It Shines Like Silver
You might think, what does shine have to do with cooking? But according to Physics, shining materials are more keen to absorb heat than rough ones.
Mirro 92122A is made of heavy-gauge polished aluminum. And it is rust-proof. This enables the cookware to get heated evenly throughout the body. Thus, the pressure buildup and eventually the cooking is done uniformly.
Kill Your Worries For Large Dinner Parties
We all like to attend dinner parties. But that might not be the same as the hosts of the parties. Just imagine cooking all that amount if food within such limited time. It is a great stress.
You can say goodbye to such worries. Mirro comes with multiple quart options. We can call it “Large Pressure Cooker” due to its size. Model 92122A is more than 10 quarts when it comes to the minimum size.
It’s not just about a large quantity of food. It’s also about the time required to cook all that food. You can cook a lot faster and better with 92122A than with the conventional pots and pans.
Pressure Can Your Favorite Foods
You can already assume, that with this “Spacy” Pressure Cooker, you can also “Can” a large amount of food. The Mirro 92122A Pressure Cooker has the capacity to hold 16 pint-sized jars or 5 full quart-sized jars. It actually comes with a cooking rack, especially for canning. Yup, it is a Canning Pressure Cooker.
Canning at home is an excellent way of storing your favorite food for future consumption. The ones you find outdoors are not always healthy. So, Mirro can help you preserve food in a safe way for your family.
This model is one of the “Easy to Handle” machines when it comes to canning. In fact, it is right up there with All American 921 – 21/2 Quart Pressure Canner or Presto Pressure Cooker/Canner.
Cook With Ease
Mirro 92122A has three options for pressure viz 5 psi, 10 psi & 15 psi (pounds per square inch). This allows ingenious ways of cooking. This pressure cooker is equipped with a pressure maintaining system. This enables the cooker to start cooking when the required pressure is obtained. And the handles are cool-to-the-touch, so no worries of getting sore fingers at the end.
Mirro Canning Pressure Cooker Assures Your Safety
Stovetop pressure cookers, especially when it is a large one, may seem to frighten you a bit. But do not worry, because it is safe for you and your kitchen.
The safety features include:
- The lid is equipped with “Sure Locking” mechanism.
- There’s a safety release plug.
- Another gasket on the side for pressure release.
- Cool-touch handles.
You can be sure that the lid is locking tightly each time when you cook. Thanks to frequent testing, I found no leakages and breaking due to over pressure.
The “Over-Pressure Plug” or safety release plug is usually sealed tightly to allow pressure build-up. When pressure passes the critical point, the cap opens up and lets the extra pressure out.
Mirro 92122A Pressure cooker has a side gasket. Just in case. It also allows extra pressure to get out before causing any trouble.
The handles are “Cool Touch”. Meaning, they remain cold even if you are dealing with a hot cooker. It helps to secure your hands when you bring down the cooker from a hot stove.
Pros of the Cooker
- The cooker is rust free due to the making process.
- It can store 16 pint-sized jars of 5 full quart-sized jars.
- Safety assured: sure lid lock mechanism, safety release plug and side gasket for pressure release.
- 3 pressure options: 5 psi, 10 psi & 15 psi.
- Cool-touch handles.
- Mirro Pressure Cooker parts are replaceable.
Cons of the Cooker
But, we should also let you know that Mirro 92122A has some not-so-good things about it too. They are:
- It might be too large for some people to use, compared to their kitchen and ability.
- Except the 3 pressure cooker parts, no other part is replaceable; though they have chances of getting damaged.
- Personally, I won’t advise you to use it on Glass Top Stoves.
