I have anyways seen people online cooking in a pressure cooker and thought that the food always looked good...well the other day I was at goodwill and seen one there so I bought it and started looking up things to cook in it..so tonight we made BBQ chicken wings in it and it was so good and only took about 40 minutes..the meat fell right off the bone and I love it..there are so many different things that I want to make in it.

We had been also using pressure cookers ever since, what I miss are the ones with gauges on top, can't find those anymore, most that are in the market are those ones with snap on lid cover. Yes they save a lot of time.

I have seen a lot on canning in them and if I had the space for doing that I might give it a try..but for now just food for dinner.

My Mum had one (or two) and I have thought about getting one but I have lots of things to cook in so I think I'll pass.

I used a pressure cooker for canning years ago. I guess I could use one for faster beans. I'm glad you enjoyed the chicken wings.

My mother, use the pressure cooker, practically every day. She finds it very practical and fast. However, washing it is a very boring "process". I often put it in the dishwasher. Meanwhile, it is made of stainless steel, so it does not deteriorate.

It comes apart pretty good so my is easy to clean and we don't have a dishwasher so I just wash it in the sink lol..but yes it cooks food pretty fast and makes it taste pretty good.

@hillhjill Ok. I got it. However, we were 6 years without dishwasher. So I washed it by hand

wow, that is a wonder cooker! I have a pressure cooker used on the stove. But how do you bake the chicken wings? I thought you need water for the cooker....

No don't need any water for BBQ chicken because the BBQ acts like the water when you add it to the chicken when you start cooking.

@peachpurple no it looks like a crockpot that plugs in and has a lot of different options on it.
