Instant Pot IP-DUO60 Review
How does pressure pots work?
When a pot is sealed and does not permit steam to escape while cooking, the boiling point of water increases as the pressure increases and the pressure built up inside the cooker makes the liquid inside the pot to rise to a higher temperature before boiling.
Denis Papin, a French physicist, invented the pressure cooker in 1679, which was used over a stove. People adopted the conventional pressure cookers during world war II because they wanted to save fuel considering the short time it took to cook meat.
On January 9th, 1991, a Chinese scientist, Mr. Yong-Guang Wang, filed the first electric pressure cooker patent, (patent No. ZL91100026.7). which is currently owned by the No. 1 electric pressure cooker manufacturer, Midea.
Cooking with the electric pressure cooker over the years provided experience with different cooking profiles, such as simmering, steaming, braising, slow cooking, warming, rice cooking and stewing by using different combinations of cooking temperature, pressure and time duration. This led to the new generation electric pressure cooker, the programmable multi-cooker.
A conventional electric pressure cooker is great when it comes to cooking, but a programmable multi-cooker is out of this world.
