Hard Anodised Body
The beautiful, durable black finish given by 60 microns thick hard anodising has two benefits. It makes the pressure cooker absorb heat faster making it more energy-efficient. And your pressure cooker stays looking new for years.
Automatic Safety Valve
The automatic Safety Valve is positioned such that, if it operates, the steam and food are deflected safely downwards.
Superior Pressure Regulation
The New Improved pressure regulation system regulates pressure better, cooks faster, saves more fuel, is easier to insert and remove and reduces sprouting of frothy foods (such as dal).
Longer Lasting Gasket
As the lid fits from inside, the gasket does not get rubbed sideways, or cut or scraped every time the pressure cooker is opened or closed. Further, exposure of the gasket to food acids in the pressure cooker is minimized due to the protection given to it by the rim of the lid.
Sturdy, stay-cool Handles
Your pressure cooker comes with stay-cool handles which are easy and comfortable to hold while cooking. The handles are designed to provide optimal comfort and protection from excessive heat when the cooker is in use. The metal screw and rivets used to fasten the handles are safely recessed to limit the chances of your hand coming into contact with hot metal during cooking.
Certified by UL
UL Certificate No. SA5984. Underwriters Laboratories Inc. (UL) is an independent Worldwide safety analysis, testing and certification Organisation. Headquartered in Chicago, UL was founded in 1894. The UL mark is widely accepted and recognized as a trusted symbol of safety. Their certification includes evaluation and factory surveillance of products by their field representatives worldwide. Several Hawkins models are certified by UL, such models carry the UL mark stamped on the product external base, and printed on the product carton.
Food-grade superior Stainless Steel Lid
The food grade stainless steel lid along with the hard anodised body all over inside and outside ensures the highest levels of hygiene and durability.
The Hawkins Pressure-Locked Safety Lid
The unique Hawkins Pressure-Locked Safety lid ensures that when there is pressure inside the cooker, the lid is pressure-locked like a modern jetliner door. It cannot be opened until the pressure has fallen to a safe level.
Better visibility of Food
The Contura Black pressure cooker body is hard anodised all over, inside and outside, which, coupled with the stainless steel lid, ensures high standards of hygiene and durability. These metals are known to be less reactive with the juices and acids in various foods.
Unique Curved Body
The cooker body is given the right curvature. Food is easy to stir during the cooking that is done prior to pressure cooking. This helps prevent the food from sticking or burning and clean-up is so easy. For difficult dishes which require a lot of stirring, the Contura with its rounded sides is an ideal pressure cooker.
Fixed Sturdy Pivot
The fixed sturdy pivot assists the self-centralizing lid in locking securely and safely in place, ensuring a steam-tight seal. It is also designed so that no undue pressure is put on the plastic handles, as it is part of the metal handle itself. Thus the handles last longer.
Perfect Sealing through better design – ‘Play’
The lid handle bar is so attached to the lid that there is extra space for deliberate ‘play’ or movement. This ensures perfect sealing of the lid with the rim of the cooker body. This is an advanced design feature. Do not try to tighten the bar and remove this ‘play’.
