NOVATO, Calif., Feb. 25, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Kuhn Rikon presents Duromatic Pressure Cookers, which cut cooking times by up to 70 percent, and save energy as well. Used by home cooks and professional chefs, pressure cooking requires less active time cooking, while creating dishes rich in flavor and nutrients.


Kuhn Rikon Duromatic Pressure Cookers, which are Swiss engineered and Swiss made, eliminate the guesswork of pressure cooking thanks to their high precision pressure valve. Triple overpressure protections and an automatic locking lid make them safe and convenient to use. Kuhn Rikon's Superthemic® Sandwich Base is designed for enduring quality and even heat distribution.

With ultra fast cooking under pressure, beef stew cooks in 15 to 20 minutes instead of 2 hours. Homemade pasta sauce is ready in 20 minutes, rather than an hour and a half. Black beans take 10 to 12 minutes, instead of 2 hours.

As the pressure cooker trend grows, the number of pressure cooking recipes has grown too, including the Kuhn Rikon online library and the new Kuhn Rikon Duromatic App for Android and IOS.

A recent The New York Times Magazine story by famed food writer Mark Bittman focused on the benefits of pressure cooking, including tips from "pressure-cooker maven" Lorna Sass, who has penned several renowned pressure cooking cookbooks.  The article was linked to three videos of Lorna Sass demonstrating recipes with a Kuhn Rikon Duromatic Pressure Cooker. The featured videos are for Lamb Meatballs in Greek-Inspired Tomato Sauce, Porcini Risotto with Peas and Black Bean Soup with Avocado Salsa.
