Can you smell the food cooking in the InstaPot or Pressure Cooker? If you can't, then I'm out.

With my food, that may be a plus.  It's bad enough I have to eat it.

Walking into the house and getting hit with the aroma of a pot of beans or stock on the stove is awesome.

Can certainly smell cooking from a crockpot. Mine, anyway. I leave it on overnight and the smell is everywhere by the morning, which I like, can’t speak for everyone.

Wait Mitchell, you leave your stovetop going when you’re out?

To me, that’s the great advantage of the crockpot.

I do.... Why couldn't you have an electrical fire with the crockpot?

Electrical fires seem less scary than gas fires.

I think the fear (ok, my fear) with leaving the stovetop on when no one is home is that the flame will go out, but the gas will still be on.  Then it doesn't take much to blow the whole place to smithereens.

It's kind of amazing that gas stoves are still not designed to shut off after the flame has been out for more than a minute.

Right?

 

As mentioned in another thread, the gas main apocalypse is real and upon us.  A year or two ago, one of our (4) buildings had a gas leak coming in off the main from the street.  It took months and months before they allowed the gas to be turned on again; even after the leak was "fixed," they had to check every one of the 400+ apartments.  Of course, some of the apartments still had their original stoves, which are classic but evidently not up to code. They had to be replaced.

 

And I'm sure we all know someone's horror story. about trying to open up a restaurant, and the gas causing delay after delay after delay. I've got one right up the block.

so, the end of the story with the instapot is, it's going back to the store, or amazon, or wherever the hell it came from.. I don't know, i am slow food guy..  I make plenty of beans and stock and rice and never really had a complaint before..  Looks like I am going to have to make my pig ears the old fashioned way. 


Ason, I keep planets in orbit.
