Hungry and hurried? Make food as easy as 1,2,3 with a Fagor Pressure Cooker

My Grandmother used to work Italian miracles with one of those old-fashioned pressure cookers.
Steam would hiss, the top toggle would shake worse than Elvis and I would pray that the cooker wouldn't explode.
It never did.
But it came thisclose.
So I decided to explore the easy use of the modern day pressure cookers.
And I find the best from Fagor America, the leader in ultra-efficient induction cook tops and time-saving pressure cookers. Also delicious: The launch of their new line of pressure cookers with a splash of red flavor, what indeed look like “Cayenne” pressure cookers.
First of its kind in the U.S. market and made entirely in Spain, these high-quality stainless steel pressure cookers are designed with two pressure settings (high and low), an automatic self-locking mechanism, automatic pressure release and a 'max' line indicator that alerts you of filling the pressure cooker past its capacity. (Grandmama used to fill her old cooker to the very top. No wonder!) The Cayenne features an easy-cleaning auto pressure release valve to reduce food particle build up, a visual pressure indicator and a 10-inch diameter base for better browning and searing.
Fagor pressure cookers are not only fantastic tools for preparing fast, they cook easy and healthy meals in a fraction of the time used towards traditional cooking methods. (I timed twice at about 70% less). When I bought my Cayenne cooker (I took a 6-quart pot, though I could have opted for 8-quart wonder), I also got a 5-piece set that included a pressure cooker lid, a glass lid, a pasta/steamer basket and a recipe book with more than 50 amazing recipes.
When it comes to pressure cooking, most people who’ve tried know that nothing is better than a Fagor pressure cooker for preparing comfort foods such as tender meats, savory stews and hearty soups. What’s more is pressure cookers have quickly become a coveted piece of equipment for following a sensible low-fat diet plan. Steam vegetables in a flash or cook beans and grains super fast with little or no pre-soaking involved.
I made three pork dishes, baked ziti, a few fish and some incredible Grandmama old-time faves. Pressure cookers are also fantastic for making puddings, custards, even cheesecake! Fagor also includes a collection of delicious recipes to get you started.
Suggested retail price for the Fagor Cayenne Pressure Cookers begin at $119.99. For more information on Fagor’s line of pressure cookers, cookware and small electrics please visit: Also visit visit
