The Great Big Pressure Cooker Book – A Review
I applied to review this book.
My husband and I used a friend’s pressure cooker once. Read about our experience.
The experience with an older pressure cooker scared me. I had no idea what to expect. There was no way to tell the exact pressure it was currently cooking at any point during the process.
When I saw the opportunity to review a book on pressure cookers from Blogging for Books, I applied immediately. I wanted to read about pressure cookers from people who used them. I wanted to know what experts on pressure cookers had to say.
I was thrilled to receive The Great Big Pressure Cooker Book by Bruce Weinstein and Mark Scarbrough.
This book calmed my fears about using Pressure Cookers.
I loved the detailed information and explanations in the front of the book. After reading the Introduction, I felt so much better about using a pressure cooker!
When at the store with my husband the other day, we looked at pressure cookers. I was able to discuss what I had in this book.
Two types of Pressure Cookers
There are two types of Pressure Cookers. The first type is a Manual – like the one we borrowed from a friend. The second type is digital which we saw on store shelves the other night. This book includes directions for both. No need to purchase a new one to use the recipes in The Great Big Pressure Cooker Book.
500 Recipes included in The Great Big Pressure Cooker Book
I knew a Pressure Cooker could be used for canning or cooking food faster. I had no idea of the variety of foods one can cook in a Pressure Cooker!
Recipes include dishes for
- Meat dishes
- Poultry dishes
- Fish and Shellfish
- Vegetables, Beans, and Grains
Desserts in the Pressure Cooker?! Wow! I know I want to try using a Pressure Cooker now. I have my eye on a digital one. Why? I will feel more comfortable seeing the pressure at any given time.
