I want to buy a pressure cooker to make bone broth and to cook other meals. I like the idea of canning with it too (maybe even can my bone broth...) but my immediate goal is broth and meals. I've seen some great pressure cooker... (more)

@Alex and @pone - I looked up the Kuhn and it appears to be a stove top one. Do you prefer that to automatic? Do you have to watch it a lot while it's' in use? I was originally leaning toward stove top thinking it was more control... (more)

I enjoy making bone broth. But, sometimes after I've cooked bones for a day or two the bones are still hard. I'd like to get the marrow out of those hard bones without resorting to a hammer. Are pressure cookers good for softening hard... (more)

Yes, pressure cooking is faster to soften beef bones, but requires many hours. Rather than cook the stock so long, separate the stock, then soak the bones in a vinegar/water mix and they will soften enough to cream in a Vitamix, or similar... (more)

I currently have neither and just make it on the stove, but for every year my daily consumption of magical bone-broth is adding to my life, it is taking at least that much away from my husband's due to his anxiety that I will start a grease-fire... (more)

Hi, I just posted a video on the subject of making stock in a pressure cooker which may be of interest: http://youtu.be/yN9rgrQpc5g

I have encountered the information somewhere that the lectins can be cooked out of legumes with a pressure cooker. We really need beans in our budget! Any idea how long one would cook them to accomplish this?

It varies by bean type, and altitude. Some beans call for more extensive (longer time) treatment (see Tikivana and others above), Generally it is: clean&rinse, soak&rinse, pressure cook, ferment (if applicable). To speed phytate removal... (more)

I've been thinking about buying a pressure cooker namely for making bone broth, oxtail stews, curries, risotto, artichoke, beets...on and on. Basically I think it would be super useful. After seeing the awesome gelatinousness of nomnompaleo's... (more)

I don't know much about cooking, but am learning more since going paleo. In the interests of saving time, what are the most efficient methods of cooking? The 4 things I'm looking for are: 1) Health 2) Time and Ease 3) Low Cost 4) Acceptable... (more)

I think a crockpot is easier and worry free. Just load it in the morning, turn it on low and walk away...supper is ready when you get home. It is great for making bone broths too. Pressure cookers can blow up if you forget about them- my Dad... (more)

I cook all kinds of meats in the pressure cooker, so it's for more than canning. Living at an elevation of 6000 feet, it takes forever to cook on the stove. I find that it tenderizes the meat and infuses flavor in it while shortening the cooking... (more)
