Whenever possible, consider cooking with a pressure cooker. You’ll be surprised to find that food will cook three or four times faster this way. And you’ll also be surprised to discover that the food often tastes better, too. Best of all, you’ll use less energy, save money on that monthly power bill, and help the environment all at the same time.
In addition, there are several other surprising benefits in using a pressure cooker. For instance, did you know that flavors will often bind together when the cooking process is slow. This is particularly true for stews and sauces. The result is that you’ll miss out the best flavors of your meal. It’s only when you eat the leftovers that you’ll discover the true, rich flavors of the foods and spices.
Pressure cooking delivers this rich and enjoyable flavors immediately. No waiting for leftovers. No waiting for the flavors to find their way to the surface. They’re all right there, because the higher heat and increased pressure combines and melds these flavors together much faster. Don’t take my word for it. Try a favorite recipe in a pressure cooker and see if it doesn’t taste better than you’ve ever imagined possible.
You’ll also find that pressure cookers require fewer liquids for cooking. Why is this important? Because it helps maintain the nutritional value of your food. The food you cook is actually better for you when you cook it using a pressure cooker.
And finally, you’ll be delighted to find that using a pressure cooker will dramatically reduce your cooking time. On those hot summer days, the kitchen won’t heat up as much, thereby reducing your air conditioning use. And you’ll have more time to participate in other activities outside of the kitchen.
