and if so any recommendations on brands?
you reading lifehacker?
slow cookers aren't complex/expensive devices, just go with whatever. pressure cookers, not sure.
I know they aren't complex, I am not asking how to use one. I am asking what brand is good.
my mom uses one but i think its from the motherland (pressure cooker)
Well in that case I recommend you shell out more for a brand name that is made exactly the same as the cheaper one and probably in the same factory. Go with an All-Clad.
Slow cooker and pressure cooker are two different things. I have a Rival slow cooker/crock pot. Haven't used it in a while. Got it from Walmart.
I have a rival slow cooker. You can cook a pork shoulder in that shit and have the best pulled pork ever.
just bought one, thanks
i pressure cooked some meat tonight, to make this cuban dish named vaca frita. Shits good bro
I just bought a presto 16qt pressure cooker like 2 weeks ago. I went for one with a pressure gauge since I dont trust the stupid jiggler thing and don't need that bitch to explode on my stove top. My grandmom's give me a whole mess of recipes. Havent had a chance to try anything yet though.
Slow cookers are the best, "just set it, and forget it!"
pressure cookers are pretty aces to make shitty meat tender. you can get a really lean roast and make it pretty tasty.
pressure cooker > crock pot, imo. BUt a pressure cooker requires much more attention, and a bit of knowledge to work. The crock is definitely easier.
throw a chuck or rump roast in a pressure cooker with a few onions, carrots, potatos and cook the living shit out of it
In a slow cooker, you literally can NOT fuck up your meal. And I'll second the comment about turning shitty meat into a masterpiece. Even shitty beef cuts turn out pretty fuckin good.
Which consequently means only about 20 minutes at 15psi
Can't wait to fire this bitch up. Diet needs to end NOW
