A pressure cooker is a fantastic cooking tool. This appliance develops the characteristic textures and flavors of the foods so speedily that the conventional, long, and labor-intensive cooking process becomes the fastest technique to get a meal ready on the dining table. For example, risotto takes almost 6-7 minutes to cook if prepared in a pressure cooker instead of taking 25-30 minutes in a normal pan. The extreme temperature and pressure inside the airtight pot also promotes caramelization, browning, and other reactions that can create flavors and tastes. Try out the caramelized carrot soup recipe and see yourself the magic of a pressure cooker.

A Pressure Cooker is actually a pot fitted with a lockable lid and a valve to control the extreme pressure inside it. The cooker works by capturing the vapor or steam that keeps on increasing inside the pot with the increase in temperature. The high pressure and the steam build inside have two effects mainly. They are explained in the following points: –

  1. Raises the boiling point of the liquid or the water in the sealed pot: – When something wet is being cooked inside the pot such as a stew, caramel, soup, etc then the heat of the cooking stays limited to a temperature of 212 degree Fahrenheit that is the boiling point. But with the current level of the pressure of the steam inside, the boiling point can get to a maximum temperature of 250 degree Fahrenheit. The excessive heat makes it possible to cook the food much faster than any other normal cooking appliance.
  2. Raises the pressure and forces the liquid into the food to soften it: – The excessive pressure helps to force the water, any other liquid or the moisture content into the food quickly. This makes it possible to cook any meal faster. Even tough meat becomes quite tender in just a couple of minutes. The excessively high heat inside the vessel promotes the caramelization in a very surprising manner. We are not so much used to caramelize food and that also using a liquid as the base. But when one tries out this in a pressure cooker, the flavors that are created in it is truly deep and just yummy unlike the steamed foods that are prepared in a normal pot or pan.
