Here’s a great way to protect your pressure cooker, kitchen surfaces and more – using a ceramic Pizza Plate!
We all keep our electric pressure cookers in less than ideal conditions. I often move mine on top of my gas range to take advantage of the range hood, and store the rest not far from my sink – where ironically all of my plugs tend to be.
I recently discovered that a ceramic pizza plate is the best surface for the pressure cooker to sit on. These plates are flat all the way to the edge, heat and water proof too. Also, the short ridge on the outside does not interfere with the electrical plugs.
Using a ceramic pizza dish as a base to your pressure cooker not only protects your pressure base from less than ideal conditions but if you have more than one cooker it makes it a snap to grab and slide the pressure cookers into “cooking position” (you know, not under the cabinets).
Here are the sizes and dishes I recommend for electric pressure cooker sizes. If you get one, snap a photo of your pressure cooker on the pizza plate/dish/tray to include at the bottom of this post.
