I knew that you could sear stuff in a pressure cooker; that was more browning than I expected from a crockpot.

Crockpots don't try to claim that. However they can be left unsupervised; pressure cookers can't claim that. You still need half an hour of cooking time somewhere in your day, so you don't "save more time than a crockpot" overall. You don't need to add anything in the defense of a pressure cooker, they're great, no-one's suggesting people shouldn't use them; one can actually have both and use them in different ways. I don't understand why you're so hell bent on proving slow cookers are "wrong".

A hammer is really good at putting nails in things. A screwdriver is really good at putting screws in things. So when you have a nail, you'll want a hammer, and when you have a screw, you'd want a screwdriver. Pressure cookers and slow cookers are different tools used for different things. You may have a particular problem, for which you choose the appropriate tool to solve your problem. Others may have other problems, so don't suggest that their different problems can be solved with the application of the tool you choose to solve your problem with. Because their problems, while seeming similar to your problem, are actually different problems, which require the application of different tools.

This is a frighteningly hard lesson for people to learn.

Made one of my favourite slowcooker meals again last night, and man it is so good.

Loosely based on this: http://www.shugarysweets.com/2013/05/sl ... edded-beef
Balsamic shredded beef. I used chuck slices, a cup of really good beef stock, 1/4 cup sweetener (which is half the equivalent of sugar in the recipe because that is just too sweet), and 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar. DeLISH. Left out the red pepper flakes.

Weeknight dinner couldn't have been easier or more yummy.
