PRESSURE COOKER HELP
HEY ALL, I just wanted to share that, I finally gave my mini 2 qt pressure cooker a go. I wanted to share with you this guy’s website because without a visual i was really too hesitant to get going but…I foud this website:
And right on his home page he explains how they work. Now mine is a bit different and he shows two models but he made it clear that they all have the same basic functions. It’s kind of weird the first time because vent knob seems loose and it only locks in as the unit gets to pressure so it’s deceiving at first. I only made hard boiled eggs so I could just give it a try and it took maybe 4 minutes to reach the required temperature and actually start counting down the cooking time.
Doing it the first time is the hard bit. I think, HSN should contact this fellow because he’s good and explains well.
I know I haven’t made anything super yet. I’m going to try rice next and it appears the proportions on the bag of Uncle Bens converted rice are right, so I’ll see how that goes when I get hungry again and feel ready to give this thing a whirl. I need to figure out how long to set it for still.
anyway….I hope someone from HSN see’s this and considers my idea because I needed a visual explanation.
Thank you !!
so if you bought the kitchen HQ 2qt pressure cooker and you want to get started try hard boiled eggs first. Just be sure to use the metal trivet to put the egg on so they don’t touch the bottom of the pan or get the egg accessory and just drop the egg holder in there with 1 cup of water and set it to 6 minutes, on high pressure. This gets you started using it.
Next try Uncle Bens rice, again set it on high pressure, and 10 minutes. 1 cup of rice to 1 and 1/2 cups of water, salt and butter as normal. Press start and walk away ! that’s the best part, it’s forgiving as to when you come back to it but I didn’t wait too long as it goes straight to keep warm when the time is up. It came out great ! I know these are two simple recipes but….they are getting me to realize #1 how easy this is to operate and #2, to remember how it works and to set it. Neither recipe makes a disaster in your kitchen, and you will appreciate the ability to walk away from these two things cooking and not being susceptible to burning up if you forget you are making it, or can’t make it back to the kitchen immediately when the time is up.
the website pressureluckcooking is demonstrating the instapot, however the explanation is so good that he honestly helps tremendously since it’s visual
the message above had it taken out
