How Do Pressure Cookers Work?
Pressure cookers work by using pressurized heat and steam to cook foods faster. Most pressure cookers have a housing/heating unit, an inner pot, and a locking lid with a pressure release valve. When cooking, the lid is locked in place and as the inner pot is heated, pressure increases inside.
The locked lid should be designed to stay in place under pressure. When the food is done, the user should be able to use the pressure release valve to allow steam to escape, then safely remove the lid.
What's the Problem?
Dozens of pressure cookers have been recalled due to safety concerns, including explosions. If these pressurized appliances are defective, there is the possibility of an explosion, spraying scalding food and liquids for several feet and releasing shrapnel that can injure anyone nearby.
