I'm very impressed with the quality and button layout. The water test went fine. You can hear somewhat of pressure building but in general is a quiet device. The inner lid has a 'plate' that the silicone ring attaches to. The 'plate', ring, anti- block shield and float valve all come off and replace easily for routine cleaning.Be careful when removing them for cleaning that you don't drop the little pieces and loose. Love that it comes with a stainless inner pot. It comes with plastic rice sloon and measure cup. No trivet comes with it.I suggest purchase one so eggs, etc. can be cooked. Manual is easy to follow. It even has a condensation collector.
