Pineapple Print Lace Neckline Short Sleeve Baby Dress
Pineapple Print Lace Neckline Short Sleeve Baby Dress Review
Veggie for Life: This is my first pressure cooker and I really like it. For this price, it is a good choice for those who aren't sure if they will use it much. It is especially useful for vegetarians. Beans that normally take 2 hours to simmer in a sauce pan are done in 20 minutes in the pressure cooker. I was afraid to use it at first but there are safety features which should make you comfortable using it. As long as it is under pressure, you cannot open the top.Although I do like this product, it is overly large for my needs. If you just plan on cooking a cup or two of beans at a time, I would recommend getting the 4 qt version of this product. Because the pressure cooker is so fast, there's really no need to make large batches of things.
Ven: I never really thought I would be writing a review to praise a pressure cooker. But, anyways I am. Some of the most common problems that people face with pressure cookers are: loud sound, too many whistles and food that sticks to the bottom never comes off while cleaning. This cooker is a pleasant surprise, because none of these problems happen with this Presto. I simply dumped lentils, carrots, peas and pearl onions altogether into this cooker and boom, after 30 minutes, the lentils soup was ready. Now, you may think what is so special about this. Well, here is the interesting part. Generally, when lentils are cooked in pressure cookers, they appear like separate lentil seeds cooked individually and do not gel with the vegetables together to form into a running soup. But, after cooking in this Presto cooker, the whole thing turned out to be a perfect soup, even without me putting any extra effort to mix the vegetables with a spatula. It blended the lentils and vegetables in such a beautiful way that it was just ready to eat. Now, here is the good part, it did not make annoying whistles, it did not pour even a single drop of water or soup out of the top and the inner side of the lid is immaculate even after cooking three cups of lentils. So, that means, nothing was spilling during the cooking process. It is the most controlled and well-designed cooker I have ever used in my whole life. Trust me you will not be disappointed. Whenever, you cook in this cooker, it will make you feel like something healthy is in store for you to eat and also gets you excited to eat it hot from the stove and of course contributes to a much more healthy lifestyle.
Vicki L. Hawse: I love my pressure cooker. Super reliable and if you follow the directions, it always cooks perfectlly Brown rice is cooked in 12 minutes! My first lesson was to factor in the amount of time it takes for the pressure cooker to cool down enough to open the lid. That usually takes another 10 minutes - if you are trying to orchestrate all your food being ready at the same time for a hot meal. I am guessing the cool down time is also part of the cooking process. The instruction/cook book that comes with it is very right on and helpful. Very east to clean, make sure you take out the rubber gasket from the lid and clean it well after each use. I have read that pressure cooking retains more nutrients in the food than any other type of cooking. Makes sense because so little steam or anything escapes.
Victor: it cooked a nice meal, however, after very first time cooking there (whole chicken), the bottom of pan browned at some spots. I have tried everything, and cannot get those brown spots out :(. I used a good amount of olive oil, white wine, and 1/3 of water.
WanderingStar "USA": I have owned and used this cooker for several years. It is the perfect size for my 2 person household. Many empty nesters and those with small kitchens will find this a terrific product.The accessories make this pot multifunctional and expand its usefulness. There is :- a steamer basket- a glass lid- a strainer lid - which locks in place like the pressure cooking lid for draining hot liquid from pasta, veggies,etc. The locking capability of the strainer lid makes draining hot liqiuds very easy and safe.There are many books available for those unfamiliar to pressure cooking such asPressure Perfect: Two Hour Taste in Twenty Minutes Using Your Pressure Cookerand many others. The options are unlimited and so you are not stuck with only pot roast or stew. You can even bake cheesecake in the pressure cooker. Pick a book and get started!The Presto website is another great resource with lots of recipes and tips.This cooker saves time, conserves energy (propane in my case), and prevents loss of nutrients in food while giving delicious results.Do not let the stories of pressure cookers exploding from way back when frighten you. The newer cookers have safety features to prevent this.The Presto brand is very common across the country so the parts are widely available.The sealing ring must be replaced on all pressure cookers periodically no matter who the manufacturer is. Many hardware stores (mom and pop as well as large chains) carry thePresto Pressure Cooker Sealing Ring/Overpressure Plug Pack (4 & 6 Quart). An important consideration to make before purchase.
