With all the modern appliances that are available to us, many of us have actually forgotten the very versatile use of a pressure cooker. Even a few years ago, most households owned at least two to three manual pressure cookers to cook their food quickly. These days, however, the traditional pressure cooker has gone through a lot of change and evolved into a more modern and useful kitchen appliance. Find out more in this pressure cooker guide.

Even with all the different options for cooking available in your kitchen, both the traditional and the modern versions of pressure cookers are still popular in kitchens where food needs to be cooked quickly and with very little hassle.

How to use a Pressure Cooker?

The main idea behind cooking in a pressure cooker is to trap all the steam inside the cooker so that your food is cooked faster and without letting any of the nutrition escape. It is also a healthy way of cooking where your food is prepared in half the time than if you had used a regular pan or pot. The traditional pressure cooker was compatible with any regular stovetop, cooktop or induction stove.

As opposed to the traditional pressure cookers, the modern ones come with their own heating mechanism. The modern pressure cookers resemble an instant pot where you can cook more than soups and curries; indeed, these pressure cookers can be used for sautéing, broiling, baking, stir-frying, slow cooking, steaming and dehydrating. The modern pressure cookers are the only appliances you might need in your kitchen for trying out different kinds of food and recipes.

Pressure cookers have been around kitchens for the last 300 years, but modern appliances have only been available for a decade or so. The traditional pressure cooker was extremely helpful, but caused a number of accidents in many houses; this is why families stopped using them suddenly. The modern pressure cookers, on the other hand, are completely safe to use.

How does Pressure Cooker work? 

A pressure cooker, as the name suggests, cooks by building up pressure. When you apply heat to the pot, which is sealed shut by a rubber band around the lid, the liquid inside the pot boils and is turned into steam. Pressure begins to build when the steam is trapped inside with no means to escape. This creates heat energy, which cooks the food extremely fast – faster than any other method.

A Pressure cooker cooks food faster because of the heat and the steam increase the liquid’s boiling point. No matter how long you cook, the liquid will stay at the same temperature; you can only increase the temperature of the liquid past the boiling point if you add some pressure and steam to the equation. Only when the pressure builds up inside the cooker because of the steam, the liquid will go past the boiling point and cook your food faster.

At the same time, it is because of the presence of excess water inside the pressure cooker that the food is cooked faster. The steam created by the water is more efficient in transferring heat than steam from an open stove, which is transferred into the food, cooking it within a very short time. When you are cooking something inside a pressure cooker, it always requires more water, which helps in the cooking process.

What can you cook with a Pressure Cooker? 

A very important thing to consider before you buy a pressure cooker is what you can make with it, and that’s something you’ll learn in this pressure cooker guide. With the modern pressure cookers, you can cook almost anything! Some of the most advanced models come with one-touch buttons that you can use to choose between different cooking modes and temperature options.

You can cook rice in under a few minutes in a pressure cooker, much faster than in a rice cooker. For relatively tougher food like beans, chickpeas and beef pieces, the excess liquid inside the cooker helps to cook the food faster. Meat can become extremely tender and braised when cooked inside a pressure cooker, and it doesn’t take up a lot of time.

However, pressure cookers are more popular in cooking stews, soups, curries and vegetables, meat and pulses, beans and even rice. If you have to cook a large batch of tough meat within a very short time and make them tender, the best option for you is to use a pressure cooker. You can even roast and cook an entire chicken in a Pressure cooker, and bake bread in the Instant Pot, which is the most versatile kind of pressure cooker available in the market now.

How to cook in a Pressure Cooker? 

Cooking in a pressure cooker is almost like cooking in a regular pot, but since this particular kitchen appliance uses steam and heat energy to cook your food, there are a few steps for you to remember.

Of course, the perfect way to use your pressure cooker depends on the recipe you are trying, but there are a few simple rules to follow when using this kind of appliance.  For example, you need to understand exactly what a pressure cooker is and how it is different from a regularly covered pot to use it.

  • The type of pressure cooker that you are using also plays a very important role in this: you could be either using the traditional pressure cookers with a “jiggle top” vent that goes off automatically every once in a while, or the newer and the more modern cooker types that have a closed system.

