This is why I am terrified of pressure cookers

My mother used hers a lot but was also very scared of it. She once almost blew up the kitchen.

I am not sure how they work or if they still sell them. But I don’t hear about them so much anymore, and all the ones I see are very old.

I would not use one if you paid me.

  1. They are useful for some kitchen tasks, and indispensible for canning of low-acid foods, but I’ve never felt a particular need for one.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. 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.

  5. 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!
