You may have heard friends or family say that you can cook almost anything in a pressure cooker – and they would be 100% correct. While most people use them to whip up tasty curries and stews or to make supremely tender meat dishes, it’s also entirely possible to cook vegetables or even a decadent dessert in one.
Not sure whether a pressure cooker is the right product for you? Or maybe you’ve wanted one for a while? Take a look at our collection of high-quality options and get ready for a simpler, more efficient way of creating mouth-watering meals.
What does a pressure cooker do?
This increasingly popular piece of kitchen equipment essentially uses high pressure to rapidly cook food.
Wondering how? Pressure cookers feature a central chamber where you can stash your ingredients. It’s then sealed off when you switch it on and starts to heat up. The steam created by the heat begins to cook the food and, thanks to zero evaporation, does so much quicker than an oven ever could.
As well as using less water initially for the cooking process, pressure cookers also allow food to retain more of its nutrients. What’s more, they typically use less energy than a hob – making it a win-win for your tastebuds and your bank balance.
What should I look for when buying a pressure cooker?
Choosing the right pressure cooker can be tricky as there are so many on the market. Deciding which one is right for you will likely come down to how often you plan on using it, what you want to cook in it and how much space you have in your kitchen to store it.
At Lakeland, you’ll spot electric pressure cookers in a range of sizes, from three-litre options that are great for smaller households to larger eight-litre products perfect for families. Want your pressure cooker to do more? Consider a combined instant pot that can also bake, grill or sauté.