When cooking stews, soups, chili or beans, you can add all the ingredients to the Pressure Cooker at the same time, add adequate water, give it a stir and seal the cover for the cooker to start preparing your food. Most traditional pressure cookers came with a solid cover so that you couldn’t see what’s going on inside. In the traditional method of cooking, people listened to the number of whistles let out by the ‘Jiggle top” to determine if their food was done cooking. In the modern versions of a pressure cooker – the Instant Pot or the Ultra Pot – you can set the timer and the temperature, and the appliance would automatically stop cooking.

  • If you are cooking meat and you need to brown your meat before cooking it, you can simply use the pressure cooker to do so. On top of a stove or induction stove, or even inside the specific casing of the modern pressure cooker, you can heat oil and brown your meat in it just like on a regular pot. If you want, you can use a separate pan to brown or fry your food before cooking it in a pressure cooker.
  • Some pressure cooker comes with a steamer basket, which you can use for steaming fruits and vegetables, and seafood. You can also find a trivet with a pressure cooker that can be used as the basket’s stand; the trivet is placed at the bottom of the cooker while the basket is placed on the top. The lid is kept open and the pressure cooker is filled 2/3rd with water so that the steam coming from the bottom can cook the food placed in the basket.
  • Dry beans, grain berries, and chickpeas should be soaked in water for four to six hours before cooking them in a pressure cooker.
  • Frozen and fresh fruits and vegetables can be cooked in a pressure cooker in less than 5 minutes. For a larger quantity of food, use 2 to 3 cups of water to steam the food for up to 20 minutes.
  • Rice and oatmeal don’t need to be soaked before putting them inside a pressure cooker. These types of ingredients can be cooked in under 5 minutes as they are incredibly soft, so soaking them will overcook them, and cause the grains to become mushy.
  • The most important part of cooking in a pressure cooker is to determine the amount of water to put inside the container. The amount of water is going to cook your ingredients by releasing steam, so the amount is crucial unless you want your food to overcook or undercook. If your pressure cooker or Instant Pot comes with a manual, you can find the amount of water needed for each kind of ingredients mentioned in it. So, if you are cooking chili or beans, you can find the required amount of water mentioned in the recipe itself or the manual.
  • Cooking in a pressure cooker requires you to put all the ingredients inside the cooker together. With the traditional cooker, you won’t be able to see inside the container while it is cooking, and opening the sealed lid will release the steam and slow down the cooking time. With recipes such as curries, stews, casseroles and soups, roasted chicken or beef, it is better to add all the ingredients to the slow cooker at the beginning so that you can finish cooking within a few minutes.
  • It is very important that you choose a stovetop or an induction stove that is steady and has a larger surface than the bottom of the pressure cooker. This is because the cooker will produce a lot of steam that will be released through the lid in a forceful way, which can make the cooker topple in the burner stand is smaller or uneven. This problem will only be seen in the traditional pressure cookers that need to be placed on a stove, not the modern ones that come with their own heating mechanism.
  • It is also important that you close the lid of the pressure cooker securely. The traditional cookers come with a lid that has a rubber seal around the edges, which stops the steam from escaping. Only when the lid is securely closed can your food start to cook quickly.
  • The heat needs to be set to high or medium-high for a pressure cooker for the water to quickly convert into steam. The pressure will start to rise inside the cooker because of the high heat and the liquid.
  • When the pressure reaches the highest limit inside the cooker, some of it will be released from the top of the lid. In the traditional models, the pressure will be released from the “jiggle top” with a loud noise and a big “whoosh” of steam. The whistle-like noise from the cooker can be counted to know when exactly to remove the pressure cooker from the stove. In the modern Instant pots, the amount of pressure inside the cooker will be marked on the valve stem; these marks are a clear indication of the pressure inside the cooker, and the pressure inside will be automatically reduced by the cooker itself.
  • When your traditional pressure cooker gives out the required amount of whistles as mentioned by the recipe or the manual, you can turn off the stove or remove the lid. If you still want to keep on cooking after the required number of whistles, you can reduce the heat to let the liquid inside simmer. This will maintain the steam and the pressure inside the pressure cooker without overcooking the food. In the more modern versions, the food can be kept warm or left to simmer in its own liquid when you are done cooking.
  • The lid of the traditional pressure cooker should only be open when the food has been left to simmer over low heat, or immediately after a “whistle” has been left out. These are the times when the pressure buildup inside the cooker is minimum; if you happen to open the lid with building pressure inside, the hot steam may cause an accident.
  • It is always better to turn off the stove or the pressure cooker after it has been cooked for the duration mentioned in the recipe, or after you have heard the required number of whistles. Be sure to open the lid only after the pressure inside has completely been released, which will happen naturally after a while, or can be induced. Naturally, it takes a pressure cooker around 10 to 20 minutes to be rid of all the pressure inside, but you can also reduce the steam inside by turning the “Quick Release” knob. You can also hold your traditional pressure cooker under cold water to release the pressure inside.
  • The lid is only safe to remove when there’s no more steam or pressure left inside the pressure cooker. You can still keep on cooking or keeping your food warm inside the cooker over low heat until it’s ready to serve.

