This newly designed model offers exclusive additional functions such as the safety loop handle, adjustable steam discharge, and a measuring scale.

An absolute highlight of the Vitavit Premium is the innovative steam cooking function. It works without pressure and lets you cook individually while taking a look, stirring and seasoning at any time.

The extensive basic features of this model include not only the unique positioning aid, two adjustable cooking levels, and the locking indicator, but also the removable handle. The cooking display with a traffic light function informs you when the stove can be turned down, the cooking time begins or the temperature in the cooker is too high.

New removable Control Valve with Traffic Light indicator:

The new Traffic Light Indicator on the control valve now makes cooking with the pressure cooker clear and safe and helps to regulate your energy use much more efficient.

Yellow = The stove can now be turned down

Green = The set temperature has been reached and the cooking time begins

Red = The temperature is too high

The new removable Control Valve is also equipped with a vent for automatic pressure limitation (pressure guard) as well as with de-pressurizing setting and gradual pressure release.

Easy positioning:

Thanks to a metal tab on the lid, it is extremely easy to place the lid in the right position. And thanks to the newly designed rim of the pot, closing the cooker is also as easy as A, B, C.

Secure Auto-Lock feature:

Our new VITAVIT PREMIUM is equipped with an upgraded auto-locking handle with a visual indicator. The handle of the VITAVIT pressure cooker will indicate that the cooker is closed correctly and securely locked with an audible click and a special color display in the handle which switches from red to green. Only then will the VITAVIT PREMIUM allow the pressure to be built.

Three cooking levels:

Apart from the two usual cooking levels, the VITAVIT PREMIUM offers an innovative steam cooking function. It works without pressure: You can take a look, stir and season at any time.

Removable Loop handle for safe handling:

The Vitavit Premium is fitted with an economical loop handle allowing for safe handling even with wet or greasy hands. The handle is also removable making the Vitavit much easier to clean and store. With the handle out of the way = you can now stack several pots into each other for space-saving storage.

Steam discharge function:

The special comfort steam discharge function allows you to precisely control the escape of the steam. This does make it no longer necessary to hold the slide manually.

Energy-saving "All-Stove" CookStar base for optimal heat distribution:

The  CookStar all-stove base, which is comprised of a pure aluminum core and high-quality 18/10 stainless steel, ensures that the base that will never separate or warp. The energy-saving base also provides quick optimal heat distribution, diffusion, and storage without any hot spots.

Practical filling level indicator:

Silent with no-steam & no-smell pressure cooking:

No sound, no steam and no smell - Vitaquick pressure cookers are unique in that they are completely silent. No rattling or hissing while cooking. All cooking odors stay inside the pressure cooker since no steam escapes during the cooking process.

A: NO - you can NOT deep-fry under pressure. Foods can ONLY be deep-fried in the pressure cooker WITHOUT the lid!


If you decide to deep-fry in the cooker without the lid make sure that the pot you use is high enough to prevent burns caused by foaming or spattering oil.

- Fill the cooker at most half full (1/2 marking) with fat
- Heat the fat at medium. Do not overheat it

NEVER cover the cooker while deep frying

 

Q: Is it possible to prepare dishes other than stews or potato on a Fissler pressure cooker?

Q: I have stains on my pressure cooker. What happened and what can I do?

A: These are generally discolorations which result from substances in the water being absorbed into the passive film of the stainless steel. Cleansers which contain a lot of basic silicates and phosphates can also produce such discolorations in stainless steel. Adding salt to water which has not yet come to the boil can also produce deposits of salt crystals on the bottom of the pot. The salt then reacts with the stainless steel, forming little white spots on the bottom of the pot. Discolorations can also be produced if stainless steel cookware is placed on a burner that is already very hot. The discolorations can easily be removed with Fissler Stainless Steel Cleanser.

 

Q: I think my pressure cooker is not working correctly anymore. What can I do?

A: You can consult the chapter " Questions and answers regarding your pressure cooker" in your manual. If you can find a solution, please contact us and we provide you with the phone number for technical support.
