Seeing as how I was having a somewhat difficult time deciding between a 6 and 8 quart pressure cooker (PC), I thought a good compromise would be to buy an 8 quart and then purchase several stainless steel mixing bowls in various sizes to use with it. For instance, I was thinking about buying these:
In the 1.5, 3.5, 5.5 varieties. What I wanted to know is whether or not you guys think this is a good idea. On paper, it seems to make sense, because it's cheaper than buying several PC's, but something tells me that there may be a downside to using such an approach that I'm not thinking of.
So should I buy the largest size and do the bowl thing or, if needed, is it worth it to purchase different sized PC's?
