PRINCIPLES OF PRESSURE COOKING Under normal conditions water boils at a temperature of 100°C (212°F).This temperature is dictated by atmospheric pressure and cannot increase no matter how long boiling continues. The weight on your. Prestige Cooker increases the pressure inside the cooker which in turn raises the temperature at which the liquid boils. The result is faster cooking time because of the higher temperature obtained and at the same time the steam is forced through the food, cooking and tenderising it. The 12 lb weight supplied with your cooker is set to achieve a temperature of 117°C which is ideal for the majority of daily recipes.
