      This is the best cook book for use with a pressure cooker. Every recipe I have tried was excellent. I did find though that for use with an electric pressure cooker you have to double the cook time, but that was a minute set back. Overall I would highly recommend this book.

    • Decent Cooking Book

      This is a big book and has lots of recipes. I tried a couple and they turned out OK. My biggest problem is there is almost no pictures in this book. I know this is a paperback book but it would be nice to have at least black and white pictures. I am a visual person and i get motivated to cook something when i see something that looks delicious. With this book it feels like i am reading a yellow pages.

    • Wish there were pictures

      Don't know why I continue to order cook books without photos. Recipes are good, but complicated and I miss photos, there are none.

    • Great cookbook for beginners

      I already have this cook book for over a year. Got it when I got my new pressure cooker. It is a very comprehensive book and good for the beginner. Therefore, I bought this one for a graduating college student who is getting a pressure cooker for a birthday/graduation present. This book explains the basics of how a pressure cooker works, has time charts for cooking all kinds of veggies and beans, and has lots a good recipes that are not fancy and just use common ingredients. Just good home cooking!

    • Lots of recipes, but no pictures

      Large book, with plenty of recipes, but a little too complex and NO PICTURES!!!! Just a little disappointed, especially for the price.

    • Miss Vickies Big Book of Pressure Cooking Recipes

      Wonderful Book. I loved it so much I bought my brother one. It uses everyday ingredients and is for normal cooking, nothing so fancy it cannot be pronounced. And the results are delicious. I have used the book 4 or 5 times and the dishes were delicious. I recommend this book for any level of experienced cooks. My brother used it for stew and it turned out great, and he is not a very good cook!!! I would rate it 5 stars or more, the information is regarding pressure cookers is the most extensive I have ever seen. It is for stove top cookers, and I use an electric one, but everything I've tried turned out great.
