Dedham, Massachusetts Nov 4, 2021 (Issuewire.com) – Miriams Earthen Cookware makes a simple-looking, yet powerful, all-natural pressure cooker with two (not ten) main parts
Have you ever used a pressure cooker and wondered what you need such complex equipment for to simply cook your meal? Turns out cooking under steam pressure can significantly reduce the cooking time of certain foods, we’re talking 20-30 minutes here…
I don’t know about you, but for me when it comes to cooking food, it’s both time and quality that matter. So, in that sense, I see some major drawbacks with conventional pressure cookers.
The Drawbacks of Modern Pressure Cookers
One of the major drawbacks is their complex design. Any popular electric pressure cooker is made from at least ten different parts, such as the following: a pot, lid, sealing ring, air vent, overpressure plug, lock pin, temperature sensor, pressure sensor; and a control panel backed by the microprocessor to customize cooking time, temperature, pressure, etc. and so on.
Like any other electronic gadget, the old models are slowly phased out with time and newer ones replace them, which means there are limited repair options. Imagine having to throw out your pressure cooker simply because you can’t find a replacement for that tiny pressure plug that decides to malfunction for no apparent reason… It’s a major deal-breaker!
Cleaning a gadget with so many parts can be difficult. One can never be too careful with the electronic parts, and one must protect them from water. Additionally, there are corners where you can’t reach to clean, and soon, they become a breeding ground for bacteria. Would you like to cook food for your family in an unhygienic pot? I wouldn’t!
Effects on Food
A pressure cooker saves cooking time — great, but how? It typically coerces food to cook with extreme steam pressure. Here is why this method of cooking can be problematic:
Firstly, the insert is made from metals or their alloys, which leach toxins — at least ten times more when heated. These toxins react to food and contaminate it. And we all know what these toxins can do to our bodies. Would you be willing to take such a risk?
Secondly, the heat from metal pots is just harsh. Remember how touching a hot metal pot burns your finger? It does the same to food tissues. As a result, the nutrients barely survive this ordeal and your cooked food lacks nutrients, flavor, and even color. Moreover, the steam is lost too because one must release it before the lid can be opened. Why is this steam so important? Because steam is a water-soluble nutrient that we can only get from our daily diet; these can’t be stored like fat-soluble nutrients.
Lastly, there is no way to check food for doneness in between. This means that if your food is undercooked or overcooked, you will only find out after the set cooking time (surprise!). This is yet another drawback of modern pressure cookers.
Now that the modern-day pressure cookers don’t sound so healthy and convenient anymore, it’s time we discuss an alternative to meet needs for nutrition and simplicity.
Miriams Earthen Cookware – a Powerful All-Natural Pressure Cooker with Just Two Parts
Just a few years ago, Miriams Earthen Cookware (MEC), a leading cookware brand in the USA, started making pots and pans from 100% primary clay, to solve this problem.
They incorporated key design features into their already well-functioning line of products to allow the pots and pans (yes pans too) to naturally condense the steam. How? By making lids in a way that helps them stay cooler than the pot and lets steam condense on their inside, allowing the steam to return into the food as water-soluble nutrients.
Moreover, they dropped the idea of glazing completely and chose unique hand-finishing that maintains the breathability of primary clay pots. This allows food to cook with a sufficient supply of air. The cookware design also allows the pot or pan to lock in moisture by letting only excess water evaporate through the semi-porous walls. And thanks to a simple yet innovative 2-part design, it is easy to clean, and you can check food for doneness at any time.
While on their way to making a healthier pressure cooker, MEC came up with a powerful cooking pot that could not only pressure cook but could also take care of almost all kinds of cooking. These include slow cooking, Dutch oven cooking, steaming, baking, making yogurt, stir-frying and much more. And what’s more, you can cook on any heat source – gas, electric, glass cooktop and in the oven!
Packed with so many features and with the ability to cook in the healthiest way possible, MEC offers a powerful range of cooking pots and pans that can replace any conventional cookware on any given day!
Head over to their online store and order pure clay pots and pans to try a healthier way of pressure cooking and more.
