In Reply to: does it take an hour to cook in a pressure cooker? nt posted by aubergine on February 10, 2004 at 6:50 am:

Some of the electric pcs have delay buttons, where you can put everything into the pc and then set the pc to start cooking after 30, 60, 90, or 120 minutes.

I'll often use this method for soups. At like 3:30/4-ish, I'll brown the onion, then shut the pc off and add the celery, carrots, (pre-soaked) beans, poatoes, veg boullion (salt-free so the beans get soft), & dried herbs and spices. Then, I'll set the pc to cook at high pressure for however many minutes the longest ingredient (usually the beans) will take and I'll set the delay for an hour or two. The next time I have to think about dinner is a few hours later, when the pc beeps that it's done. After it's all cooked, I add chopped greens, cover it and let the residual heat wilt the greens.
