I knew this nice little cooker once, but one day when I was a bit burned out, she got steamed at me, and that baked the whole thing... Oh, Wait. wrong thread. Sorry.

My wife has one. So far, I've not had anything out of it I liked. But then again, we've not experimented much with it.

I bought a pressure cooker instead, it works great.

So, are the extra 'instacooker' features worth the price? My mom used a pressure cooker long ago and I thought of buying one. I might end up on some NSA terrorist watch list if I buy a pressure cooker, like I'm not already. ;-)

Hey, when your first post is in the recipes section, you're supposed to speak in broken English (or pure nonsense) and include links to porn or something. :tap:

I figured my "nice little cooker" puns would get me tossed out on my ear.

Maybe if I post a recipe for rattlesnake stew...

I can cook a potroast in about an hour instead of 4 or 5 like the crockpot. Given that my wife and I are on the go a lot, the time savings are more than worth it.

Plus bacon wrapped meatloaf....

When I was about 4 years old I was in the kitchen watching my mother can tomatoes with her pressure cooker, and it exploded. It scared me, and I started crying.

I gave my crockpot away. I just didn't like the way food tasted. I'm scared of pressure cookers, as I just mentioned in another thread.

My moms had a weight that balanced on the outlet steam valve. I wonder how it could blow up?
I remember hearing the pressure cooker whistle as I watched The Twentieth Century with Walter Cronkite on Sundays.

I have no idea how it blew up, all I know is that it did.

The new electric ones have several safeties on them that makes them, well, safe. A pressure sensor and temperature sensor, if either goes off so does the cooker. Finally, an old mechanical standby, a gasket on the inside that will blow out and release the pressure in the event the sensors don't catch it.

Of course I am talking 1944-1945. I certainly hope they would have improved since then.

Wow.
That just brought back a memory or two.
I remember the lil' silver metal heavy thing, that sat on top of a porthole with steam spewing out. It sorta moved around a bit, pivoted.

Of coarse, all that was before we had Kroger and Food Lion.

First the pressure cooker, then Santa! You had a traumatic life at the age of 4, didn't you? :lol:
Well, that should explain a lot. :teehee:
