We use the express pot due to lack of time and fullness of taste Express pot people often use due to lack of cooking time and the desire to feel all the fullness of flavor. Everyday cooking and awareness of the importance of food choices has resulted in new dietary trends, a kind of boom of culinary TV shows, new growers and producers of organic food.
Advantages of using an espresso pot: -shortened cooking time -preserving the original taste of food -easier digestibility of some foods -hard foods become soft and juicy faster -Due to shorter cooking and the use of less liquid, nutrients are preserved The disadvantages of the espresso pot are negligible because they can be mastered by experience when using this aid. Disadvantages would be the inability to try dishes and add spices during cooking, the inability to check the condition of dishes in a pot during cooking, and the inability to cook foods that have different cooking times together. Due to the lack of time for all-day cooking, people choose various kitchen utensils with which the market today is flooded and rich. The express pot is one of the excellent and super useful kitchen utensils because it imitates traditional cooking methods from various cultures and all climates. In Japan, they used very heavy and well-drinking lids that leak a little steam. That is why foods are cooked with minimal evaporation.
The dish was softer, easily digestible and cooked faster. The taste was more intense. All types of espresso pots work the same way. Food and a small amount of water (either chicken stock or beef stock, etc.) are placed in the pot. Put the pot on a high temperature or turn on the electricity directly. The liquid in the pot creates steam after the pot is closed. The pressure increases. The temperature rises to 120 ° C. The lid locks. The pot leaks steam through the safety valve. The purpose of this valve is to regulate the temperature and pressure inside the pot. The dish is then cooked on a light steamer at the time required by the food being cooked. Each espresso pot comes with instructions for the length of cooking most foods. These instructions only apply to that particular type of pot. Each manufacturer gives its own instructions.
The high temperature of the water and the steam under pressure cook the food from all sides. Foods become softer faster than in an ordinary pot. In the espresso pot you can cook a pre-soaked large amount of hard legumes (beans, chickpeas), some harder grains (barley, brown rice), all kinds of legume stews, vegetables, stews, sauerkraut and the like. An espresso pot is an important helper for some dishes (meat stew) made from a cheaper and harder piece of meat because the meat quickly becomes soft and juicy. In an ordinary pot, cooking this dish would take several hours with the constant supervision of the chef. Using an espresso pot is easy because the pot will not activate if not all safety precautions are followed. Today on the market there are: 1. Classic express pot with new and improved closing mechanisms used for cooking on the stove. There are usually 3 safety mechanisms that prevent accidents. 2. Freestanding electric express pot with digital interface and a dozen mechanisms that do not allow improper use. These pots are ideal for people who are afraid of a possible explosion during cooking. 3. Smart express pots whose management goes through applications. These devices have some additional functions (they can be for slow cooking, rice cooker, steam cooker and the like). 4. Mechanical express pot — never fill this pot above the safety mark inside the pot. Do not cook food for longer than the specified time. The pot hisses slightly during cooking (if the hiss is too noisy and violent, it means that the pot is used incorrectly). After each use, all valves and the tire should be thoroughly washed and completely dried.
