I have a Kenwood. It's a slow, slow cooker. It does the job but it is a lot slower than my old one. I have a pressure cooker too. At the moment my slow cooker gets used more because I joined the slow cooker fb page. It's also convenient because I can put it on at the beginning of the day then clean up the dinner prep mess early so all I have to do is load the dishwasher at the end of dinner.
The pressure cooker is good because it can cook things in half the usual time but I exploded the lid off mine once by accident when I left it a little longer than I should have and the seal was getting old and I have been nervous since.
I agree slow cooker food has a taste but I have learned to use more flavours like herbs and spices.

You can buy a multi cooker (I have a breville fast slow cooker) so you can have the best of both worlds
I use both my pressure cooker and slow cooker functions all the time. Pressure cooker great when I haven't planned anything in the morning (that's usually the case), slow cooker great for feeling organised knowing tea is cooking and making the house smell tasty all day lol!

I am about to lose my slow cooker in favour of a dutch oven (chassuer). At least I can brown meat off then leave stuff in the pot either on the stove or in the oven on low all day (I will be home though...)

I have a nuwave 6l multi cooker. I used to have a 6l slow cooker and used it to batch cook all the time. I now cook all the same batch meals using the pressure cook function, plus quick meals at night. I actually haven't used the slow cook function since I got it - everything turns out just as well pressure cooked. It has a safety release that won't let you open the lid until the pressure has completely released too.

I have a slow cooker which I use occasionally, problem is with shift work you're not home at the right time to put it on. So can't use it on work days.
Mine is a ? Morphy Richards, I don't much like it though because it's only got one setting, and I don't even know what it is. So when your recipe says 4hrs on high or 8hrs on low, I just have to guess.
I'll be getting a pressure cooker in the next week or so. I'm hoping it will come in very handy for busy afternoons (which is every afternoon with school kids!).
