Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven review

on Sunday, May 18th, 2014
Posted in: Home, Kitchen, Reviews

I am not a cook, chef, or even a glorified food preparer.  In fact, I view cooking as nothing more than a DIY project with heat and chemistry.  I’d like to also point out that I failed chemistry numerous times in school.  Along comes the Wolfgang Puck Pressure Oven.  Pressure oven?  OK, you have myRead More…
