However, the tapering base has one advantage.  The conical shape facilitates evaporation. When making a sauce, post-pressure cooking, the liquid can be reduced faster in the Vitavit® than in straight sided cookers.

Conical Base – The opening is wider than the bottom – making storage of multiple  pressure cookers of the same model easy – but reducing cooking surface.

Integrated Removable Timer – Digital timer, with visual light indicators beeps when the cooker has reached pressure and automatically starts counting the cooking time when the pot has reached pressure.

Removable Handle –The whole handle mechanism can be removed from the lid so that it can be washed in the dishwasher – but require re-tightening before each use.

Lid Placement Guide- Facilitating correct lid position for easy placement.

Multi-function Pressure Selector and Signal – The pressure regulator, and its housing, are all plastic and silicone. Selection options include High Pressure (2), Low Pressure (1), No Pressure and Pressure Release.

Capacity Marks and Measurement Lines – Lines indicate the Minimum, 1/3, 1/2 and Maximum Capacity.  Measurement lines in 1 liter increments are also included.

What is the key differences – Fissler Vitaquick vs Vitavit?

Conventional pressure cooker displays only indicate when Setting 1 or Setting 2 has been reached (vitaquick® series). The traffic light display (Available on the Fissler vitavit® series) indicates when you have to reduce the heat, when the optimal cooking temperature has been reached and when the temperature in the pot is either too high or too low.

I remember wrestling with the same question, and now see that the only obvious difference is a dial on the Vitavit that helps you select low pressure (fish and vegetables) or high (everything else). Also, that knob pops out to a yellow-green-red configuration to let you know if the pressure has been achieved or needs to be lowered. I wonder if they’re phasing out the Vitavit; I could only find it on the Williams-Sonoma website. They’ve got a good video tutorial there on it that will help show you that difference.

The other features seem to be the same, including the very nice locking handle mechanism. But that elongating knob differs from the Vitaquick in that the Vitaquick doesn’t have different settings. It just has four rings on the knob that go from blue to white to blue and then white again, depending on whether you’re at adequate pressure or need to keep raising it for each setting. I’ve been using the Vitaquick just fine this way. If you end up getting a Vitavit, let me know how it works.
