Electric Pressure Cookers are becoming popular day-by-day over the conventional pressure cookers.
This is happening due to the number of benefits electric pressure cookers offer over the conventional ones.
Let us see what these benefits are.
Benefits of using Electric Pressure Cookers
Does not use gas: This is one of the biggest advantage of using electric pressure cookers. They come with a heating element which completely eliminates the use of gas stoves.
Energy Efficient: One can argue that the conventional pressure cookers can be used on an electric stove than a gas stove. While that is true, this is not an energy efficient way of cooking as compared to electric pressure cookers. Electric Pressure Cookers are specifically designed to consume less amount of electricity.
Control over Pressure: Electric Pressure Cookers offer control over the pressure needed for cooking unlike conventional cookers. They monitor the pressure build-up inside the cooker and release it if needed without your intervention.
Control over Timing: This is another big benefit of using electric pressure cookers. We can exactly set the time we need cooking to take place. Conventional pressure cookers require guesswork to know if food is properly cooked.
Safe to Use: Electric Pressure Cookers come with a lot of safety measures to ensure that you are not hurt in case undesired amount of pressure gets built-up inside the cooker. Conventional cookers lack these safety features and are prone to cause damage.
Ease to Clean: Most of the electric pressure cookers come with removable Inner Pot which makes it easier to clean the cooker from inside. Some of the Inner Pots are non-stick coated or made from stainless steel, making them that much easier to clean and maintain.
With all these benefits, Electric Pressure Cookers surely look to be one of the better inventions made in cookware so far.
