"Was there a pressure cooker in your childhood home?

My parents had a big silver thing by Prestige. It came in two parts: a huge lower pan and a massive top. Both parts had a half a handle each, that when joined together formed a full handle.

On top of the lid was a nozzle where the steam blew out. On top of this went the most exotic feature of the whole apparatus, a heavy silver weight that looked like a small rod of nuclear material…."

Never had one that I recall. Or if we did, it was seldom used.

Nope but my wife got one soon after our marriage. Many good meals resulted.

No, but my sister-in-law has picked up a couple.

They come in handy.

No. We did have a crock pot,however. My mom used it to cook pot roasts,cottage hams and such in it.

I remember my mother using one a few times for canning when I was quite young, but I own one and use it several times a year. (New models are much safer than the old ones with the bobbling, hissing,and steaming pressure "safety" valve.)
