IMUSA Pressure Cooker Review + Giveaway

Recently, IMUSA provided me with a fabulous pressure cooker to review. I have to be honest with you, I had never cooked with a pressure cooker until I recently received one from IMUSA.  In fact, I have always been a tad bit scared to use a pressure cooker.  All of my worries were put to ease when I did a little bit of research online about the safety of using pressure cookers.  I found that if you follow the manufactures directions to a tee you won't have any safety issues while using your pressure cooker.  



There are many benefits as to why people like to use pressure cookers.  For instance did you know that a pressure cooker can help reduce cooking time by an amazing 70 percent! Or how about the fact that it retains more vitamins and nutrients that using other cooking methods!  

I remember my grandfather use to always make hot beef sandwiches that were to die for!  The beef would cook perfectly and the sandwich would almost melt in your mouth.  My grandfather has been gone for six years now which means I haven't got to enjoy one of his famous hot beef sandwiches in 6 years,  so I figured it was time to bring the recipe back to use! 

I read the directions fully before using the pressure cooker.  I was very surprised by how easy it was to use and how it reduced the cooking time.  Once the hot beef was done, I spread it on buns that were spread with horseradish sauce.  The flavor really brought back fond memories and a taste that my tastebuds hadn't experienced in quite a while!  I am now in love with my new pressure cooker and wouldn't trade it for anything!


BUY IT: You can purchase the IMUSA 7-1/2 Quart Aluminum Pressure Cooker from Amazon.com for $39.99.

I am with the rest... I have never used a pressure cooker. I remember my mother using one and my aunt. My Aunts blew up and food went all over her kitchen. That cured me of wanting to try one. I bet now days they don't blow up like that.
