Feel the pressure...
This blogpost is NOT an advert - it is my own opinion of my own item.
I have got some very lovely people I know.
(That sentence is grammatically incorrect for a reason..)
What I mean is that we have a small circle of friends (not a bubble...that's something else entirely...) and then there are some thoughtful folks we know who we are kind to , who are really kind back.
What on earth am I babbling about today? And what does the title on today's blog refer to?
I never ever never wanted or would have purchased a pressure cooker.
This thing is a-mazing!
Firstly it makes no sound.
Secondly it cooks things really quickly.
Thirdly it uses less power than other methods of cooking.
and lastly it has features that are brilliant - like setting a timer so your dinner will be ready to eat by a time - up to 24 hours ahead.
When it arrived I cleaned it, then assembled it to have a 'go'!
First I cooked white rice in five minutes. Yes, from dry grain to cooked. Mm-hmm.
Then I tried out the veg tray and cooked big chunks of carrot and large florets of broccoli in three minutes (to be honest, two would have done as I like veg more al dente) and that's quicker than a microwave!!
Everything was moist (hee-hee 'moist') as it had been cooked in steam.
When you turn the valve on the top to release the steam (- with an oven glove, and before you open the lid) there is a little steam, but nothing the extractor fan couldn't clear in seconds.
So I am now working my way through recipes to try out my new kitchen friend.
Excited by kitchen equipment? Me?
