Overview

100 foolproof pressure-cooker recipes that will change the way you cook.

In Pressure Cooker Perfection, the first volume in our new test kitchen handbook series, the editors at America's Test Kitchen demystify an appliance that to many home cooks remains intimidating -- but shouldn't. Modern pressure cookers are safer, quieter, more reliable, and more user-friendly than old-fashioned jiggle-top models. And they can prepare a wide range of foods -- everything from barbecue to risotto -- in record time.

Cooking under pressure results in better-tasting dishes because every drop of flavor is trapped in the sealed pot. This fact, combined with the shorter cooking time, means that your dishes will be supercharged with flavor. And cooking under pressure is versatile. While they're ideal for roasts and stews, pressure cookers can also turn out perfectly tender beans, grains, and legumes in short order.

If ever there was a cooking method that could benefit from the obsessive trial and error that our test kitchen is known for, this is it. When cooking time is compressed, every minute matters, and when flavors are amplified, even a small change becomes significant. We ran hundreds of tests in fifteen pressure cookers to find out what works and what doesn't, and we deliver the foolproof, guaranteed-successful recipes in Pressure Cooker Perfection. With this foolproof guide to cooking under pressure, every home cook will be guaranteed success.

I am loving this book. I thought the recipes were great, but I'm quite surprised that using the PC basket wasn't mentioned. I have cooked the tastiest boneless skinless chicken breast by steaming it in the basket with coconut milk below. It falls off the fork and well you can use your own imagination when it comes to what to do with it. Plus, cook the small potatoes on the basket and you'll have less water logged potatoes. Also, do you know the difference between baking soda and baking powder? Or how long raw eggs will last in your refrigerator? What is “resting time?” What is the proper temperature to cook chicken? Then, I recommend that you buy a copy of “Conquer Your Kitchen” from Chef Jai Scovers. In “Conquer Your Kitchen,” Chef Jai Scovers will show you how to eat healthier and still provide wholesome meals that your entire family will love. Best of all, it is on sale right now here on BN.

I love America's Test Kitchen cookbooks. I've purchased many of them because they are written so well. This book does not disappoint. This book on pressure cookers is very thorough and helpful; especially since this type of appliance is new to me. I would definitely recommend this cookbook.
