Is a Pressure Cooker an Undiscovered Prepping Secret?

If you’ve got a pressure cooker for canning, have you considered how useful it may be in the absence of electricity? Why couldn't you put a pressure cooker over a heat source, such as a gas stove, camping stove, or perhaps a roaring campfire? I don’t mean only for canning, but for cooking ordinary meals, even desserts. Their versatility is underrated.

In fact, I think a pressure cooker is the survivalist’s equivalent to microwave cooking. That’s because food cooks 70% faster under pressure. Pressure cookers are quieter and safer than ever before. They require less energy and won’t heat up your kitchen when you’re cooking meals.

Pressure cookers come in various sizes, too, from 2-21 quarts. If you get a used one from a yard sale or relative, make sure you know how to use it properly and safely. Buying a new one for yourself or as a gift for a family starting out would be a wise investment.

What about recipes? If you buy a new pressure cooker, it may come with a recipe book. You may also want to buy Miss Vickie's Big Book of Pressure Cooker Recipes, by Vickie Smith, available on Amazon.com.

I just ordered an Excalibur Dehydrator but next on my list in a pressure cooker. Are there some brands or models of pressure cookers you would recommend over others?