Without the special lid, both the traditional and the modern pressure cooker is just a regular pot you can use to cook. With the lid tightly secured on the cooker, your food is cooked faster than any other cooking method, helping you to reduce your total cooking time by hours and saving energy.

How to Choose the Best Pressure Cooker? 

Something you’ll know at the end of this pressure cooker guide. If you want a kitchen appliance that can cook your food in minutes instead of hours, you need the help of a pressure cooker. You have two different types to choose from: a traditional pressure cooker that needs to be put on top of a burner, or a modern pressure cooker that comes with its own heating mechanism and works with electricity.

If you want a fast cooking experience, it is always better to get a modern pressure cooker that you can use for almost all kinds of cooking. While choosing one from the many modern pressure cookers available in the market, you need to look for certain features and qualities for them to be helpful in your cooking experience.

  • Functionality 

With the new kind of pressure cookers, you can try more than just one type of recipe! In fact, with the Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker, you can slow cook, sauté, steam and keep food warm, and also use the cooker as a pressure cooker, rice cooker, and a yogurt maker. The Ninja FD401 Foodi Deluxe also can be used to pressure cook, sear, sauté, the air crisp, bake, slow cook, broil, steam and dehydrate your food.

The more versatile your pressure cooker, the more it can replace the other appliances in your kitchen. With the right pressure cooker in your kitchen, you won’t need to invest in an additional rice cooker or yogurt maker, and even clear the clutter created by too many different kinds of pots and pans.

  • Ease of Use 

With most of these modern pressure cookers, all you need is to touch a button to change the mode of cooking, and your cooker will do the rest of the work. Unlike the traditional pressure cookers, you can even select the temperature and the time you need for your recipes, and not wait to count the whistles released by the cooker. With these modern cookers, it is almost impossible for your food to be undercooked, overcook or burn unless you choose the wrong options and put in the wrong amount of liquid.

Modern pressure cookers are easier to use, as it eliminates the guesswork associated with cooking. You can use one of these pressure cookers in the same way you use your slow cooker or convection oven to cook and bake, as the cookers themselves come with built-in cooking modes.

  • Safety

The traditional pressure cookers weren’t as safe as they were helpful and time-saving. In fact, there had been many accidents in the kitchen in the past because of a badly handled pressure cooker. The modern appliances are much safer these days and hardly cause any accidents or mishaps in the kitchen. As they come with built-in cooking modes and adjustable temperature options, your pressure cooker will shut-off automatically before the food is overcooked or burned.

Besides, the modern-day pressure cookers come with improved precautionary features, i.e. safety locks and better-quality lids. The lids cannot be directly opened without opening the safety lock first, which makes it impossible for kids to open the lid. There is also no chance of the hot steam accidentally escaping from the container because the lids cannot be directly opened. In some models, you can find an extra safety lock that the users have to push to be able to open the lid when cooking. Until the lock is released, the lid cannot be opened.

Besides, unlike the solid lids in the traditional pressure cookers, the lids in the modern models are transparent and sturdy. You can see what’s happening inside the cooker while the food is cooking, and decide whether it is safe to open the lid. If there seems to be too much pressure build-up inside the cooker that is not being released, you can simply turn off the pressure cooker and wait for the appliance to cool down, before opening the lid.

  • Build 

The traditional pressure cookers were all made from stainless steel, but they were kept light for ease of cooking and carrying. In some brands, this flimsy build of the pressure cooker was the main cause behind the cookers bursting out and causing accidents.

