Prejudiced on Pressure

I'll let it be known in public: I have a prejudice against pressure cookers. For whatever reason, I seem to default to my crock pot instead, because I don't have to babysit it. I can dump my ingredients into the pot, set it, run out the door to work, and come home to a lovely smelling house and a hearty meal. If I set it earlier in the day, Steve can come home to a piping hot dinner without having to stop and think about anything. I don't see myself ever needing dried beans cooked in 20 minutes or whatever. For that, I can use the tinned. And if it's a bean like lentils or split peas, it doesn't take that long to cook to begin with. Anyone else with me?
