This 8-inch, 3-3/4-quart pressure cooker celebrates Kuhn Rikon’s 50 years of making great pressure cookers. Like all Kuhn Rikon cookers, this anniversary edition quickly and healthfully cooks foods with trapped steam at temperatures higher than boiling. It’s the ideal size for singles, small families, and vegetarians, and makes dishes for three to five people. Pressure cooking requires little water so nutrients, flavor, and color are not boiled away. Made of heavyweight, mirror-finish, 18/10 stainless steel that won’t react with food, the cooker has a stay-cool handle and an aluminum disk sandwiched in stainless steel in its bottom to quickly and uniformly conduct heat. A bright blue steam diffuser on the lid displays cooking times of 20 popular dishes. The cooker comes with a stainless-steel steaming trivet and a Quick Cuisine cookbook containing 100 pages of recipes and tips.Kuhn Rikon Duromatic pressure cookers are designed with safety in mind. The automatic lid-locking device insures that no pressure can build up until the lid is put on correctly. The lid cannot be removed or come off until all pressure has been released. The cookers also provide the ultimate protection against excess pressure. The first indication that too much pressure has built up inside the cooker is the audible hiss as excess pressure is released through the valve. (When the user hears this, the heat should be turned down.) The valve will take care of any over pressurization by allowing steam to escape through the holes located on the valve stem. Additionally, another spring-loaded safety valve in the lid is set to release steam in case of a clogged main valve. This valve is not a “blow plug” like some old American cookers had, but a highly accurate spring-loaded valve that will open at a preset internal pressure and release steam safely and effectively.
This Duromatic pressure cooker can be used on any cooktop. It can go into the oven only at settings below 300 degrees F because of the stay-cool handle and valves. The pot is dishwasher safe, although the gasket and lid should be washed by hand. This pressure cooker carries a 10-year warrantee on all non-replaceable parts, material, and workmanship.
The Kuhn Rikon Duromatic 3.5-Quart Pressure Cooker features an automated lid-locking system and safety release back-up system to give you ultimate peace of mind.