Models like the Mueller UltraPot 6Q, the Instant Pot Duo 7-in-1 Electric Pressure Cooker, and the Ninja FD401 Foodi Deluxe are all made from the highest quality stainless steel so that there would be no cracks or holes in the body of the cooker even when you use it over a high temperature for hours at an end. These pressure cookers are the ideal combination of technology and durability so that you can use these kitchen appliances for years.

The bottoms of these pressure cookers need to be at least Three-Ply thick for them to be considered durable, as well as made from an “18/10 Stainless Steel” combination. This refers to a composition of 18% chromium and 10% nickel, which makes the best kind of stainless steel. This composition of chromium and nickel makes your pressure cooker containers shiny, and resistant against corrosion and stain. The Mueller UltraPot 6Q has an “18/10 Stainless Steel” composition, for instance.

  • Size

Of course, it is needless to say that size is quite important when it comes to choosing a pressure cooker for your family. If you are cooking for the whole family, you’ll need a pressure cooker with a large container, like the Ninja FD401 Foodi Deluxe with an 8-quart holding capacity. On the other hand, the Mueller UltraPot 6Q has a holding capacity of only 6-quarts, but you can use this pressure cooker to cook two different recipes at the same time.

The size of a pressure cooker refers to the holding capacity of the container that comes with the cooker, the container that will hold all your ingredients for cooking. Since the container of a pressure cooker can only be filled ¾ of the way, these cookers are designed to be much bigger than any other kinds of kitchen appliances.

  • Extra Accessories 

You can get different types of accessories and cooking utensils with your preferred pressure cooker, to help in trying out new accessories. These may be as simple as an accessory as a steaming basket, but these customized accessories can prove to be quite helpful when you are cooking.

The Ninja FD401 Foodi Deluxe, for example, comes with a reversible rack and a crisp basket for deep-frying, while the Mueller UltraPot 6Q comes with a bonus steamer basket, a ladle, a measuring cup, and a silicone gasket. Since these baskets and racks come customized with the pressure cooker, they’ll fit in best with the container inside instead of the extra accessories you can buy from the market.

  • Handles 

It is always better to buy a pressure cooker that has two handles on either side than a single one, especially when you want to buy a large cooker. When you have food inside the cooker, either before or after cooking, it will get heavy. Carrying the heavy cooker with your hands could get tricky with just one handle, as could be seen in most of the traditional pressure cookers.

However, most of the modern pressure cookers come with two small but sturdy handle for you to carry the cooker around. Sometimes, the handles can even be folded down to save space when storing – an additional convenience.

  • Warranty 

Pressure cookers don’t get damaged often, but they can need replacement parts often. It helps if the pressure cooker you end up with gets free replacement parts or repairing, which is available with most brands. Besides, it is important that you choose a brand and a model that has all the replacement parts available when you need them.

  • Accurate Pressure Indicator

In pressure cooking, the term “psi” refers to “pounds per square inch”, i.e. the amount per square inch of space inside a pressure cooker at full force. For any standard pressure cooker, the maximum is 15 psi, which is equal to 248.76⁰F or 120.42⁰C. Most recipes call for 15 psi temperature, but this psi is only possible in a traditional stovetop pressure cooker. Most electric pressure cookers work at 8 to 13 psi, which will require you to add a few minutes to the recipes that require a 15 psi pressure.

With most pressure cookers, you can find a pressure indicator to tell you what the pressure inside is. This can be a pop-up indicator or a colored marker, or something completely different. Whatever the pressure indicator in your cooker, it should be easily understandable and accurate, to let you know when the psi inside the cooker is at its highest and the lid shouldn’t be opened.

  • Price 

The more modern the pressure cooker with the more features, the more expensive they are going to be – that’s a fact. The basic and traditional pressure cookers can be large and useful, but they don’t come with any built-in cooking modes or extra safety features, but they are also cheap. They are lightweight and prone to damage, and some of the parts can be quite difficult to clean.

On the other hand, the premium pressure cookers are usually made of stainless steel and heavier and don’t give you much trouble even after years of use. They can be pricier than the traditional and the mid-range pressure cookers, but they are also safe and comes with various pressure settings, extra accessories and can be easily cleaned.

These are the features to look for in a pressure cooker that can help you immensely in the kitchen, and eliminate the need for several other kitchen appliances. You might not find all the features in a single model, but all the cookers available in the market have similar helpful features and qualities.
