The higher temperatures trap steam allowing temperatures to be higher than a normal boil.
The comfort handles on both sides make for an easy time handling the pressure cooker. We always suggest using both hands. The 4 quart Mirro pressure can become heavy depending on what you are cooking. However with the locking-lid design and release valve you cannot always rely on them to save you from dropping it.
I am sure that you have cooked with multiple pots and pans on the stove. Many of us have, so before I got my 4 quart mirro pressure cooker I had a hard time justifying the need for it. This little guy has come in handy quite a few times when making things such as gravy, sauce, and candy spreads but I’ve got to be honest. I don’t use it as regularly as some of my other pressure cookers but it is small enough that it takes up little space in my cupboards so it’s a keeper.
