I use a steamer - because we like our veggies crunchy and I'm not willing to risk cooking them in the pressure cooker. I usually peek when steaming them. My SO would actually prefer them raw - but I love the beautiful green color you get when broccoli is steamed - and would prefer them undercooked to overcooked.

I've also never thought that it took very long to steam most veggies. So I don't really see the advantage.
Remember you can still use your pressure cooker as a regular pot when you aren't pressure cooking - you don't need a particular pot for everything. And the KR is a nice stainless steel piece of cookware.

I use my pressure cooker primarily for risotto's and bean soups.
Do you have the Sass cookbook? Check your local library for a copy then you can try it before you buy it - The Voluptuous vegan also has some recipes for pressure cooking.
