You want a delicious dinner when you get home from working all day, slaving over a hot desk (or insert whatever you slave over here). You pick up the kids at daycare and wish you had some miracle waiting for you in the kitchen.
For a lot of people, a crock pot (or slow cooker as there are many brands or these now even though Crock Pot is the standard…) is the miracle that will guarantee that they will eat a hot, healthy, delicious meal when they get home.
But that means being prepared ahead of time. So you get up an hour earlier and toss all the ingredients into the slow cooker and set the timer so that it will cook all day and then drop to keep warm temperature so that you don’t come home to a mass of baked on mess in the bottom of the crock…
If you are anything like me, my mornings were timed to the millisecond as I raced to make it out of the house. If anything changed in my routine, I would end up late for work. You know what I mean, right? You know that if that old brown and rust pickup truck is in front of you when you reach the interstate, you are screwed… because he works a later shift.
Anyway, I never have time to plan a meal in the morning, let alone throw the ingredients into a crock and plug it in. I found that whenever I tried this, something always went wrong. Once, I got home to find everything still raw in the pot, I had forgotten to hit the start button. Another time, I had forgotten the meat, just the veggies were in there – cooked to perfection. Being rushed is not a good way to cook a meal.
So the people who invented the Power Pressure Cooker XL are lifesavers! My mom loved using a pressure cooker. She could make almost anything in 15 minutes or less with that thing. The longest part of the process was getting the thing to boiling (we learned to not watch it, as mom would say, “a watched pot never boils” and it was true).
But the innovation of a Power Pressure cooker is totally freaking genius! Think about it, you get home, pull the ingredients out of the strategic locations (you know where you keep your stuff) and you place them into the Power Pressure Cooker XL. Choose the setting for the food you are making and kablooey! Your food starts cooking. Depending on the dish you are preparing, you have time to change clothes or set the table and maybe pour that glass of Chardonnay you have been longing for all day before the timer goes off and your food is deliciously prepared to perfection!
My GOD! I wish they had these when I was doing the work to home, home to work grind…
