Cooks without oil. Maintain the natural color and flavor of foods. Safe: The Fagor Pressure cooker is equipped with three independent pressure release mechanisms. If the unit is left unattended the main valve will begin to release excess pressure, next the safety valve will assist in releasing pressure and finally the gasket will protrude from the notch located on the side of the lid. Moreover, pressure will never build up if the safety lock has not been moved to the closed position. Once the pressure indicator has popped up, it will automatically block this safety lock, not allowing you to move it to the “open” position until all the pressure has been released. Includes: Stainless-steel pasta/steamer basket insert, support trivet. More Than 50 Recipes cookbook. Instruction booklet features cooking times, cooking conversion guides for traditional recipes, and high-altitude tips. Beginning in the 1930s, two generations of busy cooks employed pressure cookers to prepare family meals. The next generation, freighted with memories of valves dancing and hissing on stovetops, then snubbed pressure cookers. News flash--pressure cookers have come back, those old valves replaced by modern versions that ensure safety while delivering the speed, ease, and nutritional benefits of pressure cooking. This heavyweight, stainless-steel beauty is a fine example of contemporary engineering and style. Its mirror finish gleams, and its black handles, including a loop handle for two-handed lifting, stay cool. Pressure cooking traps steam to heat foods at temperatures higher than boiling. This cooker has an aluminum disk sandwiched by stainless steel in its base to speed the process even more through fast heat conductivity. It's safe on electric, gas, ceramic, and induction stovetops. Little water is required, so nutrients, flavor, and color are not boiled away. Vegetables emerge vibrantly colored from the steamer basket insert. Stews, soups, beans--even meat loaf, pork chops, and desserts like bread pudding--come out tasty and nutritious. (Recipes included.) Meats can be browned in the pot before the lid is locked on, and the pot can be used without the lid. The operating valve offers high and low pressure settings for cooking foods at ideal speeds. Safety measures abound. The lid twists onto the pot, with a rubber gasket ensuring a tight seal. A lock secures lid to pot. A vent releases steam if pressure builds too high, as does a valve that also locks the lid when any pressure whatsoever is inside the cooker. Another device indicates pressure and gently releases steam during cooking. Cleanup is a bit complicated. Hand wash pot, gasket, and lid with a mild detergent. Lightly oil the gasket. Remove and clean the operative valve. This minor cleaning inconvenience, however, should not overshadow the major convenience of pressure cooking. --Fred Brack From the Manufacturer Fagor is Green: Fagor's mission is to use resources efficiently to preserve the environment and save energy, developing highly efficient products that consume less and save money; contributing to a healthy planet for us and our future generations.
