Rated 2 out of 5 Disappointing I was very disappointed in this cookbook. It contains the "usual" recipes with nothing different or innovative. I am on a low sodium diet and there is nothing much in the recipes I can eat. 08-31-15
Rated 3 out of 5 by Eh Nice recipe book- I purchased this along with the Cooks Essentials 4 qt pressure cooker. Being that I have never used a pressure cooker I figured this would get me started. These recipes are for using the 6 qt -of course I would need to adapt the amounts in the recipes but who really wants to do that...I would have returned it but just felt lazy..I might use maybe 2 of the recipes. 08-31-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Delicious Teriyaki Sauce Be sure to try the Teriyaki Sauce on page 78 of the cookbook. I used the sauce in my pressure cooker with an extremely tough cut of beef I happened to have on hand. The result was a reasonably tender and very tasty beef teriyaki dinner. 08-27-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by 5 Star! This book is so good! Love the Gumbo. The recipes are easy and so delicious. 08-19-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Very good cookbook! I love cookbooks. I bought the cookbook to go along with my new pressure cooker. My Dad had the smaller version of this pressure cooker and so I thought I would get one. Well he passed away and left no recipe for the BBQ ribs that he was proud of making in his Cooks Essentials pressure cooker. I can't wait to try this recipe and many others I see from this beautifully illustrated cookbook. I'm also a baker and I will try the cheesecake which is also in the book. Thank you QVC! 07-15-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Success! Thank you, Blue Jean Chef! I bought this book before I ever bought a pressure cooker. It helped me know what features were most important to me. Also, after finally getting a pressure cooker, I just made my first recipe from this book -- the Spanish Rice. It was a great success and the rice was cooked perfectly. Looking forward to cooking my way through the book! 07-09-15
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not for me This is a good book if you cook with wine and more expensive type of food. I don't, I'm a more everyday simple cook. Has good tips for pressure cooking if you are new to pressure cooking. 07-06-15
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great purchase My husband loves using the pressure cooker. When we saw this book on QVC he wanted it as all the food looked delicious. Well we got the cookbook yesterday and tried two recipes today and they were wonderful! The purchase was good and we have already marked several pages to try next. 06-30-15
Rated 2 out of 5 by Not for 4QT cooker.Converting recipes is necessary I am giving the following neg/review for reason below. Received my cookbook with anticipated excitement...only to be disappointed to read the following "About this book" remark "I recommend not using anything smaller than a 5-quart cooker UNLESS you convert the recipes for smaller quantities ( See converting tips page 15.....its actually page 17...) This was not stressed on the live show....just the pumping up of the cookbook. I'm disappointed.......I would not have purchased if this one fact was clear. Yes, I CAN return it. I would not recommend this cookbook for a 4QT cooker. 06-30-15
Rated 1 out of 5 Not a fan I was disappointed in this cookbook overall. I was looking for something different I guess. 06-13-15
Rated 3 out of 5 by is ok. I expected more new, cooking ideas. But over all the book is good, especially for the new generations. 06-11-15
Rated 1 out of 5 by not for the normal meal planning The Blue Jean Chef is a great chef but found only a few recipes that I may want to make. 06-10-15
