5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book. Easy to follow. Jan. 5 1999
Format:Paperback
The recipes in this book are easy to follow and taste wonderful. The Steam-Roasted Chicken (page 83) was falling off the bones and was very tender and juicy. The Low-fat Chicken Cacciatore (page 84) was just as wonderful. I had to buy my sister her own copy so she would quit taking mine.

5.0 out of 5 stars I love the pressure cooker and this book. Why? Feb. 22 2001
Format:Paperback
I work and coming home to face a pile of raw ingredients that somehow must be converted into a dinner is pretty depressing sometimes. Besides, I'm hungry too!
Many people don't think of the pressure cooker as a tool for speedy cooking, but you can make delicious stews (try the one in this book, it's wonderful) and other roasts and one-pot dishes really quickly. I really love the steamed chicken; it's so digestible and really delicious. It helps to have this cookbook because it isn't always easy to figure out how to convert a regular recipe to a pressure-cooked version. These recipes never fail. We got a T-Fal pressure cooker and really use it a lot. I even make desserts in it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank heaven! Jan. 13 2001
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I absolutely loved this book. It saved me so much time in the kitchen. The recipes were delightful as well. If you like this book, you'll love Angela Spenceley's two new books "A Taste of the Caribbean" and "Just Add Rum! Cookbook". Both books feature recipes which can be easily adapted to the pressure cooker. A must for any good cook who wishes to add exotic island cuisine to her list of accomplishements.

3.0 out of 5 stars You'll need a casserole dish... Nov. 2 2004
By myhale - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
This book is good for basic pressure cooker info and recipes. There is a good bean cooking reference. However, some of the tastier recipes require you to place a casserole dish inside your pressure cooker. This doesn't work in my case (5 qt pressure cooker).

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little book Sept. 16 2008
By Snow White - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I like this book. Nothing at all actually "wrong" with it. The information is good and all the recipes I have tried turned out really well. It might be a good "starter book". However, I must honestly say that I would not have bought it if Miss Vickie's Big Book of Pressure Cooker Recipes had been available then. I like to get the most for the money. Miss Vickie's book is more than twice the size (considering thickness as well as the size of the pages...maybe more than 3 times larger), with much more information, time charts for every kind of food, and over 400 recipes. Yet, it doesn't cost a whole lot more. No photos in either book...but we all know what food looks like.
2.0 out of 5 stars Not That Good. Dec 7 2013

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Loved this cookbook series until this particular pressure cooker version. The recipes are uninspiring and there is nothing new here.
Information about the pressure cooker is modicum and overall it seems as if it was 'oh hurry...let's get a pressure cooker version out there too'. That's about all I can say. I wouldn't buy it again or recommend it to a friend.
