This pressure cooker is sleek and modern in design and perfect for newcomers to pressure cooking and pros alike. The innovative construction delivers a pressure cooker that is completely silent and steam-free under pressure, so less water, energy, and time are needed. Conventional cooking methods cause many vitamins and minerals to be destroyed or released in the cooking liquid, which is often drained. This pressure cooker because it requires less cooking liquid and cooks faster, preserves food's nutritional value. The pressure cooker can be used for preserving (canning) low-acid foods safely and effectively. In addition, due to the high heat and pressure, the pressure cooker can be used to sterilize baby bottles and other items for use in the home. The base of the pressure cooker which is suitable for use on gas, electric, glass ceramic, as well as induction cooktops, is made of an extra-thick aluminum core and high-quality stainless steel, which ensures that the base will never separate, warp, or develop hot spots. The handle of the pressure cooker automatically locks with an audible click when closed properly and features a visual indicator window that changes from red to green when securely locked. Pressure cannot build until the lid is properly locked and the visual indicator is green. The conical shape of the pressure cooker, allows cookers of the same diameter to be stacked for space-saving storage without scratching or wedging; the handle can be quickly and easily removed for easier storage and cleaning. The pressure cooker features a convenient internal measuring scale and includes a stainless steel basket insert.
