I’ve fallen in love.
I recently bought a pressure cooker from CSN Stores. My review promo code plus it was on sale, so I got a nice model and cost me very little.
I wasn’t sure how I’d like using it at first. Sure it’s faster, but would it be more of a hassle?
Definitely not! The lid snaps on for safety. It requires less water. And significantly less time to cook, meaning less energy.
I only got the 4qt since I usually cook just for myself, and this was plenty large.
It comes with a steamer tray, that can also be used as a grater.
Take one: Not so successful. I didn’t let the beans cook for long enough. To solve the problem I just repeated the step.
It still took significantly less time to cook with the pressure cooker vs. standard cooking method.
Take two: Success! Just bring the pressure cooker up to high pressure, then switch it to a lower setting and cook for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat and let the pressure decrease naturally. Takes about 10-15 minutes, and then you can open the lid (away from your body), and drain.
Easy as that!
Do you own a pressure cooker? If so, what do you usually use it for?
Have you tried cooking winter squash in it? That’s something I’d like to try.
