From comments made, Nicko, I got the impression that because it was his "new, digital" pressure cooker then, by Gawd!, he was going to use it no matter what.
Seems to me that anyone who, for whatever reason, recklessly endangers not only himself but others, should automatically have been kicked off the show.
I'm sure the producers, however, were disappointed that nobody got hurt, cuz, after all, that would have made better television.
>I almost wondered if he had much experience with a pressure cooker. <
Certainly have to agree with you there. My feeling is that he's been watching the celebrity chefs, who seemed to have discovered pressure cooking the past year or two, and he just jumped on the bandwagon with no real understanding about how they worked.
