    I've mentioned before how i cook most things in my pressure cooker now, for the speed, ease, and the minimal cleanup.

    There is a whole online community on facebook of people just discovering pressure cooking. Every few days someone asks how to clean the steel liner pot.

    when i was a kid all pots were steel or cast iron (aluminum was too soft and acid like tomato products would dissolve the anodizing). we cleaned with hot water, soap (or kosher salt for the cast iron) and steel wool.

    40 years of non-stick coatings and people have forgotten how to clean steel: they think it is as soft as teflon or aluminum. I keep telling them "its steel": water can't rust it and you can't hurt it. get a brillo pad or a 3m nylon scrunge pad. it will shine.

    they are all afraid they will scour thru the steel and wear a hole in it.

    i really ought to write some amazon ebooks on how to do ordinary things. there is a whole 3 or 4 generations of people who just never learned how to do really simple shit.

    i have been selling people at work on them too: we leave work at 5-7pm and everything that saves us time and allows us to make fresh meals every night is a plus.

    Have you ever heard of Sous Vide? Your mind will be blown. I dare anyone to cook more precise.

    The goals are different: I'm looking to be able to cook fresh foods fast, not precise, and having to finish meats with a torch to get a sear means I will have extra steps to make a sauce since there will be no fond to work with from cooking the meats.

    Does it really take that long to cook a piece of chicken?

    What are you cooking in there?
