Does this nickle in stainless steel pressure cookers leach into foods?

I have nickle allergy which is triggered when stainless steel touches my skin, most notable on belts. Glasses that are titanium nickle hybrid for some reason doesn't react, this is the FLexon memory metal. I'm looking to get a pressure cooker but most decent sized ones are stainless stell with a 18:10 ratio of chromium and nickle. THere is is a Silit model which is ceramic based but is very expensive and is only about 7 liters which I doubt you can use that much when you cook. 

Does the nickle in the stainless steel trigger allergic reactions when you eat the food?

I have a pretty significant nickel allergy--I react to everything like jewelry, snaps on clothing, glasses frames, etc., but no problems with the stainless steel insert in my electric pressure cooker.

Is the insert the cooking area where the food sits?

I tend to get gas and bloating when I eat out even foods that don't cause reaction usually. But it could be the oil as well they use at restaurants. I have used stainless steel pots and cutlery and the only consistent rash I have tends to appear around the belly button, but its not always there. From what I have read about stainless steel it can be okay if its not scoured with an SOS pad, that triggers the nickle to leak out.
