Here at Healthykitchens, we want to offer the best pressure cookers we can find to our Canadian customers, so we carry Kuhn Rikon Pressure cookers from Switzerland. Cooking your food with a pressure cooker has many advantages! We not only can make foods faster and easier but can help you save money on your food bill as pressure cooking meats, for example will let you choose a less expensive cut and produce a delicious, tender result. Dishes such as soups and stews, that require a long cooking time, will take about 1/3 the time in a pressure cooker. Making beans from scratch will require no pre-soaking, and also takes about 1/2 the time of regular cooking. We like to pressure cook our pork ribs before putting them on the barbeque to insure total cooking and a juicy tender rib when its finished. The several safety features added to these pressure cookers make them easy to use and worry-free. Click here for Safety Features

Modern, safe, and innovative, this is not your grandmother's pressure cooker!
Food retains more nutrients--Here's how the Duromatic works: Because very little water is needed, and because Kuhn Rikon's pressure cooker is a "closed system" with no oxygen exposure, fewer vitamins and minerals are lost to the cooking water or dissipated into the air, leaving more nutrients in the food.
Flavors & colors are preserved and enhanced--Tough foods become tender, while flavors blend and merge as though slow-cooked. The bright colors and fresh flavors of vegetables are retained and whole grains and legumes cook in a fraction of the time of other cooking methods. Food is more appealing, and healthier. Low- and no-fat cooking
Low and no fat cooking--The interiors of our pressure cookers are virtually non-stick, too, so you need less fat for cooking, and since flavors are retained and enhanced, you don't need fat for flavoring, either--Another healthy benefit to cooking with a Kuhn Rikon Duromatic!
Everything cooks to perfection in a Duromatic pressure cooker, from vegetables and meats, to legumes and grains, to luscious desserts!
Your own chicken, beef or vegetable stock in 30-40 minutes
These pressure cookers make it easy to put healthy, delicious meals on your table any time--after a long day working or playing, or at a moment's notice when unexpected visitors drop by.
How It's Possibe (or How It Works):
All Duromatic pressure cookers have a thick aluminum base sandwiched between layers of stainless steel, so they heat up fast and brown evenly.
Airtight seal and trapped steam cause pressure to build, and the temperature rises beyond what it could reach at normal room pressure.
This higher temperature and pressure cook food up to *10 times* faster than conventional methods.
Result? Creamy, delicious risotto in *7 MINUTES*, rather than the usual 40 minutes.
