Our first favorite thing we would like to share with you is our pressure cooker! Whitney bought this for Neil for his birthday last year, and it has become the diva of our kitchen. Every meal we make with this appliance has turned out perfectly. Pressure cookers are useful because they allow you to cook what should be a 4 hour meal in about 40 minutes, without sacrificing flavor. We like this electric model because it really is no hassle. You just put in your ingredients, lock the lid, and press a few buttons. In no time, you have a delicious meal, no fuss, and no mess. Plus, it’s super easy to clean. We give this Cuisinart Electric Pressure Cooker four thumbs up.
