A pressure cooker is a pot that cooks food under high pressure. The steam that builds up inside the pot cooks the food faster than traditional methods. The increased pressure also raises the boiling point of water, which means that the pressure cooker can cook food at a higher temperature than boiling water in a pot. At Harris Scarfe, we stock a high-quality range of pressure cookers and multi cookers that will help you create filling, nutritious and delicious meals at home with ease, using a hands-off cooking method that's perfect for busy households.
