    GREENBRAE, Calif., Feb. 20 /PRNewswire/ -- With the high cost of energy
 one of the top national news stories for 2001, consumers are looking for ways
 to reduce home energy costs without compromising their lifestyles.
     KUHN RIKON Duromatic Pressure Cookers let you reduce energy costs while
 improving your lifestyle.  They offer meals in minutes with up to 70% less
 energy consumption versus conventional cooking.
     Pressure cooking is a fast, super-charged way to cook on the stovetop, so
 you can prepare your favorite dishes quickly without extended stovetop or oven
 use.  KUHN RIKON Duromatic Pressure Cookers easily pay for themselves in
 energy savings with regular use.
     Pressure cooking also takes the "pressure" out of preparing dinner for
 time-pressed cooks who can now cook great meals from scratch in a fraction of
 the time it takes to cook in conventional pots and pans.  Pressure cooking not
 only tenderizes, it enhances taste by mingling and intensifying flavors the
 way long, slow cooking does.

 soups, stews, meats, chicken, poultry, bean dishes, rice dishes, vegetables --
 even desserts.
     Unlike most pressure cookers on today's market, the KUHN RIKON Duromatic
 features a spring-loaded valve system, which is substantially safer and easier
 to use than the jiggle top mechanism associated with pressure cooking of the
     KUHN RIKON Duromatic Pressure Cookers come with a free Quick Cuisine
 cookbook, a $14 value.  There are also numerous pressure cooker cookbooks on
 the market, such as the newly released Pressure Cooking for Everyone by Rick
