Why Use a Pressure Cooker
One of the key reasons for cooking food using a pressure cooker is time. Time is very precious and being able to take a recipe that could take 5 to 6 hours and cook it in less than an hour is amazing. Not only does it save time, but it keeps all the goodness of the recipe in one pot. As an added bonus you have very little to wash up cooking in a pressure cooker.
I always remember as a kid my Grandfather cooking the Sunday dinner in this old stainless steel pressure cooker. It had this round chunk of metal that would his and spit steam out of it as it cooked on a low heat over the gas stove. The thing was a death trap but it cooked the best Sunday dinners I ever tasted.
Today we have pressure cookers that are a lot safer and use less energy than the one my Grandfather used to use. Its why I always feel safe cooking in my Pressure King Pro and get the best tasting meals as a bonus.
