Pressure cookers cook food under pressure with steam in a hermetically sealed pot. This allows food to be cooked at temperatures of up to 240°F. This saves time, energy, and preserves the vitamins and flavor.
Fissler pressure cookers have a multi-stage safety system with patented technology that is continuously being developed. To guarantee the safety and high quality of our pressure cookers, every Fissler pressure cooker goes through a manual "100% check" before it leaves our factory in Rhineland-Palatinate. Fissler pressure cookers regulate themselves if the pressure inside should be too high. For safety reasons, the pressure cooker cannot be opened until pressure has been released. Also, pressure cannot build up within the pot unless it’s properly locked. In addition, the locking indicator shows with the change from red to green and an audible "click" that the pot is securely closed.
Whether passionate cooks, discerning gourmets, or epicures: a pressure cooker is worthwhile for anyone who wants to save time and energy when cooking. Pressure cookers are suitable for any household size.
The higher temperature in the pot shortens cooking times by up to 70% compared to conventional cooking. This can save up to 50% energy. By excluding atmospheric oxygen and thanks to the short cooking times, the food is also cooked particularly gently. Vitamin, mineral, and aroma substances are better preserved, colors remain fresh and the intrinsic flavor intense.
Pot and lid (without cooking crown, handle and sealing ring) can be cleaned in the dishwasher. The cooking crown, handle and sealing ring must be cleaned by hand. We recommend treating the pot and lid with stainless steel care if necessary. This will make the stainless steel more resistant to salts and acidic foods. Residues of the care products should always be washed off thoroughly.
