Just don't knock it around and you're fine. I have a six quart Presto and never had a problem. It sure sounds scarey, hissing and spitting on the stove like a rattlesnake. Now, I would only use it on a boat if she were completely still, at anchor, even though I have a gimballed stove with pot keeper. Anyway, you're going to like the results you get from the cooker and you save tons of time. I've done some great stews, soups and sauces. I can cook a whole chicken off the bone in about 20 minutes.
Upgraded to an all electric Fagor cooker, which is a slow cooker, browner, warmer, rice cooker, and pressure cooker. You hear nothing as it works and it shuts down from pressure cooker to warming mode after the cycle. I love the thing and have incorporated it into my daily culinary madness.
I will try the Presto pressure cooker sometime this Summer out on the boat, again, only when anchored.
