    I buy a lot of cookbooks. (Strangely, I like to read them much more than I like to cook.) I am familiar with this author from her participation in Facebook pressure cooking groups, so I pre-ordered this book and received it (pre-publication) today. The Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook... has many more recipes that I would make for myself than most books I have for the two electric pressure cookers I own.

The Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook... has many more recipes that I would make for myself than most books I have for the two electric pressure cookers I own. A great mix, mostly American dishes, but some Asian that look very good and easy enough for me to try, and a sprinkle of Mexican recipes. Lots of classic recipes here. There are great desserts, too. Cheesecakes do very well in EPC machines, but there are many other desserts that do also. Everything has been well-tested and I can see from my own knowledge that the cooking times are accurate with what I would use. Her spaghetti/pasta cooking method is more logical than other ones I have seen, so I might try cooking the pasta with the sauce next time instead of separately. There are also handy tips or substitutions listed on the recipe pages. There are a fair amount of pictures, but not for every recipe. The Table of Contents in the front of the book lists the chapters, but it's not necessarily any help if you aren't sure what category the recipe you are seeking is under, necessitating a search in the back Index for that one. (I am thinking this is more a fault of the publisher than the author, but there you go.) I like that there are a few instructional pages about Electric Pressure Cookers in the front of the book, but not a boring amount. Over all, though, I very much enjoy this book think it will be useful for many Electric Pressure Cooker users.

I've been pressure cooking for at least 15 years, starting with a stove top model and then graduating to an electric pressure cooker. My electric PC pot was nonstick and it pretty much disintegrated from so much use. So, I bought an Instant Pot three years ago, love it! I have made several of Barbara's recipes, with total success-- I adapted her cheesecake recipe to make my own flavors, and LOVE her rice pudding recipe. When I buy a new cookbook I tend to skip past all the "info" in the beginning and flip right to recipes. This time, I read her section on the advantages of pressure cooking. Hallelujah! I already know a few friends I want to buy this book for, as a gift. They are "afraid" of pressure cooking or are hesitant to give up their slow cooker. I really liked her PRESSURE COOKING POINTERS and trouble-shooting guide. Her info is spot on, and will give me the answers to my friends who aren't convinced that pressure cooking is as amazing as I find it to be. As for the recipe section, I admit that I was a little sad there weren't photos for every recipe. However, that was short-lived, because there are a LOT of photos and they are all done in Barbara's professional style. I recognize a few of the recipes from her blog, but there are plenty of never-before-seen recipes . I honed in on the Asian Chicken Noodle Soup and it sounds amazing! I am so making that, this weekend! I use my Instant Pot a LOT-- at least 2-3 times a week. I'm always looking for new recipes and I'm testing out my own creations. If you're new to pressure cooking, this cookbook is user-friendly and very helpful. Even I learned a few new tricks. I have never met Barbara, personally but I feel as though she's part of my internet network of friends. I applaud the hard work she's put into writing this cookbook and it's a clear winner! I look forward to making many of her recipes with confidence and great results!

The Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook is a great resource for those people lucky enough to own an Instant Pot or other brand of electric pressure cooker. The author explains that the recipes can also be easily adapted for a stove top pressure cooker too. The recipes are easy to follow and include only ingredients most pantries will have on hand. The introduction includes a very nice discussion about how the appliance works. The best part, of course, are the recipes. Who can resist trying Triple Chocolate Cheesecake, Coq au Vin or Beef Stroganoff made quicker and easier within an Instant Pot? Or cooking dried beans for truly homemade Red Beans and Rice in only an hour? Yum! The recipes all sound delicious. Having the index organized by main ingredient (i.e., beef, chocolate, zucchini) makes it easy to see what options are available based on what the reader has on hand. Their are many vegetarian and gluten-free recipe options though there is no labeling of the recipes. The only drawbacks are there is no nutritional information provided and pictures are infrequent. I tried a few of the recipes (Corned Beef and Cabbage, Red Beans and Rice, Quick Turkey Chili) with excellent results. I highly recommend this cookbook for both experienced electric pressure cooker users and newbies like myself. Thanks to the publisher, Quarto Books-Harvard Common Books, and NetGalley for an advanced reader copy.

