Plug and play cooking. Sur La Table

We expect a lot out of our electrical appliances, so much to the point that we take them for granted. In the kitchen, a press of a button can and does result in automatic meal preparation. With this type of convenience literally at our fingertips, it is no wonder that more archaic pieces of cookware often get buried in the back of the cupboard. Lost in that transition away from old-fashioned forms of cooking are the benefits that they can provide. That is, until somebody adds a plug.

The All-Clad Pressure Cooker is an electric model that updates the classic kitchen cookware. This pressure cooker plugs into the wall just like any other modern appliance and provides efficiency both in food preparation and in usability. Under increased pressure food is prepared in a fraction of the time as compared to traditional cooking. Electronic sensors monitor the device and keep pressure within a safe range, allowing for worry-free usage.

Unlike traditional pressure cookers, this electric model helps keep track of the cooking. The display counts down remaining cooking time and progress arrows show when the appliance is pressurizing. Users are given the choice of cooking with high or low pressure, and when cooking is complete, it automatically switches to a keep-warm setting. And perhaps most importantly, the device features a distinctive modern sensibility that ensures that it won't end up in the back of the cupboard any time soon.
