Product Description

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prestige Hi Dome 5 Sep 2009
I have used pressure cookers for over 40 years. I have had various makes and various types of Prestige Pressure cookers. but I think the Prestige 6 ltr Hi Dome is the best of all. It is so versatile It can be used for batch cooking and for families. It can also be used for small amounts. It is easy to use and easy to clean.

This is my second pressure cooker in thirty five years. Quality item. Only reason I had to buy a new one is because my daughter borrowed my one and I haven't seen it since. Great buy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great buy to attain increased energy efficiency 22 Mar 2013
Verified Purchase
It's a little large for just 2 people. It's a little heavy for elderlies. It's a little scary if you've not used a pressure cooker before. But these trivialities melt into oblivion when set against the wonderful advantages of fast, economical cooking and luscious taste and texture retention. My wife loves it for making jams and marmalades.
I should have bought one years ago!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simple, lightweight and gives you 15 psi 31 Oct 2013
By Iveljay
Verified Purchase
This is not my first pressure cooker, however, it has many benefits compared to some others you can buy:

1. It is a lot lighter than stainless steel - this is quite significant, though of course if it is filled up to its limit the difference is obviously not as great.
2. Most pressure cooker recipe books assume a high pressure of 15 psi, a lot of the domestic cookers available that I have come across these days, only achieve 12 psi, needing about 20% additional cooking time.
3. Pressure is achieved by the old fashioned weight system, you do not have to keep an eye on coloured bands, it is either up to pressure or it isn't - simple.
4. It comes with a simple bent wire trivet - not as good as my granny used to have but it does the job and the perforated steamer with dividers is actually quite good.
5. The instruction book is also quite good and includes hints, useful info and some recipes that is enough to get you going and allow you to convert your favourite stews etc., to pressure cooking - it does far more than stews, but I found that they are good to start with.
6. The pressure regulation sytem is far less fragile than on some other inexpensive pressure cookers.
7. It is a fraction of the cost of most stainless steel cookers, and will cook at least as well if not better than most.

The downsides:
1. It is aluminium which is easier to damage than steel, putting away leaving water in the base will cause pitting for instance, avoided by drying it.
2. It may stain - but this can be cleaned off.
3. It has to be hand washed.
4. There is no pressure quick release, you use the cold water method.

There may be other pros & cons, but these stick out. I also have WMF stainless steel cookers which I also recommend, but are far more expensive and heavy, but the base and lid minus the handle are dishwasher safe. Both designs do the job - what more can you ask.

5.0 out of 5 stars Prestige Hi Dome Pressure Cooker 28 May 2009
Having ' borrowed ' my mum's old pressure cooker for years I thought it was time to give it back!! I read all the options and this one seemed the best one for a family.
I can't recommend it enough, big enough to do a huge gammon steak, yet quick and easy when making my veggie daughter her soups.
It's easy to use, easy to clean. It's a solid all rounder I couldn't do without.
My mum is now after a smaller model!!
