    I love my pressure cooker. A chicken cooked in one along with lots of carrots, onions, peppers and a stock cube,etc. is tender, moist and delicious. I blend the veg and the stock and make soups.
    I would not be without it. It certainly isn't used everyday but for cooking tasty tender meat it is a boon.

    Whoops forgot to say, leave the stock in the fridge overnight and all the fat rises to the surface and solidifies. Remove the fat and you have a tasty, fatfree base for whatever soup takes your fancy.

    I haven't had a pressure cooker for years now, we were caravanners when the children were young, and it was wonderful for cooking in the small space of a caravan kitchen.

    I have been thinking seriously of getting one again, but what with having a steamer, halogen oven, slow cooker and microwave, I'm not sure whether I would get the use out of one.

    But, I am still thinking about it...........

    It's a shame that I have a really small one (bought it really cheap from Asda) and still have not used it.
