The concept of pressure cooking is not new as it came into existence decades back when French physicist Denis Pappin invented the steam digester in order to reduce the cooking time during the classic period of 1679. Even, now, it becomes popular. Because, cooking in a pressure cooker not only does it cook more quickly, but a pressure cooker can effectively tenderize cheaper cuts of meat that are typically tough. Pressure cooking allows food to be cooked at a greater humidity and temperature than is possible with traditional boiling, steaming or frying foods. The temperature of food is limited to the boiling point and a pressure cooker allows the steam to be trapped, increasing the temperature inside the pot. Pressure cooking can be used to quickly simulate long braising or simmering.
