MY MOM'S PRESSURE COOKER


My dear children, did you enjoy the food that your mom cooked for you today ? Mommy makes food by using different ways of cooking, right ? Some times she cooks the food in a frying pan by frying the food items, some times she roasts or bakes the food  by using microwave or oven and  sometimes she cooks the meal using pressure cooking method in a " PRESSURE COOKER . "
Today I am going to tell you something about pressure cooker . I hope you will like the article and it will help you to understand how it works. The pressure cooker was invented by a french physicist Denis Pepin in the year of 1679.He named it the "digester ". He invented it to reduce the time, used for cooking food . He presented his invention in front of Royal Society and King Charles II . He demonstrated that how the digester cooked the food like meat and fish in lesser time than any other cooking method .It was how the pressure cooker was invented.


A pressure cooker cooks the food quickly because it is a hermetically sealed pot which produces steam heat . The  pressure cooker is air tight that's why the steam present in the pot cannot go out . It heats the water to produce very high steam which forces the temperature  inside the cooker as high as 266° F (130° C) so high temperature  that it cooks the food faster and quicker.

The food is cooked faster so it does not loose minerals and vitamins
vitamins . It needs a less quantity of water for cooking and it can cook every kind of food . It is also good for saving energy because it takes much lesser time than any other cooking device . Isn't  that a wonderful
invention.    


Safety rules - 1.Always check your equipment before using it.                                      
                      2. Use enough amount of water and oil.
                     
                     3. Release the steam when the pot is cooled down .
                     
                     4. Always clean the pot properly . 
                     
                     5. Do not fill any pressure cooker more than 2/3 full. 
                     
                     6. Moms should not  let the children get too close to the  pressure cooker. 

  I hope that you and your mom will find the article informative and helpful .

  1. My mom and my grandmother always used a pressure cooker - she always kept me from getting to close because of the danger and also because I'm clumsy! :)

  4. This is a nice information, Auntie!

    No chance I will cook, neither with a pressure cooker, nor with anything else... unless I tried to make a barbecue on the room balcony, which may put me on the street if the hotel manager gets the scent! :)
