What do you use a pressure cooker for?
You use a pressure cooker when you want to shorten the cooking time of a specific dish. A stew that would take ages to cook will be finished a lot sooner in a pressure cooker, for instance. You will save up to 70% of your time. Also, when cooking vegetables the vitamins are much better preserved. So not only more efficient, also healthier.
This Fissler pressure cooker is enhanced with a perfect seal. The metal edges in the lid perfectly fall over the metal edges on the pan itself. A thick rubber ring ensures that the seal is air and waterproof. When you close the pan you will hear a solid click that tells you the pan is properly sealed off. The safety handle contains an indicator that tells you when the pan is properly sealed.
This Fissler Vitavit Premium pressure cooker is enhanced with three cooking levels. As such you can cook under very high pressure, use the medium mode or the steam mode. With the help of the steam mode you can even steam vegetables or other products with the included steamer basket. Because the pan is not pressurized in the steam mode you can also use this mode to fry a product before you want to put pressure on the pan. It namely allows you to open the lid for a moment. You can easily decide which cooking mode you want to use with the knob on top of the lid.
The knob on the lid is also enhanced with a status indicator. This indicator will give you a clear overview of the status of the pan. When the indicator turns green it has reached the right temperature. When it turns yellow you can reduce the heat a little because there is enough heat and pressure. When it turns red you need to be careful: the temperature is too high.
Top-quality CookStar base
A great feature of the Vitavit collection is the CookStar base. This bottom is suitable for different heat sources. As such the Fissler Vitavit pressure cookers can also be used on induction. This bottom can not only be used well on induction, you can also easily switch pans with the CookStar bottom between different types of heat sources. Without the bottom warping, something that sometimes happens with less quality pans.
For safety purposes you cannot fill a pressure cooker to the brim. On the inside of the pan you will find an easy measuring scale. Keep the following in mind:
