bowl storage

I saw these at the Florida State Rally and have been considering adding these bowls. They go completely flat and you can store them as if they were lids even in that door holder tupperware makes. Not only do they go flat for storage but you need only expand them to the size you would like. I think they were listed as one of the top 100 products of the year last year. I often use ziplocks but occassionally a bowl would be better.

gen disarray and others

like norbert i have a only alum presto that still gets used at home...i opted for a new stainless presto for the trailer.....it's basically unchanged, includes a booklet of tasty dishes, and basic time guides for cooking. some dishes are stirred before cooking (chili) and other ingredients can be cooked at the same time but separate (meat, spud, cob) on top of a liquid layer...

cooking time can be 3 to 5 times shorter than 'roasting' oven times or for boiled times....also can be used to steam veggies or meats....so i think it is ideal for boondocking and conserving lp gas. shorter cook times, moisture is retained and more bang for the btu.

basically the pot is heated just till the pressure cap wiggles, then turned down to keep the wiggle...so there is no pressures 'setting'....the old models had a cap that adjusted pressures but they no longer come with that cap.

borrow one or find a granny who is willing part.....or visit a retro shop or garage sale....

hey norbert.............my jelly glass collection is way to delicate and valuable for trailer use!!

cheers

That is a really cool looking cooker. I am wondering if anyone had noticed any differences in cooking in newer stainless steel rather than the old (and yes I had an avocado colored one and it was NEW then LOL) aluminum version? I bought a nice ss one with the clad bottom, but perhaps it was the size (too big for us) and now I seem to burn and stick and thought I should go back to aluminum. I may not need to add here that I am not a whiz in the kitchen. (And that is even before I've hit the box wine.)

I also bought an Aircore pan thinking it would be just right for the travel days. Bring it up to temperature at home on the stove in the morning then put it in a caddy or towel in the sink for travel and when we would arrive--voila hot meal! But I didn't realize just how BIG and heavy those double walled pans were. Nice idea though, I thought.

I checked out the REI website on those polycarbon (whatever) wine glasses. Pretty neat, the bottom unscrews and snaps into the mouth of the glass for SAFE storage/travel. $4.95 each.

Happy New Year Everyone !

Your list made me smile and remember the old electric hotdoggers. Electricuted each dog on a metal skewer in 60-90 seconds. It was one of my wedding shower gifts. LOL OK that predates microwaves youngsters.

wow norbert that one is cool. i went for the basic 6 quart model, but now i might wanna trade up.

ya know, all seriousness aside, the presto pc has a lot in common with airstreams......
aluminum.......
comes in different sizes.....
moisture builds up on the inside......
parts still available.......
lots of old ones are still used,
in fact 65% are still in use (ok i made that up)
many are available on ebay.......check it out really
the new ones don't need walbernized!

one difference, the ppc comes with a better warranty.

and if you think they aren't cool or modern check it out........the ccd version........
http://www.treehugger.com/files/2004...u_think_of.php

i just love treehugger.com!

and if you are wondering why norbert and i have such fond memories of them.......

hi norbert, disarray and others.....

well the porcupine meatballs recipe is still there.....and now includes
black pepper and tomato juice instead of soup....using UNcooked rice it took 10 minutes to cook, 5 to cool and ready to eat.....it was tasty!!

also today cooked 4.5lb turkey breast with seasoning and winter veggies....40 minutes total time.....and the turkey is actualy moist! normal oven 2.5 hours.

just now made steel cut irish oats...1 cup oats/2 cups water in bowl inside the cooker with a water bath (this is how custards, cakes and grains are cooked) cooked 8 minutes/cooled 5......now they are ready for breakfast tomorrow. normally steel cut oats take 40-50 minutes at a boil.

i've read that the cooker can reduce fuel used by 70%....not bad

gen disarray.....the steam lid creates 15psi.
internal temps are approx 250 f with the pressure.

hey perhaps we need a thread just for recipes and favorite foods when airstreamin'??

cheers
