Pressure cooker. Historical artwork of the pressure cooker, La Marmite de Papin, invented by Dennis Papin in 1681. It consists of an iron pot with a sealed lid. The pressure vent (upper centre, labelled S) allows steam to escape and stop the pot from exploding. By increasing the pressure, water boils at a higher temperature and food will cook faster.
