Does Anyone Else Use A Turbo Cooker?

I love my Turbo Cooker. Have two that I keep on the stove all the time. My meals are cooked faster and more tender. Vegetables come out great too. The cover produces steam that makes everything juicey. Does anyone else use a turbo cooker?

I have one that I use just for steaming vegetables. My grandma bought it off of TV and never used it, so she gave it to me... it sits in the shed outside until I need it.

I don't have a Turbo Cooker but I will certainly look into it. I will try Williams Sonoma - of course my kitchen is small and I am not sure that I will have a place for one.

I live in a condo and I do have a lot of cabinets above my 2 parking places so if I did buy one I could store it there.

I don't think that Williams-Sonoma carries the Turbo Cooker. You could try the TV stores, or the more off-the-wall or outlet type cooking stores. I also saw it at "The Pantry", or was that place called "The Alley", I can't remember... in the Moreno Valley Mall, but that was several years ago.

Is this that thing with the convection cone in the center of the pan?

I have a monster cast iron version used to cook a turkey on a stove. It works pretty well, but it won't crisp the skin. Good for campouts though.

Ahh, not the same thing.

The beast I linked to cooks turkey at 5 minutes a pound so it too is fast.

For what it's worth, there are several up for auction on eBay.

I have never heard of this thing, and I am a worldly person. How did I miss this?

Watching the wrong TV channels.
