Cooking With A Pressure Cooker

Hidy ho all,

 

I'm considering trying a pressure cooker and I'm wondering if anyone currently uses one.  I plan to start small (and cheap) and I'm thinking this might be a good start.

 

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00006ISG3/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00006ISG3&linkCode=as2&tag=none06b4-20"
 

 

Does anyone have experience (or recipes, or horror stories) they'd like to share?

 

Advice?

 

Anything?

Also wondering how to make just a text only link instead of the stupid URL.  Used to be easy.

I will watch this thread with interest. I bought a smallish electric pressure cooker about a month ago and haven't used it yet. Never used one before and it intimidates me.

Me too, but a lot of boat people love them because they cook with less fuel.  :ph34r: Scared :ph34r:

I use a pressure cooker and have for many, many years.  One of the best places to read about them and gain confidence, as well as get ideas for many ways to use them is Miss Vickie's site.

 

As for making text links, first type your text in the reply window...then, highlight it by putting the cursor in front of the text and dragging the mouse across the text you want linked.  THEN go to the little link tool at the top of the message screen.  If your message screen does not show the tools, there should be a button to push that says "more reply options".  Click that and it should reveal the tools you need.

 

I don't recommend aluminum, I prefer the stainless steel because the aluminum pits if you do a lot of cooking with acidic foods such as tomato.  It also leaches aluminum into your food, which supposedly damages our brains (connected with Alzheimer's).

 

I have an older rocker-weight pressure cooker, I also just got one of the fancier ones that doesn't have rocker weight.  I don't have a lot of experience with the newer one, the metal on the pan split before I got much use out of it.  For this reason I would hesitate recommending the Spanish-made Fagor, though they did honor their warranty and replace the pot.  My confidence is low, however, as my husband looked at the metal and said it has what look like flaws in forging and the new one will probably split too. 

 

Pressure cooking does not have to be frightening!  One needs to remember a couple of rules:  1)  make sure you have adequate liquid in the cooker, and, 2) don't leave home with your pressure cooker on the stove.  Set your timer so you can get back to your pan before all the liquid evaporates.  It is when a pressure cooker run dry that it is dangerous, and rocker-weights lose a lot more moisture through their vents!  Pressure cooker recipes take this into account, so don't be nervous when following recipes written for pressure cookers.

 

You will need to spend a little more time learning how to get a rocker-weight cooker set at right pressure if you have an electric stove, once you get it down it will be faster!  Gas stove is easy, when you turn the flame down the pressure drops pretty quick too!

 

Anyway, I love my pressure cookers and hope you will love yours!

    • I can definately identify with this. I half-laughingly refer to myself as an 'elder orphan'.   I can't afford anything like a secret santa but would love the opportunity to exchange holiday cards with others here.  It is comforting in a way to realize that I am not the only person who is isolated but kind of sad to know that there are others in the same boat. When I talk to folks with large close extened families who endlessly complain about them I just want to slap them sometimes.
    • Yes IELs can be linked to other things. However, increase in IELs, loose stools, and a good response to a gluten free diet would point to celiac.  Celiac panels vary lab to lab and not all labs run all of the tests so you might want to post here after you get your results. My brother was negative to the labs run but they failed to run the DGP test in him (which I have tested positive on before). He is a biopsy confirmed celiac.  Thyroid issues can give you the runs, and lipase can indicate how well your pancreatic and gallbladder system is working, both can also cause tummy issues. Both issues are also common in celiacs as mentioned by others. Sounds like you have a great doc.  Last, my initial last biopsy was read by a hospital pathologist to be increase in IEL. The slides were read by a celiac specialist at that same hospital after they were re-cut (don't ask, I have no idea) and read Marsh 2-3A damage with areas of normal villi.   
    • Hi Benjamin and welcome You've found a good site. Everyone above has given you good advice I just wanted to reinforce this point from Ravenwoodglass: Some people (like me), test negative for celiac but still have a problem with gluten. This is called Non Celiac Gluten Sensitivity and is not a well known or understood condition. Suffice to say if you do test negative, you shouldn't assume that gluten is fine for you, it may well not be. Best of luck! Matt
    • You're welcome I don't think any doctor should be too reluctant to request a blood test if you set things out for them in the right way. You have symptoms consistent with celiac/gluten sensitivity, you have anecdotal evidence (your positive reaction to going gluten free). So you have a good case.  If and when you get some tests scheduled you will have to go back on gluten. This can be rough. It helped me to come on here and document how I was feeling. Support from here helped me get through the challenge period. So do come back on if your doing the challenge.
    • I agree that you should keep eating gluten and get tested if you can.  The reason for the increase in symptoms after being gluten free is the antibodies flaring in response to you injesting what your body doesn't want you to consuming.  Your body is letting you know in no uncertain terms that gluten is not something it wants.  You don't have to consume a lot of gluten for testing. A couple slices of bread worth is enough.  There is a chance with most of your issues sounding like they are neuro related for a false negative. After testing you should IMHO go back to being strictly gluten free no matter what the results. Keep in mind that many doctors consider celiac to be a solely GI problem and won't test if you don't have gastro issues.  Sounds like your body is giving you the answer but a formal diagnosis can be helpful with family members and freinds taking the condition as seriously as you need to take it.
