If your towels look flat, either after you have bought them or when they have been in your linen cupboard, it is easy to return them to pristine condition.

Simply wash the towels, line dry them until they are almost dry, then finish them off in your tumble dryer on a warm cycle. This will bring them back to their thick, soft, fluffy best.

If you prefer to line dry them, do so in a shady spot instead, away from direct sunlight.

A quick video on Youtube teaching how to cook lamb shanks with a pressure cooker. Usually cooking lamb shanks could take up to a few hours to get the meat falling off the bone, but with a pressure cooker you could do that in less than 1 hour!

How does a Pressure Cooker work, and why can Pressure Cookers cook faster than normal pots and pans?

  • Pressure Cooker is usually made from stainless steel or aluminum, but it will always consist of an airtight lid
  • When food and liquid boils in the airtight pressure cooker, the steam will build up and increase the pressure in the pressure cooker.
  • Since the steam cannot escape the pressure cooker, this will raise the temperature in the cooker from about 100 to 120 degrees, hence it will cook double or triple the time faster than normal cookers do

What’s the benefits with using a pressure cooker?

  • Pressure Cooker makes your cooking fast, easy and healthy
  • Pressure cooker retains all the natural colours, vitamins and minerals of the food
  • Reducing traditional cooking time up to 70% – Save up your energy bills!
  • You can cook vegetable as quick as 2 minutes or a beef stew in 30 minutes!
