Pressure Cooker

Pressure cookers have long been staples in South and East Asian kitchens- by cooking at a higher pressure you can reduce cooking time on recipes that normally take a long time– beans and tough meats are both great candidates for pressure cooking.

I’ve used both electric versions and stovetop versions and they’re both great. I ultimately recommend the Instant Pot, which is good for both Slow Cooker and Pressure Cooker recipes, because it is a great space saver.
