Household Hints



   MeiDei  Why I don't use my pressure cooker....

   FlatCityGirl  Oh, my stars!

I'm guessing that those two bare light bulbs in the ceiling had a cover over them until the lid took it out.

I haven't used a pressure cooker in years. In fact, I haven't seen mine since I made the move from Virginia to Texas --it might have been sold in a garage sale in Virginia. I seldom used it because I had heard horror stories from mother about things just such as this happening to people, and was always afraid it would happen to me. Mother used one a lot when I was a kid. I remember that hissing sound, and the rocking of the doohickey on top.

Supposedly, the new ones have some kind of a safety feature that keeps disasters like this from happening.

   MeiDei  Mine is still in box, never used - 35+ years - time to donate it.

   FlatCityGirl  You might want to hold up on that until Antiques Roadshow is next in your area . . .

   StormCnter  Those things terrify me. I had a really nice one my mother gave me the first year I was married. I never used the pressure part, but that heavy pan produced wonderful fudge.

   Balogreene  My sister likes the new electric ones, they pressure up, and down, on a timer.
