Product Description

Product Description

The speed and convenience of pressure cooking fits in perfectly with today's busy lifestyles. Prestige Pressure Cookers take just one third of conventional cooking time, cutting cost and saving energy. Food tastes better, retaining essential nutrients and vitamins making your meal more nutritional than most convenience foods. Pressure cooking makes light work of stocks, soups, vegetables, pasta, rice, cereal, poultry, meats, fish, desserts, preserves, chutneys, relishes and curries. The Prestige Smartplus Hard Anodised Duo Pressure Cookers features a directional pressure regulator which makes the steam release process both safer and easier. It comes with two pressure settings (8lb and 12lb) for versatility when cooking. The 6.0 litre pressure cooker is made from heavy gauge hard anodized aluminium that is twice as strong as steel for incredible durability and amazing heat distribution.

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.

About Prestige: For over 50 years the Prestige brand has become synonymous with household cooking in the UK, known for it's quality, performance and value. Constantly setting the bar in colour and design, Prestige now embraces cookware, bakeware, kitchen utensils and is a growing brand in the small domestic appliance category.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Pressure Cooker 8 Jan 2007
This is a wonderful pressure cooker; easy to use whilst producing tender mouth watering food, especially chicken, lamb and beef dishes.

The hard anodized aluminium is an excellent heat conductor which helps food to remain hot inside the closed pressure cooker for a long time after the heat source has been turned off.

Very highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars great pressure cooker 29 Mar 2009
This is great. I was concerned as I've only had stainless steel before but I like the anodised finish as it looks smart and it makes it more stick-proof inside. I've had pressure cookers for the last 24 years and have used them almost daily and this is one of the best.

It is easy to use and easy to wash, and does not stick, even when you forget to stop the cooking in time.

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy to use non stick cooker 14 Oct 2011
Verified Purchase
I bought this for my parents' Christmas present and I got to try it out this week.

The anodised pan seems sturdy overall although the outside of it showed scratches through to the metal after only 2 uses, and no one can remember scratching it on anything! It has a shiny metal lid so you have to be careful when storing it so as not to damage the surface. The guage for selecting the pressure and for letting off steam feels loose and jiggly, it works but the plastic is cheap and made me feel a bit nervous. The thing that made me feel the most nervous was the handle. You can easily tell when it has locked because a little dial moves over to the right, but the handle on the lid doesn't really match up tightly to the handle on the base. It moved around from side to side and it made me wonder whether I had locked the lid properly. It was on correctly but it just didn't feel like it was!

I used it to brown foods before adding liquid and bringing it up to pressure. When at pressure it doesn't leak much, just a tiny dribble of water next to the handle and it is fairly quiet, it makes a low hiss while cooking. The pressure indicator is a little red button which pops up very obviously so you can't miss it. When it is time to open the lid you can release steam by turning the jiggly knob thing to the picture of the steam cloud and it shoots out the steam in a long jet sideways. It doesn't release it near your hand so in that respect it is very safe. It was overall very easy to use.
It is easy to clean, although already looked slightly worn after a few uses.

Food cooks quickly and tastes great. No sticking!

4.0 out of 5 stars Pressure cooker 19 Aug 2009
I'm really pleased with my new pressure cooker. It's very easy to use and very easy to clean. However, I miss the fact it hasn't got a timer but manage with the automatic timer on my cooker so not a real problem.

At the moment there is a notice on the Prestige website where they are doing a recall of their products due to steam release problems.
Though this product was not mentioned, we experienced the same very dangerous build up of steam & the pressure cooker lid DID explode leaving a mess in the kitchen & narrowly missed my elderly disabled mum by inches.
Prestige did not want to know at all. I pushed for a replacement lid, it came back with a screw loose inside & me being told WE were responsible for the explosion despite a recall being put into place.
I would never buy from Prestige again.

Prestige Smartplus Hard Anodised Duo Pressure Cooker, 6 Litre
We had a Prestige Pressure Cooker for a wedding present over 22yrs ago and it is still usable but we wanted to update it with a modern version. Wow! It gets up to pressure so much quicker than our last one and you can cook anything in them. I would throughly recommend this item to anyone who has a busy life but likes to cook.
