I am still using my mother's Presto brand pressure cooker from 1960.  Just made chicken soup in it last week.

I use mine 3-4 times per week and actually have two, 6-qt. units!  Made chili mac in it last night and cooked chicken breasts for the pups in it yesterday afternoon.

I have an Instant Pot.  Still haven't used it, I'm ashamed to say.  It's been almost a year.

I have two Instant Pots (larger size and mini) and use them regularly. My first purchase of an electric PC was a Cuisinart and I rarely used it. It just wasn't user friendly like my Instant Pot.

I have three and all are used regularly.

The more I learn the more I realize how little I know.
Are you setting an example or being an example?

I bought one from QVC YEARS ago and never used it.  It's sitting on a shelf in a closet. Woman Sad  However, my parents used one all the time.  My mother cooked potatoes in it (for mashed potatoes).  They were just "ok."  When my husband and I started dating (I was 19), I tasted his mother's mashed potatoes and, WOW, were they delicious!!!  She boiled them and just used a potato masher on them, with milk and butter, of course.  What a difference!  Since then, I always made them like my mother-in-law did and we love them!

 

Sorry, Mom... you were the BEST, but your mashed potatoes... not so much!  Woman Wink

I love my Instant Pot. I just made some cabbage and potatoes in it.

I still have my own stove-top model from the '60s but love my 6qt electric models.  My mom always used a PC and it was the first thing I bought as a bride.  I think you have to get into the habit of using it.
