Letter: Find me a faster toxin killer

Click to follow
ALTHOUGH the consignment of the pressure cooker to the great kitchen in the sky is probably long overdue, Antony Woodward ignores one of their important uses (Design Dinosaurs, Review, 12 June).

Fiddly and cumbersome they may be, but they are a godsend to vegetarians who cook beans a lot. Why spend two hours boiling kidney beans to get rid of their toxins when 20 minutes in the pressure cooker would suffice?

Cynics might suggest buying cans but paying quadruple price for a relatively simple task seems pointless. By all means banish the wretched things but first find me a new method of cooking my beans.
