In simple words, a Pressure cooker is nothing but a sealed container with a pressure gauze to maintain the pressure that is formed inside the vessel and is being used for cooking food by employing pressure.
Closed vessel traps the steam inside, this allows the internal pressure to increase, eventually leads to an increase in temperature. This pressure is generated from water, hence it is called steam pressure.
As compared to any conventional cooking process, pressure cooker cooks food faster. This is because of the reason that the boiling temperature of water in an open vessel can reach only up to 212F wherein inside the cooker, it can reach up to 250F due to steam pressure hence aiding the cooking in a faster way.
To look back in years, the Steam digester is widely considered as the ancestor of pressure cooker which was invented by Denis Papin in the late 1600s.
Pressure cooker’s use has been advanced with the advent of recent new technologies, to a much safer level where it can be used by any person in a handy manner.
For a better understanding and more information regarding how a pressure cooker works? is well explained by the Mocomi kids video.
The recent advance in the pressure cooker is the implementation of induction technology. The standard base pressure cookers work on Gas, electric and ceramic cooktops.
