Let forget what you might think you know about best pressure cooker is not good or change it. Because It preserve more vitamins and minerals than other cooking methods (like boiling and steaming without pressure,) and save a ton of energy, too!
Here are my top 3 tips to get the most out of your stovetop or electric pressure cooker.
It is writen in best cookbooks for beginners. Let note!
Read the Manual
Each pressure cooker will have its own way to tell you it has reached pressure, which is an important milestone for the cook to know (since that’s when the heat should be turned down, after the cooker has reached pressure.) A bar with rings could rise, a colored pin will jiggle up and then steam will come out of the valve, or it will make a “toot.” Only your pressure cooker’s manual will tell you for sure what your best pressure cooker is supposed to do–so be sure to read it.
Never Overfill the Pressure Cooker
Even though steam doesn’t weigh anything, it needs space in the best pressure cooker to build up.
Never fill it more than 2/3 full with food.
Never fill it more than ½ full with liquid.
Don’t forget store It Right because The most convenient and best way to store your pressure cooker after using it is to place the lid upside down, on top of the pot.
Before storing, always wash the pot, lid and rubber gasket by hand with soapy, warm water; dry well before putting away.
Always check the safety valves to make sure that they are clean and unobstructed and that the rubber gasket is always pliable and flexible before inserting it under the lid.
De-Pressurize According to the Occasion
There are two main ways to release to pressure with a pressure cooker: pretty fast and slow.
The Normal Release uses the cooker’s own button, lever, or switch to release pressure in about a minute. It can be used for most foods (especially veggies,) or in the middle of pressure cooking, to quickly open and check on the food inside.
Natural Release takes 10-20 minutes (depending on how full the pressure cooker is,) and just means that the cook needs to turn off the heat, move the cooker aside, and let the pressure come down naturally. During this opening time, the food is still cooking without any additional heat–making this delicate release method best for meats (so their juices can come down from super-heated to boiling,) and beans (so foam does not spray out of the valve.)
