No . I was talking about filling the cooker with water, to minimize the amount of air. The only air pressure would be in the fill line, a tiny amount, which can't expand very far. Under 150 PSI, there simply is not the volume there to expand very far.

Thanks for the egg info. I'll experiment a little. I've boiled eggs for many years but ask PC advice, as once I forgot I had some on in a regular pot. Hour later heard an explosion and went to the kitchen to find an "egg of mass destruction" situation. Took a week to clean up.

Twenty-five minutes at pressure and natural relese. Unbelievable, tend meatloaf with roasted tomatoes is the result.
Duuuude, Pressure cooker on a sailboat is a must. Anyone ever tried a loaf of bread?

dude,

half this thread/discussion is about bread, please go back a few pages...


ym

as for the meat loaf, and almost every other meat item... try using GOLDEN MUSHROOM SOUP, not the regular mushroom, although that is ok, but the GOLDEN mushroom is to die for.


meatloaf and rice with mushroom gravy.. omg!!!!!!

Do I need to save on 2 microns of Propane gas?
Will it make my cooking better tasting?

So I left it on the shelf
As I think I stated above they can actually make food taste better by sealing in flavour. Hippies into macrobiotics also believe they help seal in vitamins and minerals, so the food not only tastes better, but is better for you.
If you do ever find one of stainless, although more expensive, it might be worth reconsidering the purchase?

How much salt water are you planning to have in your galley? I think you may be thinking a little too much sailor type there.

And you might be surprised and what you can offload once you've figured out how/what to cook with it. A PC can do the job of a couple of other things already in your galley, so they can go away.

You should never have more than 15 lbs pressure in a cooker if you have more your pressure relief valve needs to be checked Stsinless won't expand at the normal pressure.

Im fairly sure that everyone here understand that all things expand under heat, and then contract under cold, so why is it so hard to understand that a PC will expand, (first because it is hot), and they because of pressure?

Im not talking inches, or even quarter inches. ... milimeters, yea...

maybe as much as a centimeter or maybe close to a quarter inch... if the valve is close to release.

I don't think that you understand how little pressure 15psi really is. If a stainless steel PC expands more than 1 millimetre I eat my hat.
And that would be uncooked too.

you would have Callipers big enough.....wouldn't you?
without them how did you find out about the expanding PC in the first place?
