Pressure cooker choice

Currently I have a 4 qt aluminium Mirro. It is 4 to 5 years old and is starting to show signs of galvanic corrosion. The handle falling off when the bolt corroded through was my first clue.

I have an opportunity to get one from the USA to replace it this month so what is the best buy.

In the past I liked the aluminium ones as the heat distribution is better but people say that the new stainless steel ones with the composite base incorporating some aluminium do just as well.

So should I go for aluminium or composite stainless?

Is there much to choose between the different brands on offer?

Does anyone have a recommendation?
