Fernandes, Iris

'Easiwork' pressure cooker, c 1936.
4 0 c m
actual image size: 23cm x 32cm


The cooker is of insulated cast aluminium, with a lid secured by a removable yoke, and has an Easiwork pressure gauge. A spring-loaded piston acts as a pressure regulating and warning device. The cooker's airtight structure creates high pressure and allows water to go beyond its boiling point. This leads to food cooking more quickly.
