Electric Pressure Cooker Makes Cooking Easy, Without Guilt

Updated on June 16, 2011

Electric Pressure Cooker

If you need less hassle cooking, try pressure cooking. All you have to do is to put all the ingredients into an electric pressure cooker, seal the lid and let it cooks while you carry on with other chores. I have used this almost everyday. I put dinner in, then pick up my son from school and by the time I get home, dinner is ready. It is so convenient.

Electric pressure cooker is a must-have kitchen applicant in every home. It allows me to prepare healthy nutritious meals in just a few minutes!! It cooks 70% faster than the normal stove-top cooking methods. It yields really tasty meals in a fraction of the time. I have made beef rump roast, stewed chicken, and lamb shanks in the past two weeks, deliberately testing it with foods that ordinarily need long cooking time to be tender and flavorful. They were exceptional one dish meals, with meat, veggies and sauces prepared in the same electric pressure cooker. Best of all, I prepared each dish and had them on the table in less than an hour. The milk pudding was also very flavorful with very little preparation and cook time.
