Stainless Pressure Saucepan





I really love my little stainless steel pressure saucepan.  I know some people think cooking at a higher temperature isn't good.  I have no idea. I have a pressure canner as well, and there is no other way to can low-acid foods, so I'm already there.  I had wished for a stainless pressure saucepan for quite a while, and I thought they were expensive (as I only looked in local stores.)  And then today I saw this listing.  It's not free, but the price is excellent.  They have larger ones, also.  I got mine not long ago at a thrift store for $7.50.  It came with an aluminum rack inside, so I went online and ordered a stainless rack.

I always worried about using the old aluminum one I had, so kind of avoided it mostly.  Now, however, I use this stainless version a LOT.  Tough meats?  No problem!  In a hurry to cook your soaked beans?  Voila!  It saves time, energy, and with some foods improves the results. When/if this one fails, I'll buy another, but I doubt that it will.

  1. I've got a 10qt Fagor pressure cooker I bought maybe 3-4 years ago. I use it probably once or twice a week. Soup, meat, beans ... you can even bake bread in one (It has no crust!). It's probably my favorite kitchen device.

    2. This is where I encountered the idea. Indeed it is what got me interested in pressure cookers. I saw the bread baking thing and I had to try it.

  2. Have you played around with different liquids besides water? My PC needs a minimum of a half cup of liquid to do its thing. One time I did some chicken and used a whole bottle of liquid smoke for the liquid. Pressure smoked chicken. Very tasty.

    1. Wow! No, I've always used water. I will have to try the liquid smoke. I love that stuff. Thanks!
