What is the Elite Bistro Pressure Cooker?
The Elite Bistro Pressure Cooker is designed to prepare dishes more quickly than traditional cookers through the use of extremely high pressures and temperatures. Once sealed for cooking, the pressure elevates and the temperature of water and steam rises above the normal 100ºC (212ºF) boiling point temperature. The Elite Bistro line of pressure cookers includes the following models:
- Elite Bistro 8-Quart Pressure Cooker
- Elite Platinum 8-Quart Pressure Cooker
- Elite Platinum 9 Function 4-Quart Pressure Cooker
- Elite Platinum EPC-1013 Maxi-Matic 10 Quart Electronic Pressure Cooker
- Elite Platinum 8-Quart 14-in-1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker
What’s the problem?
Because pressure cookers cook food quickly through the production of high heat and pressure, they can also cause serious burns if defectively designed or manufactured. Several brands are currently being recalled by the U.S. Consumer Protection Safety Commission (CPSC).
