Silit Pressure Cooker
Silargen - Made in Germany From the first universal cookware to the most modern pots and pans made from the unique material Silargan®, the Silit brand has always been strongly associated with a passion for cooking. The high-quality processing and an instinctive feeling for what customers want - high-quality cookware with innovative functions - impresses people all over the world. Pressure cookers are placed at the heart of Silit's product portfolio and have been produced by the brand under the name Siko since 1927.What does Siko stand for?The name Siko actually means Sicomatic and has become a generic term for pressure cookers used in domestic kitchens. It is made up of the German words Sicherheit (safety), Kochtopf (cook pot) and automatisch (automatic). The word itself therefore summarises everything that's so impressive about pressure cookers. This is because they are safe to use and the cooking function works automatically after pressing just a few buttons.Silit pressure cookers and their evolution over timeAt first the main priority concerning pressure cookers was for people to be able to use them to prepare a meal quickly. Design was therefore less important than function. But it had a huge potential for development. Over time, Silit pressure cookers became colourful and more decorative. This was possible due to the use of special materials, and the spectrum of colours proved an inexhaustible source of new colour variations. But things kept on progressing from a technical perspective as well. So in 1975, the first pressure cooker in the world with the control unit in the handle was born: the Silit Sicomatic® S. Ten years later, the Sicomatic® L burst onto the scene with a valve which did not require any maintenance, and some years after that the Sicomatic® T impressed with its ease of use, attractive design and was also the first to be produced with the new material Silargan®. The latest top model, the Sicomatic® econtrol with detachable handle, has been on the market since 2010. It features an innovative single-hand spincontrol by which all important functions such as the opening and closing of the pot as well as the setting of the cooking stages can be operated comfortably and in the shortest time possible.Pressure cookers are the ideal partnerThe pressure cookers of today are no relics of a bygone era. They are currently experiencing a revival - and quite right too, since they are the ideal partner in the modern world we live in today. Pressure cooking means being gentle with those important nutrients and vitamins. It also means that you can cook a tasty meal from healthy ingredients in the shortest possible time whilst still saving energy. And what's more, all pressure cookers are Made in Germany.
