I don't know... I think they are a fad.....
Seriously, you gotta get yourself one of those. Most definitely. Don't be concerned with the electric ones not reaching the "proper" atmospheric pressure as the stovetop ones, they work great. Timers, auto shut offs, double as a slow cooker (at least the one I have from QVC), idiot proof.
Just last week I took a couple country style ribs over to the neighbors. It seemed the right thing to do because my neighbor came over as I was searing them on the grill because he could smell them cooking. So after I finished them off in the pressure cooker I ran a couple over. Last night as I was chatting with them I had to tell his wife exactly how I cooked them. She couldn't believe I had country ribs that tasted like and were that tender in under an hour.
It's a very useful kitchen tool/appliance. Maybe not one you use every day, but when you do you will be glad you have it.
