| 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 cook control 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 tenderizing it.
The Advantages of Pressure Cooking:
Speed: because of the high temperatures used in Pressure Cooking, foods are cooked very fast. Generally foods cooked in a pressure cooker will take 1/3 of the normal cooking time.
Nutritional Value: loss of nutrients is reduced to a minimum from the short cooking times.
Convenience: by using a pressure cooker to cook a complete meal or several foods at once, fewer saucepans are needed saving space in the cupboard and time washing up.
Economy: fuel is saved, as cooking times are so quick and only one heating area is used.
Versatility: delicious recipes can be cooked: from more traditional stocks, soups, casseroles, pasta, rice,cereals, pulses, fish, and vegetables.
