Using an electric pressure cooker instead of your stove top or oven to cook meals saves money on energy costs. If you use pressure cooker instead of your electric range an average of three times per week, you'll save roughly 165 kilowatt-hours of electricity per year.
Plus, pressure cookers take a fraction of the time—merely minutes—required to cook a meal on the stove or in an oven. Unlike those of a generation ago, today's models are designed with safety in mind. And rumor has it they can cook almost anything.
