Why not just a pressure cooker for all liquid base cooking?

Chemicalkinetics | Sep 23, 2012 12:25 AM

Thanks to fellow Chowhounders suggestions and encouragements, I have bought a Fagor pressure cooker, and have been using it for pressure cooking, as a regular pot for atmosphere pressure cooking, as a steam pot for my bamboo steamers...etc

My question is that if a pressure cooker can be operated in regular atmosphere pressure and at high pressure, then why not just get the pressure cooker since it can do both -- granted that a pressure cooker is usually more expensive than most regular pots, and that the disc clad is adequate but not extraordinary. Are these the only reasons preventing everyone getting pressure cookers? Thanks for sharing your opinions.
