Does anyone else use a pressure cooker? What do you usually cook in it?
We mainly only use ours for cooking soup beans. It's so much easier than letting them soak all night and then cooking them for hours. This way it takes about 1 1/2-2 hours. And SOMEHOW it also takes the uhm.... "the gas" out of the beans. That's the best part. LOL

I was making candy with my grandmother and aunt for Christmas. The pressure cooker exploded and my aunt had third degree burns on her hands, face and neck. I have never bought a pressure cooker and will not after seeing what happend to my aunt. I dont want it blowing up in my face.

I've never used one, my grandma had one but I don't remember her ever using it either. After reading these posts about them, I don't think I'll be getting one anytime soon either. shannone, I'm sorry about your aunt. I hope everything is all right now...

This happend a year ago and she ended up with no scares. My aunt will not go near a pressure cooker now. When my grandma calls her and asks if she wants to help make candy she says I dont think so.
