It will be a joy to be able to cook a tasty meal in only 20 minutes and not have to get by on leftovers or what I can scrounge. Heck, just yesterday I opened a can of corned beer hash for my only meal of the day. With the new pressure cooker I won't have to resort to doing things like that during the week.
That sounds tasty Liz..

If I didn't get Sunday dinner started early enough, I always turned to my Presto Pressure Cooker. The one with the jiggling valve. I never had a failure. More and more any big meals were done in that. It served me well. I wore out two gaskets. Never had to take it to the sink. Just removed the valve and let out all the steam. Little by little as kids started to leave home, I used it less and less. Today living alone, I don't eat enough to be able to give myself a reasonable excuse to buy one. But I still miss having one.

I had a Power Pressure Cooker XL really liked it but I move to much and stay in small places. Gave it to a co worker and his wife loves it.

Friend of mine has an instantapot. He really likes it and the price was good. Says he uses it at least once a week.

They do tenderize what you put in them, but i think they take the flavor of what you have in, and the flavor is now in the liquid.

I'm having a terrible day with no end in sight. I could use a corned beer right now.

I could take care of you, dear. I have a fridge full of beer (4 different kinds) natural substances, and a real point cut corned beef in the oven. I promise. You would leave here in a good mood.

Thanks for the offer but I'm in the north east.
