For our anniversary, we got from daughter and son-in-law an electric pressure cooker. I haven't used a pressure cooker in years and when I did (back in the 60's) it was used on top of the stove. I loved it and used it a lot. I was a little hesitant in case it jiggled too much and exploded. That happened in home ec class in high school. On this electric one, you just set the pressure and time and it does everything on its own. Well, let me tell you, this one is really a wonderful appliance. Yesterday I made honey/garlic chicken in it and it was so fast and so good. I cooked 4 pieces of chicken in 7 minutes. I browned the chicken in it as directed, put the honey,garlic, and soy sauce on it and put the top on and set the timer. This electric cooker is so easy. This would be a good investment for someone who doesn't have much time to cook after coming home from a busy day at work. It also seems it would save on energy because you wouldn't be heating the stove up and cooking for long periods of time especially in the summer when the a/c is being used. It says it will cook a meatloaf in 15 minutes. I am getting ready to look over the book to see what I will cook next. Thank you Carla and her Hubby.
