Hawkins Bigboy Pressure Cooker Bigboy 18 Litre: BB 18
The Bigboy range has been specially designed to cook large quantities of food quickly and economically. It is most useful in restaurants, hotels, canteens in factories, hospitals, schools and colleges. Also, canteens in many civil or military government establishments are using the Hawkins Bigboy.
Actual cooking trials in 22 litres Bigboy pressure cookers show that there is a saving of 46% to 57% in gas consumption when cooking 15 to 16 kg of tur dal, chana masala and mutton masala. These quantities will cook in 29 to 48 minutes and would serve 50 to 100 persons. The savings in fuel alone will pay for the Bigboy pressure cooker in less than a year.
The 18 and 22-litre Bigboy pressure cookers have a pair of sturdy lifting handles attached to the sides of the pressure cooker for convenience in handling the heavy weight carried by such pressure cookers. The plastic handles of all Bigboy pressure cookers are made from reinforced fibreglass for extra strength. Similarly, all other components of Bigboy pressure cookers are made for heavy-duty. A chain is attached to the vent weight to prevent loss in busy kitchens.
The Benefits of Hawkins Pressure Cooking :
Hawkins pressure cooking can reduce normal cooking times by as much as half. Economical foods such as legumes (lentils, dried peas, and beans) and tough cuts of meat can be cooked to perfection in a fraction of the normal time. Because food cooks faster in a pressure cooker, you save fuel, and therefore money. Scientific literature indicates that certain nutritive elements such as proteins and vitamins are better retained by pressure cooking. Steaming is ideal for low-calorie, low-fat cooking. The higher temperature while pressure cooking gives more hygienic food. Closed cooking in super-heated steam may better evoke the natural flavors of the food-producing delicious results. A wide range of foods, whether parts of recipes or entire meals, can be cooked in your Hawkins.
The stated volume of all pressure cookers is with the lid closed. Cooking capacity in a pressure cooker is less than its full volume. The pressure cooker body should never be filled more than two-thirds it is capacity. This is to safeguard against blocking the steam vent/vent tube and to leave enough space to allow steam to circulate. Certain foods, however, such as soups and other liquid foods, foods such as lentils and rice which expand during cooking should not be loaded more than half the capacity of the cooker body. Dals that sprout, such as tuvar and moong, should not be loaded more than one-third the capacity of the cooker. In the 5 liters (5¼ quarts) Hawkins, the two-thirds capacity is about 13½ cups/3.2 liters, half capacity is about 10 cups/2.4 liters and one-third capacity is about 6½
If the normal escape of steam is blocked, the safety valve will operate. The safety valve will also operate if there is insufficient water in the pressure cooker and it boils dry, causing the temperature to rise beyond the normal operating range. The fusible alloy in the safety valve melts at the required temperature and releases pressure. The safety valve can be replaced as shown here.
The steam vent seats the pressure regulator and is the outlet for excess steam. The steam vent is also the point at which the lid handle is connected to the lid.
The lid comes assembled with the detachable rubber sealing ring. It can be removed from the lid curl with the fingers. The sealing ring can be easily put back by slipping the lid handle through the sealing ring and patting and pushing it down all along with the lid curl until it is seated properly. The Futura Sealing Ring works best if the side with the words "OTHER SIDE UP" faces down.
