I would like to throw a question. Which one is better, a stovetop Pressure Cooker or the electric one.

I've never used a stovetop one but my memory of them from years back was a lot of hissing and jiggling on the stove. I have no idea if the newer stovetop ones are like that or not. I like my electric one (Instant Pot) as it hisses a bit while it builds pressure then the pin pops and that's it. It's quiet then till I release the steam at the end. There are a lot of safety features built in they say and while I'm sure that's true I do think some of the safety thing is just common sense so probably the stovetop ones are fine too.
I was just always afraid of them as they almost seemed alive. hahaha.

I have an electronic one, two or three vintage stovetop ones, and a couple of canners. I like the set and forget convenience of the electronic one and the multiple safety features, auto shut-off and variable settings. Mine is an older one I got about fifteen years ago. I think the newer ones might have even more options on them now.
A lot of people complain about the noise of the stovetop ones, but I actually like it. It's not safe to wander far from a pressure cooker on the stove, but I can tell by the sound of it if it's doing what it should. That lets me be a little further away and still monitor it. Different strokes and all that.
I wouldn't give up either type because I use them for different purposes. And I should use them more than I do. I hate mushy food and tend to overcook stuff, so need more practice. I guess if I could only keep one, I would keep the small stovetop pressure canner. It's great for small batch canning and also cooking so is more of a multi-purpose item than the big canner or the smaller electronic PC.
