  1. LOL!!! My grandmother used one all the time and made fabulous things with it. They still do make them but, I have to say that the quality isn’t what it used to be. I don’t think I would buy one for fear of it malfunctioning.

  2. I think the slow cooking has largely taken over from them. I too hated them, my mother’s let off steam from a valve in the lid, just like a steam train.

  3. Really? I use mine every other day and l’ve never heard of anyone having a problem with theirs.
    They are very popular here and everybody has one. I thinl the modern ones are absolutely safe and if they are used properly you don’t risk any accident.

  4. We used to use them to sterilise mall things, such as pipette tips and tubes, when I started working in a laboratory. Then they were banned some time ago.Young ones today – no sense of adventure!
