I just ordered a Kuhn Rikon for my husband for his birthday, and I'm hoping that this will speed up the wait for dinner. Since he works and loves to cook, many weeknights we are still waiting for dinner to be done at 9PM. I'm hoping he'll use it for chili, various stews as well as sock making. I'm hoping to eat more artichokes that I can prepare at the last minute. I see many posts about slow cookers, but few about pressure cookers, so I am wondering who uses them and what their favorite things to make in a pressure cooker are.
