Pressure Cooker Perfection: 100 Foolproof Recipes That Will Change the Way You Cook (Paperback)
In Pressure Cooker Perfection, the first volume in our new test kitchen handbook series, the editors at America's Test Kitchen demystify an appliance that to many home cooks remains intimidating -- but shouldn't. Modern pressure cookers are safer, quieter, more reliable, and more user-friendly than old-fashioned jiggle-top models. And they can prepare a wide range of foods -- everything from barbecue to risotto -- in record time.
Cooking under pressure results in better-tasting dishes because every drop of flavor is trapped in the sealed pot. This fact, combined with the shorter cooking time, means that your dishes will be supercharged with flavor. And cooking under pressure is versatile. While they're ideal for roasts and stews, pressure cookers can also turn out perfectly tender beans, grains, and legumes in short order.
If ever there was a cooking method that could benefit from the obsessive trial and error that our test kitchen is known for, this is it. When cooking time is compressed, every minute matters, and when flavors are amplified, even a small change becomes significant. We ran hundreds of tests in fifteen pressure cookers to find out what works and what doesn't, and we deliver the foolproof, guaranteed-successful recipes in Pressure Cooker Perfection. With this foolproof guide to cooking under pressure, every home cook will be guaranteed success.

As new cook to pressure cooking, I needed something that would carefully guide me through the principles. And cookbooks from America's Test Kitchen never fails...and it may even be redundant for many cooks. However, I always appreciate the thoughtful ways they design a recipe with the authors often telling you why certain methods didn't work and why they made the choices they did. This book has a small collection of pressure cooker recipes but it will likely meet all your needs. And once you're comfortable, I almost sure you can build on them, as cooks are wont to do. The directions are very clear, the ingredients all manageable and great caveats for electric cookers (all the recipes are based on traditional stove top pressure cookers). I would highly recommend this cookbook for anyone just starting to use a pressure cooker. I'm sure seasoned cooks could use this as well, but these are some very good core recipes.Read More
