Calphalon Introduces Pressure Cooker With Innovative One-Button Locking Lid
Locks and Unlocks with the Push of A Button for Safe and Easy Use
ATLANTA (April 15, 2013) – Calphalon®, the leader in premium cookware and kitchenware, announces the launch of the Calphalon 6 Qt. Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker. With its one-button locking system, uniquely designed lid and intuitive pressure-regulating controls, the Calphalon 6 Qt. Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker is exceptionally safe and easy to use.
Calphalon spent over two years developing the 6 Qt. Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker, integrating safety and convenience into every aspect of the product. "The Calphalon Pressure Cooker has a variety of new technologies that keep it safe, yet simple to use," said Sr. Brand Manager Justin Johns. "The cover can be secured to the base in any position – you don't need to thread the lid or align it to get it on correctly – and when you push the locking button, you can actually see the rim lock securely to the base."
In addition to the one-button locking system, the Calphalon 6 Qt. Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker has a spring-loaded pressure indicator pin that pops up when full pressure is reached, making it easy to monitor cooking times. The pressure dial can be turned to select high or low pressure as well as safely release steam after cooking.
The Calphalon 6 Qt. Stainless Steel pressure cooker makes preparing meals easy, flavorful and nutritious. It cooks food in less than half the time of traditional methods while locking in flavors and preserving vitamins and minerals. “We know that people want to prepare healthy meals but are pressed for time,” said Johns. “The Pressure Cooker is great for weeknight meals, and foods like rice, short ribs, pot roast or even tender risotto will be done in record time."
With a brushed stainless steel finish that complements both traditional and contemporary kitchen décor, the Calphalon 6 Qt. Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker is compatible with all stovetops, including energy-efficient induction.
The Calphalon 6 Qt. Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker is priced at $199.99, and is available exclusively at Williams-Sonoma.
