Pressure cooker notes:

1. Read the instruction manual. This is one of the most important things to do before starting pressure cooking. Every pressure cooker is different and has its own set of instructions that you need to follow. You should know the safety features of your pressure cooker, such as the location of the steam release valve and button, and whether the body of the pressure cooker feels cool to the touch while cooking.

2. Add enough liquid. When you use a pressure cooker, you need enough liquid in the pot to reach the pressure and cook the food properly. The liquid rule in pressure cooking is to always add at least 1 cup of liquid unless the recipe states otherwise. The liquid will help create enough steam to cook the food.

3. Start with simple recipes. Pressure cooking can be intimidating, so it's wise to start with a few simple recipes to get you comfortable with this cooking method. Once you feel more confident, start experimenting with more advanced recipes.

4. Use this cooking method to add flavor. A pressure cooker can lock in flavor and help preserve the texture of food, creating tastier meals. Use the inner pot to sauté vegetables or roast meats to add flavor to the dish before pressure cooking.

5. Use the pressure cooker for desserts and side dishes. If your pressure cooker has a ceramic pot, you can cook a main dish and a side dish at the same time. It's perfect for one pot meals. But did you also know that you can make desserts in a pressure cooker? Get a springform pan for fuss-free cheesecake and custard that won't crack.
