This is a very comprehensive and informative book. We have only tried a few of the recipes so far - but all so far have been supurb!

The pressure cooker works fine and is easy to clean.I had one many years ago but the newer ones have an easier pressure system than the older ones did.

This cookbook is very helpful in understanding how to use a pressure cooker. Although many of the recipes are not my cup of tea I was still able to use the information about cooking time for my own recipes.

It's a great cookbook, but what I was after was a replacement for my old, basic cookbook, which had sections for how much water and how many minutes for the basic things. I'd lost that, and so needed a replacement. I admit that at the price I was paying, I was getting more than the basics, but I assumed that the basics would be included even in a fancier cookbook. Lastly, my first pressure was purchased in 1947. It was a co-op pressure cooker. It my current age, I'm not after more recipes. I go for the simple ones.

I inadvertantly ordered it in Aluminum. If I had it to do over again, I would have ordered it in Stainless Steel. However, it works just fine - according to my husband, who is the one who uses it.

The recipes were "out-dated" and definitely not for the average family with children. The recipes included such items as "rabbit with stewed prunes"--not very popular with young kids and teens!!

By T A. from Randleman, NC

I purchased the book for my father. Based on the description of the book and the fact that this was from a manufacturer of the pressure cooker I assumed that it was a cookbook that would provide the "basics". Most of the recipes involved many ingrediants and were too involved for day to day cooking.
