you can buy stainless for a similar price?

No reason you can't use another container inside.
Although 3.5L is a bit small and everything below is even moreso.

Ironically I use a 3qt Instant Pot pot inside my 6qt stovetop pressure cooker for rice.

Stovetop pressure cooker and instant pot have different uses. I have a couple of kuhn rikon stovetop pressure cookers to use for recipes that require some sautéing and browning before pressure cooking, and use instant pot for one step set n forget recipes. They’re all great.

I was interested in this deal until I saw that these are made from aluminum. I prefer stainless steel.
