Pressing Down On You: The 6 Best Pressure Cookers
A pressure cooker is the kitchen tool you get when youre ready to get serious about smart meal prep. By using compressed steam, pressure cookers hack your cooking time in at least half for anything you might want to boil, stew, or braise. Basically, if it is cooked in a pot, it can be cooked faster and more efficiently in a pressure cooker, using less energy and wasting less time. It accomplishes this by adding pressure, which raises the cooking temperature without adding extra heat. Standard pots with lids accomplish the same thing on a far lesser scale, but forcing the steam to build up inside them which cooks your food more rapidly than would leaving it open to the air.
