How does a pressure cooker work? It's actually pretty simple - much like the technology used to propel those big steam engines - with a blast of build-up heat. In this case, pressure is created by bringing to a boil any liquid inside the closed pressure cooker. The trapped steam increases the internal pressure and temperature. Once food is cooked, the pressure is slowly released and you are ready to open the cover. So, any food that needs long hours on the stove top or the oven can be quickly and efficiently cooked in a pressure cooker at a fraction of that time - the only thing to remember is to have sufficient liquid to get the steam to built up.

In their most basic form, rice cookers do exactly that – they cook rice! While they don't necessarily speed up the cooking process, they certainly make it easier. All you have to do is measure the rice, add water, and set it to cook. At the end of the cooking period, some of the water will have been absorbed by the rice, while the rest will have boiled off. Once this has occurred, the unit will either switch to "warming mode" or will simply turn off. Rice cookers can also be used to cook hot cereals, desserts and steam vegetables.

About the Guest
From a young age, Debra Ann Murray has been passionate about food and cooking. Growing up in rural New Hampshire, Debra's family tended a large annual garden which fed them throughout the year. In the spring, she would help collect sap to make maple syrup. Debra describes the experience, "I thought my Grandmother was a magician. No matter what we brought her from our gathering - whether berries, grapes, or things from the garden - she would transform them into the most delicious meal or baked goods. You could just feel the love that came from everything she made."
Over the following decades, Debra's passion for cooking and hospitality would grow. She would work in her family's sandwich shop, at catering companies and in restaurants and bars. Eventually, Debra took a job as a food stylist at a TV network. Working behind the scenes, she prepared meals for several on-air guests and high-profile personalities. The celebrities on the network took note of Debra's talents and hired her as their assistants and stylists.
Stepping out from behind the scenes, she soon took center stage, working side-by-side with her high-profile partners. As her career progressed, she authored nine cookbooks and began hosting shows. In 2013, Debra joined EVINE Live where she presents and demonstrates superior-quality kitchen products.
