But I will keep that in mind and look into possibly getting one with a little research. And, I don't think I can PM yet - not enough posts!
I hope you do look into buying one. The new ones (in the last 30 years) are VERY safe. I have 3. One is a Presto brand and is BIG. I also have one that is made by Fagor, and one that is a Futura. They all have lids that slide under some sort of a safety bar, and CANNOT build pressure at all if the lid isn't on right.

I lived in Colorado at high elevations and the pressure cookers were a life saver. Without one boiling potatoes that takes 30 minutes at sea level too about an hour and 15 minutes
