The Pressure Cooker
For Speed of Cooking - For Safety in Use - For Energy Savings
A whole "roast" chicken in only 20 minutes? Homemade soup in under 12? Hot, fresh, ready-to-serve vegetables in one to four? Yes, all of that is possible with a pressure cooker. Pressure cooking is not only fast and easy, it also safely preserves flavors and nutrients. Your pressure cooker can be used for soups, sauces, vegetables and meats. Pressure cooked food is cooked above the boiling point of water, killing more germs. A sealed pressure cooker keeps most of the heat in, so you're heating your food and not the kitchen. The speed of a pressure cooker also means that less energy is required to generate that cooking heat in the first place. Pressure cookers solve problems. Pressure cooking, in fact, has become "the" answer in a great many homes.

All-American Combo Pressure Cookers / Pressure Canners. Rated as "Best Buy" by a number of reviewers, The All-American Pressure Canner / Pressure Cooker is a wonderful choice should you wish to take advantage of the benefits of pressure canning with the option of using these units as a pressure cooker as well. Well designed and very sturdy tthe All-American canner normally lasts for years. The steel on steel sealing system eliminates the periodic need to replace rubber sealing rings. One should take into account, however, that becuase of its large size, considered by many to be an advantage, there is some weight to this particular line of cookware. The manufacturer warns that they are not recommended for ceramic or glass top ranges.

Manufactured by WAFCO, the same firm that produces the bigger All-American Pressure Cooker / Pressure Canner, the Chef's Design Pressure Cooker is constructed of 18/10 stainless steel and features a 10-year limited warranty. The included tempered glass lid allows the unit to be used as a simple saucepan as well as a pressure cooker - hence the dual functioning. Unlike its All-American cousin, the Chef's Design Pressure Cooker is suitable for use on all heat sources, including induction, gas, electric, ceramic and halogen.
The Fagor Choice: Pressure Cooker or Pressure Cooker Canner. Fagor Pressure Cookers get consistently high reviews.

A No. 1 rating in a ConumerSearch review concludes, "The solidly built Fagor Duo 8-Quart earns high marks for its cooking performance." If you are looking for quiet, safe and convenient operation, you need look no further than the Fagor Duo. Choose from the 8 qt. model of the slightly larger 10 qt. Fagor Duo Pressure Cooker that that is the centerpiece of their canning set (which inlcudes a selection of canning tools - as shown). Both units reflect the superior Fagor quality, work on smooth or regular cook tops, and, for such a highy rated pressure cooker, can be said to be very reasonably priced.

Introducing the "Sizzle" Cooker from B/R/K. The German made Sizzle Cookers are pressure cookers, but you might say they are pressure cookers plus. Yes, they can be used for straight forward pressure cooking, but they can also be used to simply boil or steam. In addition, even if being used as a pressure cooker, at any point during the cooking process you can quickly and easily remove the lid to taste, season or add extra ingredients. Then, just as easily, the lid can be snapped back on, pressure is quickly reestablished and the cooking continues. Opening and closing can add slightly to the overall cooking time, for it is the slight over-pressure that makes faster cooking a reality, and having to reestablish that can understandably delay things slightlyt, but the delay is small and the versatility is wonderful. Three colors and four sizes provides lots of choice. Sizzle provides a quality product at a reasonable price, and, like any pressure cooker, allows the user to cook both healthier and faster.

Electric Pressure Cookers. Pressure cooking does not need to be restricted to stove top cooking. Electric pressure cookers do not have the durability of standard pressure cookers. Electronic components and heating elements can wear out, but they do add versatility. Electric or electronic pressure cookers are typically multi-function appliances. Watch for units that will serve as pressure cookers, but that can also be used for slow cooking, cooking rice, steaming vegetables, boiling pasta or even browning meats. Watch, too, for timed cooking, delayed starts and programmable presets. Pricing is reasonable as well.
