I was wondering if many of the Loungers either currently use or recall family or friends using a pressure cooker for preparing family meals. My mom & dad got one for a wedding present from my dad's aunt in 1950 and as a kid my mom made amny fine meals in that thing. It was big - bigger than most i have seen lately, rounded and had a seperate weight for over the steam nozzle port thingy. My mom would cook and the weight would dance making a great shoosha-shoosha noise. From pork chops with potatoes and kraut to some awesome pot roasts. That thing made some fine cooked meals. Smoked butt with winter veggies - top notch. Anyone else recall the pressure cooker?
