Pressure cookers, as a healthy fast food solution, are making a serious comeback, and todayÂs Âsecond generationÂ pressure cookers are stylish, safe and far more efficient.
Chantal Roger, Manager Director of the Pressure Cooker Centre, AustraliaÂs foremost specialist in pressure cookers, said that ÂWhilst pressure cookers have been around for about 100 years, many cooks are only now discovering the many advantages offered by cooking under pressure.Â
Chantal explained that ÂTodayÂs pressure cookers have advanced pressure regulating systems, eliminating the need for a lot of water while cooking, and because pressure cooked foods require less cooking liquid, water soluble vitamins and minerals are retained and vegetables retain more flavor and color. Thus the food retains its full nutritional value but also pressure cooked food is always succulent, tender and full of flavor and pressure cooking even tenderizes the toughest meats.Â
ÂAnother important point,Â Chantal adds, Âis that because food cooks at a much faster rate, a pressure cooker means less energy is needed and therefore less heat is generated (a definite plus in the hot weather) and kitchens and apartments are certainly less affected by cooking smellsÂ. In fact, modern pressure cookers save around 60% - 70% of cooking time and thus offer a substantial saving in both time and costs.
In todayÂs world, where you are faced with busy schedules, demanding jobs and family commitments and too little time, the pressure cooker is the perfect solution for fast, delicious, nutritious and economical home-cooked meals. YouÂll find that there is no end to the variety of dishes you can cook in a pressure cooker. It really is a one-pot-does-all and because of the versatility of the pressure cooker it also makes an ideal companion for camping, caravanning and boating. Chantal points out that one quickly learns that the pressure cooker is the Âideal partner in any kitchenÂ.
Chantal also points out that there are now many makes and models available from all parts of the world, and with such a choice of features, there is virtually one for every budget. These new modern pressure cookers include several pressure settings and multiple pressure safety release systems making them 100% safe. The new stainless steel pressure cookers, with the thick aluminum 3-ply ÂsandwichÂ base, prevent burning hot spots through efficient heat distribution and with the improved vent and pressure release systems, make them easier than ever to use.
If you are looking for a piece of cookware that is fast, easy to use and healthy, nothing can compare to a pressure cooker. So whether you are a novice who wants to start pressure cooking or you just want to upgrade that old model that you may have inherited, now is definitely the time to buy a new pressure cooker.
