Do you think it's better to get an Instant Pot (pressure cooker) or an Air Fryer? Both are between $50-100. Thoughts?

Without additional information (e.g , for whom, to cook what, etc.) I'd lean to the Pressure Cooker.

Definitely an Instant Pot.

I use an old fashioned stovetop pressure cooker (I have four) but it uses the same principles.

I cook three meals per day, from scratch, and use a pressure cooker for nearly every one.

It's the most efficient way to cook, it's fast, and you can potentially keep more vitamins and other nutrients in the food.

You can make practically anything in a pressure cooker. I even make homemade cheesecake in my big one.

I don't have a pressure cooker big enough to hold Alaska. ;)

I know very little about cooking, but this is way down my list of things one might be able to do with a pressure cooker. I'd like to see that. Better yet, I'd like a slice, please.

My wife, who knows a lot about cooking, likes her Instant-Pot very much. I like eating things she cooks in the Instant-Pot

Well, if you're in the market for an Instant Pot and have not used Google Express yet, here's your chance.

I am impressed by how fast it cooks brown rice! Plus, it tastes better too.

Also, cooking with heat and pressure's gotta make food safer too.
