Question

Write down the approximate range of temperature at which water boils in a pressure cooker.



Solution


In a sealed pressure cooker, the boiling point of water increases as the pressure rises, resulting in superheated water. At a pressure of 1 bar or approximately 15 psi (pounds per square inch) above the existing atmospheric pressure, water in a pressure cooker will reach a temperature of 121 °C (250 °F). This increase in the pressure helps food to cook faster.
