LOL, I think I am to to be honest. I remember them blowing up a few times in my mom's kitchen. I don't think we ever really got all of the tomatoes off the kitchen ceiling the last time it happened, LOL. I'm thinking though, if I had a tried and true recipe with detailed instructions, I may be able to muster up enough nerve to actually cook a meal in the thing.I'm plum skeered of pressure cookers
Hubby swears he is gonna learn to use this one to cook a venison roast and I'm like :yikes: The deer ribs only take a few mere minutes to tenderize, but I would think a whole roast would take more time. The longer that thing is on the burner, the more nervous I get. LOL, I won't let dd anywhere near the kitchen and I stand there ready to :bolt:. Dh thinks I'm :loop:I want to learn how to cook beans in the pressure cooker. I tried a few weeks a go, but the foam from the beans clogged the steam vent so I turned it off. Only after a few minutes of cooking, the beans were mostly cooked.
I like the idea of cooking up a bunch & putting them in the freezer.
The only thing we cook now in the pressure cooker is what DH actually cooks himself. My mom taught him how to use it to cook venison roast in & it comes out very nice. Very easy too. He fixes that for his family when they come over for dinner.
Hi Cookie,I have one and I LOVE IT!!! I've never had a blowup. Been using one for 10+ years. I used it today to make Homemade Chili. Than canned 10 Quarts in the pressure cooker. :hungry:
