Pressure Cookers Cook Safer: Food properly cooked in a pressure cooker is safer, because it is cooked at higher temperatures that do a better job of killing microorganisms.
Pressure Cookers Use Less Energy: Cooking with a pressure cooker uses 70% less energy than using conventional methods of oven roasting, boiling or steaming.
A few very important pointers when cooking under pressure:
-Only fill the cooker to the recommended fill line, usually no more than 75% full. This allows room for the pressure to build and for excess steam to escape.
-Cook only foods that do not froth, foam or sputter, to prevent blockage of any of the relief valves.
-As with all cooking utensils, cleanliness is next to godliness.
-Replace any worn parts over time, like gaskets.
