It is not the most economical pressure cooker. However, if you intend to use this pressure cooker for canning food, then it is an ideal utensil due to the quality of this product. According to information released by the USDA, when low-acid foods are to be canned, pressure canning is the only safe method to use. This is where the quality of the Kuhn Rikon 3918 Duromatic 7.4-Quart Top Pressure Cooker really comes into its own. Low-acid foods include vegetables, meat, and poultry.

The manufacturer’s list price is $270.00. However, you can benefit from purchasing online: Amazon are selling it for $233.51, a saving of 14%.

The pressure cooker measures 14 inches by 9 inches by 8 inches, resulting in the capability of pressure cooking up to 7.4 quarts of contents. Nevertheless, better results are obtained by reducing the content of food to be processed. As an example, brown rice takes quite a long time to cook conventionally. However, when brown rice is cooked within a pressure cooker, it is fully cooked within 45 minutes.

Regardless of whether you intend to use your Kuhn Rikon Duromatic 7.4-Quart Top Pressure Cooker to cook family meals or for pressure canning  seasonal produce, cooking with a pressure cooking can save as much as 70% of fuel energy that would normally be used for conventional cooking.

Pressure cooking is scarcely an innovative method of cooking but, using this amazing pressure cooker is a clean, quiet and efficient way of cooking, greatly reducing the amount of time cooking needs to take.

There is certainly no need to be concerned about using a pressure cooker. In fact, it is quite straightforward. Just load up the contents and place the lid. Once you click it into place the lid will automatically lock. Once locked it is only possible to re-open this lid when the pressure has been equalized. The beautiful innovation incorporated into the design of the Kuhn Rikon Duromatic 7.4-Quart Top Pressure Cooker uses a system of red lines that provide an indication of when the appropriate pressure has been achieved. At the end of the cooking time you have the option of a slow release or a quick release to undo the safety locking device on the lid: simply turn the knob and allow the remaining pressure to slowly disperse. The lid then opens quietly and without fuss. What could be simpler?
