Pressure cooking is just what the name says — cooking foods under pressure. You cook foods at a lower temperature, but under much higher pressure than in conventional cooking. The following table translates the pressure setting on your pressure cooker to temperatures and pressure levels:

Pressure Setting Cooking Temperature Pressure Level in Pounds per Square Inch (psi)
High pressure 250 degrees 13–15 psi
