Welcome to the Quilting Board!
I thank everybody for their response to my question and will wait for good price on an Instant Pot.
I do believe the stove top pressure cooker is faster than the electric ones.
For example, I put a roast in and it took almost 2 hours before it was tender. The book said something like 25 minutes. I took it out and it was still bloody inside. For a pot roast!
I could do that in my stovetop pressure cooker in 30 minutes or so.
Modern pressure cookers are so foolproof, they are very safe and yes, you do have to adjust the burner to keep the jiggle at the right tempo, but there isn't much to that.
One thing I've found that the Instant Pot is great at is, of all things, risotto. No more stirring for 30 minutes. I was impressed. And I'm a chef!
I think the Instant Pot definitely has its place but the stove top pressure cooker can still be useful, too.
I made this last night. It was the second time I've made it. Came out perfect both times.
I don't care for slow cook mode in the Instant Pot.It doesn't heat all around the container,just from the bottom.Not sure if that is the difference,but don't see many posts using slow cook mode.
What is the difference between this one: http://instantpot.com/
this one? (I have this one): https://www.cuisinart.com/products/s...ances/cpc-600/
Mine sautes, has a slow cooking mode (simmer) and is programmable. I wouldn't leave raw meat in mine for hours when using the programmable timer. Seems very dangerous and invites germs and other icky things to the table.
I usually use my pressure cooker for spaghetti sauce and making my own stocks for soup bases.

I love the stainless steel liner feature. And yes, it is very easy to clean. Much lighter then a 'crock'.
