With a device like these more Microwave users will use the device for cooking as the company expects.
The advantage of the new Prestige MicroChef is that it blends the advantages of pressure cooker and microwave and since it takes less time to cook food, the users also save on power bills. It also maintains the essential nutrients of food that is usually lost in conventional cooking. The product has been designed in such a way that the users can cook rice and sprouts simultaneously.

The gasket offset device makes sure that if the user does not close the lids, the pressure does not build up. The pressure membrane regulator releases extra pressure when the cooking is going on. There is a visual pressure indicator and a safety plug as well. It is available in two shades.
