The answer is below.

Work Step by Step

The boiling point of water at sea level pressure is 100 degrees Celsius. This caused a problem for cooks, for they wanted to heat things at above this temperature, but they could not because the water would just evaporate. However, by creating high pressure in a pressure cooker, boiling point increases, meaning that the food can be cooked at a higher temperature.
