This year I promised myself I would buy a pressure cooker. I have no qualms about canning, and was disappointed to find that there are a lot more things that require pressure to be canned not just a water bath.
The benefit has been how awesomely fast it cooks other food. Chicken, roast, veggies all quick easy, tasty and nutritious.
And the new safety features can’t be beat! No exploding food in my kitchen.
