Hi all,

My husband just bought a pressure cooker. He says his mom in South American has several in different sizes and loves it, and makes food fast. I did make beans in 1/2 hour last night and they came out really soft and nice. However I am still intimidated that I feel I have to follow a recipe exactly as I cannot open the pressure cooker and check how the food is doing or tasting, and I actually still prefer to cook things like beans in my slow cooker where I can check and taste, adding ingredients as things go along. Has anyone used a pressure cooker? Do you like them? Do you have any tips or recipe ideas?

Dory

In addition to the tips you'll no doubt get from our forum members, you can check the comments on the post I wrote about pressure cookers last year.
Congrats on the new appliance!

Dory, I'm surprised that no one spoke up. My hubby gave me one for a birthday a few years ago. It's a bit large, but I love it anyway, now that I'm no longer afraid of it. Since it's been a few months, I hope you love yours also. I will release pressure and check what I'm cooking from time to time, because I figure so long as I'm not letting it cool off, the pressure will come back pretty quick. I try to wait on seasoning the food till almost done, except chicken which the family complains about the smell of unless I add a bay leaf or something. I don't know, but it seems the heat "dilutes" or seems to diminish the character of the food.... to me.
