      Dear Ben and James @Sortedfood, when using pressure cooker you have to wait for it to "steam/whistle" then decrease the temperature of the hob to maintain the steam/temperature, then start timing on that signal. So pork can be tender within 30mins from that hissing sound, then oxtail with bones will last for 45-1 hour. I hope this helps

    I'm not a big fan of pressure cookers. Both of my grandmas and a friend had one (my grandmas were from WMF and my friend had one from Tefal) and after around 7-9 years of use the valve would have a malfunction, where you couldn't release the steam (probably because bits of the food and grease clogged it up) In one case my dad opened one of the pots after hours of being off the stove and just a bit warm on the outside. But apparently the soup inside was still more than boiling hot in the middle and when he opened the lid the wall of steam burned his face. He didn't suffer any permanent damages but he wasn't far from it. So I'm not a big fan of those :/

    If you’re wondering about a New York cheesecake, my mother makes an amazing one, and it takes like 2 or 3 hours at a low temp to cook. 10 minutes for the crust, add the filling, cook for an hour, drop the temperature, cook for an hour or two (I can’t remember). Then it’s ready. It ends up dense, creamy, and absolutely amazing. In my opinion, that’s the only way you can make a true cheesecake

    Glad you used stove top cookers. They are more affordable than the electric and are great as pots in general. You pretty much hit the things a stove top cooker is really good at. Lentils cook pretty fast anyway and are not pre soaked a lot of times. Where you see really significant savings is beans. The site "hip pressure cooking" and book of the same name have the most reliable times/ instructions I have found. America's test kitchen, normally pretty solid did a total fail when they did pressure cookers and their book is completely useless. Somewhere they got the idea that the timing should start from when the burner is lit??? Anyway Great Job. Not too many good videos on the PC. Beans: quick presoak 3 min on high pressure, natural release ~10 min. Rince. Cook 6-10 min (depending on the texture you want), natural release. So you can go from dry pinto beans to finished refried beans in under 45 min. Custard is another win. I use ramekins and do six in a 6 qt cooker. They cook in 5 min. @ high, cool for 5-10 min release. Chill them down and serve. If you like really soft custard probably not your first choice. Though maybe at low pressure for longer? At 4 min. I found them a bit uneven in texture. Oh and another great use is stock. Chicken stock in about 45 min. RE: electric ones. I don't hate them and will probably get one because of the versatility and the fact you don't have to babysit it at all.

    I use my pressure cooker for broths and stocks the most. I can get THE best stocks from anything in just 1 hour. I've read that 1 hour in a pressure cooker equals 4 hours of simmering. Also, the fewer ingredients in stock the better it is.

    In Brasil, we use a pressure cooker almost every day... and pretty much solely to cook beans. Often, just for the cooking step, with a further seasoning step after the beans are soft... basically saute up diced onions and garlic, throw in the beans and the water they cooked in, salt, pepper and some oil. DELICIOUS. Sometimes for a bonus treat we'll throw in a sealed can of sweetened condensed milk while the beans are cooking under pressure. Pull the can out and let it cool, then crack it open and you've got some super easy doce-de-leite... or more commonly in spanish, dulce-de-leche

    The thing with the cheesecake- If you have an electric pressure cooker, you don't have to worry about temp fluctuations in the oven. It regulates temperature for ALL cooking, which is what makes them so amazing. I didn't even know stove top pressure cookers still existed. Made a chocolate cheesecake in mine a few months ago, it was amazing. I didn't have to watch it, I didn't even have to think about it. Pop it in, leave it, and delicious cheesecake.

    You should try a Thermomix. I guess they're not very common in England but in Germany they are a plague! And personally I really dislike them (seeing James hating on a pressure cooker, I think he will as well) but it could be interesting to see something extraordinary made with it rather than just...dips.

    Well more than time look at it as this.. It saves energy and water. That's good always. And yes, please give it standing time off the hob, not all food needs a quick release. When you remove it from the hob, the heat dies down but the food cooks slowly the remaining way due to the remaining pressure.

    In Brazil we eat (or at least used to) rice and beans almost every day, and pressure cookers are very popular for that reason. Cooking beans in 30 minutes instead of hours is so much more practical. You can cook like a kg at a time and freeze it in portions. I use it a lot to cook meats as well. And cooked condensed milk, of course. What can't we do with condensed milk? :D

    A pressure cooker is an essential kitchen utensil at Indian homes and you can most definitely create Risotto in it. We make Khitchdi in it which is pretty similar consistency. Just need to be careful about the timing and the amount of liquid added to cook.
