100 foolproof pressure-cooker recipes that will change the way you cook. In Pressure Cooker Perfection, the first volume in ATK's new test kitchen handbook series, the editors at America's Test Kitchen demystify an appliance that to many home cooks remains intimidating--but shouldn't. Modern pressure cookers are safer, quieter, more reliable, and more user-friendly than old-fashioned jiggle-top models. And they can prepare a wide range of foods--everything from barbecue to risotto--in record time.

Cooking under pressure results in better-tasting dishes because every drop of flavor is trapped in the sealed pot. This fact, combined with the shorter cooking time, means that your dishes will be supercharged with flavor. And cooking under pressure is versatile. While they're ideal for roasts and stews, pressure cookers can also turn out perfectly tender beans, grains, and legumes in short order.

If ever there was a cooking method that could benefit from the obsessive trial and error that our test kitchen is known for, this is it. When cooking time is compressed, every minute matters, and when flavors are amplified, even a small change becomes significant. We ran hundreds of tests in fifteen pressure cookers to find out what works and what doesn't, and we deliver the foolproof, guaranteed-successful recipes in Pressure Cooker Perfection. With this foolproof guide to cooking under pressure, every home cook will be guaranteed success.

Pressure Cooker Perfection features:

  • 100 foolproof recipes guaranteed to please, and to work every time
  • Full color photos accompany recipes so you can see how they should really look
  • Pressure Cooker 101 familiarizes you with the appliance and how it works with a simple-to-understand diagram
  • Shopping Guide and Key Traits based on our testing of a dozen best-selling models
  • Well-tested charts for cooking everyday staples like grains, meats, and vegetables
  • Recipe shorthand includes yield, total cooking time, time under pressure, and pressure release method
  • A 'Why this Recipe Works' feature highlights discoveries made our way to the final recipe
  • Keys to Success and Test Kitchen Tips reveal important steps in photos and text
  • Troubleshooting Tips provide answers to questions about substitutions, adapting recipes to an electric pressure cooker, knowing when food is done, and more.

  • ATK pressure cooker book

    Don't get me wrong, I mostly like America's Test Kitchen. But unfortunately this book, while it has great recipes, was overpriced by about $10 IMO. But then that is the way of all their products. Look through it thoroughly before you buy it. I think it will be useful, but for the money they could have added a bit more content.

    I recommend this product.

  • Gave me ratings on best Pressure cookers

    Found better pressure cookers rated for how well each functions in comparing those available on market. Appreciated that book could show those rated by chefs who tested them in test kitchen. Will exchange one rated lower for one rated higher

    I recommend this product.

  • Pressure cookers scared me....but no more

    I am 64 years old and have never used a pressure cooker until today. My mother never used one, so I never learned. I was very nervous to try. I bought a pressure cooker a few months ago and didn't dare use it. I wanted to cook brown rice in it because I have heard that they cook it much faster and better, but I didn't dare try, until I saw this book on your website, and this saved me, or taught me. I have spent the last few days studying this book along with the information that came with the pan, and today I finally got brave and cooked some rice, then I was so daring I tried green beans. It wasn't so bad, as long as I had the book nearby to follow word by word, at least the first time. The second time was a breeze. I used it on low the first time, then was so brave the second time that I cooked on high! I think I'll try something else tomorrow! Thanks to the book!

    I recommend this product.
