Power cookers, also known as pressure cookers, are a convenient and fast way to cook meals for the entire family. A power cooker is like a slow cooker on steroids. Just like a slow cooker, you can set it and forget it, without having to wait 10 hours for your food to be ready. This device uses pressure to force heat into your food, resulting in meals that are quick yet tender.

Despite cooking meals that are quick, easy and delicious, power cookers aren't the most common kitchen appliance. One reason could be that people view them as dangerous, and while this may have been true in the past; modern power cookers are full of safety features that make them no more dangerous than other appliances. Read on for some tips to get you started making delicious meals with your power cooker.
