Fissler Vitavit Pressure Cooker 8L

Made in Germany, the Fissler Vitavit Comfort 8L Pressure Cooker is designed to make pressure cooking safe, reliable and easy to use. There are several features which makes the Fissler Vitavit Comfort one of the premium pressure cookers available on the market.

First of all, you know you have closed the lid correctly when a click is audible and a colour display in the handle switches from red to green (see thumbnail). Only then the pressure can build.

Once the pressure cooking commences, the Fissler Vitavit Comfort Pressure Cooker uses a traffic light display to indicate the appropriate actions required to maintain safety:

Red means the temperature is too high and needs to be reduced.

Yellow means the stove can now be turned down,

and Green means the set temperature has been reached and the cooking time begins.

The Fissler Vitavit Comfort Pressure Cooker also has 2 cooking levels, a gentle setting for delicate foods such as fine vegetables or fish, and a speed setting for meats and stews.

Other features also includes a removable handle to make cleaning easy, and a Cook-Star All Stove base which makes the Vitavit Comfort  heat quickly and evenly, as well as making it suitable for use on every stove type.

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!
