Kuhn Rikon’s Duromatic pressure cookers are built for ease of use and efficiency. Pressure cookers lock in heat and moisture to cook food in a third of the time without drying it out. In fact, pressure cooking tough meats can actually make them tender. Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers are equipped with a multi-ply base for even cooking, and range in size from 2.5 to 12 quarts. See the table below for a comparison of the Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers available at Pleasant Hill Grain.
Pressure Cooker Accessories and Parts
Kuhn Rikon Lid w/ Short Handles: This metal pressure cooker lid fits all models with a 22 cm (8.7-inch) diameter.
Kuhn Rikon Lid w/ Long Handle: This lid fits 22 cm (8.7-inch) diameter Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers. You may find the long handle easier to grasp than the traditional short handles.
Kuhn Rikon Flame Protector: If you plan to use your pressure cooker on a gas stove, particularly if you have one of the shorter pressure cookers, pick up a flame protector. This protects the bottom of the pressure cooker from damage that can occur over time from use over a flame.
Kuhn Rikon Steam Trivet: Using a steam trivet makes steaming much easier by lifting the food off the bottom of the pot so it cooks with steam rather than the intense heat of the pot. The steam trivet is included with some Kuhn Rikon cookers.
Kuhn Rikon Glass Lid: With the glass lid you can use your pressure cooker as a regular cooking pot. (A glass lid is included with the Kuhn Rikon Duo Set.)
