Essentially a heavy-duty pot with an airtight lid, a pressure cooker only needs a small amount of liquid to cook with, and is great for soups, stews or rice. Because steam cannot escape, the internal temperature rises, speeding cooking times, saving fuel and preserving water-soluble vitamins and minerals. On longer trips, reduced fuel consumption (as much as 60%) will offset the weight of the cooker. It's also useful on high-altitude trips, where the low atmospheric pressure can make it hard to determine adequate cooking times, or anywhere fresh water is scarce.
- Sturdy heavy-gauge aluminum heats evenly over your stove.
- Triple safety system ensures pressure is released before you can remove the lid.
- Independent release valves prevent build-up of dangerous pressures.
- Improved version has a lighter more compact design.
