Different Types of Pressure Cookers

Pressure cookers are excellent kitchen appliances. They are easy to use and take less time to cook food than traditional cooking methods. Pressure cookers work by sealing the pot inside an airtight chamber so that the pressure of steam builds up and forces the food to cook. There are many different types of pressure cookers, and each one has a specific purpose. Here are the main types of pressure cookers:
Traditional pressure cookers: These are the most common types of pressure cookers. They are made from stainless steel and look similar to a pot. They require a stove or heat source and feature a pressure regulator, which can be adjusted to regulate the pressure inside the cooker.
Electric pressure cookers: These pressure cookers use electricity to heat the interior of the pot. They are easier to use than stovetop models because they do not require any heat from the stove.
Instant pressure cookers: Instant pressure cookers cook food in a fraction of the time of traditional pressure cookers. They are easy to use, but they require electricity to work.
