Breaking News ! When you’re so busy that you barely have time to text your friends back, living a healthy lifestyle can be a struggle. One of the biggest barriers to eating well is lack of time so when it comes to cooking, speed is the key. Pressure cookers are a good choice for the time-stretched as they can be used to make meals around 30 per cent quicker than other appliances. They are sealed with a lid to create hot stream and pressure that cooks food fast and thoroughly, so you can make a hearty soup in minutes instead of hours, and aren’t to be confused with slow cookers – which use low heat and cook over longer periods of time. The pans only need a small amount of water to cook, helping retain the original vitamins and minerals of your food. They’re also highly energy efficient (thus money-saving). Dating back as far as the 1600s, pressure cookers became popular in British households during the Second World War and have come a long way since they were first introduced. These days, there are more varieties and they have lots of built-in safety features to prevent them from producing too much steam. Some of the newer models can also be used as a slow cooker and for cooking meat. Here are five of the best to buy now.
