The For Dummies books are pretty much exactly as advertised: a gentle introduction to any subject. So it is with Pressure Cookers For Dummies. This how-to manual takes you through the basics of the various types of pressure cookers and the way in which they work.

However, the book also boasts quite a few lovely pressure cooker recipes to tempt even longtime pressure-cooker users. (I've been using the pressure cooker my Cuban mother bought in the Bronx in 1962 until not so long ago. Thank you, Ma
There are some good points in this book, but there are also things that should be here, and were not. It seems like the Dummies editors are taking short cuts and not making their books for dummies but for a select few.

The Dummies series was great at one time. Not comprehensive about the subject but it not only got you started, but you would be pretty well advanced by the time you were done with a book. Her Lacalamita is very enthusiastic about his passion.

But he is repetitive and that eats into
I like this cookbook. I made one recipe and it was just fine. I checked this out from the library. I wouldn't mind owning this, but it wasn't compelling enough for me to purchase my own copy. I enjoyed the tips and tricks sections.
Fun to read but hopelessly out of date. Pressure cookers are far more capable than they were in 2001, so the information in this book is inaccurate and recipes would have to be adapted to newer appliances.