There's such a bewildering array of small (and large) kitchen appliances and gadgets available, it's often difficult or impossible to really know what is worth buying. I remember my grandmother's pressure cooker and the hissing scary noises it made. We never actually had any major mishaps when I was a kid, but everyone knew someone who had an explosive situation from a badly vented pressure cooker. That was then, this is now... With the safety and materials updates modern pressure cookers have undergone, the old fashioned pressure cookers are a thing of the past. Today's electric pressure cookers come in a bewildering array of finishes, some nonstick, with all kinds of bells and whistles. Some even double as slow cookers, rice cookers and yogurt makers. The Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook , by Barbara Schieving published by Harvard Common Press is a reassuring and encyclopedic look at the various pressure cooker options along with bells and whistles, as well as a cookbook with recipes which have been tested and adjusted specifically to pressure cooking. The book is set up very logically with a preface and introduction covering the theory of pressure cooking (why it does what it does), specific models, and a very good how-to section. The introduction covers roughly 10% of the page content. The following chapters are arranged by types of food: breakfasts, sandwiches/wraps/tacos, soups, shortcut dinners, 30 minute meals, Sunday suppers, sides, and desserts. There are over 200 recipes, certainly enough to keep most cooks busy and experimenting for ages. One of the things I really liked about this book was how many variations there were and how easily the recipes could be altered and mixed up for completely different presentations. I had no idea my pressure cooker was so versatile and had only cooked chicken and pot roast in it previously. When reviewing cookbooks, I try to test out at least 3 recipes. In this case, I tried the Maple-Almond-Raisin Breakfast Risotto (p. 42), which came out beautifully cooked and moist. My kids have begged for a reprise constantly since... it could definitely become a family favorite. We also tested the shredded chicken tacos (p. 49). They were fine, and this recipe is suitable for experimentation, barbecue, smoked flavor, etc. I have never used a pressure cooker for dessert/baking before... So I decided to try out the peanut butter cup cheesecake (p. 284). My pressure cooker needed a second 5 minute round of cooking in order to get the internal temp up to 150F in the center, but after that, everything went fine and the cheesecake was firm and smooth and delicious. I have plans to repeat the recipe for a work potluck dinner coming up soon. The recipes seem varied and well made. There are a lot of Asian American, southwest/tex-mex, Italian, and lots of 'American comfort food' dishes. Good solid family food. The food and recipes are photographed very well. It's not fussy or overdone. The recipe chapters are followed by acknowledgement and bio pages as well as a short index. Four and a half stars. I am absolutely sure my pressure cooker is going to get a lot more airplay from now on. Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher.

    THIS is the book that should be included with every electric pressure cooker when it is despatched to customers. Although I have been using my Tefal Cook4Me for nearly a year now, I never got to grips with the range of possibilities it offers or, indeed, how much easier it could be making my life, until reading Barbara Schieving's excellent book on this topic.

Not just a cookbook, but a real 'how to' manual. Having said this, it is also a really useful cookbook, with a wide range of recipes. I received a digital review copy from the publisher in exchange for an unbiased review and so sat down and went through the whole thing one recipe at a time. Although I have not yet had the chance to try them yet, I found myself bookmarking page after page to come back to and try. In some cases, it was because Barbara Schieving had shown me a far easier way of making one of our family favourites (e.g. Shepherd's pie) but more often than not it was because she had tempted me to try things I've not made before. There is a wide selection of Mexican dishes, and enough tempting chicken recipes here to keep us going all winter. In a few cases, these recipes do specify ingredients I have never seen in a UK supermarket, but I was always able to think of a quick substitution. In the main, everything here should be available to us. There were so many time-saving, hands-free things here it simply would never have occurred to me to try in my pressure cooker - hard-boiled eggs, fish en papillote. stacking pasta and a sauce in the machine to cook at the same time. Better still, pumpkin pie, cheesecakes, and brownies?! What's not to love? It was my husband who bought our pressure cooker, because he saw Heston Blumenthal using one on Australian Masterchef (no really...that's how it ended up in our house). Since then it has been sitting in a dark corner on the worktop and I have been using it to steam potatoes for mash now and then. But this book as shown me the way forward and I am *almost* looking forward to figuring out what to make for dinner tonight!

