What is a Pressure Cooker?

When cooking, there need to be some form of liquid into your food that will be heated by the cooker and transformed into a steam. Because of the very hot pressure that is produce when cooking, it is advised not to inspect the food while the pressure cooker is on action, wait until the food is completely cooked, then release the vapour. Releasing the steam at the end of cooking will help you to open the lid safely reducing the risk of being burned by hot steam.
