To cook faster, Prestige brings you pressure cookers with flat base. These are also available in various shapes and sizes. The price of pressure cooker ranges from Rs1, 030 to Rs1, 170. Go for a dark-coloured pressure cooker. This way, the ugly burn that can be seen from the sides of the base will not be visible. Washing greasy portions will no longer be a pain then.
