I’m sort of terrified of pressure cookers, but this cookbook does a pretty great job demystifying them. Beginning with a general introduction to how to use a pressure cooker (electric or stovetop) including timing charts and advanced techniques, it moves on to a sensibly laid out sequence of chapters covering everything from soups and side dishes to main dishes and desserts.

I am pleased with all that I have learned with this book. It didn't even occur to me that I could use my pressure cooker for so much more than just canning. The recipes are easy and save a ton of time, compared to other methods of cooking. Definitely a great book to have!

This book provides a great introduction to anyone new to pressure cooking. The first chapter provides an overview of pressure cooking, which is great for newbies. The chapters are all organized by type of meal, such as pasta or chicken and the recipes are all simple to follow. The variety of recipes is good and there is a little something to suit everyone’s tastes.

This cookbook is laid out very simply with the exact ingredients and very straightforward preparation. Its simplicity is much like the use of a pressure cooker, since a pressure cooker is all about making delicious food very quickly and easily. I can’t wait to try out these recipes!

Want to make delicious, home-cooked meals while drastically reducing the amount of cooking time and effort required to do so? All these entrée, side dish, and even dessert recipes can be made right in the pressure cooker itself, and they’re easy to prepare, use common grocery store ingredients, and cook 70% faster than traditional cooking methods. Each recipe indicates the amount of liquid to use, the pressure cooking time, and the proper pressure-release method, thereby making these some of the simplest and most flavorful meals you’ve ever prepared. -- papajbear

I own an electric pressure cooker, but was intimidated on using it. After reading the history & science behind it in this book I better understand it. There are food charts that take the guesswork out of things and many good recipes. I've even been able to convert some of my own recipes to use in the pressure cooker. Definitely worth buying!

This has to be one of the best books I ever purchased. Purchasing a pressure cooker can take the pressure off your life. I can feed my family, my office and myself all out of one book. I am a very busy professional on the go, the best part meals are plentiful, quick, easy and healthy. I always look for new ways to eat healthy and this is it. This allows you to cook without the fast fatty frying. I love cooking in a pressure cooker, crock pot and other items as this...they make life so much easier and simpler throughout the humdrum.

I’ve not thought of pressure cookers since I was a kid! But this book laid it out in such a manner that I’m not intimidated to try it – in fact I’m eager to! I love the thought of how quickly it cooks and how it holds all the flavors and nutrients in. I am really eager to try these delicious sounding recipes!

This book was really good. I didn’t think I would like it because I didn’t know how to use a pressure cooker. This book has a lot to offer busy families. It was well written and organized. I recommend this book to anyone that is busy and want a healthy meal for themselves and their family. The general time charts make a difference and will help anyone create recipes on their own. The risotto recipes are great!

I thought this was a great book because it was a different way to cook meals. The books offers alternatives to typical frying and even baking the same meals each week. My family was thrilled with the taste of the meals and I was pleased with how healthy they were for them. The colorful pictures were a great add and the recipes were easy to follow. This is a good book to add to your collection.

Great delicious food, without spending the entire day in the kitchen. The pressure cooker from my parents really came in useful as I bought this book. We started experimenting and we soon found ourselves trying most recipes in the book - from chillis to rice and even desserts. We had fun in the family cooking together. I recommend this book for people with pressure cookers at home or for those who are looking for an idea what to cook next.

I recieved my pressure cooker as a Christmas present from my Grandma.  I have never really used for anything but veggies.  This book his great tips, including a helpful time chart for almost you could want to cook.  There are lot's of new veggie recipes try. I made the Brussel Sprouts with Bacon. It was easy, and the whole family lived it! I have never made anything but veggies, and I am excited to try some of the other recipes.  Next I am going to try the 2-minute corn on the cob, and the BBQ Chicken. I got this book for free.

