the expansion is barely noticable, but it is there... if you have calipers you could measure it easily.

and it's ok if you dont believe... no skin off my nose... but the truth and facts are there... just up to you to be able to recognize the facts along with the physics...

Just saying.....

not sure but it would depend on the size / thickness of the piece you are trying to 'bend'

I know i can bend a stainless steel spoon, fork, knife, and otehr utensils...

So as a pressure cooker non believer you do own one and callipers big enough to measure the difference and you did do the test to see how much or if they
expand. I am impressed , I have never thought of doing that with any of my cookers.....and by the way I can bent two forks at the same time :-)
cheers

no, actually, like i said originally, I saw the change in size... actually, i saw it in reverse, when it was cooling... right after i took off the weight. the pressure came out quickly, and the change in size was kinda dramatic to me, as i wasnt expecting anything, it was then i did some research, and of course, used common sense..

but, it is obvious some people like to argue... we're done...

Finally got around to PC'ing a pork loin- turned out yummy and tender! The only thing I would do differently is adhere to the prescribed time for the potatoes. I left them in a few minutes longer than my manual stated because I didn't believe they could cook that fast. Sure enough they did, so mine came out a little overcooked as a result.

pork is one of the better meats to PC, as they are usually a lil tougher...

and yes, potatoes are mush after 10 minutes... but the sauce is thicker naturally...


and not to take the subject off course, (again). but does anyone use 'SEAL a MEAL' vacuum bag things... they are fabulous for storing everythinbg...

Often the culprit in burning is carrots. When you have carrots int he batch, add extra water. For some reason carrots soak up liquid and the sugar in them caramelizes. You could also try a flame tamer under the pot after it has gotten to pressure.

Quite . My mum was given a pressure cooker as a wedding present, she is now 73 and its still going strong as is my mum. Had a few poppet valves and needs the rubber seal replacing occasionally but still works fine. As a child I used to be horrified when she chucked it under a cold tap then lifted off the little weight to release the pressure filling the kitchen with steam. I did try this once in my first home and promptly put several pounds of summer pudding containing blackberries and apple in bread all over a recently painted kitchen ceiling oops. I am a bit more gentle releasing the pressure now, afterall its is still cooking for a while.

Great bit of kit though

A house tap will give you 80 lbs.

Thread a tyre valve into the blowout plug , or the rocker plug.

pressure cooker bread

Please send a recipe for bread in the pressure cooker! We are heading off-shore and can't spare the LPG for oven-cooked bread.

thanks!
