Get yourself a pressure cooker. With it you can save on energy and food costs.
Faster cooking time = Less energy spent
Legumes and cheap meat cooks faster = cheaper food
Seriously, you can buy the most crappy cuts with most connective tissue and the pressure cooker will dissolve all that and you end up with delicious meat. Also cooking beans for example is a lot less hassle when you don't have to cook it for hours and hours.
Your relative probably has one somewhere that is useless to them lying around. They used to be a fad .

My family do in fact have these lying around. One of my people uses it and I can attest to its delicious cooking qualities, however I don't know if the procedure for using it is different to a normal pot and that she's learnt to use it well. I'm also a sissy around them, they hiss a lot and I worry they'll explode and kill me with shrapnel and stew.
Also searching 'pressure cooker' on Google used to get you no-knock raided in some buttfuck parts of America.

It's easy to use. Insert water and dry beans, turn up heat to high, start timer for 20 minutes, close lid. When vigorous hissing begins, turn heat to medium. When timer goes off, remove pot from heat and wait. When pot cools enough to unlock itself, open and serve.

OR soak the beans first and then change the 20 above to a 5 (roughly, depending on bean type). OR use black-eyed peas and 5-minute cooking time with NO soaking (black-eyed peas are naturally flimsy I guess). OR use lentils and change the 20 above to a 0, again with no soaking (lentils are very flimsy).

I don't know how to do it with meat but whatever I'm sure it's pretty easy.

Explosion is not an issue if you're using a cooker in decent condition. Modern ones have pressure-driven locking mechanisms to stop you from opening them too early and blasting yourself in the face, as well as, totally separately from that, emergency release valves so that if the main hissing valve clogs then you'll only end up with a controlled spewing rather than an instantaneous, shrapnel-throwing blast. If you visually peek and (if necessary) blow through the main valve before you put the cooker away every time, then you shouldn't ever get any clog there anyway, supposing you don't try to cook up a pot of glue or something.

Pressure cookers are AWESOME.

Oh whoops I got the timings wrong... not that anybody is probably going to follow my instructions anyway, but in case somebody does, what I meant to say is:

black-eyed peas: 5 minutes between start of hissing and removal from heat
lentils: 0 minutes between start of hissing and removal from heat
harder beans (pinto, navy, etc.), pre-soaked: 5-ish minutes between start of hissing and removal from heat
harder beans, not pre-soaked: 20 minutes between START OF COOKING and removal from heat, so maybe like 13 minutes between start of hissing and removal from heat

It's not advanced math or anything; you get used to it. Pick your few recipes you like and memorize them and there you go, easy cheap food.

Also if you leave the lid off it's just a regular pot, as long as you treat it nicely and don't dent up the top edge or anything (that could mess up the seal). It's nice to have one extra pot for free.

They can also be used to make bombs also, so that's pretty handy.

NEGATIVE.
You want a crock pot. Its way safer, and low stream of energy used. Plus coming home to a hot, cooked meal is awesome are waking up to warm breakfast oatmeal. etc.
So easy to prepare.

Slow cookers are so fucking important anon.
I mostly eat stew and soup. And eggs for breakfast. Easy, cheap. Leave it plugged in on low, go to work, come home and eat right away.
