Our First Pressure Cooker

Last week I bought a Pressure Cooker at Walmart to celebrate our 36th wedding anniversary. It's a Farberware 6 quart "7-1 programmable pressure cooker".  I like it because it can also be used as a crock pot slow cooker.

The first thing we cooked was a pork roast.  It fell apart but tasted great.
Next we want to try the slow crock pot setting, maybe on chicken cutlets.

It's a new toy for old folks.  I even want to try and cook, which is something I usually leave for Lynette who loves to cook.

Any favorite recipes you'd like to share? 
Strange or funny experiences you've had and want to comment about?


  1. Let's see, I don't have one but my Dad cooks pinto beans in his pressure cooker, I think.
