Pressure cooker tips

If you use a pressure cooker regularly, you’ll be familiar with the benefits of having healthier and tastier food, for all the family.

To keep your pressure cooker in tip top condition, we’ve come up with some handy usage and storage tips that can help prolong its lifespan.

The Knowhow

Before cooking:

  • Have a read of the manufacturer manual, as their hints and tips can be very beneficial and can give specific advice related to your pressure cooker.
  • It is always a good idea to buy a timer; not keeping track of time while using a pressure cooker, can make or break your dish

During cooking:

  • While cooking, have a watchful eye; keep children and pets at a safe distance
  • People are prone to getting burned, so take care when releasing pressure and never try to force the lid off. Note: Even though newer pressure cookers have different safety devices, you can still be burned - handle with care.
  • If adding any dairy products, wait until you are nearly done. If added too soon, it will curdle and can make your dinner look rather unappealing.

After cooking:

  • When storing your cooker, lightly dust it with baking soda; this keeps it cleaner and helps remove odours
  • After cleaning, don’t keep the lid closed on it; moisture will stay in the pressure cooker which can cause mould and stale smells.

Follow these tips for trouble-free cooking. No pressure!

Always refer to the manufacturer’s manual for specific details.
