People put very little thought into how the way that they prepare their food effects the nutritional value of the end product. They will steam them until they are of their preference no zero regard to having cooked away so much of their nutrients. Research shows that the longer you cook your food and the more liquid you use to cook it, the more nutrients you will lose. By using a pressure cooker you will manage to retain so much flavour, nutrients and texture to your ingredients.

A pressure cooker can cook most ingredients upwards to 70% faster than other cooking methods. This means that you save on energy as well as time and in most cases a lot of dirty dishes. Who doesn’t love the sound of that?
