Not too sure what you mean by place marking, as I was asking a genuine question.
Anyway I went for an amazon basics pressure cooker.
Arrived today. First impressions are the manual is useless. It basically says I have a pressure cooker with umpteen functions but no guides on how to cook anything.
Went to the Pressure King Pro website and found recipes on there, so will try one of these next week.

Bought mine in January and it stopped working after 3 uses. Piece of shite.

I have had a pressure king pro for around 5 years. I regularly cook chicken breasts in it, cut the packet open, throw them in, add a small amount of water, sometimes garlic and/or herbs, spices whatever is in kitchen cook on casserole option for 9 minutes.

I let the meat cool and tear apart removing touch pieces and I love not having raw meat anywhere around the kitchen.

I also make curries in the same bowl, put spices and small amount of oil in and set to heat with lid off, stir around, then stick cooked chicken, onion, passata and peppers in. Lid on and 5 minutes it is done.

We got ours in October and it has been fantastic. We cook a lot of Pakistani food in there, whole meal rice is super fluffy and light, beans/lentils very easy to cook. I like the fact it’s not just a pressure cooker.

I've done two recipes so far. A bolognese and an arroz caldoso, which I finished off in a frying pan to make it more paella like. the kids loved it and wanted seconds.
One thing I would say is that the amazon basics pressure cooker doesn't actually come with any meaningful instructions. It basically tells you its got this function or that function and thats it. A recipe book would have been nice.

Had to send the pressure cook back as it developed a high pitched whistling. amazon changed it without any hassle. New one doesn't whistle so far.

Loved mine until I broke it (entirely through own stupidity) voiding the warranty blush
