    Pressure Cooker

    I got one as a gift and have no idea what to do with it. What those of you who use one find it the better alternative to say, copper pans?

    I just started using mine for cooking beans, instead of soaking and cooking for an hour they go into the cooker and 25 minutes later are ready for whatever I'm making.

    We cook everything in the pressure cooker. Beans, roasts, stews etc. Invaluable when living at altitude.

    Fried chicken done in a pressure cooker comes out great. I've never tried it with mine, but I used to eat chicken done that way at a little restaurant back home and it was the best I've ever had. Another nice thing about doing it that way is it cooks fast.

    I want one. Would love one at work for stocks. Growing up my mom cooked chicken and tongue in hers. Of course they are also great for canning. Me, I have always had a master plan for turning one into a still.

    I use mine primarily for making stock, a task at which it excels. Occasionally, if I'm in a big hurry, I'll do pork shoulders, short ribs, and the like. It's great at turning long braises into a comparatively quick task.
