What is Instant pressure release? And when shall I use it?
Once the cooking is done, you still have to wait till the steam pressure inside the cooker comes down and you are able to open the lid.
One way is to wait for about 15 to 20 minutes, where the pot pressure dissipates naturally over time and you are then able to open the lid. Depending upon they type of food it can take low or high time, as an example, low-liquid meals (like chicken drumsticks) will take less time high-liquid meals, like soup or chili.
When you are short of time, you can use this manual pressure reduction option which is called as Quick release.
Please take care while doing so, since opening of quick release will make the super hot steam shoot! However even you use this method, very high-liquid meals, like soup, may still take about 15 minutes to release the pressure.
Using first method, you allow food to cook slowly under pressure, which will save electricity as well as taste will be better, however in some cases if you are in hurry, quick release can still be used.
I recommend Instant Pots, because of its functions, it combines features like Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Sauté/Browning, Yogurt Maker, Steamer & Warmer. Warming means keeping food warm up to 10 hrs is really impressed me as well as I love Yogurt Making in it. Instant Pots are not noisy as compare to other cookers. Also, Instant Pots don’t release steam & trap aroma of food, so you can feel the freshness of food while eating.
