Pressure Cooking Recipes, tips and resources to help guide and simplify your cooking experiences with the pressure cooker.
Pressure cooking has received a major update lately. Pressure cookers have become a fantastic stress-free way of cooking great meals quickly.
There are many different types of programable pressure cookers on the market –
- Instant Pot – 6 Qt 7-in-1 Multi-Use Programmable Pressure Cooker, Slow Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Sauté, Yogurt Maker and Warmer
- Cosori – 6 Qt Premium 8-in-1 Programmable Multi-Cooker (Pressure Cooker, Rice Cooker, Steamer, Warmer, Etc.)
- Cuisinart – 6 Quart 1000 Watt Electric Pressure Cooker (Stainless Steel)
At the time of my research, prices range right around $100. Do your research – look at the different options each brand offers and pick the one that best fits your families need.
I opt’d for the Instant Pot and here’s why – because this is a fairly new piece of equipment I wanted to stick with the name brand as most of the references I found specifically referred to the Instant Pot.
I will confess, Initially I was afraid to use it. Pressure cooking = scary, right? I contacted a colleague and she gave me two super easy recipes to try – that would take away the “fear” associated with using a pressure cooker.
Pressure Cooking Tip – Do not place your Instant Pot or pressure cooker under a cupboard because when it vents, it releases a powerful blast of hot steam that lasts for several minutes. Over time, this blast of hot steam could damage a wooden cupboard.
The recipes turned out great and I was proud that I gave it a try! But I still did not begin using it and developing recipes until our oven died on Thanksgiving Day – to read more about the day the house nearly caught on fire click here….
