After watching Iron Chefs on TV use pressure cookers to produce delicious food in minutes, I decided to give pressure cooking a try. This pressure cooker will not break the bank and it's easy and safe to use. My 12 year old made chicken soup in it on the first day I opened the box. I love that I can prep my ingredients early in the day, pop them into the pressure cooker and have a tasty stew or soup in about 30 minutes. So far we have made a couple of soups, cooked a couple of different kinds of squash (7 minutes for spaghetti squash!) and one or two stews. Tonight I am going to give pulled pork a try. The cooker is a bonus for families who need to pull dinner together in 30 minutes or less. The instructions include a number of recipes and all have been very good.
