The Best Pressure Cooker

October 02, 2017

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.

In my opinion, having used both this and a stovetop pressure cooker, an electric option like this is the best option because it provides multiple other useful function and is generally much easier to bring up to pressure and depressurize quickly.
