Yah, original pressure cookers could explode because they had no safety relieve values or other safety features. Today's cookers are a far cry from those ancient ones and impossible to explode. Time you checked them out and started enjoying pressure cooking.

Thanks for the information, it's very reassuring. Being of the geezer persuasion, I believe I'll just continue to cook the way I have for six decades. But thanks.

I'm a geezer type and I traded in my big pressure cooker for a small 4-quart one which is just the right size for one person and probably less intimidating.

Geezer here too. Usually, geezer is preceded by cantankerous or crotchety and old.

As a young married, we had a pressure cooker and used it comfortably for several years.

In my current incarnation, I don't own one and don't miss it. My Indian neighbors have several and can't understand how I manage to cook the recipes they give me without one.

Next to my cast iron cookware, a pressure cooker is one of my favorite cooking utensils.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions and you will do fine.
