This Kuhn Rikon Duromatic Inox Pressure Cooker, long handle, has a timeless design, is easy to use and is a practical must have for the kitchen. The aluminium base is especially thick and ensures rapid and even heat absorption on all heat sources, including induction.Three safety release systems and stay cool plastic fittings are all included in the design for your safety in the modern busy kitchen. The interior of the pan features a 1/2 and 2/3 fill level indicators. You can brown meats in the pan before the lid is locked on or use the pan without the lid. Easy positioning triangles allow you to close the lid with no fuss.
All models in the Duromatic range feature the fully-automatic locking system which prevents opening while there is still pressure in the cooker. As the food begins to boil, any air present in the pressure cooker will firstly escape through the spring-loaded pressure valve and then the valve cap will move up. The pressure indication lines become visible and you are able to cook effortlessly at low (0.4 bar) or high (0.8 bar) pressure by adjusting the heat. You can then just enjoy the peace and quiet and once your food inside is ready, the pressure can be released in three safe and easy ways.
Cooking with the Duromatic takes about 1/3 of the usual cooking time, with an energy saving of up to 70%. Vitamins and nutrients are sealed in, instead of boiled away, vegetables keep their bright colours and flavours are so intense less seasoning is needed. The cooker can be used for meats, soups, stews, vegetarian dishes, and desserts and is large enough to accommodate a whole chicken or roast. The pressure cooker's spring-loaded valve takes the guesswork out of pressure cooking, giving you a perfect result every time. The valve, very much like a thermometer, lets you know the precise moment at which to begin timing your dish and a visual indicator pin tells you how much pressure is inside the cooker, while eliminating the noise of escaping steam. The automatic lid-locking system prevents the lid from ever opening while the cooker is under pressure. The stainless steel pot will not interact with food, and the aluminium base conducts heat superbly, resulting in perfectly even browning and rapid heat absorption.
This fantastic cooker also comes with a recipe booklet.
