Q: I don’t own a slow cooker and don’t want to purchase another kitchen gadget. I do have a pressure cooker, though, and use it often. I’ve seen a lot of really great recipes for slow cookers and am wondering if there’s a good, or formulaic, way to make a conversion from slow cooker to pressure cooker.

Editor: Slow cookers are a handy tool, but pressure cookers might actually be even better. Eva Katz thinks so, too.

They are, however, a little less straightforward when adapting recipes from one appliance to another. The best guide, we’ve found, is the handbook of basic guidelines and recipes that comes with your specific pressure cooker.

Readers, do you have any tips for Rachel on converting recipes from slow cooker to pressure cooker?
