When people started talking about the Instant Pot I thought, "Hmmm...Grandma used to have a pressure cooker."

So I shelled out $15 for an old-fashioned pressure cooker. No electronics, just a pot with a weight on top to control the pressure. Since I have a very small kitchen I had to donate a pot to the Serenity House to make room for the pressure cooker in my cabinet.

I use the pressure cooker all the time now. Sometimes I use it twice in one day (to make chicken soup in the morning and beef stew in the afternoon, for example).

Who needs a fancy Instant Pot when a beef stew I used to simmer for 4 hours can be made in 1/2 hour in the pressure cooker? And be even more tender.
