Welcome to the world of pressure cooking. With a Presto Pressure Cooker, you can discover how fast and easy it is to prepare a wide variety of delicious foods—especially foods that emphasize good health and nutrition along with good taste. The pressure cooker is perfect for the way we live and eat today. It's ideal for preparing many of the lighter foods that help keep us healthy and fit. It preserves flavors and nutrients, tenderizes meat and, best of all, it cooks foods three to ten times faster than ordinary cooking methods. And, using the included special rack, it's even possible to cook several foods in the pressure cooker at the same time without the flavors intermingling. Made from luxurious stainless steel for long lasting beauty, it is ideal for use on regular, smooth-top, and induction ranges. A tri-clad base featuring a layer of aluminum sandwiched between two layers of stainless steel assures even heating. A complete 64 page instruction/recipe book, which contains easy-to-follow instructions and flavourful recipes, is included. Replacement sealing ring available HH # 4082-209.
