Tips, tricks, and tidbits of their curious history…

  1. It’s such a great issue if I do say so myself! Ale your Pots & Pans series is AMAZING! As always I learn SO much from you! Thanks for contributing!

  2. And featured on the cover, too. Congrats! Actually, I love cooking with pressure, it’s such a time-saver! It’s too bad that pressure cookers seem to have gone out of fashion. They have an unfair reputation as unsafe, although I have to say that “contraption” from the 18th century sure is scary looking…

  3. I loved this article – I love the history you always include in your articles!

  4. I always enjoy your articles in the Joy Of Kosher Magazine, I always learn so much!
