Growing up my mom used a pressure cooker for a number of things including cooking beans and roasts. When I asked some of my friends if their moms used pressure cookers when they were growing up at home, they responded yes. They were all stove top models, heavy to lift and didn't have the fancy extras that today's models have including timers.
The other advantage of this new gadget is that the slow cooker is a smaller one than the one I have. The stand alone slow cooker that I have is in some ways too big for most meals. I am looking forward to trying out new recipes for fast and slow cooking.
