WMF Perfect pots: analysis of the best models
The advantages of the WMF Perfect pot over other alternatives are:
• Its higher manufacturing quality,
• its security measures and,
• Above all, the pressure at which it works, which allows us to cook up to 70% faster than we would in a traditional pot, thus saving time and energy and better preserving the flavor and properties of the cooked food.
How to choose the best WMF Perfect pot
This is the classic model, without a doubt, the most popular WMF pressure cooker on the market. Despite the fact that its design has not changed in all the years it has been on the market, WMF has been incorporating numerous advances in its operation and technology, which is why it combines a classic design and first-class features (in fact, its cooking mechanism is the one used by the rest of the WMF models).
The body of the Perfect pots is made of Cromargan 18/10 stainless steel with an internal filling mark and a TransTherm base suitable for all types of cookers, including induction.
Its handle with integrated pressure valve has a pressure indicator for precise control of cooking. It also includes a side button to safely reduce the pressure of the pot manually. We also highlight that the handle can be removed from the lid to facilitate cleaning the pot.
The Perfect pots have a double safety valve to release pressure when it is excessive (the pot warns us with a sound produced by one of the valves). It is provided with an opening on the side of the cover that allows the rubber gasket to expand in the event of overpressure if the two valves are clogged. Finally, the mechanism of the pot prevents us from opening the lid while there is pressure inside.
The Perfect Plus pressure cooker has the same mechanism and operation as the Perfect pressure cooker, but with a more modern image . Its handle has a modern and ergonomic design with rounder shapes than the Perfect model. We can say that it incorporates all the functions of the Perfect cooker with a more modern and current aesthetic.
This model has the same cooking mechanism and functions as the Perfect pot, but the multifunction handle has a completely different design.
The handle of the Perfect Pro pot has a modern design and makes a high-quality impression. It also allows us to select all the positions of the pot from a single rotary control : open and close the pot, preselect the cooking level and release the pressure of the pot. As in the previous models, it can be disassembled to clean the pot.
The Perfect Ultra model is the most exclusive of WMF. With a truly spectacular design, it includes all the functions of the other models, but it also has an integrated timer that notifies us when the food is ready.
With the extraordinary multifunction control knob of the Perfect Pro pot, we can select all the positions from a single point and we will have perfect control of the cooking time with the timer integrated in the pot itself.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All the WMF pressure cooker models that we sell in the store have a diameter of 22cm (and the height of the pot varies to offer different volumes). For this reason, the WMF glass top , which is sold separately ( here ), can fit any of the models. And it is a perfect option! If you have the glass lid, you will have 2 pots in 1: a quick pot when you use the valve lid, and a pot for traditional cooking when you use the glass lid, minimizing the space you take up in your kitchen!
