Pressure cooker: convenient even at washing time

Tips to use and clean your recipe companion

Life in the kitchen changes after we start using a pressure cooker and discover that it holds no mystery! In addition to making meals more agile, it keeps the flavor of the food and is impressive in the most varied recipes.

Good for grains, potatoes, pumpkins, meats... It cooks ingredients 3x faster thanks to its sealing system, which compresses the steam inside the sauce pan and quickly increases the heat of the liquid. The higher the pressure, the shorter the time the water takes to boil and the faster the cooking.

After learning how to handle it, it is time to do a good job cleaning. Some tips for you to take good care of it:

- Never use abrasive products when washing, as they can scratch the stainless steel. Wash only with mild detergent and a soft sponge.

- Regularly clean the silicone ring to extend its service life. If necessary to replace it, never change to a model made of common rubber, as this could compromise its operation. The original replacement seal ring is available from Tramontina's Technical Assistance networks.

- Chlorine and substances contained in water can stain stainless steel. After washing, rinse with hot water and dry it with a soft cloth.

- Avoid leaving food in the sauce pan for too long. Salt can also cause stains and even corrosion.

- If white spots appear due to excess chlorine in the water or from food starch, clean it with a little vinegar or lemon juice.

- Tramontina also has a special spray to polish and remove stains on stainless steel products.

- Pressure Regulator: Pull up slightly and turn counterclockwise, unscrewing the piece. Remove the valve and clean the orifice under running water. After cleaning, replace the valve.

- Safety Valve: Before use, make sure it is not obstructed. If it is, clean it with a sharp metal object. 

Now that you know how to handle and clean your pressure cooker, it is time to learn some recipes, right? Enhance it your way and enjoy!
