You're confusing a croak pot and a pressure cooker.    You can lift the lid of a croak pot at any time during the cooking process.

 

 

fair point.  I was actually referring to the selling point for slow cookers. that you can throw everything in it,  go to work for 8 hours and come home to as nice cooked meal. as opposed to cooking and  adjusting as you go, to get the right result.  I never found that to be so, but I know that many people swear by them. To me its like taking a sledge hammer to break a nut. No finesse whatsoever, and good cooking is all about finesse.   I didn't make that clear enough.

I just got the bug yesterday to buy one of those digital pressure cookers..."Instant Pot" of course the real version can be had for about $100 bucks in the US (Amazon) but here triple at about $300 dollars. So of course looking for a knockoff from China...anyone have any recommendations ?

You can lift the lid, but doing so frequently can greatly increase the cooking time:

 

"Keep the lid on. Do not lift the lid or cover unnecessarily during the cooking cycle. Each time the lid is raised, the internal temperature drops 10 to 15 degrees and the cooking process is slowed by 30 minutes."

Prep the food, chuck it in the slow cooker

My wife is a fast cooker - can whip up a meal in minutes...

 

You lost me at 'prep the food'

Yeah, I try and do ballet while my food cooks but it doesn't help.

Whatever you do, please don’t reheat your meal in a slow cooker; the contents can ‘turn’ and become inedible and possibly poisonous for some reason. Rather tip into a saucepan and reheat on a stove or microwave.
