Multi purpose Fagor 8-qt stainless steel pressure cooker

The Fagor pressure cooker is versatile. It can be used on its own to cook all kinds of vegetables, poultry, meats (pot roast, stew, ragu) creamy soups, legumes, grains and rice.

The Fagor pressure cooker comes with a steamer basket and a trivet for steaming foods and cooking pasta. It steams foods faster than a regular steamer. The basket is large enough to steam all kinds of poultry, seafood, fruits and vegetables. The trivet keeps the basket above the water level while steaming and prevents pasta from sticking to the bottom when cooking pasta.

Place trivet in a cooker, then add enough water for steaming. Place steamer basket with meats or vegetables on the trivet and lock the cooker. Steam products required time or until desired crispness or softness reached.
