Being that I work full time outside the home and also am a mommy wanting to provide healthy home cooked meals at home I knew I needed to find a way to do that in a quick and somewhat effortless manor. I started doing some research and found out a love of information on Pressure Cookers and the wonderful things that you can do with them. For those of you that don’t know what a pressure cooker is or would like to know more here are some of the wonderful benefits as listed on the Fagor website: They are FAST, which can help you Save up to 70% in cooking time! Your favorite recipes can easily be adapted to cook in 1/3 of the time. This was an AWESOME aspect that caught my eye. They are EASY to use and cook with, all you have to do is load the ingredients and liquids into the cooker, close the lid, bring to pressure and cook, then release and open the lid. It’s that simple! and one of the most important benefits to me is that cooking with the pressure cooker is HEALTHY, when cooking foods under pressure, up to 50% more vitamins and minerals are retained, with is AWESOME. That means you and your family are getting more from their meals. Also, shorter cooking times retain more nutritional values of food as well as the natural color. In addition, it cooks without oil!

I have really enjoyed using the pressure cooker and I am sure that you will also. You are able to make some AMAZING recipes in less time. Like some of the BEST cheesecake in one hour and without having to turn on the oven. Being in Southern California during the HOT summer months we try to not sure the oven because it heats up the house, the pressure cooker helped us find other way to make our favorites.
You can not ask for more. Plus the pressure cooker comes with a normal glass lid so you can use it as a normal pot if you need to or before/after the pressure cooking to follow the recipes fully. I also loved that the timer could be removed from the lid so you can take it with you or pull it out before you clean the item. This is an awesome unit that is easy to use. I would strongly recommend this to anyone. It would make a great gift for everyone on your list.
