Pressure cooker holds own in modern kitchens

The Fagor Futuro 10-Quart Pressure Cooker/Canner combines speed and convenience, two attributes that are always welcome in the today's kitchens.

Shiny and fast, the pressure cooker looks good in any kitchen.

Convenience in the kitchen takes many forms. Sometimes it's all about multitasking appliances; sometimes it's about foods and ingredients that come prepped.  Speed, of course, is frequently a factor, as time is always of the essence. And sometimes it's a bit of all of the above.

The Fagor Futuro 10-Quart Pressure Cooker/Canner combines speed and convenience into one unit. Easy to use, the stovetop unit reduces cooking time by increasing pressure inside the pot. Just add your favorite liquid along with your ingredients, lock down the lid, and choose between a low and high setting. When done, the pressure is released via the dial mounted on the handle. A triple-valve-safety system plus a safety lock ensures that the cooker cannot be opened before all the pressure is released.

No kitchen gear is ever truly up-to-date unless it can do more than one thing. It is true that this pressure cooker can be used as a pressure canner, hereby storing easy always-available ingredients, but a nice additional touch can be found on the included steamer basket: it doubles as a food grater. Constructed of 18/10 stainless steel and designed to work on gas, electric, ceramic, and induction stovetops, the pressure cooker is a handy device that fits right in with the modern kitchen.
