The story of a grandpa's
The adventurous and whimsical grandpa (or father of our owner)
Edwin Largen was an inspiring example of the joy found in plain
living. In Appalachia folk tale tradition, he was a storyteller.
He told his stories loud with enthusiastic entertainment and laughter.
He was a farmer and dedicated his life to growing crops and raising
food for his family. Most of the stories he told were about the
animals, people and important moments of his childhood. The setting
was here in the rural mountains where simple living was a way of
life. His uncle was so strong he could lift a 500lb hay bail on
his back. His brother Price was thrown into a tree by a heard of
He kept his land working so he always had something else to do.
He admired and taught us frugality and invention. He recycled everything.
The house, the shed, the fences and everything else were all created
using what he had. He loved simple living well before it became
a lifestyle choice. He believed and proved true that with a little
ingenuity a person could create a wonderful life from close to nothing.
His stories were filled with chickens, cattle, goats and horses,
inventors and visionaries, goofball ideas and technological miracles.
It is that heritage that Pressure Cooker Outlet uses as operational
guidelines. We promote those things that contribute to a simple
living while treating our customers with the respect and frankness
grandpa taught us to have with our neighbors.
Grandpa loved working out his theories by practicing their practicality
in the real world. That’s what we have been doing with Pressure
Cooker Outlet. Perhaps big companies with economies of scale for
efficiency (lacking actual customer service) will put us out of
