Talk to me about: electric pressure cookers

Postby texsuze » Fri Jul 13, 2018 7:28 pm

DH wants to get one of these appliances, based on rave recommendations from his brother. My only experience with pressure cookers are living with the antiquated, stove-top, noisy, scary ones that mom used to cook strange food in that I never liked :D My own brother does a hilarious imitation of the pressure cooker of our childhood days, complete with sound effects....

Anyway, having googled the new-fangled ones, I suppose it becomes a matter of which features, size needed, and reliability (i.e. which ones last more than a year). We are a 2-person household who does not do 'fancy'. And I presume they don't get hot enough to melt a Silestone countertop 8-)

Any thoughts, recommendations, things to consider would be appreciated!

I have an electric pressure cooker (the Instant Pot) and I love it! It is soooo handy and not only is good for making cheesecakes but can do a whole bunch of other stuff with it. Lately I tend to do a lot of hard boiled eggs and chicken. Typically though I'm not organized enough to thaw stuff but I can chuck in the frozen chicken breast no problem. This past Thanksgiving I did a 6 lb frozen turkey breast in my Instant Pot and was done in an hour. I stuffed the bottom of the pot with rosemary, thyme and sage and you could taste the herbs (not strong) throughout the meat.

I bought mine just before Ultimate Dressage closed down based on all the reports. After reading them all I decided I had to have one :lol: :mrgreen:
