I don’t think any kitchen should be without a pressure cooker.
I also wish that pressure cookers were easier to learn to use. I found my first pressure cooker to be so intimidating that it sat around on the side at home for months before I got around to using it.
I did, however, finally master it and I am so glad that I did.
The Giantex 6-Quart Aluminum Pressure Cooker is not my first pressure cooker, it’s not even my second. This isn’t because I break my pressure cookers but because I keep giving them away to friends and family once I’ve taught them how to use one.
Don’t Take My Word For It
If you think I’m exaggerating about the utility of a pressure cooker; you should watch this video from America’s Test Kitchen where a bunch of top chefs explain why they can’t live without their pressure cookers.
There Are Online Tutorials Too
You don’t need to struggle with what your pressure cooker is all about now either. The days of reading manuals written in poorly translated English are over; now you can have someone walk you through the basics online.
Like this rather lovely YouTube tutorial:
But What About This Cooker?
Well, the Giantex 6-Quart Aluminum Pressure Cooker is pleasantly lighter than the first pressure cooker I bought, and it works just as well. I make a Polish chicken stew called rossou in it and it is absolutely perfect.
It should last a good few years and it wasn’t too fiddly to take apart and give it a thorough cleaning either.
