The keyword here is “stainless steel”, because if you look at many pressure cookers, the inner pot is made of aluminum alloy. The bad thing about aluminum is that it is linked to Alzheimer’s disease. For instance, this medical paper states that “Immediate steps should be taken to lessen human exposure to Al (aluminum), which may be the single most aggravating and avoidable factor related to AD (Alzheimer’s disease).”
Philips makes one of the best brands of pressure cookers, including the famous HD2137 model which is sold in Singapore. It can be bought almost anywhere, including the Philips Qoo10 official store:
The default Philips pressure cooker, however, comes with aluminum inner pot, no matter which model. Fortunately, there is a solution, which is to buy the Stainless Steel Inner Pot from the official Philips website.
The stainless steel inner pot is suitable for the following models: HD2137, HD2237, HD2178, HD2145. It is quite pricey at $59 (Singapore dollars), but I think it is worth it considering that it should last for a lifetime or at least a long time.
Interestingly, Philips sells these pressure cooker models mainly to Asian market. I don’t find them in the American Amazon.com website. Perhaps the American diet (steak, burgers, fries) don’t really require the pressure cooker? I am not sure.
