You may have heard or read a quote that “With great powers comes great responsibilities”. You must be confused about why I am quoting this statement right now but that quote fits well with the working of a pressure cooker. Yes! You heard it right. I am going to tell why this statement was related to the most useful kitchen equipment- Pressure cooker.

The pressure cooker was invented in 1902 by Denis Papin. That means we are using this equipment for more than 100 years. Isn't that amazing? Yes, it is. These 100 years prove how much we trust this kitchen utensil. And the most amazing thing about the cooker is that it never stops evolving itself from all these years. Now we have its many varieties such as stainless steel pressure cooker, aluminum, electrical, non-sticky and many more. And don’t forget the fact in this world of window shopping you can even buy a cooker online.

Now when you buy a new pressure cooker that might be your 2nd, 3rd or 4th but if you are using it for the first time then there comes the tough part because it is usual that human needs to learn about the new things before using it. Traditional pressure cookers had fewer safety features than the new and modern pressure cookers. Let see these qualities in a more understandable way below:

  1. A few years ago when the cookers were not that modern, there was a fear of explosion due to the food blocking the release valve because those cookers were only equipped with a primary safety valve. As the technology is evolving its cooking process has also changed, now the food blocking steam will give a signal to the safety device of the cooker. Many reputable manufacturers like United Pressure Cooker also provide modern pressure cookers that have sufficient safety features which prevent them from exploding. The mechanism is simple- when the safety valve releases too much pressure, some remains of food being cooked may also be discharged with the steam, which is loud and forceful. Regular cleaning and good maintenance of the pressure cooker can prevent this from happening.
  2. Many advanced pressure cookers have more than one safety valve with extra safety features like an interlock lid that protects sudden opening the lid by the user which prevents accidents from a sudden release of hot liquid, steam, and food.
  3. For better and safe use of the pressure cooker, one must read all the instructions and should understand how the pressure cooker works. Negligence of such rules can cause a high build of steam inside the cooker which will result in forcefully ejections of the water.

So, after going through all these points you must have understood why the quote “With great powers comes great responsibilities” relates to the pressure cooker. Well, you should work safely not with just the cooker but with every utensil in the kitchen. In the meantime, you can also shop high safety-enabled pressure cookers with United Pressure Cooker
