The majority are correct here. You need both a water bath and a pressure cooker. Some things, such as tomatoes, only need a water bath. Others items, like meat, definitely need pressure to be safe. You may hear older people say they never pressure cooked and everything was fine but don't go by that. They just got lucky and didn't get botchulism. Just be sure, as someone else mentioned, to follow the recipes and times. It's really important.
