Annapolis Show Cookware

I forgot to get the name of the non-stick metal cookware one of the carney-type salesmen was showing at the boat show">Annapolis Boat Show. Not the pressure cooker, the other guy. Anyone remember?

Sorry, I had to carry home a $200 pressure cooker, but the admiral escaped the other guy's sales pitch.

We use pressure cookers all the time. Much safer to cook in a sealed container. That said, I once had the pressure cooker fly off the stove and hit a salon bunk inches from a sleeping crew person. Would have killed her if it had hit. Those suckers are heavy. Rice, beans, meat, anything you might eat for dinner, except a rare steak, can be done in a pressure cooker.

How in the heck did you pay $200 for a pressure cooker!!??? Last one I bought now costs $49 Canadian (about $49.50 US at current exchange rates).

I have used mine for a decade, and still have not had to replace any seals etc.

Even a large Lagostina costs only $129.99.

Is yours marine quality?

We bought a multi-cooker at Bed, bath, and beyond for a lot less money. It is electric so you will need a genset but it is a slow cooker, a rice steamer, and a pressure cooker. We also bought a cheap pressure cooker as we have no need to "KFC" cook chicken that the $200 dollar onne will.

MarkJ, I'm sure you won't be a bachelor for long but for the record Kuhn Rikon (?) makes a small one.

I use a 6qt pressure cooker 75% of the time. It will can 5 1-qt containers at a time and has been bulletproof. It gets far more use than the other pots or frying pans. I don't have a genset or big inverter or big battery bank so the crock pots, deep fryers, microwaves, and multi-cookers can't go home with me.

Pressure cooker 411 Even a bachelor needs at least a 4-quart if he wants to can in it. It's ideal for pint or half-pint jars. Cookers should not be filled more than 2/3, maybe a bit less if you're cooking frothy beans or applesauce. That's another reason not to get one that's too small. Best feature: not only reduces cooking time, cooking goes on after the burner is turned off or is needed for other courses. A real plus if you have only two burners.

They also save cooking fuel, take 1/3 - 1/4 the time to cook, allow you to use cheaper cuts of meat for superb results, allow you to preserve meats/poultry/fish/? in places where food is cheap to eat where food are expensive, and if you bury the rail or do the jibe, the cooker may dent the deck, but the contents will generally stay inside.

Just make sure to get a stainless steel one. There have been reports that the aluminum ones have heath concerns.

And I found the answer to my original question: it is TitanWare, with titanium in the nonstick, metal utensils won't hurt it. I'll let you know next year how I like it.
