We have at home one of these and it's very practical for some meals that need more time to be cooked. We have the traditional ones but for certain meals, we use the pressure cookware and makes everything easier.

Pressure cooker!

Yeah! We often use a pressure cooker at home when we're doing a heavy cooking or needs to soften a meat quickly. It's much faster also to cook the meat than the traditional cookware.

better flavor

I like using my cast iron, dutch ovens, and stock pots to cook with. I feel I can develop better flavor using these types of cookware. I have a pressure cooker in the form of an "instant pot." It is nice to be able to cook things quickly, but I'm never thrilled with the flavor of the food from my pressure cooker. I prefer to slow cook things in my dutch oven as I feel the flavor becomes more intense and delicious this way.

Better

I just find traditional cookware a lot better than pressure cookware, to be honest with you. The problem with pressure cookers is that you cannot add ingredients which is not the perfect situation for a lot of food. It's always good to add things whilst you are cooking as it can mean your food is tastier and it's also helpful if you forget to add something.

I prefer traditional

I would rather use traditional cookware then use Pressure cookware. It is much more cost efficient and it is dependable. It has been used for years and it is far more popular among consumers. You will get way more use of out it. I have heard of Pressure Cookware exploding and it can cause a lot of damage and injury. It just isn't worth it to me.

The best

I have previously tried using the pressure cookware but it just wasn't for me. I feel like I have higher control over food in the traditional cookware. Perhaps it's because I am used to it, no idea.

We have been using this type of cookware for as long as I can remember. It's really easy to use and once you get used to it, nothing can replace it.

A reason it's been used for centuries.

Although cooking with pressure cookers may be a more convenient cooking method, I don't think it can compete with traditional cookware. There is a reason why it has become traditional, because it is the most versatile and effective means of cooking.

I honestly couldn't imagine living in a world where I cook with nothing but a pressure cooker. There are so many recipes that require you to cook in a skillet, or in a wok, or a pan, or a tray. I think if you only cook with pressure cookers, you're limiting yourself.

Traditional - easier to clean !

A hard decision - especially as I like and use both - however much as I like my pressure cooker when cooking large quantities of food - particularly as its not just a whole lot quicker - but a way more cost effective means of preparing food and of course a much healthier one too - as this method of cooking retains more nutrients than when cooked the traditional way.

For everyday use I much prefer to use traditional cookware - as not only can you match the size of the pan to the quantity of food you want to cook - but more importantly - its way, way easier to clean once you've finished cooking.

Traditional

Traditional cookware has been used for decades and it's much better. It is not as expensive as the pressure pots, and it's also much safer and efficient. I really don't like these new types of cookware, I've heard of a lot of incidents in regards to them so I think we're better off sticking with traditional ones.

Cast Iron For Life

A cast-iron skillet may seem like an old-fashioned cookware choice. But this dependable object is a must in the modern kitchen. A cast iron skillet that is well-seasoned becomes non-stick, inexpensive, and can provide even heat distribution which makes cooking efficient.

Safer

I watched a lot of exploding pressure cookers in Youtube. It was so scary. It might make the cooking time lesser but it is very dangerous. I rather use traditional cookware that might take some time than to use pressure cookers.

It is difficult for me to choose here as I use both. I know that it is healthier to use the pressure cooker as you can cook your meals more quickly and therefore it helps in preserving the nutrients. However it is not suitable to use the pressure cooker to cook everything. Some dishes can be more easily prepared using the traditional cookware.

You are right. You have to know which food you should cook in the pressure cooker. There was a time that I cooked chicken in the pressure cooker and you can guess what happened to the chicken. Now I have learned that beef is the best to be cooked in a pressure cooker. With pork, there are parts that are hard which can be cooked in the pressure cooker but I don’t want to gamble otherwise I might end up with ground pork.

I know while growing up we only use the traditional pot and we so used to it, so even with the valuable ideas of using the pressure pot I still have some traditional pots in my house.Well, I think the pressure pot is better especially when it comes to dealing with our health.pressure pot aid in the retention of the nutrients and the flavor until the traditional pots which do otherwise.Well, will recommend pressure pot than traditional pots.

Traditional cooking has greatly been a part of my life. But since we are open to new technology for easier or safer reasons, I would still prefer the pressure cooker. There's nothing of an issue if we both use them. I do. I see traditional cooking still being practised at Masterchef TV series from one episode to the other. Being flexible on various ways of cooking is really cool. No need to choose just a single side of advantage.

I don't like pressure cookers. I think they are scary. I prefer traditional cookware because I understand them and can use them. I just don't know about pressure cookers. I don't think they are the best devices to use when you are getting the sort of choices you might need when you are cooking things. I just think that they are good devices for those who want to use them..but they can be dangerous as well.

I can't vote in only one option because I think before answering this, what should be taken into account is the type of food that will be cooked, after all... Both options cater for different kind of food / cooking.

Both the Pressure cookware and Traditional cookware are going to be or in fact is already in my kitchen utensils stock. Each one has a better meal to be cooked with, and this is why I prefer to have both of them in my kitchen utensil stock.

I hate pressure cookware and the their food, nothing like traditional cookware, I do use electric pressure cooker, but it's designed to mimic traditional ones.

My traditional cookware is made of iron and brass. It akes a lot of time to heat this cookware thus cooking takes time. If I had to make meat gravy, I will have to cook for at least 1 hour. However, if I use a pressure cooker, I can make meat gravy in 20 minutes. Therefore, I use pressure cookers.

I use both depending on what I want to do and how I want to do it. Traditional is a general overall and pressure if I'm doing something specific which I tend to do a lot so both see use frequently. Generally gotta be more careful with the pressure cooker but that's about it honestly.

I'm very afraid of pressure cookers even though I have never had one in my life. I just see them as being a bit intimidating and for someone like me who daydreams and drifts off a little too easily I don't think it would be very safe. I'm sure there are a lot more safer pressure cookers now that have automation and timers but I just don't want to risk it and I don't really feel like I need to hurry in cooking anything all that much as if I'm really that much in a hurry to get something cooked I'd just buy takeout anyway.

I had just used the pressure cooker today for our special beef dish that we call pochero. It is actually a mix of beef and pork cooked in tomato sauce. The beef is tenderized by the pressure cooker for 5 minutes of boiling while using a traditional pot, it takes 2 hours. That’s a big difference in time and effort so the pressure cooker is very convenient in the kitchen. However, you have to know the duration of the cooking otherwise you will ruin the meat.

I think the use of the pressure cooker is very practical and agile.

However, the longer in the pan, more substances are lost - in the case of beets, for example, the pressure cooker is better because it requires less preparation time, about 7 to 12 minutes.
