For anyone on the fence about the electric pressure cooker, you know you want one and I’m going to share a recipe tonight and another one tomorrow that will make you wish you had a pressure cooker! Seriously, both of these recipes can easily be made in the oven but they’re so much easier in the pressure cooker.
I have both the Instant Pot and the Cuisinart and I love them both for different reasons. What I love most about the Cuisinart is what would probably cause me to go with the Instant Pot if I could only choose one. The Cuisinart is non-stick and I like it but can already see that even with care, the finish isn’t going to hold up forever. The Instant Pot has pre-programmed settings like beans, yogurt, etc. that I really like too. I’m 100% happy with both of them and am surprised at how often I have them both going at the same time so I’ve never been sorry I invested in two of them.