The author provides a solid grounding in electric pressure cookers and how to use them, and has a wide variety of recipes. It was hard to choose which I wanted to try. I ended up making Orange chicken and Korean Beef bowl. The chicken was easy and flavorful. I gave some to a friend and has commented multiple times that the chicken melted in his mouth.

The beef had amazing flavor, and I was eager to try cooking the rice in the same pot. The rice had great flavor as well, but didn't cook completely. Overall, it is a strong showing as the recipes were clear and complete, there are a lot of photos of finished dishes, and there should be plenty of ideas for every taste.

    I received this book, for free, in exchange for an honest review. All in all this an average book on pressure-cookery. The downsides: This book is neither healthy nor paleo. To be more explicit, the recipes use dairy, grains, unhealthy oils and sugars. The book also recommends store bought broth which is both less healthy and tasty and is a waste of a perfectly good pressure cooker (which can make amazing broth).

The upsides: First off, this book has lots of recipes including many for soups (I loves me some soups). Secondly, the recipes are well described and relatively easy to follow. All in all this is probably roughly as good as any other pressure cooker book, but nothing to write home about.

    Book reviews on www.snazzybooks.com I have sang my praise of my Instant Pot (pressure cooker) many times, but I do sometimes lack inspiration for recipes for the pot (and in general, to be honest). I'm all for trawling the internet for recipes, and there are of course some FANTASTIC recipes out there, but finding a great collection of pressure cooker recipes all together is great news.

I'm all for trawling the internet for recipes, and there are of course some FANTASTIC recipes out there, but finding a great collection of pressure cooker recipes all together is great news. Enter: The Electric Pressure Cooker Cookbook. Now, I am trying to eat mostly vegetarian due to my boyfriend being veggie (though he eats fish now and then), but I don't mind meaty recipes once in a while. This recipe book does seem to have mostly meat recipes, but they look great (that Braised Paprika Chicken is calling out to me for a day when I'm cooking just for myself)  and there are some brilliant-looking desserts (the Key Lime Pie and Vanilla Lover's Cheesecake look amazing, and I've tried the peanut butter cup cheesecake already and it. was. heaven!). Plus I've no doubt many of the recipes can be adapted to be meat-free with vegetables or quorn; you'll just have to guess at the cooking time which is the only issue. I am intending to make the Linguine and Clam sauce soon for a dinner party, for an easy but impressive pasta-based meal! This book is a great introduction to the world of pressure cooking, with a good mix of difficulties in terms of recipes. There are plenty of lovely photos to accompany the recipes and clear instructions which appealed to me - nothing worse than a recipe getting reaaaal confusing halfway through. There are also handy tips for a lot of recipes. Just beware that many of these recipes give quantities in ounces, cups etc, whereas us Brits generally prefer grams - shouldn't be too hard to convert cups to grams though! So, if you're looking for lots of great recipes, perhaps mainly catering for carnivores but still sounding delicious, look no further! Thanks to Harvard Common Press for providing a copy of this novel on which I chose to write an honest and unbiased review.

