Do you remember the warnings given to you by your elders and the stories of pressure cookers exploding on unsuspecting people? Most of us heard them and most of us have been a little of leary of pressure cookers ever since.
They are making a resurgence, though, and are pretty well suited to RVing. They cook your food in an amazingly short period of time while still offering the hands-free use of a crockpot. It is also being said that pressure cooking can better preserve the nutrients in food due to the reduced cooking time. As for those old exploding ones your Aunt used to warn you about…they have been completely redesigned and are safe to use these days.
RVers like their freedom and most are not interested in being tied to the stove for the day. A pressure cooker can serve up a hearty beef stew in about 30 minutes. Most people rave about how tender the food is and how happy they are with their new-old appliance. The new designs are sturdy and energy efficient as well.
Lots of things come and go for campers and we see our share of trends. We have been hearing more and more about the new style of pressure cookers and expect to see more of them around the campground.
