History of the Pressure Cooker

You may enjoy pressure cooked meals like this meatloaf recipe, but have you ever wondered about the invention of the pressure cooker itself? If you aren’t familiar with how a pressure cooker works, it’s a method of cooking food using water trapped within a sealed pot. As the steam tries to escape, it creates heat inside the cooker, which allows for food to be cooked much more quickly. This is a handy discovery made by Denis Papin in France in 1679. As a physicist, Papin was known for his studies on steam and was invited to join the Royal Society of London for his invention. Following Papin were several other inventors who made their own versions of pressure cookers in Germany, Spain, and the U.S. In fact, the American inventor Alfred Vischer presented his Flex-Seal Speed Cooker at the 1939 New York World’s Fair. I’ll bet you never knew how much of an impact your little pressure cooker had on the world’s history!
