This week we celebrate the modern pressure cooker and our new book, Pressure Cooker Perfection. Check back daily for tips, tricks, videos, and recipes that will help you get the most out of this essential kitchen time-saver.
Welcome to #ILoveMyPressureCooker week! In the spirit of all things pressure cookers, every day we’ll be featuring a new blogger, and their experience pressure cooking. We sent 6 of our Best Buy pressure cookers to bloggers all across America, allowing them to try out recipes from Pressure Cooker Perfection. They fearlessly tackled soups, stews, sides and roasts—without any previous pressure cooking knowledge. And the outcome? Well, if they weren’t already convinced pressure cookers are the new, modern kitchen appliance, they are now.
TODAY’S FEATURED BLOGGER: BAKED BREE
“I have to be honest, I was a little intimated by using a pressure cooker. I watch a lot of Top Chef, and a lot of the contestants reach for the pressure cooker when pressed for time. You can make something that usually takes all day to make and build flavor in less than an hour. I really thought that pressure cookers were for professionals. I was certain that I would blow the lid off of my pressure cooker. But you know what? It was fool-proof. The lid locks, and is completely safe. These are not the pressure cookers that our grandmothers used.”
“And I know that what you are thinking. Really Bree? Mashed sweet potatoes? Why bother? Bother because the sweet potatoes were the perfect mashing consistency, stayed a gorgeous bright orange (they didn’t turn brown like they can do when you boil them) and really concentrated their sweet flavor. I really think that I might fall in love with pressure cooking. I know that you can cook beans in one, but I had no idea how many other things that you can make in one. Polenta. Stews. Soups. Pasta. I might have a new favorite kitchen appliance.”
