HLF - HOME LIVING: NORTH WEST, Tuesday, June 1, 2010 5 Pressure cooker best » ADVERTISING FEATUREHOMELIVING Winter cooking can be a challenge. With the temperature dropping, the best way to keep your winter cooking interesting is to find new ways of preparing it. New values in food and lifestyle have led to a worldwide resurgence of interest in the pressure cooker, once a staple in most domestic kitchens but lately overlooked by tech-hungry, new- product-orientated consumers. Developer of simple domestic pressure cookers, Switzerland-based Kuhn Rikon, says worldwide interest in healthy food and energy conservation has led to a rise in pressure cooker sales. The company is currently marking the 60th anniversary of its Duromatic pressure cooker -- it has sold more than 6.5 million units since 1949. A key factor in the success of the pressure cooker, says Kuhn Rikon, is its ability to cook a meal in a third of the time of conventional cooking methods. It also reduces the consumer's carbon footprint, and keeps in the foods' natural vitamins and minerals. Other cooking methods, such as boiling and steaming, can leach out valuable vitamins and minerals from the food, whereas the pressure cooker requires very little water when cooking, meaning the food retains all its natural nutrients and original colour. The pressure cooker is of particular value to working families -- cheaper cuts of meat can be bought as pressure cooking converts them to tender, succulent cuts in no time. The special edition pressure cooker, commemorating Kuhn Rikon's 60th anniversary of Duromatic pressure cookers, features a beautiful bright red lid and stainless steel body -- with a limited production run of just 2009 units.
