Cooking in a pressure cooker saves both time and energy. Food cooked in cookers is high in Nutrients and vitamins, making meals healthier than those prepared in traditional pots and pans. This is because pressure cookers retain more nutrients than regular cookware. Pressure cookers can finish the cooking process about 30% faster than traditional methods.
Before buying a pressure cooker you must check the capacity. Pressure cookers of 5 litres, 3 litres, and 2 litres are available depending upon your need. Cooking residues on the stovetop, walls and counters, are common when using standard stovetop pots. Steam and oils escape from open cookware and settle on these surfaces, requiring some cleanup after the meal has been cooked. A pressure cooker, on the other hand, has a tightly fitting lid that keeps any splashes or spatters from escaping the cooking vessel. This also eliminates the need for additional cleanup if there are any boilovers. Pressure cookers are typically available in 2-litre, litre, 3-litre, and 5-litre container combinations.
