Cooking with the Electric Power Pressure Cooker Is So Easy

This Cheesy Meatball recipe is one of my favorites.

Before the Electric Power Pressure Cooker, I would prepare the tomato sauce in your standard quart pot, and as you know when tomato sauce starts to boil it splashes all over the stove. Not with this cooker, you simply seal the lid press the timer and go do something else. No more standing over the stove. The cooker switches to warm when the timer is done.

I love cooking cooking with the Electric Power Pressure Cooker XL. I can prepare meals in less than an hour. Easy to use and easy to clean.

Safety Tips when cooking with a Pressure Cooker

  • Always make sure the lid is locked
  • Switch the release valve to to closed
  • When the cooker is done, use a potholder or tongs to switch the release valve to open
  • Keep hands and face away from the steam as it releases
  • Unplug the cooker when done
  • I know my dog likes to hover around when I am cooking --- Don't feed your pet any scraps that contain Onions (smile)
