Hawkins Cookers Limited has been in business since 1959. It is the leader in the pressure cooker market in India and has exported its products since 1974 to various countries in each of the six continents of the world.
Worldwide, Hawkins has sold over 100 million units of pressure cookers and cookware by producing products of good design, good quality and considerable consumer benefit. Hawkins pressure cookers are listed by Underwriters Laboratories Inc., USA and/or Bureau of Indian Standards (popularly known as ISI).
Each pressure cooker made by Hawkins features an inside-fitting lid. This design is inherently safer than conventional pressure cookers. To open any Hawkins cooker, you have to first lower the lid slightly into the body of the cooker; and that cannot be done until the steam pressure inside the cooker falls to a safe level. Thus Hawkins pressure cookers are pressure-locked for safety – like a jetliner door! Each cooker is tested to be leak-proof. Along with a superior pressure regulating system, this ensures that Hawkins cooks quickest. All Hawkins pressure cookers are guaranteed for five years.
