Your Kitchen - Pressure Cooker vs Slow Cooker

Battle Royale

Tired of the old-fashioned cooking methods? If you want to try something new in the kitchen, why not go for either a pressure or a slow cooker. But you can’t invest in both, right? Though many homemakers prefer buying both for versatile cooking, you don’t always have that option.

If you love home-cooked meals, what you need is a smart, efficient, and highly-effective cooking appliance. Only a cooker will match up to your cooking skills, so why not consider something that encourages “hands-off” cooking?

Here's a Green Hack Even I Was Able to Do

I must admit…I have something of a brown thumb. I keep trying to grow things in my yard, in planters and pots, indoors, outdoors — and every time I get a new plant I can almost hear it scream as it is ushered into its last days. They don’t do anything wrong, these poor little verdant victims, I just don’t have a whole lot of success in the growing department.
