Thanks to the capacity for preparing large quantities of food, pressure cookers are perfect for use in a professional kitchen, as well as cooking inexpensive meat cuts into juicy feasts in only a short amount of time.
The range of pressure cookers available at SousVideTools.com are all made of durable stainless steel as well as a safety overpressure valve and are suitable for all hobs including induction, so it’s really just a case of selecting the size you need.
Remember, when thinking about the liquid capacity of your future pressure cooker, don’t forget to account for leaving up to a third of the cooker unfilled to allow steam to build in the unit: essential for optimum results.

Here’s our simple guide to buying Pressure Cookers
Why buy a pressure cooker?
A pressure cooker works on the simple principle of steam pressure; in short, it’s a sealed pot with steam inside which builds up a high pressure environment which helps foods to cook quicker.
You can cook, within reason, almost anything in a pressure cooker; from rice, chickpeas and beans (far quicker than by other methods) to foods that need to be tenderized like braised meats and roasts.
There’s very few foods which you can’t cook in a pressure cooker and it’s a convenient way to speed up the cooking process.
In short, the main benefits of pressure cooking are:
- Faster cooking
- Foods retain nutrients
- Use to preserve foods
- Less energy used in cooking
