I love pressure cooking. I have two, a large one and this tiny one.
Remember the smaller the appliance, the less electricity it takes to operate. I believe I paid $19.99 for this and I have more than gotten my money’s worth.
I use this over and over again especially to cook rice. Hubby loves rice and I hate the mess it makes when I cook it on the stove. I usually end up with a spill all over my burner.
Besides rice it makes just enough macaroni and cheese for two to three. I no longer eat pasta or rice but it is perfect for 2-3 servings when we have the grandchildren.
It is also perfect to make those rice mixes or even Kraft macaroni and cheese which I do sometimes for West. Many days I have made soup in it. It is just enough for us.
It takes so little energy over what it costs to use a burner on my stove. I measured it with my KWH meter and it is just a few cents to operate. I only use my larger pressure cooker when I am cooking a larger piece of meat, making a stew, a pot roast, or when we have company.
So if you want to save money on electricity, think about the size of the appliance that you are using. Use the smallest one that will cook what you want efficiently. And remember in the heat(summer or longer where you live), use it outside on your patio, porch, or garage.
