We had one given to us as a wedding present.I use it mainly in the winter, but am about to get it out to cook some artichokes from the garden. They take about an hour to boil, but in pressure cooker, its only about 20 mins.
Our model is pretty old, but keep your eyes peeled for them in the summer sales. Suggest a stainless steel one rather than aluminium. Its heavier, but I can never quite shake the aluminium connection with Altzheimers....
Alternatively, my DM has one of the Lakeland ones.
Yes - I've had one for years, and then had to buy a new one for my new induction hob- its a Prestige stainless steel one. I make a lot of soup, so use it for making stock. Also for par cooking stew to get them tender, then in the oven to finish browning - saves hours and electricity And I steam my Christmas puddings in it as well
