Prestige has been responsible for changing the cooking habits of millions of households in India; it demonstrated how one could cook a meal in minutes, the healthy way. To offer complete safety to users, the company has been at the forefront in introducing several innovations like the gasket release system (GRS), the gasket offset device (GOD) and the double lock system, all firsts in India. It was also the first to offer customers the pressure pan (1983) which has contributed to greater efficiency in cooking small quantities.
Since the 1990s, TTK Prestige saw that not only were there millions of Indians living abroad, but more importantly, there were tens of millions of others in different countries from the Americas to the Far East, whose food habits and cuisine may be unlike the Indian but compatible to pressure cooking and so, it reached out through the brand “Manttra” in the US. Prestige’s success in the Indian market has been echoed in markets abroad where it is sold as the Manttra range.
Manttra today, providing the widest range of pressure cookers in the US is now set to be the leading pressure cooker brand in USA. Manttra is available at major retail chains like Wal-Mart, Target, Kmart, Kohl’s, Rich’s / Lazarus, Burdines, Belk’s, Sears Roebuck, Macy’s and JC Penny amongst others.
