Lots of good choices for electronic pressure cooker.   Instant Pot has a steel bowl instead of a nonstick if that's an issue.


I bought mine at Costco, it was a cuisinart and was only about $70.00


Could I get a recommendation of a pressure cooker to buy please.

Thanks Jeannie and Charlene! This soup was quite amazing and fast. We're so glad you like the show. New episodes are in the making.


I actually went out and immediately bought the electric pressure cooker when I saw yours on the show. I am definately making this recipe next time I go to store to get all the ingredients. Been wanting a pressure cooker for a while and surprised that it was not that expensive. Found mine at Costco. Thanks for sharing your recipes with us.

Just caught the last part of this show. I'm not a vegan, but am trying to eat healthier and am going to give this one a try. I love making soups. Have to get myself an electric pressure cooker. You just got a new viewer.
