Question Electric pressure cooker?

Sweet Bonny's crockpot gave up the ghost and now she's thinking maybe an electric pressure cooker... Do any of you have any experience with these? Good brands? Brands to avoid? Any and all info is deply appreciated. We don't have TV but apparently there are lots of ads for these things. I know absolutely nothing about them.
TIA

Cooking with a crock pot vs a pressure cooker are at opposite ends of the cooking spectrum. Crock pots cook slow with relatively low temperature. Pressure cookers cook fast due to higher temp AND pressure. Pressure cookers can be good for items that take longer to cook such as potatoes (to make mashed potatoes). Never used an electric one, just stove top cooker.

not sure about those plug in the wall pressure cookers, they seem to have to many buttons and lights. i do love my conventional pc tho, especially this time of year when it can be to warm to run a stove or crock pot for extended periods of time.
fall off the bone ribs from fridge to pc to bbq to plate in under an hour. there is alot of trial and error and note keeping tho as things can go very wrong with certain foods in a matter of minutes.

Joe, I think they can be used both ways, slow cook "crock" style and sealed up pressure style. My mom is a QVC aficionado and they have one of the counter top pressure cookers. They also have nearly everything that has ever been on "special" in the last ten years Cool thing I usually get the ones that are too big, too hard to use or they have no place to put it. We haven't bought a coffee maker since we got married. Mom sees the newest coolest one and we get the old oneI'm going there tonight to make sure the boat is up high enough on the lift (supposed to get some strong storms tonight) I'll check it out and give you a report

We got a small one from the MIL . Nice points are : removable cook pot is non- stick , Brown setting is hot enough to actually brown meat , high and low pressure settings each start the timer when pressure is reached , steam setting is right around 212F so also works as a simmer setting when needed , keep warm setting is ( IIRC ) around 160 + A safe temp for keeping cooked food warm and could kinda work as a crock pot.
Down sides is just learning the touch controls and temps . Be all and end all ? Nope , but useful for what it is.
Be worth looking @ online reviews and recommendations to see what is out there and compare to what you actually want to use it for .
