Experiments in Pressure Cookery


by Day Monroe, Mary I. Barber & Ruth Parrish — 1922

The pressure cooker is rapidly coming into favor with the progressive housewife in her effort to save time, labor, and money by replacing yesterday's equipment with more modern devices. In the year 1920, 2509 pressure and steam cookers were bought for the farm kitchens in thirty states of the North and West, according to Miss Florence E. Ward's report on “The Status and Results of Home Demonstration Work”; while during the same period 1661 fireless cookers were made at home and 310 purchased. These figures, however, do not show the actual number of cookers installed during that year because they do not include a record of cookers purchased by women living in larger towns and cities. In the same report it is estimated that 1,008,519 hours have been saved by the use of these and other household helps.
