Prestige Clip On Pressure Cooker Review 2021
These multipurpose pressure cookers come with several components. One thing we noticed was that Prestige includes a detailed manual along with the cooer. It contains safety information, usage information and component details.
Let’s look at key features of these cookers.
Regular pressure cookers come with an inner or outer lid that has to be aligned. On top of this, you have to ensure that the gasket is placed currently for you to be able to close the pressure cooker. It is not a very difficult process, but Prestige Clip On pressure cooker makes it very easy to cover it. There is no need to align the lid in these cookers. The lid can be placed in any position and be closed easily by rotating the top-most knob. All you have to do is place the lid on the cooker, rotate the knob in clockwise direction.
Highlight of these pressure cookers is that they are modular in design. This means that you can use the same lid in all the utensils of the clip on range that you are using. Hence, you these lids interchangeably, be it kadai or handi or cooker or casserole.
Enhanced Safety Features
The clip-on lid system is not only easy to use, but also provides safety. Prestige has ensured that these cookers are very safe by adding 4 advanced features.
Let’s take a look at these features:
Weight Valve Assembly: Weight valve ensures that the pressure is regulated effectively at all times.
Gasket Release System (GRS): Gasket release system works as second level of safety. This feature kicks into action in case of failure of weight valve due to blockage or any other reason. As soon as the system detects rise in pressure and low movement in weight valve, this mechanism releases excess steam within no time. If this happens, it is advised to switch off the gas stove and check the valve for any blockages.
Metallic Safety Plug: You will be happy to know that there is another safety mechanism in place in case the weight valve as well as GRS fail to function. As the name suggests this is an alloy plug that melts to release pressure if pressure inside the cooker increases, and valve & GRS both fail to release the steam. This can usually happen if the cooker contains insufficient amount of water or if the vent tube is blocked.
Pressure Indicator cum Safety Device: The safe pressure indicator on top of the lid is a multipurpose device. Firstly, it locks the lid, secondly it does not allow the lid to be opened when the pressure inside the cooker is high. Let’s understand this.
When the dish in the cooker is being prepared, pressure starts building up. During this stage, the pressure indicator gets pushed above the level of the lid handle. This will give you an indication that sufficient pressure has been attained and it is ready for whistles. To ensure safety, during this stage the lid gets locked and you cannot open the cooker.
Similarly, once steam is released, the pressure indicator will drop below the level of the lid handle. This will give you an indication that the cooker can be opened.
Ability to Serve from the Cooker Pot
Prestige Clip On pressure cookers come with two handles attached so that you can serve in the cooker itself. This is quite convenient as removes the need to use a separate pot. Not only this, it also comes with a nice-looking glass lid that you can use to cover the pot while serving. On top of this its stylish design ensures that you feel no hesitation while serving food in the cooker.
Many Prestige Clip On cookers come with induction compatibility. It means that you can use them on not only induction, but also on has stoves.
Prestige Clip On pressure cookers mostly come in either hard anodized aluminum or stainless steel. This means that these cookers are not only long lasting but also look quite elegant in design. On top of this hard anodising as well as stainless steel surface react less with the acids and juices in the food. Moreover, many Prestige Clip On pressure cookers can be used with hot plates and halogen cook tops apart from induction stoves and gas stoves.
Regular aluminum cookers require effort in cleaning. However, hard anodized material and black colour of these pressure cookers make them quite easy to clean. Just make sure not to use rough scrubber to clean them as it can damage the coating. Finally, both hard anodised and stainless steel cookers are long lasting as compared to regular pressure cookers.
Go for hard anodized aluminum if you do not want food sticking onto the cooker surface. This allows for easy cleaning.
Also, it does not have a traditional handle, instead come with side handles, which is more convenient.
While regular pressure cookers in the market are priced at INR 1,000 to INR 1,500, Prestige Clip On pressure cookers are priced higher than these cookers. While the price is higher than conventional cookers, we feel that the pricing is justified, given its features, design and durability.
