    Hi,

    I am a restaurant manager of newly opening soon restaurant in Malaysia. I need some advise on cooking bone soup for 50 person.
    By using the pressure cooker, at home I usually pressure cook mutton bone soup for 5 to 7 person and it takes around 30 minutes
    to cook, if cook normal, than it takes around 2 to 3 hours. Therefore, we plan to cook the bone soup in the restaurant with
    pressure cooker and will highly appreciate if somebody can advise me, what kind of commercial pressure cooker is available in
    the market to cook for large quantities like 30 to 50 persons.

    Thank you,

    Asgar

    For stove top use look for a pressure canner - they typically are much larger (starting  at 23 qts) and they also come with a dial gauge and tend to be more robust.

    They won't break the bank.  For what it's worth i'd go with a larger All American one 41 quarts ~ $600.

    Check with your local regulations - some crazy places won't allow there use as they are 'non-commercial' items.
