I would not want to take a chance with a cheap pressure cooker.  Cheap blender, yes but the cheap pressure cooker can seriously harm you.  It's cheap for a reason.

^^^^
It has a vent at the top; on that sits a poppet or weight, which allows the vent to let steam escape at a preset pressure determined by the weight.
It's stupid simple, and almost fool-proof, not to say the right fool might not injure him/herself dropping it on their foot.
If something like Pressure Cooker worries you, you probably should stop even standing near an *infernal* combustion vehicle powered by (highly flammable!) gasoline.
They have huge tanks of the stuff inside.  DON'T ride in one! 
Wear a bike-helmet when you walk, as your head is only 3-4 inches lower than it would be if you were riding a bike. 
Who knows what could happen if you were to trip and fall. 
Good luck!

I bet this is a 5 or 10 pound cooker. The good ones are typically at 15. It would take altering/sealing up the cooker to make it explode.

Good deal - just so you know, it is aluminium and not SS.

Gasoline is flamable but not explosive unlike fuel gases (propane, butane etc) that can explode because they are under pressure (not referring to the Queen song )

Accidents from pressure cooker explosions (during cooking) are not uncommon. Never underestimate the power of steam, it can haul locomotives.

Be sure any pressure cooker is UL certified for safety.  Their standards require the cooker to have an interlock that prevents opening the lid while it's under pressure, and there have to be at least 3 pressure relief mechanisms -- the primary one (usually a weight, will dance around during cooking), a backup (spring-loaded), and a lid gasket designed to bulge out at the side if the pressure gets too high.  In the 1920s or 1930s, one of my ancestors was injured when a pressure cooker with only one pressure relief mechanism ruptured.

  Just wondering, but why will aluminum damage it but harder stainless steel won't?

  From the GE websiteHeavy-Weight Aluminum cookware is also recommended. It conducts heat faster than other metals and cooks evenly. Aluminum residue sometimes appears as scratches on the cooktop, but these can be removed if cleaned immediately. But some manufacturers say no to aluminum.

Aluminum is not linked to Alzheimer anymore. So using aluminum cookware should be fine, especially compared to the amount used in baking powder.
