100 foolproof pressure-cooker recipes that will change the way you cook. In Pressure Cooker Perfection, the first volume in our 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.

Every recipe is rigorously tested, beautifully photographed, and will work for any type of pressure cooker. If you're new to pressure cooking, this book makes the experience foolproof and fearless. Dishes that once seemed like long weekend affairs or were too labor intensive to muster on a weeknight are now ready in a flash: braised short ribs that fall off the bone after only an hour; dried beans from scratch that skip the long pre-soaking process; and a creamy, perfectly cooked risotto ready in six minutes, without constant stirring. Martha Stewart's Pressure Cooker demonstrates the incredible versatility of the appliance with a chapter devoted solely to desserts, such as cakes, puddings, and more. Staples that traditionally require long cooking times, such as whole grains, dried beans, and stocks, are finished much more quickly and can be transformed into countless, easy meals that will serve you throughout the week.
