Default cooking without burning the house down

my usual quest to get food on the table and still have a table.

i have been looking at a mail order catalog that is offerring me a microwave pressure cooker for eight dollars. has anyone tried this?

i seem to recall some amazing stories about regular pressure cookers.

I haven't tried this, but they do have a Microware pressure cooker ( Jobar Microwave Pressure Cooker - JC2045
) at Target--where you can at least look at it. Since Target's selling it for $9.99, there's a good chance that it's the very same one you saw in the catalogue--just at a higher price. Must admit it sounds interesting.

A microwave pessure cooker...

Sounds like an interesting idea to say the least. However I know nothing about them. I know about pressure cooking, and microwaves. I like many foods cooked in pressure cookers, they are almost always quite flavorful. I'm personally not fond of microwave cooking because it doesn't brown things. I use mine for reheating.

As for safety for people with seizures that make cooking a hazzard, this does sound like a solution that could help you. At least in not setting things aflame. You will still have to deal with burns if you spill the hot food on yourself, but that is true with all hot foods.

Good luck in your quest...

And don't ever get a deep fyer!!!

Sounds like an oxymoron to me!

Why in the world do you need to cook something under
pressure if you are using microwaves?

hum and there is a target about five blocks from me. this one is in the carol wright catalog for 7.99 with free shipping, so i should go look at it in person and see how big it is.

my problem is that i don't have anything that goes in my microwave that is big enough to make howdydave's hash. hum that didn't sound right, but i can't figure out a better way to put it. this has a 10 cup capacity. is that two and a half quarts?

in the same catalog there is a set of three microwave pans with lids for 7.99 for all three. one 2 and a half quarts, one 2 quarts, one 1 and a half quarts. again free shipping.

looking at it at target is a good idea.

I want to come cook for all of you! To fill your freezers with good things! I guess instead of that, since I cannot, I should look for someone local to me to cook for instead.

A microwave might not work very well on a deep frier anyway!

Oil probably has a different resonant frequency than water.
Microwaves are set at water's resonant frequency.

that is interesting, i never knew that. never thought about it, i guess.

i remember in the beginning of microwaves people said that they cooked from the middle out and when i got one and it didn't i thought i was doing something wrong.

in any event, i ordered the microwave pots and the microwave pressure cooker. so everybody please start thinking about low salt recipies that are extremely simple and that i can't blow up the kitchen making.
