Faster cooking of stews, soups, risottos and some desserts, with a more intense flavour as less cooking time retains the taste better. Pressure cookers work in stages. First the food boils without pressure, pushing air out of valve. Once pressure builds the pressure safety pin locks lid closed. Trapped steam builds pressure until desired setting reached and then the food starts cooking.
