The 8 quart Mirro pressure cooker is a stove top economy speed cooker. Not only does it reduce cooking times by up to 70%, it also uses steam and the high heat pressure to extract only the best nutrients out of food.
How do you know what size pressure cooker to use? So I had the same question but soon discovered that it was better to have a set of pressure cookers versus just one size. In part my mirro pressure cooker set you’ll find a 4 qt, 6 qt, 16 qt, and 22 qt pressure cookers. The bigger sizes are often called pressure canners because you can put your mason jars directly into the pressure cooker. This is a really great feature to have on the 22 quart pressure cooker.
When shopping for the best bargains, we found that Amazon had the best price which was perfect because they’re credible and we’ve shopped there in the past with a great experience.
