Pressure cookers are a somewhat controversial kitchen item. One one hand, they’re excellent tools for quickly cooking grains, dried beans, vegetables, and inexpensive cuts of meat. Converts swear by them and many wonderful cookbooks have been written to educate us and to celebrate their utility. On the other hand, despite enormous improvements in safety, the fears and distrust based on mishaps with not very well designed older models still keep many people away.

We’ll be looking at pressure cooking here in The Kitchn over the next two weeks, offering recipes, helpful tips, and reviews of the newer pressure cookers now available.

We’d love to hear from you in the comments about what you would like to see us cover and what prevents you from buying and using a pressure cooker.
