Those who lead a busy life and often cook in a hurry will appreciate any time-saving kitchen hack.

The pressure cooker is the number one gadget for people who want to slice huge chunks off the cooking time of meat, pulses and sauces. From ribs that fall off the bone, to stew, casserole or braised meat, a pressure cooker can achieve great results in under an hour. Pasta and rice can be made from scratch in less than 10 minutes; thrifty cooks can tenderise flavoursome cheap cuts in just 20 minutes and pulses can be cooked without having to soak them. Speed isn't the only advantage of pressure cookers - they also preserve nutrients and vitamins, as well as being a more economical way to cook.

As a busy working mother, Guardian writer Catherine Phipps is wholly reliant on her pressure cooker to produce quick and easy one-pot meals for her family. Her authoritative guide is aimed at those who are new to pressure cookers as well as established fans. Alongside recipes ranging from pot-roast chicken and seafood risotto to Boston baked beans, pulled pork sandwiches and Scotch eggs, and even cheesecake and chocolate pots, Catherine offers handy tips on how to adapt conventional recipes for the pressure cooker, safety ideas and a guide to using certain ingredients.

With 150 delicious recipes and beautiful colour photography throughout the Pressure Cooker Cookbook will revolutionise your mealtimes.

This humdrum tool of grandmother’s thrifty cooking is resurrected with an amazing amount of glamour... Phipps shows that high-pressure cooking isn’t only quick and economic, but a tool to treasure flavour. - Nick Wyke, The Times

If pressure cooking speaks to you of grannies, boiled-to-death pulses and explosions, Phipps shows you you’re wrong. Recipes you’ll want to cook, yes; but her writing style – precision with an almost retro gentleness – will seduce you completely. - Tim Hayward, Financial Times

Phipps’s exceptional book shows that the pressure cooker has moved far beyond its spluttering, drab 1970s incarnation... It is worth buying for the risotto recipes alone: perfect risotto in five minutes, with no stirring (really). - Bee Wilson, The Sunday Times

The Pressure Cooker Cookbook by first time author Catherine Phipps has genuinely changed the way I cook for the better... This book is a recipe for sanity. If you don’t have a pressure cooker, all I can say is: get one! - Psychologies Magazine, Psychologies Magazine
