#Truth About four years ago, when I made my first recipe in my electric pressure cooker, I left the house with my kids because I was so scared. Now, my electric pressure cooker is a permanent fixture on my kitchen countertop, and I use it almost every day of the week, sometimes even multiple times a day. After you get acquainted with your electric pressure cooker, you can make easy, homemade meals for your family while being liberated from your kitchen and using fewer dishes.
