Fagor America, the leader in ultra-efficient induction cooktops and time-saving pressure cookers, is pleased to announce the launch of their latest and most user-friendly pressure cooker yet, the Helix pressure cooker. This high quality 18/10 Stainless Steel pressure cooker is designed with two pressure settings 15PSI (High) and 8PSI (Low), an automatic pressure release, a MAX-line indicator that shows you the filling capacity of the cooker, a pressure indicator and the latest innovation, an automatic universal self-locking mechanism.
Fagor pressure cookers are not only fantastic tools for preparing delicious & healthy meals in a fraction of the time of traditional cooking methods (up to 70% faster); they are also equally useful tools for easily preparing a wide variety of foods. The Helix comes in 6qt, 8qt and 10qt capacities. All the Helix units include a steamer basket & trivet for added versatility and a recipe book with over 50 amazing recipes.
What sets the Helix apart from the rest of Fagor’s pressure cookers and all other pressure cookers on the market is the automatic universal self-locking mechanism. One of the biggest challenges when using a pressure cooker is assuring that you’ve properly and safely closed the lid. Fagor has solved this conundrum by removing the need to align the pressure cooker lid in order to properly close it and developed a lid that can be shut at any position. This new locking innovation ensures the utmost ease of use as it only requires the turn of a handle in order to lock and unlock.
When it comes to pressure cooking, most people who’ve tried one know that nothing is better for preparing your favorite foods such as tender meats, savory stews and hearty soups than a Fagor pressure cooker. What’s more is pressure cookers have quickly become a coveted piece of equipment for following a sensible, low-fat diet plan.Â Steam vegetables in no time or cook beans and grains in a fraction of the time with little to no pre-soaking required. Pressure cookers are a staple in many ethnic cuisines and are commonly used for preparing the most succulent regional dishes. They are fantastically versatile units that can cook almost all foods including risotto in 7 minutes, a whole chicken in 15 minutes and even cheesecake in 30 minutes! Pressure cooking takes a regular meal and turns up the flavor. Great for making average cuts of meat taste like a five star delicacy.
The Helix features an automatic pressure release valve that is easy-to-clean and a 10″ diameter base for better browning and searing. “We are excited about the newest addition to our pressure cooking collection” said Sara de La Hera, VP of Sales and Marketing. “This new unit is another vessel in your culinary arsenal that provides healthy and efficient cooking.”
