Red beans in fifteen minutes. And you can't tell the difference than if they had been cooking all day. Any dried peas or beans work very well. A good tender chuck pot roast in about forty five minutes.
And my wife does it not me. I stay out of the kitchen when that thing starts hissing at me.

I have an electric one that is smallish. I can make a beef stew or dry beans to cooked beans in under an hour.
I have my eye on a 15.5 quart. It can be used for canning, even though I have never done that. Supposedly, you can make a rich stock in just a couple hours in one. For my gumbo, that would be priceless.
