Pressure cooking: do you or don’t you?


Do you use a pressure cooker?

  • If not, why not?
  • If yes, what do you use it for?

Pressure canners can trigger fear for many people, based on stories of old, with old-style canners exploding in the kitchen.

Today, there are new pressure canners and cookers with safety features built in, but that doesn’t mean that people are using them or that they are right for you. 

Do pressure cookers and canners serve a purpose in the modern home and in the modern homestead?
