Great idea for a thread. I love my pressure cooker and I’m interested in what others are doing. It is probably one of the best things I have gotten. The small amount of time it takes to make meals is hard to believe. I have the same one as you but if I had to do it again I would think of getting the 10qt one because I think you can use it to pressure can quart jars.
I've used it for all sorts of food. Sunday I used it to make a risotto, which was pretty good and was basically labor free compared to making it the traditional way. Last night I used it to make dahl and basmati rice. There are definitely some things don’t come as well as other ways of cooking, but man does it save time. I’ve been trying to get my wife on board with it so we can get rid of our slow cooker, which is taking up valuable real estate in our kitchen cabinets.
BTW I think you are the one I have to thank (or curse) for the advice about the akorn, which is another of my favorites.
