NOVATO, Calif., Aug. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Pressure cookers have long been used by professional chefs to create flavorful dishes in record time, and now a new generation of home cooks is embracing them for their advantages in preparing soups, meats, poultry, beans, grains, vegetables and even fruit.
"The pressure cooker is a great time saving tool," explains Chef Sang Yoon, restaurateur, chef and culinary trendsetter. "At home, I always use it for potatoes and corn. Not just for the speed, but for flavor. The flavor is much more intense. It will almost be like tasting a potato for the first time."
Enjoy faster, tastier, and healthier cooking with Swiss-made Kuhn Rikon Duromatic® Pressure Cookers. Easy to use, it reduces cooking times by up to 66% versus conventional cooking. And because it cooks under pressure, foods retain more nutrients and color, for healthy eating and culinary appeal. The result is perfectly cooked, delicious and healthy meals made with less fats and oils.
"To me, the pressure cooker not only gives me a speed advantage but also a way to impact flavors," explains Yoon. "I like to take a favorite braised meat recipe and prepare in the pressure cooker," he adds. "It takes less than half the time to prepare, yet all the flavors are more heightened."
Prepare anything from stocks to risotto to desserts in the pressure cooker. Kuhn Rikon Duromatic® Pressure Cookers lets you create delicious recipes that you might not otherwise make, such as Korean galbi jjim Pressure Cooker-Style from Chef Yoon.
