Different gadgets come and go, but there's one big appliance that's made a huge comeback this year. It's the pressure cooker. When I was growing up, my mom had a pressure cooker, a massive pot she used on the stovetop that hissed and whistled and sizzled intimidatingly on the burner. But these days, electric pressure cookers like the Instant Pot are all the rage. You can use them on the countertop, and they're safer than the old stovetop models, meaning they're the perfect tool for churning out fast, hearty and tasty meals in one pot without having to mess up the rest of the kitchen.

There are more than 2 million pressure cooker recipes on Pinterest, and Pinterest saves for pressure cooker recipes have gone up 691 percent compared to last year according to a Pinterest spokesperson. So if you're finally ready to get one for yourself or if you're a die-hard fan who's looking for new ways to use yours, these popular Pinterest pressure cooker recipes are just the ticket.
