Pressure cooking is a fast and easy way to prepare food. When the pressure is on to eat right, you can't cook healthier, tastier, or faster than in the pressure cooker. Flavorful meals featuring fish, chicken, fresh vegetables, rice, and legumes cook to perfection in minutes. Plus, pressure cooking makes it easy for even the busiest cooks to prepare meals from scratch and take advantage of the "fresh is best" philosophy of cooking with our high quality, 3.5 litre stainless steel Prestige pressure cooker.
The pressure cooker . . .
Foods cook three to ten times faster than with ordinary cooking methods.
Superfast cooking means lower fuel bills and more for your money at the supermarket. It preserves the flavors, colors and valuable nutrients of the foods you buy, plus it turns budget cuts of meat into tender, tasty meals.
Because foods cook quickly in an almost airless environment with just a little liquid, precious vitamins and minerals aren't boiled away.
Convenience and versatility mean you can prepare everything from a simple entree to a complete gourmet meal in minutes.
It's even good for the environment, because reduced cooking times conserve energy.
And it's simple, too!
Here's how pressure cooking works. When water (or any liquid) boils, it produces steam. A tightly-sealed pressure cooker traps this steam, which then builds pressure inside the cooker. Under pressure, cooking temperatures can be raised significantly higher than possible under normal conditions. The super-heated steam created by these higher temperatures cooks foods quickly, evenly, deliciously. It's that simple!
