    About 20 years ago I happened to see a cooking show where they used a pressure cooker to make risotto. It takes only 10 minutes and you don't have to stir or anything (obviously, since it's sealed in), and the consistency comes out perfect.

    My wife has used one for many years. It broke a few years ago and she really misses it. I prefer low and slow in the crockpot. She would cook roasts in like an hour in the pressure cooker, not even completely thawed out.

    I heard they are more common at high altitude, where water in an open pot boils away before the food is cooked.

    got one from Target ages ago and will use it today. Making bean stoupe is easy and takes only 20-minutes instead or 2-hrs. Curry dishes are quick as well.

    Best use is for making dog food! I get bone scraps from local butcher and after 45-minutes, they're about as tough as a potato chip! Slightly crispy, but falls apart after the initial crunch. BTW, I don't see any dogs or wolves in the wild donning overalls and farming corn or wheat. So none of that crap goes into my dogs or cats.

    An Indian friend of my wife got us one for a wedding gift. She saw the one we had on our registry and decided it was stupid and she could do one better. It's an Indian product based on an old English design. Instead of the big lock ring arrangement it has an elliptical lid that you slide in and turn so the pressure makes the seal, just like a soda keg. It came with a book full of lentil and dumpling recipes. I love the thing, it's faaaaast. It has a weight-operated blowoff valve instead of the rocker found on American style ones and the noise is kind of scary.

    I prefer the weighted pressure-valve too. You can use different weights to select different pressures depending upon the type of food being cooked.

    Just made a batch of fresh humus today. From bag of dried chickpeas to finished product in 37-minutes (most of that was waiting for water to boil). Food-processor for grinding beans into paste really helps too!

    I've never used one, but I remember Grandma cooking oxtail stew in hers a long time ago!
