Top 5 Benefits of Using a Pressure Cooker
1. A Pressure Cooker Retains More Nutrients
It is a fact that a pressure cooker can retain more of the nutrients of the food that we are cooking as the cooking time is significantly reduced. Other ways of cooking will take longer period of time and that means more nutrients will be lost and wasted. Since a pressure cooker can cook faster, it requires less liquid which allows most of the vitamins and minerals to be locked in, giving your food more nutritional values.
2. Food Will Be Tastier
Similar to the first benefit, since food will be cooked faster this means that they are less likely to reduce their flavour and colour. Food will be more succulent and juicier as less moisture will be lost. It is also worth mentioning that a pressure cooker can make your food more aromatic and fragrant. In other words by using a pressure cooker, the food that you prepare will taste richer and more flavourful.
3. Saves Time In Preparation & Cooking
One of the best benefits of using a pressure cooker is that you can DRAMATICALLY REDUCE cooking time by up to 70%. It is undeniable that a lot of us are leading a hectic lifestyle and hence it is getting increasingly difficult to prepare nutritious meals for our family. But thanks to the handy pressure cooker, we can still cook hearty meals for our respective families despite arriving home late in the evening.
We can safely say that a pressure cooker is your very own personal "Chef" that can dish out delicious cuisines for you in no time. All you have to do is prepare the ingredients, throw everything into the pressure cook and choose the suitable preset and timing. Voila~your desired meals will be prepared in no time. For example, I have cooked Briyani Rice in less than 15 minutes only by using a pressure cooker. Hence it is obvious that a pressure cooker bring untold convenience!
4. Saves Energy (Electricity)
Contrary to popular beliefs, using a pressure cooker is actually more electricity-saving. This is because a pressure cooker can cook a potful of meal in a short period of time. Another reason why using a pressure cooker cuts down your energy bill is because you tend to prepare one-pot cooking recipes to prepare your meals for your family.
5. Less Cleaning For You
Those who love to cook will agree that cooking and eating is fun but not cleaning whatever that is left on the kitchen top and stove top. How about the oil, grease and hardened food residues that cling to you pots and cooking ware? With a well-secured lid, a pressure cooker can prevent any unwanted splashes, spillovers or spatters that come with your usual cooking methods. If you use a one-pot cooking recipe with your pressure cooker, then you will only have one pot to wash!
BONUS BENEFIT: Highly Portable & Can Be Used Anywhere
By now you will agree that a pressure cooker is very mobile and highly portable! You can bring you pressure cooker and use it not only in your kitchen. You can use it in your dining room, your living room or even in your bedroom right? Since it is highly portable you can also bring it back to your hometown to share with your other family members or with your friends in his or her place. Frankly speaking I don't mind bringing my 6-litre pressure cooker around the house just to prepare our meals.
