Recently I taught a class on pressure cooking and the people who attended said it was really helpful to ease their fear of pressure cooking.

I have lots of my friends, family, and readers who have asked Santa to put a Cuisinart Pressure Cooker under their tree this Christmas. Since I can’t be there in person to help everyone get started using their pressure cooker, I made this video tutorial, sharing the basics of using an electric Cuisinart Pressure Cooker.
