In this article we would be looking at the 6 safety features of modern pressure cookers. The old pressure cooker made of aluminium had rubber plug in the lid and if you didn’t turn down the gas or you left it in the stove too long the rubber plug will pop up and the food will follow. Nothing like that nowadays as the new pressure cooker has been designed for total safety, convenience and ease of use unlike what you have with the old pressure cookers.
Lid Safety Lock
The lid safety lock of the modern day pressure cooker prevents the pressure build-up if the lid is not closed properly. It also prevents the lid from opening until all the pressure is released.
Pressure and Temperature Sensor Controls
Next we have the pressure and temperature sensor controls. These sensors make sure the power cooker maintains even heat and pressure by automatically activating or deactivating the power supply.
Backup Safety Release Valve
We also have a backup safety release valve in the modern day pressure cookers, so if the pressure temperature sensor control should ever malfunction and pressure builds beyond the maximum setting the backup would automatically kick in and release the built-up pressure.
Clog Resistant Feature
Also we have a clog resistant feature. This is present in the lid of modern pressure cookers and it prevents food from ever blocking the steam release port.
Spring Loaded Safety Pressure Release
Another unique feature of the modern day pressure cooker is a spring-loaded safety pressure release. This is there as another backup and in the unlikely event of the other safety features fail. This spring-loaded device is located underneath the heating element, if the pressure or temperature gets too high it automatically lowers the inner pot. This separates it from the rubber gasket to let the steam and pressure escape around the pot.
Temperature Cut Off Device
The last safety feature of the modern day pressure cooker we are going to be talking about today is a temperature cut-offs device. Should there ever be a malfunction and the internal temperature rises beyond the safe limits, the device will cut off the power supply and not automatically reset.
So those are your six safety features of the modern day pressure cookers engineering into every pressure cooker. So now you can enjoy cooking delicious meals, faster, healthier, tastier, stress-free, carefree and problem-free. The modern day pressure cookers are easy, fast, and most importantly safe to use.
