A pressure cooker is made in such a way that when the lid is well sealed and tightly locked down the vapor pressure rises with temperature and the pressure can’t relieve itself by pushing the lid up. The energy you put into heating the food and water stays in the pot and heats up the pot faster, after a certain amount of time pressure inside of it reaches to its limit and creates enough power to push the lid up and escape.
