Seems like my old fashioned stove top pressure cooker was a lot less complicated. I haven't really given this pressure cooker a fair shot. I tried it once and it was pretty discouraging. I will try again of course.
My sister and I both have this pot, new this year after Christmas and we both love it! But it says clearly, "Do not open till pressure has gone completely down" this is a definite to adhere to and my sister didn't and the pot exploded all over here kitchen but still she loves it. Cooking in it is so fast and taste very good! Saving you time and certainly tasting so good makes this pot a treasure to have.
