How Do You Use Your Pressure Cooker?

CindyJ | Mar 2, 2008 01:35 PM

I've never owned a pressure cooker, or even known anyone who uses one. But over the past few days I've seen a couple of recipes for corned beef that suggest cooking it using a pressure cooker. A bit of online research indicates there are many uses for a pressure cooker, but it's hard to know from what I've read whether there's a noticeable advantage to using one.

To buy, or not to buy -- that is the question. If the primary advantage of a PC is as a time-saver, I'll probably opt out. But if a pressure cooker yields a better result than traditional cooking methods, I'll consider getting one.

So -- how do you use your pressure cooker? For what dishes is it indispensable? And, if I do go for it, what brand should I buy, and what size makes the most sense?
