Hi Amanda,
Before you upgrade your pressure cooker, you may want to look into the EZ 
retriever (microwave) from Biogenex. We have a demo (that we are going to 
purchase). We have been getting much better looking tissue. We find it much 
more consistent with less variables. Our pressure cooker from Biocare is the 
kind that you turn the knob. Even filling the pot was a potential for 
different amounts of water being used. We don't have just one tech that does 
IHCs, so we are always trying to eliminate the potential for variables. 
Setting the microwave is pretty staight forward.
