As the title says I have recently (a little over 2 months ago) started cooking on the regular and I absolutely love it. My mother has always been an excellent cook and she taught me how to make a lot of the recipes I grew up with. I also make recipes from cookbooks and various cooking blogs etc. I tend to use regular pots and pans and a pressure cooker for most of my meals. They are usually very tasty and quick but I am wondering if I should get a crockpot or an instant pot. They seem like they would be useful. What are the benefits of cooking in them vs. cooking on the stove? Also, if I get an instant pot does that mean that I shouldn't get a crockpot since the slow cooker will already be a part of the instant pot?
