This is the one I saw on this site. They have awesome recipes too.

I guess its a set starting at 199-239 and they are from Germany-great quality. Just want a 4 quart though.

Thats a great price for yours. I'll have to check around and see if I can find one like that.
Thanks for the info.

I both want & am intimidated by pressure cookers.

Last night I made a creamy dish with fresh limas (omg, so good! I'd never had them before) and field roast sausages, over rice pilaf. plus a salad with basil dressing from ED&BV (my daughter's fave dressing!).

I was totally freaked the first 10 times I used mine! But it's really fine. And it's so worth it! I look at it as an environmentally friendly choice, too, since you're only using your stove for a fraction of the time to cook the same food. Not to mention it doesn't heat up your kitchen for as long, so great for the summer!

How do you make the basil dressing? I have some fresh basil in the refrigerator. Plus, I have field roast sausages but DS thinks their too spicy.

I love lentils as well I had them finally this last winter in lentil soup. I was like where were you all my life. I loooove it and i will have to try the tacos sometime. I would recommend getting a pressure cooker.

Tonight I am making chicken picatta w/gardein patties. The recipe is from Conscious Cook. Also an heirloom tomato salad from the same book.
