Pressure Perfect: Two Hour Taste in Twenty Minutes Using Your Pressure Cooker Hardcover – January 6, 2004
Frequently bought together
Customers who bought this item also bought
Predating the Crock-Pot was its opposite in cooking speed, the pressure cooker. Contemporary pressure cookers take much of the guesswork and anxiety out of their operation and make them a boon for the cook who needs to get something on the table fast and with minimum fuss. Pressure Perfect not only gives dozens of recipes for the pressure cooker, but Sass also shows how to modify each recipe to create an ever-varying series of dishes. Her beef in beer and mustard gravy not only gives the cook a choice among brisket, chuck, oxtails, or short ribs but also offers alteration in sauce structure to create either horseradish cream or chili versions. Tables throughout the book explain how to adjust standard recipes to take advantage of a pressure cooker. Mark Knoblauch

Pressure Perfect delivered more than I had expected from a cookbook. I wanted to learn to make more than just stews and tender meats, and to learn how to use a pressure cooker to its fullest. It taught me how to safely and reliably use a pressure cooker, but also how to cook! Once you make a certain recipe Ms. Sass shows you how to make several different versions of a dish, using simple variations of the ingredients. Pretty soon, you find yourself getting creative with basic recipes and adapting them to your favorite cuisines and preferences.
This book is also entertaining and fun to read. The author really knows her way around foods and techniques. Her descriptions and comments read as though you were in the kitchen chatting and cooking along with her. She encourages you and simplifies the process, making it enjoyable to use this machine that some people still find scarey. And yet, instructions are perfectly clear, and exact enough to make the PC cooking adventure pretty fool-proof. When I serve my friends a new gourmet dish from this book, I smile & say to myself, “It’s a snap!” To put things in perspective, I am an avid cook and cookbook collector, having owned nearly 400 cookbooks. And still I say this one of my favorites!
The book arrived, and I quickly scanned it and found a recipe to try. Turned out amazing! I've had the book less than 2 weeks and have found I've used my cooker almost every day since receiving the book. I'm even tempted to break out my old stove-top cooker, check the seal and get that baby rocking, too!
All the information in this book is solid and works just fine with the electric version. There are useful cooking charts in multiple places. Most of your basic foods are included. I added simple tabs to my book. Would've been nice for the publisher to have addressed navigation a bit more.
I love Lorna's encouragement to actually "write" in your cookbook. Don't know why I've never done that, and I am not a young cook.
A lot of people like photos in their cookbooks. You'll not get that, but photos are not necessary. An ingredient list is more indicative to me of what a dish will taste like than a photo.
My family is definitely eating better these last couple weeks. Thanks Lorna!
