First impression of Ming pressure cooker
FIrst, it’s NOT light weight. Almost as heavy as my Puck pressure cooker whose lid broke and they wouldn’t do anything about it.
Second, the recipes were really important to me. Not only can’t I read them (I doubt a person with 20/20 could either) but it’s either lamb (are you kidding me?) or DUCK (give me a break!) or pork which I don’t eat. A couple of chicken and a couple of beef. So the recipes are mostly useless to me.
And did I mention I HATE recipe cards? Just a small book with an index would be fine.
OK, that’s for starters. I will write back with my cooking results if I can figure out how to use it. I haven’t really got the nerve to look at the instruction booklet yet-not until I recuperate from my first observations.
Ming, you’re batting 0-3 with me. And I thought I had something here.
Just made it to the boards today and found your message. Thanks Kyle but I found something locally that I purchased instead. Thank you for addressing my concern.
, can you PM me the item numbers that you were trying to order so I can look into what caused this?
I have an Emeril pressure cooker. One of the first things I made in it was steele cut oats. I make enough for the week. In the morning I just take a serving and pop it in the microwave. It’s so convenient and I don’t need to take those extra 30 minutes to make it on the stove top. Which by the way, always seemed to be a boiled over mess.
There are some good pressure cooking charts/aids online you just need to google them. Same for whatever meals you want to make.
Does this come with a card for cooking times?
Judaline, Don’t think any pressure cookers are really lightweight. I have the Elite 8qt cooker (the earlier version , doesn’t have the slow cooker feature). I also bought the Marian Getz cookbook and that helped alot. I also hate lamb and unless the recipe calls for rosemary or mint jelly, I can usually sub beef or pork.
But I hope you enjoy cooking in the Ming pressure cooker.
I love it and use it more than anything else now. Also in the Marian Getz cookbook is a recipe for Steel Cut Oatmeal (which supposedly you are not supposed to cook in pressure cooker). My husband eats so much oatmeal and this has a better taste and the way I make it is soooo much better for him than box oatmeal. I make it every week so it can be done!!
And have you made hard cooked eggs yet? Yes it works!! And they do peel easier.
