Most of the time when we think of pressure cooking, we think of names like Fagor and Instant Pot, names we are familiar with. We don’t often take a look at some of the smaller names to see if they may be worth supporting, simply because we don’t know them.
It is usually a safer option.
This article will be going over the WMF Perfect Plus and comparing it to the Fagor Duo Stovetop pressure cooker. Maybe after this article, you will consider some cookers you may not have known about.
Hopefully, after reading this article you will consider some alternatives you may not have before so that you can get a fair bargain later on.
Both of these cookers are worth the buy in my opinion. They offer a lot and don’t charge as much as some other cookers are priced for what they do. It is worth noting, however, that the WMF Perfect Plus is the more expensive of the two, and is fairly similar to the Perfect Pro.
But having said that, let’s look at how these cookers are different so we can understand why they are priced where they are.
The WMF Perfect Plus Vs the Fagor Duo Pressure Cooker
So how are they different from one another?
- The WMF Perfect Plus is more expensive.
- The Fagor Duo is Dishwasher Safe.
- The Fagor Duo has brand trust because it is the more popular of the two.
- The Functions of each size of the Fagor Duo vary from one another.
- The WMF perfect Plus has a removable, flame resistant handle to make it easy to store and safe on all surfaces.
So these two as you can see have some fairly significant differences, for most people, you may look into buying the Fagor Duo because it is somewhat cheaper than the WMF cooker.
However, the WMF does have quite a few things that make it safer and more convenient to use than the Fagor Duo.
But it can be hard to tell which to buy from the differences alone. Let’s look at both of these cookers to determine why one is better than the other. We’ll start with the WMF Perfect Plus.
The WMF Perfect Plus
The WMF Perfect Plus is one of the cheaper models made by WMF. It comes in 5 different sizes to offer an array of options to help fit any consumers needs.
It has many things that make it feel similar to the Perfect Pro, and in many cases, it really is similar. WMF had similarity in mind when making these products, trying to add small adjustments with each model, both in function and price.
This cooker features many things;
- A removable handle for easy storage.
- The removable handle, as well as the side handle, are flame resistant, making it an ideal choice for anyone using a stove that lets off a lot of flames.
- This cooker comes with an inside measurement scale to help prevent overfilling or underfilling the pot.
- This cooker is also made from 18/10 Stainless Steel, which is a highly durable metal that helps the heat spread evenly throughout the pot. Although, being steel, this pot is quite heavy, especially the larger sizes.
You can’t really go wrong with any of their cookers. They are reasonably priced, although they are by no means the cheapest on the market.
Albeit a smaller name, I would definitely consider purchasing this cooker if I was looking for a new one.
The Fagor Duo
The Fagor Duo pressure cooker is one of the most widely used stovetop pressure cookers. It is a versatile cooker and provides some neat functionality that you won’t get out of a standard pressure cooker.
This cooker has many options on it such as multiple pressure settings and variable sizes. Not to mention the safety mechanism on the lid to keep it locked in place. This is nice because it keeps the lid from accidentally popping off while the cooker is pressurized.
The Low-pressure settings are 8psi while the high pressure is 15psi.
Another thing to note about the Duo cooker is its reliability. This cooker has a ten-year warranty and was voted best buy for stovetop cookers in some of the leading culinary magazines and shows.
This cooker will help with cost effectiveness. They last a very long lasting lifespan and as long as you don’t leave it on the burner they won’t be ruined.
The different sizes;
- 8-quart;family size.
- 10-quart; pressure canning available.
Back to what I mentioned earlier; The Duo has 4 sizes. The 4-quart and the 6-quart are, mostly, made from the same material as the other two cookers. 18/10 stainless steel, the differences is that the 4 and 6-quart have an extra outer aluminum ‘sandwiched’ coating. This helps ensure that these smaller cookers are able to spread out the heat more evenly without burning the food or the pot.
As you can see, this cooker is quite useful and is a nice addition to any household. For most families, the 8-quart model will be a perfect balance. It is large enough to feed a whole family and is still small enough to allow for easy cleaning and storage.
What’s The Verdict?
Overall, I think that the Fagor Duo is gonna be more worth the money in the long run. It is cheaper than the Perfect Plus.
It also has similar functions to the Perfect Pro. If you were going to go with WMF I would have to recommend the WMF Perfect Pro rather than that as they are almost the same price and WMF Perfect Pro has much more functionality than the Perfect Plus.
But the Fagor Duo honestly trumps them both as it is more affordable and is just overall the better option. Not to say the other two are not worth it, but for the price, it is a better choice to go Fagor.
