Pressure Cooker Buying Guide

Pressure cookers are becoming more and more popular across the country as they are a great way to cook healthy food quickly. There are lots of different models which have many features to help you with your cooking. This guide will help you decide which pressure cooker is the best for your kitchen and how to save money buying one!

Why Use Pressure Cookers?

Do I Need a Pressure Cooker?

Whether you spend a lot of time in the kitchen or not, pressure cookers can enable you to take your cooking to the next level all while saving you time. With new models being developed constantly the latest features will make cooking a breeze and give you a new, fun method to cook.

Save Time

As we have mentioned above one of the best parts about a pressure cooker is the time it can save you while cooking. By using the pressure which builds up inside the pot, you can cook your food up to 70% faster than normal AND retain more flavour, keeping your meals as delicious as you would expect. 

Go Green & Save Money

Using a pressure cooker will not only save you time but actually reduce your energy bills at the same time, win-win. Compared to a traditional oven a pressure cooker uses around 40% less electricity & gas. With a worldwide drive to reduce our waste and energy consumption this is a great way to do your bit. Another added bonus is that you can cook very cheap ingredients such as dried beans or canned food, saving you money without compromising on the taste.


Make cooking simple!

Using a pressure cooker is very easy and once you have the hang of it. Its best used for food which usual takes a long time to cook. Pot roast and briskets are much easier when using a pressure cooker. Chicken stock can be reduced from 4 hours to produce down to just 1 hour. 

Easy to clean

Most of the pressure washers are designed to fit straight into your dishwasher. Because all your food is cooked within the pot you can drastically reduce the amount of utensils you will need to wash up after cooking. The pressure cookers are sealed tightly and wont mess up your kitchen while cooking with unexpected ‘explosions’ of food, phew!

Safety

Pressure cookers may have had a less than perfect reputation in the past when it came to safety. But no longer! The modern designs come with a number of features which mean that cooking with a pressure cooker is as safe if not safer than other methods. Generally there are safety vents to ensure that steam is released safely after the pressure level has been reached. 

Save Space

Because of all the tech in our kitchens, space can be an issue for smaller homes. Not only are pressure cookers relatively small and able to be stored in a cupboard, but they will also mean you can get rid of pots and pans which are clogging up your kitchen. To check how big each of the pressure cookers are you can take a look at our ultimate pressure cooker guide to compare the different models. 

Stove-Top Or Electric Pressure Cooker

Which type is best for you?

Electric pressure cookers are modern equivalents of older stove-top style cookers. There are benefits and downsides to both types which are worth considering before making a purchase. Electric pressure cookers generally come with many built in settings and features to make your cooking quicker and more successful. A traditional stove-top on the other hand will not include these features, however if you know what you are doing can be flexible in your cooking. 

If you are a less experienced chef then electric cookers may be easier to use when starting off. You can follow a range of simple recopies or use the pre-built settings which come as part of the pressure cooker. Simply add your ingredients and let the pot do the rest! 

Each model of electric pressure cooker will include different settings and features to help you cook so take a look at our pressure cooker reviews to find the best one for your needs.
