Many people love pressure cookers because they cook meals fast. I’ve seen recipes to cook veggies or meat in as little as 15 minutes! Who wouldn’t want dinner ready that quickly?
Unfortunately, there is a bit of a misconception when it comes to pressure cookers. While the actual cooking time at full pressure may indeed be 15 minutes, it can take about 20 minutes for the pressure cooker to reach full pressure, and another 20 minutes for it to depressurize enough to open it. So that 15 minute cook-time? It just turned into 55 minutes.
VitaClay machines seal, and so they create an environment that seals in steam, moisture and nutrients, but the built-in steam valve also releases pressure to avoid the high-pressure cooking environment.
And many meals can be made in VitaClay in 30-45 minutes, start to finish! No waiting for it to build or release pressure: so your food is ready when you are. You can also delay-start cooking time on the multi-cooker models, so if you want dinner ready when you get home, you can do that.
VitaClay is different from other slow cookers as it has much faster cooking times for every dish: slow cooker recipes that call for 8 hours on low setting would be cooked for 2 hours or less in VitaClay. A recipe calling for 2 hours on hi in a slow cooker would only need about 30 minutes in VitaClay on stew setting, on average.And since VitaClay can cook everything from soups and stews to broth and roasts, to rice and even yogurt, there isn’t much this machine can’t do, and fast! With VitaClay, there is no reason to have multiple kitchen appliances: slow cooker, rice cooker, yogurt maker, stock pot, pressure cooker—because VitaClay can do it all!
