Pressure Cooker

    Im not the best cook in the world but I haven't poisoned anyone yet.

    I have a slow cooker and I was wondering what the difference between a slow cooker and a pressure cooker is?

    I would like to try and cook a stew/curry etc, would a pressure cooker be good at this?

    Pressure cooker cooks things fast and a slow cooker cooks things slowly. For the best of both consider getting an instant pot which can do both. You've just missed a great price on them on amazon but keep an eye on the bargain alerts forum on here. That's where I saw the offer and bought mine last month.

    Definitely go for an instantpot or similar electrical pressure cooker, FAR easier to use than a traditional one which needs more babysitting. The electric ones are more like a microwave with time settings etc.
