The 8L Duromatic Hotel pressure cooker by Kuhn Rikon provides an excellent opportunity to batch cook at home in a pressurised environment, making it perfect for chefs and cooking enthusiasts. It has a range of features that help it stand out as a superior cooking tool, including an aluminium Superthermic sandwich base plate, which provides heat evenly to ingredients as they are cooked.
Additionally, the 8L Duromatic Hotel is constructed from premium 18/10 stainless-steel, ensuring that it can handle high loads of pressure without risk of damage. That quality is then further backed up by an amazing 10-year warranty.
The Duromatic Hotel range of pressure cookers are designed for professional use, and they are capable of excellent cooking performance. What truly helps them to stand out in the kitchen is the speed at which they can produce incredibly tasty dishes, and pressure cooking has been shown to reduce cooking times by up to 70%. Yet this doesn’t lower the quality of the dish produced, as the pressure allows for excellent flavour retention without the need for a long and slow cook.
Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers are also equipped with a Superthermic sandwich base plate made of aluminium. This plate allows for even dispersion of heat, even if the cooker isn’t centrally positioned on the hob. Having an even amount of heat throughout the base ensures all ingredients are cooked evenly and to the same level of quality.
The 8L Duromatic Hotel pressure cooker is made of some of the best materials available and it takes premium quality to a new level. The main body and lid of the cooker are made from pure 18/10 stainless-steel, which has been selected for its excellent durability in high pressure environments. Having a robust body ensures that this pressure cooker can maintain pressure levels without suffering any damage.
On top of its mainly metal construction, the 8L Duromatic Hotel is also equipped with side grips making it easy to pick up and carry. These grips are made of an insulating plastic that can remain cool while the surrounding metal surface heats up, preventing the risk of getting burnt.
Cookers in the Duromatic range work at incredibly high pressure levels. Therefore, it is important that the pressure is handled safely in all aspects. To ensure safety, Kuhn Rikon have included a triple overpressure system. The system works to ensure that the cooker can’t be opened while it is in operation, through a locking mechanism that is unmovable when under pressure.
The Duromatic pressure cookers also include a helpful pressure valve. The valve rises slowly as pressure increases in the cooker and it has 2 lines to indicate different pressure levels. The first line shows that the pressure has reached 5.8 psi and suggests that meals including rice or fish are complete. The 2nd line indicates the pressure has reached 11.6 psi and should be used as a guideline for root vegetables and meats.
