Electric Pressure Cooker

Electric pressure cookers are a wonderful way to prepare meals in a flash – even when the recipe calls for meat or dry beans.

  • Electric Pressure Cooker

Today’s electric pressure cookers are a wonderful addition to the homesteader’s kitchen. They take meat from the refrigerator to tender, juicy and table-ready in as little as 25 minutes — without even heating up the kitchen. In addition, rice, beans, potatoes and pasta are perfectly done every time without requiring the cook to stand at the stove and stir.

Simply place the ingredients in the pressure cooker, set the timer, and come back soon to a finished product.

After researching the large selection of electric pressure cookers available, I decided on one with a stainless steel inner pot and a yogurt setting. I now enjoy homemade Greek-style yogurt from raw Jersey milk that I purchase through a local dairy — it’s creamy and delicious! The pressure cooker saves me time and energy, and I regularly put it to good use.
