(State­Point) Pres­sure­cook­ing may sound in­tim­i­dat­ing, but it’s im­por­tant to keep in mind that it’s ac­tu­ally a sim­ple process that can save you time, en­ergy and money.

Not only does a pres­sure cooker use up to 70 per­cent less en­ergy than a stove, it com­bines high pres­sure and high heat to dra­mat­i­cally re­duce cook­ing times, sav­ing you as much as two-thirds the time it takes to cook with a con­ven­tional stove. An­other ben­e­fit? More vi­ta­mins and min­er­als are re­tained by pres­sure cook­ing veg­eta­bles as op­posed to boil­ing and steam­ing.

Us­ing a pres­sure cooker is dif­fer­ent than cook­ing on a stove­top or in the oven, so the first few times, fol­low a recipe to get the feel for liq­uid ra­tios and pre­vent you from try­ing a pres­sure cooker. Once you have a few strate­gies down, it can be­come a use­ful tool to pre­pare con­ve­nient, quick meals for your fam­ily.
