It might be time to check your pressure cooker gauge and there’s a local place to have that service conducted. University of Nevada Cooperative Extension’s Las Vegas office will conduct free pressure cooker gauge testing, by appointment only. Each test is about 20 minutes.

Pressure cookers are used for high pressure canning and cooking using water or other cooking liquid in a sealed vessel. As pressure cooking cooks food faster than conventional cooking methods, it saves energy. The trapped steam increases the internal pressure and allows the temperature to rise.

If you are interested in this free pressure cooker gauge test, email or call ‘Chelle Reed 702-257-2236 to set up your personal appointment.

Cooperative Extension’s Clark County Lifelong Learning Center is located at 8050 Paradise Road, Las Vegas, Nev.
