I bought one a few months ago from Microwave Pressure Cooker RV Camper - $9.45 and like it. Not a true pressure cooker but it does cook quicker than a regular pan since the cover clamps on. I always keep the top steam holes covered. Does yours have a cover lock?

Rice and Beef stew is easier in it and doesn't stick like a metal pan does.

Cleans up real easy!

This is really nifty also...

Just ordered the Pop a Plate. Great idea. Thanks MacGyverRI.

Nifty little microwave cooker. Thinking about it, for home at least. No capacity for microwave oven on my boat.

Have been using pressure cooker for years, only a 4 litre one, about a US gallon in size. Used for stove top stews mainly when weather dictates no fiddling about in the galley, just add veg and any other protein in and cook for 20min. The biggest assets are lack of condensation in side the boat and low cooking gas usage. Have made roast pork in it whilst anchored off Gibraltar for Chrismas lunch! A samll trick when cooking large cuts is to brown the outside by frying in the pressure cooker first and then adding enough water to get the steam pressure going. If you can get holdn of Annie Hill's book, Voyaging on a small income there are some good tips on using.