The way the cookbook is set up teaches you the easy way to make a full meal for a family in the matter of just minutes.  There is a guide to teach you how to use the Pressure Cooker and why it is important to know all working parts of the machine before using.  How many cookbooks take the time out to explain first the teach you yummy recipes to make for your family.  There is so many recipes to chose from that it took me forever trying to find the one I wanted I have now tried many different meat ones and will be working on the desserts next.

Divided into eleven parts, this book provides a better understanding of pressure cooking overall and contains easy, affordable recipes (which are complete with photos and nutritional information.) The recipes book includes a how-to guide, timing charts, figures, resources, and a list of ten essential cooker tips! I recommend this book mostly to college students, for the easy, fast (yet hearty) recipes suit them in their time constraints.

Flavorful foods and gourmet cooking tips make this pressure cooker cookbook a winner. The recipes, from Seafood Lover’s Stew to Spanish Pork, are generous with spices. Pointers, such as for Lamb and Pea Stew (for best results use balsamic vinegar), are sprinkled throughout the recipes to bring out the best of each dish. Add to that the quick results of pressure cooking and any busy family can have delicious, healthy meals on any day of the week. I like that pressure cooking results in tender meat, without the long cooking time of a crock pot or the heating up of the kitchen with an oven. This cookbook, which I received for free, is just right for this busy, single mom of two.

The pressure cooker cookbook provides an easy guide for beginners, including a how-to guide on how to use a pressure cooker. This cookbook not only includes recipes, but it also features cooking time charts, techniques and tips. This book also breaks down how to cook rice, grains and beans, making it a helpful tool for those just starting out.

A cookbook with over 100 meals for any family entertaining meal with boiling, braising, poaching, steaming, roasting and stewing techniques.  With a near slow cooker style, quick to natural release pressure cooker recipes at 15 psi with up to 250 degrees create convenient two minute corn on the cob to spaghetti squash with butter and parmesan to offer to a daily palette.

This book has a lot of great recipes in it. (I’d love to see pics, hint hint). I love how the instructions are easy to follow. I made the Colorado Beef Chili since it’s cold out. This was our first thick stew of the year. This took me about 20 minutes, although the book stated it should be 15, no biggie. I’m eyeing the Lemon Chicken next. I did get this ebook for free in exchange for an honest review.

The joy of the pressure cooker Forget those old notions about pressure cooker mishaps that sent a geyser of dinner towards the ceiling. Pressure cookers have come along way since then, and it is time to revisit this cooking method. The Pressure Cooker Cookbook is an excellent way to start. Many family favorites are in here along with some modern twists (Beer Can Chicken anyone?). With an amazing amount of cooking time saved using a  pressure cooker, meals can be prepared and enjoyed in no time. Who isn’t looking for more time in their day?

This book has taught me so many different techniques that I have never had the pleasure to use. It has been a blast using this book for not only the techniques taught in it, but the recipes as well – just as my family! This is a must have cookbook for any seasoned or beginning pressure cooker.

The Pressure Cooker Cookbook has made my family ecstatic when I cook meals. It starts with an introduction on the benefits of pressure cooking foods. It then moves on to basic to advanced techniques for cooking delicious food to perfection. Recipes in the book include recipes for soups, stews, chilies, sea-food, poultry, beef, lamb, and deserts. Whether you are a beginner, an intermediate or advanced level chef, you will consult this book countless times for pressure cooking recipes and tips. MY family loves it!

Great recipe book for pressure cookers. The tips it provides are spot on and the recipes are very tasty too. Growing up we had a couple of pressure cookers just sitting in the house collecting dust. I wish we had this book then. Definitely would have dusted them off and make such great lunches and dinners! Definitely a great buy!

With a pressure cooker, you can retain the valuable vitamins and nutrients in your food AND save money by purchasing less expensive meats that will taste just as tender and juicy as the more expensive cuts. As a newbie to the pressure cooking world, I found the detailed instructions in this book easy to understand and follow along. The tips and techniques (both basic and advanced), timing charts, and wide range of delicious recipes are just the answer to all your pressure cooking needs!
