This plus plan on adding a flavorful garnish just before serving, like chopped fresh parsley or another herb, or a drizzle of vinegar or citrus juice, depending on what you're making.

I am with you on that. I too gave my crock pot away to the church for their annual church fair. It got snapped up immediately. Good luck to the person who bought it.

I ALWAYS had good luck with a pressure cooker. I need to buy another one.

If you are going to be home anyway, a pressure cooker is the way to go. I feel that a slow cooker is fit only for soups. What would be a good meal when cooked in almost any other method is ruined if cooked in a slow cooker. Trying to find the right meat for a slow cooker is just too expensive and nerve wracking. You put all your effort into what you hope will be a meal the whole family will rave about, and instead you get a lot of disappointment. The family certainly won't be asking for seconds.

Save the slow cooker for soups and other dishes that don't require a lot of money.
