    Default Instant Pots

    Anyone have one? Like it/don't like it? Experiences? Recommend?

    I've always been kinda afraid of pressure cookers since I was a child and a friend's mother was using one and it "exploded" and food was all over the ceiling in their kitchen.

    Thought pressure cookers were going on the banned list after the Boston Bombing.
    You know, like guns after mass shootings.
    I found a preacher who spoke of the light but there was brimstone in his throat
    He'd show me the way according to him in return for my personal check
    I flipped my channel back to CNN and I lit another cigarette

    Well, apparently neither has happened. One can still purchase both.

    I am sure that the newer ones as well as the "instant pots" are much safer than those of years ago...and even then I know that most people used them without incident many, many times. Do you use one? I think the instant pots serve as pressure cookers, slow cookers and other uses as well....basically an all-purpose cooker.

    I remember my mother using one many, many, many, years ago with no problems.
    I have a "Coward in Chief" who wears a Tin Hat, rather than a "Commander in Chief"

    I have a pressure cooker, but not used in a long time. After you have cooked for the recommended time, you put the cooker in the sink and run cold wAter over it till this hissing stops and all of the steam is released. Use utensil as directed.
