Benefits of Cooking with a Pressure Cooker

Cooking with a Pressure Cooker is Cheap and Easy

If you have not cooked with a modern pressure cooker before, you are in for a treat.

Cooking with a pressure cooker is easy, fast and cost-effective.

This page gives some of the advantages of cooking with a pressure cooker from a green living perspective and explores some of the types of cookery for which pressure cookers are suitable. There's also a recipe for delicious Lancashire Hot Pot!

Savings!

Incredibly, you can save as much as a two-thirds of your normal cooking fuel and you can save a similar amount of time for each dish cooked.

Using a pressure cooker for your cooking is a very green option because of the fuel savings you will achieve. Gas and electric cookers alike contribute significant carbon-dioxide emissions. These are emitted during combustion for gas and during production for electricity.

And of course you will shave your fuel money down considerably. Pity you cannot use them to grill!

If you haven't yet bought a pressure cooker, there are some good options.

You can also make stocks for use in other recipes. Use the bones from cuts of meat or chicken to produce wonderful stocks which can be added to soups and other dishes to provide more nutrition and flavour.

Another way to use your pressure cooker to good effect is to make puddings which would otherwise require steaming for a long time.

Most pressure cookers have trivets for steaming as part of the equipment.
