Q. How does the vapor seal work?
A. The vapor seal is designed to cook vegetables with little or no added water. Rinse your vegetables, place in the pan, turn on medium heat, wait for whistle /vent and reduce to low. The vapor seal is formed when the heat is reduced from medium to low. A ring of water will form between the pan and cover. The reduction of heat reduced the pressure inside the pan creating the vapor seal. This process allows you to cook foods quicker with less heat.
