What Makes a Strong Pressure Cooker

By Staci Poblete

If you are eager about buying a pressure cooker you certainly want to make sure you get a good one. After all, you are going to put a sealed cooking pot on a hot kitchen stove where it will build up immense steam pressure. Everything is going according to plan, isn’t it? The fact is that it is safe to use pressure cookers, which are a useful tool in the kitchen and have been around for several years. Here are some of the features you should consider.


While there are many materials for cookware when it comes to pressure cookers look for stainless steel. While there are other materials that are superior in conducting heat, none are as durable as stainless steel. You could also go for a combination of materials. It is advisable to go for an aluminum base or core.

Protection Features

Be sure any pressure cooker you purchase comes with sturdy lid locks. As its name suggests a pressure cooker will be under pressure. You do not want a latch to come loose and explode the contents of your lunch all over the kitchen. However, you also do not want a latch that is difficult to use. Also see to it that your pressure cooker has safety parts to monitor the pressure and keep it from building beyond the recommended level.

Electric Or Stove Top

Generally, everyone prefers to buy stove top pressure cookers. The cooker’s composition plays an important role in defining this bias – the electric variety are usually made from aluminum. One will likely think that electric pressure cookers are better since aluminum is a better heat conductor than stainless steel. However, aluminum has a drawback – it can change the food’s taste if it has acidic ingredients. That is why people choose stove top pressure cookers over electric cookers.

The Need For A Pressure Cooker

You are possibly wondering whether you really need to have a pressure cooker. Why not just use a microwave oven. There is no denying the fact that one can cook food faster with a microwave. What you get from a pressure cooker that you will not obtain from a microwave oven is flavor. By containing the heat and steam within itself, a pressure cooker establishes a sauna-like atmosphere. This will hold the flavor and nutrients. The bottom line is that you will have tastier and healthier food on your dining table.

Safety Apprehensions

After considering everything, you might feel that pressure cookers are not worth it. However, advances in technology such as safety valves have aided in making this product more safe and convenient for daily use. Another nice side effect of the safety valves is that they reduce the noise and furious rattling that the older pressure cookers exhibited. To us a modern pressure cooker it’s almost as easy as boiling water.
