Kitchen- pressure cooker?

buzzards,
My husband and I are thinking of improving our kitchen. My hubby is a fabulous cook! He has suggested that a pressure cooker should be in our camp kitchen. It makes sense to me, as they use less fuel, cook food faster, and would make it so you could quickly cook dried beans instead bringing cans (less weight, less space, less trash). Of course, the pressure cooker could also be used as a regular pot (which we are shy on). Is anyone else using a pressure cooker on the river? Any other surprises in your kitchen box?

Yes, there are surprises in my kitchen box. But they are classified and if I told you (or your husband) you would have to get top security clearance...or I'd have to kill you

Don't know about a pressure cooker.
I do carry two large stainless steel bowls that could be used for making dough. Mostly I use them as food covers from flies.
I have one of those mini tents thats used to cover food, but they blow away or are high maintenance.

Those bowls are over the top but work. Kinda like your pressure cooker idea.

See Dan, I was going to suggest that anyone who wants to verify my hubby's kitchen qualifications should invite us on their permits!

Cody,
I saw that, but at $70+ for a 5.8 liter, it is only a pound lighter than a regular aluminum one for $25. So I am having a hard time justifying the GSI. Maybe it is safer because of the multiple safety valves?

I was planning on modifying a pressure cooker to make a steam generator for a river sauna. I guess cooking with it is an option too.

This is a nice hint on one of their evaluations:

.... I'd pack it with frozen stew meat and veggies for "first night out meals" that knocked 'em.

Put it in your thaw day cooler and have dinner that much quicker for one meal.
With a lid that seals ........... no sweat.
