Total Cost Breakdown
The size and shape makes it convenient to keep in your home.
The product is essentially non-stick which means the foods you cook inside will easily come off when they are done, making clean up a simple task.
- Many Options
The digital display and menu mean you can prepare lots of food items in various ways. There are recipes and automatic settings that make it easy to use.
- Heat Conductivity
The copper infusion here is beneficial because of its heat conductivity. In normal cookware, cheaper steels or metals, you get what are called hot spots. Hot spots are spots along the bottom or the sides of the cookware which are hotter than the rest, which means your food cooks unevenly. With copper, this is almost unheard of. As a result, you get precise heat, precise temperature changes inside of the pressure cooker, and perfect cooking.
- Not 100%
Like most of the cookware labeled with "copper" in the title, this one does contain legitimate copper, but it is not 100% made of copper. There is a difference. Copper cookware that is 100% copper is entirely made out of copper and professional grade, very expensive. Pieces like these are infused with copper, meaning some small part of it is copper, but not the whole thing. The small part of copper is strategically located to give users most of the benefits associated with copper but at a cheaper price.
- Copper Reaction
The downside to copper cookware of any kind, especially pressure cookers, is that it is highly reactive with foods. For this reason, most cooper pans are lined with tin or steel. Tin lining needs to be replaced every few years. Stainless steel lining is better. This prevents the taste of metallic copper from getting into your food.
- Different Taste
While you can certainly cook foods faster and achieve better results while cooking, you will get a different flavor compared to normal steaming.
How It Works
This pressure cooker works on the principle of steam. Sealed pots with lots of steam in them build up high pressure, which results in faster cooked food. As such, this pressure cooker is a sealed pot that has a valve controlling the steam pressure inside. When your pot heats up, the liquid inside forms steam which then increases the pressure inside of the pot.
Cooking something wet like vegetables or stew, the heat of the cooking is limited to whatever the water boiling point is. Steam though increases that boiled point which helps food cook faster. High pressure also forces liquid and moisture into your food faster which can help things like meat become very tender.
Extra high heat inside of this pressure cooker can brown or caramelize foods that is otherwise unattainable when cooking with liquid.
Tips & Tricks
- What to Cook
You can cook just about anything in a pressure cooker. Tough items like beans or chickpeas can be prepared in less than one hour. Rice can be done in minutes. Tenderized meats like roasts and braised meals are easy. Hard boiled eggs can even be cooked too, with the shells popping right off when done.
- Get to Know the Manual
You will want to get to know how fast your pressure cooker heats up, and the amount of time you need to cook based on what you are preparing. Depending on where you live, you will also need to account for your altitude. Higher altitudes actually increase the amount of time it takes things to boil, which can impact the cook time in your pressure cooker. You should try some of the Red Copper recipes first, then follow other cooking charts when venturing out on your own.
How it's Different from Competitors
