Like "I just ordered a pressure cooker last week....always had one in my house growing up but was terrified of them...The new ones are safe and well after my last attempt at ribs (they were horrid) I decided it was time to get one....seriously ..fall off the bone ribs in 30 minutes...nice...plus you can make soups..pasta..sauces...anything really...sorry if I sound like commercial...but I go to school full time...just started a new job..have a house and a hubby to take care of and grand kids to watch..anything that can put a delish dinner on the table in half an hour in ONE POT..gets my vote.."
