Do you need the pressure? Would you lose anything if you steamed in a
steamer, like an oriental bamboo steamer? We have a huge steamer for
Dungeness Crab we picked up at Ranch 99 for less than $30.

One thing I learned about pressure cooking, there is a good deal less
shrinkage of meat. It's also faster and uses less energy.

I learned to use a pressure cooker when I was about 11 years old. Still
use one all the time.

Spelling doesn't count. Cooking does.

Is it a Presto Pressure Cooker? It was developed near the beginning of WWII
and was sort of a standard during those difficult times. I haven't seen one
in years. The Presto plant was very near where I grew up. I think it's
dormant now.
