Pressure Cooker

Does anyone have or use one of these pressure cookers that they advertise on TV all the time? If you use one of any kind what do you like or dislike about it?

We've got an 8L Fagor that's rated for oil, too. We got it when we were sailing because, the way it locks, if it slid off the stove nothing would spill.

I use it to make broasted chicken with hot oil under pressure (8 to 9 minutes). My wife uses it mostly to make beans, two hours rather than all day. A pot roast takes about an hour.

I have a 6-quart electric pressure cooker. I have used it to cook chili, chicken stew, beef stew, pot roast, New England boiled dinner, pulled pork, and even cooked a pasta/meat sauce dish - all with good results.

If it takes 6 hours in a crock pot, you can usually cut that time by a third or more. I can't think of any real reason for me NOT to have one now that I have started using it. If I had to get rid of my pressure cooker or crockpot because of storage space, I'd unload the crockpot without a second thought.

Don't use mine near enough as I should.

I have an old stove top one and that critter will do meal in a snap of the fingers.

Last time I used it I cooked a huge beef roast with potatoes, carrots and onions. Sear the meat, coat it with gravy mix, cook for 10 minutes, depressurize, add the other stuff, bring it back up to pressure and cook another 10 minutes.

The wife loved it - plus she didn't have to cook or clean up.

If you have to wash the more than the inner bowl and lid, you may need new seals.
