speed up depressurizing/cooling your pressure cooker

cooling your pressure cooker by adding a cast iron pan heat sink

A safe way to accelerate cooling your pressure cooker is to add a heat sink.  Flip a cast iron pan on its face and set the pressure cooker on top.  The pressure cooker will rapidly transfer a portion of its heat into the cast iron pan.  Now you have a larger surface area to radiate the heat away from the pressure cooker speeding up cool down time. For additional cooling consider adding a desk fan.
