About Pressure Cookers
In addition to offering a whole host of features such as the ability to minimise cooking times while retaining the goodness of your food, the majority of pressure cookers available are suitable for use with most types of hobs and come complete with different pressure settings.
Types of Pressure Cookers
Pressure Cookers are typically available in two different types; electric and hob.
Hob pressure cookers are the most common type available. As it sounds, they go on your hob like a normal saucepan and have a lid which seals into place, locking in the pressure and all the goodness.
Alternatively, an electric pressure cooker is very similar to a slow cooker. They are fully self-contained and plug into the mains which enables you to put it away and save counter space!
If you’re on a budget but still want to benefit from having delicious meals from a pressure cooker, you can even pick up a microwave pressure cooker! Perfect for making smaller meals in the blink of an eye!
The Advantages Of Using A Pressure Cooker
Using a pressure cooker over other methods of cooking food has loads of advantages. If you’re in doubt over whether you definitely want to add one to your selection of kitchen tools, take a look at the following five points to see the main advantages of owning one.
Cooking food in a pressure cooker helps to retain the nutritional value. Other methods of cooking can make your food lose essential vitamins and minerals into the water or just by taking longer to cook.
It can cut the cooking time down by a lot. Using a pressure cooker can cut the cooking time of your food down by up to 70%! Due to this as well, the shorter cooking time will contribute to less loss of nutrients and colour of your food!
Because pressure cookers are ideal for one-pot recipes, they can save you a lot of energy both in terms of your physical energy and electricity or gas.
No one enjoys washing up tonnes of pots and pans. Thankfully, a pressure cooker is easy to clean and because you’re more likely to have cooked an entire meal in the one pot, there is less cleaning up to do afterwards! Perfect!
There is nothing worse than slaving over a hot stove in the summer during a heatwave. Because you’ll be less likely to be using all four burners and your oven when cooking in a pressure cooker, you’ll find that the kitchen will be much cooler as well. Phew!
