Bought one a few years back after sister told me I was gonna KILL myself canning stuff with meat the same as things like tomatoes or pickles. It's NOT a high end or large capacity... Presto pressure cooker/canner. Works FINE for things that are hard to cook SMALL, like chili and veggie soup.
What do you cook in your pressure cooker? Any tips to pass my way?
In the past couple of weeks I've used mine for pasta in sauce, braised turkey breast, chili, steamed whole cauliflower, two batches of dried beans, and probably a few other things that I'm forgetting at the moment. If you search this board and the Home Cooking board, you'll find plenty of tips and recipe suggestions.
I bought a 6 quart pressure cooker a few years ago and wish I had purchased a larger pressure cooker. I might get one of the really big ones 23 quarts to do pressure canning of meats.
I use our primarily for meats a d beans, not necessarily together. The funny thing about the meat. I cook about the same meat in the pressure cooker as I do in the slow cooker, it just depends on my timing (ha!).
