Under pressure to get a tasty, nutritious dinner on the table in a flash? Like the idea of preparing fork-tender beef stew in thirty minutes and pot roast in under an hour? All this and more is made possible by the pressure cooker, a magical appliance that produces soul-satisfying, homemade food in one-third (or less) the standard cooking time.

In Pressure Perfect, Lorna Sass, the country's leading authority on pressure cooking, distills her two decades of experience into one comprehensive volume. First learn everything you need to know about buying and using today's 100% safe cookers. Then enjoy more than 200 recipes for preparing soups, meats, poultry, grains, beans, vegetables, and desserts in record time. How about whipping up a savory risotto in 4 minutes, chicken cacciatore in 12 minutes, or a delectable chocolate cheesecake in 25 minutes?

Because the pressure cooker tenderizes tough cuts of meat quickly, you can prepare fall-off-the-bone beef short ribs or lamb shanks on weekday nights instead of waiting for a special occasion. The pressure cooker also allows you to make delectable one-pot meals in minutes. Among the many innovative recipes and techniques, you'll learn to cook meatloaf and potatoes simultaneously in 10 minutes, and meatballs, pasta, and sauce at the same time in only 5 minutes. Many recipes also suggest Cook-Along ideas for preparing vegetables and grains along with the entrée.

To further help those cooking under pressure (and who isn't nowadays?), each chapter contains timing charts for quick reference. Tips and Pressure Points in every recipe ensure optimum results.

This ultimate guide to pressure cooking is a must for all busy cooks, boaters, brides, college students, and anyone looking for a great way to make irresistible, healthy, home-made food fast.

  • Not the book I thought it would be.

    Was not happy with this book I wanted one that had a few pic's of what the food should look like and this book was a little BORING. There are a few good recipes in it but a waste of money and time. And that Overstock wants to charge me $$$ dollars to return it to them. So now I am stuck with a useless book that I am never going to use. I have been an overstock customer for a few yrs and this is the 2nd item I have got from them I was not happy with. Just disappointed!!!

  • Pressure Perfect Review

    I was looking for a book with timing charts for pressure cooking whole grains and beans. Not only does this book have great timing charts, it has tons of pressure cooker specific tips. (Now I know why my beans always used to burst, and it wasn't overcooking!) It is also full of recipes my family will love, and the recipes come with suggestions for changing ingredients for variety or personal preference. I love this book.

  • especially helpful for first time users

    I recently purchased a new digital electronic pressure cooker. Having never used one before, I didn't find the recipe guide that came with the cooker helpful for adapting favorite recipes. This book provides helpful hints on cooking with various types of pressure cookers, as well as adapting cooking times depending on cut of meat, whether meat is frozen vs thawed, etc. I think it is particularly helpful to those new to pressure cooking and would definitely reccomend it.
