Anyone use a pressure cooker on board?

Robin, if you get really ambitious, you can also bake in a pressure cooker. Turns out nice and moist.

I haven't tried bread but know it is possible and even have a recipe somewhere.

Have you found your new boat yet?

Not yet, but I'm going to look at one this month. I'll be going down to Ft. Lauderdale for Memorial Day, and going to look at the boat on my way back. Keep fingers crossed! :D

Robin, there is also a forum on Facebook called Pressure Cooking on a Boat. As I mentioned, I expect that these will be for non-electric cookers. I've never seen an electric cooker, so perhaps they are a British thing and not over here.

I like using Pressure Cooker. It really saves a lot of time. It can be used to whip up a nutritious and tasty one-pot meal in mere minutes.

Just like everyone here on this forum I love to cook in a slow cooker. These slow cookers get ready dinners while you're out doing what needs to be done.

They do however need power whereas a stovetop pressure cooker can be used on a propane stove, also works as a good closed top pan in rough weather not pressurised as well as being a good sized pot for cooking a decent lobster. :D

I haven't seen any electric cooker on board either. But, I do have a non-electric cooker with me. I want to upgrade and looking for an electric cooker instead. Will check out the forum on FB for sure.
