    Pressure cookers

    No not cooking under the gun. Haha Seriously, I'm thinking about adding a pressure cooker to the kitchen tool box. Any suggestions? Thanks.

    Even though I BBQ all year long sometimes when it's in the single digits I break out the pressure cooker and no one ever complains.

          This WMF stovetop is pretty amazing (you don't have to get the combo): https://www.amazon.com/dp/B005EQK3IE/?tag=amazi0a8-20 Truly a thing of beauty.

          Bought it for a niece, but had to inspect it.

          We have an electric, I think a Cuisinart, which is our go-to rice machine.

          We also have an old Magafesa pressure fryer, which is our main stovetop one.

          Bought another stovetop for another niece getting married. Not as impressive as the first one, but no slouch either: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00009A9XT/?tag=amazi0a8-20

          This is a "best book" on the subject: https://www.amazon.com/dp/0060505346/?tag=amazi0a8-20

          Fagor Duo is a good brand too, and from what I've heard that Instant Pot is getting top reviews for electrics.

          Have fun!

          Good buying guide in here: http://thebestpressurecookers.com

          Better one here from JCBBQ below: https://www.hippressurecooking.com/ . This is one of the very best PC sites around.

          Get an 8 qt size.

            America's Test Kitchen most highly recommends the stovetop Fissler Vitaquick 8½-Quart Pressure Cooker. We got one from Amazon a couple of years ago and it's been fantastic ... pricey but fantastic.

              Yeah, that's a really good site on the subject!

              Now that I looked at it again, this is the one that guided my purchases for relatives, and would guide my own if the one I have were ever to wear out before I do - which is unlikely.

              The author of that site has also written a good cookbook with the same title. Not like I needed another cookbook, but I got it anyway. Good purchase.

            I'm really getting into this tonight. Hopefully it doesn't kick off some MCS. Anyway, here's another good article on choosing pressure cookers. As an aside, I'll say that I've had three Breville small appliances, and they are top-notch. http://www.seriouseats.com/2016/08/e...rs-review.html

              I have the Breville one recommended by Kenji and love it. But I might save the money and get the Instapot if I were doing it over again. Though I love the non-stick.

              I would go with an electric over a stove top unit. it takes the guess work out of what setting to have the burner at. I have one and love it for doing soups and stews.

                My BF got me a Fagor many years ago. This one is a pressure cooker/canner. To be able to can, you need one that is designated able to do so. This came with 2 lids, a regular lid and a pressure lid. So if I'm doing a small canning batch, I can do it in there rather than lug out my big canning pot. Since it's nice and deep, we were using it to SV until we got a dedicated container (the pasta pot was too shallow).

                My go to recipe is risotto - no stirring and less than 30 min from prep to serve. I haven[t tried any of the ribs or brisket recipes yet. Did a bean soup that probably would have gone better in a crock pot over a couple days rather than trying to rush it. I may someday get one of the heavier ones I see at the homeshows - you can do fried chicken in them. I would NEVER try it in the one I have now, the last thing I need is a critical failure that would get me into the Farmer's Hall of Claims.

                  Definitely do not use a regular pressure cooker for pressure frying. Use one designed for it (there aren't many).

                I just bought an Instant Pot this week. Cooked a 4lb pork loin in 50 minutes. We were shocked by how tender and juicy it was. I was reading how people can have potatoes ready to mash in 5-6 minutes. The thought of that makes me giddy.

                  Yeah, Obi-Dan , sometimes it takes longer for the Instant Pot to come to pressure than it does to cook the food. It's a great little gizmo for sure.

                  Have you tried the Insta-Chicken recipe for it? Just throw in frozen chicken parts and have pulled chicken in less than half an hour. Here's the link:

                  That recipe has saved my bacon many a night when I thought I had nothing good to cook for supper.

                    You're welcome, Lowjiber . I think you'll like the Instant Pot. I make Chile Colorado in it, using pulled beef from smoked chucks. I freeze the beef in 1lb vacuum sealed packs, and then, when I need a quick and yummy supper, I use one of the packs in this recipe:

                    Nice! I purchased two stove top units a few months ago, with the idea of having quicker meals. Thanks for the link, this should improve my learning curve with these little devils...Ive had a few "challenges" with them so far.

                    KevinG Seriously consider picking up Lorna Sass' "Pressure Perfect". Best book on the subject that I know. Works for electric or stovetop cookers: https://www.amazon.com/Pressure-Perf...essure+perfect

                The Good-One Is A Superb Grill And A Superb Smoker All In One

                the good one grill

                The Good-One Open Range is a charcoal grill with an offset smoke chamber attached. It is dramatically different from a traditional offset smoker. The grill sits low in front and doubles as a firebox for the smoke chamber which is spliced on above and behind so it can work like a horizontal offset smoker only better. By placing the heat source behind and under the smokebox instead of off to the side, Open Range produces even temperature from left to right, something almost impossible to achieve with a standard barrel shaped offset.
