Who wants to know

what happens when your pressure cooker explodes?

Q: What does happen when your pressure cooker explodes?

A: Well first there is an ear-splitting hiss which is followed by a thumpish depth-chargy sort of a pop.

Q: Wouldn't it be dangerous if, say, you were chopping something up with a very sharp knife when that happened?

A: Why, yes. In fact you could potentially cut your entire thumb off if you aren't careful.

Q: Does the smoke detector go off?

A: No, the huge cloud of steam that envelops your kitchen consists of mostly vaporized water.

Q: So, how much of the cooking liquid sprays itself onto every exposed surface in your kitchen?

A: All seven cups of it!

Awww, nobody was hurt. Well, I cut my finger. And it hurt my feelings to have to clean it all up. But really it was my fault because this plastic piece fell off of it a while back and I never should have used it after that. So don't be scared - pressure cookers RULE!
