Steam your way to extra time

Stephen Covey, author of 7 Habits of Highly Effective People, famously said, “The key is in not spending time, but investing it.” This month we’re offering tips on how to shorten the amount of time you spend doing chores in the kitchen so you can “invest” that extra time on yourself or your family.

Speed-cooking with steam? This might sound strange, but pressure cookers are quick and efficient, and they promote healthy eating.

Pressure cookers are great for saving time in the kitchen. They cook food more quickly than conventional methods, with the steam significantly decreasing cooking times. Sliced carrots cook in 1 minute; corn on the cob cooks in just 3 minutes; and whole potatoes cook in 5–12 minutes.

We also love pressure cookers because

  • They’re energy efficient and don’t heat up the kitchen.
  • Foods better retain nutrients because of the short cooking times.
  • Cleanup is minimal — no more stovetop messes! And some models, like the Sitram Pressure Cooker, are dishwasher safe.
