Dear Santa, I want a Pressure Cooker. I can purchase retail or wholesale restaurant supply with a tax ID. Which one do I want?

I had a bad experience some years back when an espresso maker exploded in my kitchen, narrowly missing injuring me and my guests. I have an irrational fear of Pressure Cookers now, but I can no longer live without one.
I want one that is heavy duty, not aluminum, with bits that will not fail. Fancy is not better. Case in point is the heavy duty sautoir pan I got from a restaurant supply years ago that is comparable in look and performance to my other professional grade All Clad pans (which I have not seen on the market in years, their stuff is not as it used to be.)
Similarly to my All Clad experience, my original titanium Scan Pan is ABOVE the shite quality they are selling now as the "original" Scan Pan.
The Pressure Cooker I am looking for may be a luxury brand, or it may be an "off" brand, or only a restaurant wholesale available brand.
I have a business tax ID and am capable of purchasing from professional only restaurant supply, if that is an issue.
I am looking for safety and quality, not bells and whistles.
If you use it regularly and love it - please recommend it!
Santa thanks you!
