On this edition of Steam Culture, we catch Brent hitting a few out on the baseball field. Today, we learn about the pressure cooker, originally named Papin's Digester. Brent tells us all about the inventor, Denis Papin and how he invented the pressure cooker. A pressure cooker cooks food quickly using a combination of steam and pressure.
Do you know the story behind the pressure cooker? After a few mishaps, Denis Papin realized his invention needed a pressure reducing valve that we use today. Watch the video to learn more about steam history.
