    First, just about anything you buy from Amazon for more than $35 is shipped free. The Instant Pot I'm complaining about was shipped free.

    Amazon Prime costs $99 a year. So how do you benefit unless you buy a lot of things from them each of which costs less than $35?

    I don't buy that much from Amazon. Just about everything I do buy from them costs more than $35. So what do I need with Prime?

    And if being a Prime member means I would be treated better by Amazon, then Amazon will never hear from me again. So who is the loser?

    And what other "perks" are you talking about?

    ??? I never said you were a loser. I don't think you are.

    ALL of my Prime items that I order weekly (almost)are shipped free, and are free returns.

    I get that Prime is not for you. I happen to love it.

    I hope you get satisfaction from your purchase. (the return)

    Paul Mitchell, Sebastian, Tigi/Bedhead, Redken, Moroccanoil, some styling tools, anything that is a salon exclusive product. None of that is going to be guaranteed by the manufacturer unless you buy them from exclusive salons.

    Good God man, grow a sack. The first course of action with anyone is to contact the supplier, not the shipper. You should have just had them send you a new pressure valve instead of creating a bunch of drama.

    Here's a useful resource to save to your bookmarks: When you come across new sellers with very little to no feedback always check their names here first:
    Scam Sellers - Uncovering Fraudulent Amazon Marketplace Sellers
    People tell you never trust new sellers, but I found great quality service and pricing through such and yet bait & switch or bad experiences with long time volume sellers with good feedbacks. To get their first feedbacks and profile started they might lower their price, so you can't go by the to good to be true deal type logic.
    If in doubt check the web site and email the seller questions to see if you get quick replies in proper english *L*.

    I don't buy from Amazon.

    I don't buy appliances online.

    I go to Target.

    I don't want an electric pressure cooker. Too dangerous.

    I like stove top pressure cookers.

    They are great for cooking artichokes.

    Agreed, not to mention Amazon Prime Video with many downloadable options.
