This is so interesting! I WOH and feel like I never, ever have time to make a decent meal (or we end up eating the same old thing). I was always afraid of them because I'd heard they could explode, but it sounds like the newer ones might be safer? I need to look into this.

I need to get mine back out!

I have done beans, pot roast (BEST I ever made--mouthwatering and fall-apart tender), soup..... what else?

but I tend to forget about it b/c I'm "used to" regular pots.

It really does cut down on cooking time. and the flavor of almost anything is better when it's done in a PC!

The newer ones typically have 3 separate safety release mechanisms.

PCs are expensive, but don't be intimidated by the price. They are a fantastic investment! I've made some of my best meals in my PC. It's not like a crock pot that turns everything into mush.

CakeLady--

My friend has an electric from QVC as well. She says she likes it because her smaller Kuhn's handles get too hot on her gas cooktop (and one actually melted!). How big are your electric and Kuhns? I'm trying to make a decision on a new smaller Kuhn (I have the 7L -- it's enormous), and after my friend told me about her 3.5 L Kuhn braiser where the handle melted (she now covers it with foil -- what a pain), I'm thinking twice about it! She's got an inexpensive Kenmore gas stove so maybe she doesn't have as much control over her flame as I do (not that I have a Viking, but I have good control on my burners, I think).

I will check in the morning what size I have, but my small Kuhn is only the size of a skillet and about 3 inches deep. On a gas burner you are supposed to use a flame tamer. I have used mine on a coil and glass top and the handles never get hot. One of my friends has the same small Kuhn, gas burners, uses the flame tamer thingy and has never had a problem. If I don't post the size of my cookers tomorrow...remind me.

I did stew the other night. Here's the recipe I sorta followed:

1 1/2 pounds beef stew meat
1TB shortening(I use oil)
1 tsp salt
dash pepper(I use more)
1/4 tsp paprika
1 1/2 cups water
1/2 cup onions( I think I ended up using two onions)
4 carrots, whole(I used a bag of baby carrots)
4 potatoes, medium, cut in halves

Brown the meat on all sides in the oil . Add salt, pepper, paprika and water and put lid on. Bring to pressure and cook 8 mins (on 15lbs pressure). Remove from heat and let cool naturally 5 mins and then decompress under faucet.

Add remaining ingredients. My pressure cooker allows you to fill half full, so I kept adding veggies until it was that full. Cover, bring to pressure and cook 6-8 mins (on 15 lbs pressure). Decompress instantly under faucet.

Prepare gravy recipe:
Stir 2 TB flour into 1/4 cup cold water until smooth. Add to stew liquid and simmer until it thickens. Put back in with stew and stir--dinner's ready!
