Having a pressure cooker as a part of your food preparation equipment offers several advantages.
Here are the six top benefits of pressure cooking:
1. Foods retain most of their nutrients and are tastier Splendid-2-in-1-Set
Eating foods that are pressure cooked offers more nutritional boost than those cooked for longer periods using traditional cookware.
The longer foods are cooked, the more nutrients are destroyed. Foods cooked in a pressure cooker are ready faster, using less liquid.
The liquid is boiled away leaving the food with most of its nutrients. The fact that foods are done in a shorter cooking time means they are less likely to lose their color and flavour, as well as minerals and vitamins that are evaporated or diluted when cooking in large quantities of water for longer periods of time.
Pressure cookers reduce cooking time by as much as 70%, which is a great reduction in the time foods normally stay on the stove boiling or steaming away the natural taste and the nutrients.
Overall, pressure cooking enhances the richness and natural flavors of foods.
2. Saves energy
Pressure cooking is far more efficient than using multiple pots on separate burners, and can result in significant energy savings.
This is because pressure cookers lend themselves to one-pot cooking recipes.
And since foods require less cooking time with pressure cookers, less energy is needed to prepare meals.
With the ever-escalating cost of electricity, we all want to find ways to save on energy and reduce the size of our monthly bill.
3. Saves time in preparing meals.
Cooking time is greatly reduced as foods cook up to 70% faster when a pressure cooker is used, making it a handy tool to quickly get the meal on the table.
We can all remember those days when we arrive home from work too tired to cook, and need to make dinner in a hurry.
On days like this, the pressure cooker
can be used to whip up a nutritious and tasty one-pot meal in mere minutes.
Throw in all the ingredients and you’ll have the dinner ready by the time you are through tidying up the kitchen and setting the table.
4. The kitchen is cooler
With summers getting warmer, as evidenced by the recent record heat waves across much of the country, reducing the heat generated by cooking is key to a cool kitchen. When cooking with regular stovetop pots and pans, the heat rises through the pan and travels upwards.
Some of this heat is directed out of the house via the stovetop fan, but heat also builds in the kitchen while six top benefits of pressure cooking
By contrast, a pressure cooker retains the heat and steam so that none of it escapes to heat up your kitchen. Reducing the amount of heat and steam results in a cooler kitchen.
5. Less cleaning is required
Cleaner Kitchen Cooking with regular stove top pots tends to leave cooking residues on the stove top and control panel as well on adjacent surfaces such as walls and counters.
Steam and oils escape from open cookware to settle on these surfaces, which usually requires some cleanup after the meal is cooked.
A pressure cooker, however, has a well secured lid that prevents any splashes or spatters from escaping the cooking vessel.
This also eliminates any boil overs which require further cleanup.
And when meal preparation is complete, there’s only one pot to wash.
6. Pressure Cookers can also be used to Preserve Food
Pressure cookers, of course, are also designed for canning foods to be stored for future use.
This is why the larger models are often referred to as ‘canners’.
Pressure canners usually develop up to 15 psi, the high-pressure needed to cook and can foods, including meats and fish.
The smaller, lighter pressure cookers can also be used for home canning but they hold fewer jars than larger models.
While having this canning facility, the smaller volume cookers are mostly used for everyday stove top meal preparation.
Gardeners, hunters and homesteaders who preserve quantities of jars of food usually prefer the largest pressure cooker/canners since more (and larger) jars can be processed per batch.
In our home we use the All American Model 921.
Most of our neighbours also prefer the same model.
Pressure cooker/canners come with detailed cooking and canning instructions which include charts of the foods which can be canned, time schedules and pressure settings for each food type.
It is essential that these instructions be followed carefully to ensure safe food preservation.
