A soup, chili, or stew is one of those satisfying comfort foods we look forward to on a chilly day. My grandchildren enjoy this dish as well, so I occasionally prepare it for them as well. Preparing beef stew on top of the stove, the traditional way could be time-consuming, but it only takes 15 minutes in a pressure cooker.
If you are anything like me; you love shopping. However, to shop for other people on your list, is just a totally different ball game, then I will give you some ideas for the cooks/bakers on your list.
Those of us who enjoy cooking, are always on a lookout for new gadgets, cookware and kitchen appliances, and other useful tools which would make the job easier, faster and still result with a scrumptious meal to put on the table.
I am on that list as well, and even though I already enjoy using my pressure cooker and a slow-cooker/crockpot, I came across yet another very useful kitchen appliance, the rice cooker.
The single most convenient, time and energy saving piece of cookware in my kitchen is my pressure cooker. Most of my meals are ready in 15 minutes, which is at least a third of the time it would take to prepare them the usual way. Presto Pressure Cooker was my first pot I ever bought, and used it for over 20 years. During this time I only had to replace the gasket, and the pressure regulator (which I misplaced). Last year I finally let it retire, and replaced it with Splendid 2 in 1 Pressure Cooker by Fagor.