On the overly simplistic side, many didn't really need a cooker to be made. Chili dogs? I need a pressure cooker to heat up chili and hot dogs? Some required several different steps and functions on the cooker. Cook this, put it to the side. Cook that, put it to the side. Cook these things, add them all together. I suppose the theory is that you save dishes? But there were some that seemed perfect for the cooker and my family. Mini Creamy Lemon Pies? Yes please! Sausage Kale and White Bean Soup? Sure! But I will probably brown the sausage and onions outside the cooker and together. And Cherry-Orange Breakfast Quinoa sounds wonderful! But I really wish it had included some type of estimate for the total time to complete a recipe. As a newbie to this form of cooking, having no clue how long it is going to take my pot to come to pressure means I have to give myself a long lead time, which somewhat defeats the purpose of this type of cooking to begin with. That breakfast quinoa is obviously made in the morning. Time is tight. Making a warm breakfast would be great but not if I am late because I miss guessed the time needed!

I know that Instant Pots are very popular right now but this cookbook is geared at any electric pressure cooker, which is nice. Like most other cookbooks, each chapter is based on a type of food (soup, mains, etc...). What this book has that others I've seen do not is a whole section of using the pressure cooker to make prepared foods. For example, how to cook frozen Asian dumplings (gyoza) with a recipe for citrus dipping sauce, or cooking packaged tortellini, or spaghetti and meatball using prepared sauce. I would recommend this book for those looking for a good selection of recipes.

I usually only use about 10 percent of any cookbook, but this one is so good! I have loved everything so far!

    Exceptionally thorough Finally, a cookbook for those of us who are beginners at pressure cooking and love simpler foods with easily available ingredients! I have bookmarked a dozen recipes already for upcoming meal planning. The tips at the end of many recipes anticipated questions that I had as I read the recipe (Can I use frozen..., oh, yes, I can!). In short, this is the cookbook that ought to be included with every purchase of a multicooker like Instant Pot.

    I have been cooking in a stainless pressure cooker since 1970. I love it and reading these new recipes was fun. I didn't see enough new ideas to warrant buying it as this was a library book. I thought most of the recipes would be better in a skillet or wok. But if you are new to pressure cooking and buy the new electric one you might like this well organized cookbook. I don't think I will change what has worked for me all these years.

    Some absolutely delicious recipes here (Red Beans and Rice, take a bow). But also a whole lot that doesn't interest me: like Shortcut Dinners with processed food ingredients. And does the world really need a recipe for Kraft Mac & Cheese in a pressure cooker? This was an interesting book to check out from the library, but not a keeper.

    I made 3 of the recipes in the book. They all turned out great. I'm going to have to purchase my own copy.

    I got my first electric pressure cooker for Christmas and wanted to use it but wasn't sure where to start. I love all the information in the beginning, it really helped me learn about my pressure cooker. There's a good variety of recipes that use common ingredients which makes it even easier for someone like me to start cooking. I can't wait to try different recipes!

    I voluntarily read this advanced readers copy of this cookbook. I loved it and the recipes that it had. There were a lot of them that I could use and loved. I so can't wait to use them again.

    Every home cook needs a pressure cooker. It makes evening when you haven’t meal planned a breeze. Recipes were easy to follow and didn’t require weird ingredients.

    This book is chock full of a variety of delicious and easy recipes for the Instant Pot. There are good tips added to each recipe and a introduction to your Instant Pot at the beginning. This is a great choice for anyone wanting to make more use of a new appliance they are puzzled by at times. This book lost one star not for content but for organization.

For some recipes I have to remember which chapter it was placed in because I can’t even find it listed in the index. And the chapters are not even listed in a table of contents.

    I am reviewing this book for Barbara Schieving, Quarto Publishing, and NetGalley who gave me a copy of their book for an honest review. We’ve just started using our pressure cooker again so this came along at the perfect time. There are some gorgeous recipes in there which I can’t wait to try. In fact (I’ve just looked through the list of recipes again) and there are only a few which don’t appeal to me … take this as a huge complement as it’susually the complete opposite.
