A bunch of us bought our electric pressure cookers before Christmas and I was just wondering if you’re all using them and loving them? Mine is the Cuisinart model but some of you got the Instant Pot (and probably other models) and I’m wondering what you all think.
I never like having things sitting on the counter but my pressure cooker hardly ever gets moved off the counter. Same with my yogurt maker but this post is about the pressure cooker.
Almost every morning, I “boil” 4 or 5 bantam eggs in the pressure cooker. These are eggs that are either fresh from that same morning or were laid the day before and they always peel perfectly!
We either have chicken salad, tuna salad, green salad or spinach salad almost every day and all of those get boiled eggs.
The cooker gets used at least one more time just about every day. Quinoa for breakfast cooks in 1 minute and sits for 10 minutes. It’s ready to eat before I’m ready for us to sit down and eat. There’s fruit to wash, bacon to fry . . and the quinoa is ready before I get any of that done. Easy and quick and health . . would be more healthy if I left off the bacon but that’s not happening.
This morning I cooked eggs for tuna salad, then I cooked pinto beans for tonight and now I have a chuck roast in there for Beef Enchiladas tonight.
I know I probably shouldn’t but I’m really tempted to get the Instant Pot . . just because there are a lot of days I could have two going at once. And, as Vince says . . it’s using electricity instead of propane and we’re producing electricity. I think I’ll use his own argument and get myself an Instant Pot.
Seriously, how are you liking your pressure cookers?
