With smart solutions for creative cooks, Kuhn Rikon combines technical know-how with attractive design in everything from their cooking tools to pressure cookers.
The top rated Anniversary Edition pressure cooker has a 3.75-quart capacity and a reputation for sending older pressure cookers straight to attic storage. The advantage lies in the visual indicators that let you see the exact time and pressure. Other features include an aluminum core for even heat conduction, an integrated lid locking system, and multiple safety release systems. You'll spend 1/3 of the time you might have spent in the kitchen while effortlessly making low-fat, healthy food.
When it comes to tools, you can't mention Kuhn Rikon without highlighting their famous Swiss Peelers, boasting super sharp carbon steel blades can tackle vegetable skin as tough as a butternut squash with ease. Newer popular items include the corn zipper, which effortlessly removes row upon row of kernels from the cob, ready to throw into salsas, soups, stews and salads. And in the baking category, the cookie press makes shaped cookies, cheese straws and even mashed potato piping look like child's play. (With its trigger mechanism, you can even use it with one hand behind your back.)
Getting back to the basics, brightly colored Kuhn Rikon knives are not just there to look pretty. Their extreme sharpness is bolstered by a nonstick coating. And from the paring to the melon knife, they all come with their own safety sheath. Another popular basic tool is the Kuhn Rikon can opener called the auto safety lid lifter. Like magic, there's not a sharp edge or spill in sight when you're done.
