Fagor Pressure Cooker Featured on "Food Network Star"

LYNDHURST, N.J.-The Splendid pressure cooker from Fagor played a key role on "Food Network Star," the Food Network program that spotlights up-and-coming television chefs.

The cooker was used by contestant Emily Ellyn, part of a team headed by chef Alton Brown, to create a chicken posole (a kind of chicken stew) in less than 30 minutes. The dish won the competition in an episode that aired two weeks ago, making Ellyn a finalist in the show's eighth season. This season of "Food Network Star" features teams headed by Brown, Bobby Flay and Giada De Laurentiis.

The Splendid pressure cooker prepares appetizers, entrees, soups and desserts. Its suggested retail price ranges from $79.99 to  $129.99, depending on size.
