Safety
Always keep hands and face away from Pressure Release Valve, when venting pressure.
Use extreme caution when removing lid after cooking. Always tilt the lid away from you,
so any remaining steam is blocked from your face.
Never attempt to open lid while cooking, or before pressure has dropped. Do not attempt
to defeat this safety feature by forcing it.
Do not cover or block the valves.
Do not touch the pot or lid except for the handle immediately after using.
To avoid burns, allow food to cool before tasting. The temperature of the food gets
considerably hotter than with conventional cooking.

IMPORTANT
DO NOT IMMERSE THE
MAIN COOKING UNIT IN
WATER
Pressure cooking is an ideal
way to make fast, tasty meals
for your family! This method
of cooking makes it easy for
even the busiest cooks to
prepare meals from scratch.
Use your Rapid Cook for fish,
chicken, fresh vegetables,
rice, legumes, and even
dessert – and everything can
be cooked to perfection in
minutes. The Rapid Cook will
save you time, energy and
money, as well as valuable
nutrients. Boiling liquid inside
the tightly sealed pot
produces steam, which is
trapped inside to create
pressure. The very hot
temperature produced
reduces cooking times. The
steam helps break down
fibres of whatever you are
cooking and infuse the food
with flavours. This also
captures all of the watersoluble nutrients, making the
food higher in flavour and
more nutritious than with
conventional cooking
methods.
Please note:
During initial use, you may
notice a slight odour due to
the burning off of
manufacturing residue. This is
completely normal, does not
effect the food being cooked
and will disappear after a few
uses.
Place the base › on to a
dry, level, heat resistant
surface, away from the edge
of the work surface. Do not
use on the floor.
Steam will escape from the
vent while heating, and
sometimes during the
cooking cycle. This is
perfectly normal. Therefore,
do not use the Rapid Cook
under overhanging wall
cupboards.
Unlocking the lid
Remove the lid (after
releasing the pressure) by
turning the lid anti clockwise,
grip the handle as shown A.
If the lid is tight use two
hands.
Remove all labels and tags
from the product.
Avoid leaving the lid fully
immersed in water, as it will
take a long time to drain.
Attach the drip tray Ò to the
space provided at the rear,
simply clip into place. Any
overspill into the drainage
channel ‹ at the top of the
cooking pot will collect into
this tray.
After use fully clean this area
by wiping away any spilled
food and clean the drip tray.

Before cooking the meat in

important that the meat is
sealed / browned first. This
means to cook the meat

Add the appropriate amount
of oil to the pan for the
quantity of meat you wish to
seal.
We recommend that
approximately two
tablespoons of vegetable oil
is suitable to seal between
800g-1200g of meat. This
can however be varied
depending on personal taste
and the amount of fat in the
meat being sealed.
To select the Sealing
function, press the Function
button fl once. The Rapid
Cook will beep once, and the
display will show 0:15
minutes on the timer, and the
Browning indicator Ê will be
illuminated.
The Rapid Cook will then
start to heat up and the timer
 will begin to countdown.
The oil will take
approximately 5 minutes to
reach the correct temperature
for sealing / browning meat
(i.e. when the timer reads
0:10.)
A good way to test if the oil
is hot enough is to add a
small piece of meat or onion
to the pan. If it sizzles when it

does not sizzle, let the pan

that expand while cooking
(i.e. legumes, peas etc)
should never go above the
3/5 mark.
Add the meat to pan and stir
regularly until the outside of
the meat is sealed / browned.
When the timer reaches zero,
the Rapid Cook will beep five
times and the cooking
process will stop. If your
meat is sealed before the
timer reaches zero, press the

Be sure the lid is secured

You may wish to brown some
meats before cooking with
other ingredients. To do so,
select browning function and
preheat for 5 minutes without

Do not cover when browning.
•
Cut foods into uniform-size
pieces to promote even
cooking. In recipes that call
for various ingredients, cut
those that cook more quickly
into larger pieces and those
that cook more slowly into
smaller pieces.
Pressure is completely
reduced when the Steam
Release Dial is in the ‘VENT’
position E,
and you no longer hear
steam escaping from the
valve, and the lid opens freely
with no force. Only then is it
safe to remove the Rapid
Cook lid and serve the food.
Remove lid by grasping the
handle and twisting the lid
anti-clockwise. As a safety
feature, the lid will not open
unless all pressure is
reduced. DO NOT force the
lid open if it does not open
freely, this means the unit is
still under pressure.
Read this manual thoroughly
and follow all
recommendations.

Many different cooking
liquids can be used in a
pressure cooker: wine, beer,
bouillon, fruit juices, water
and more.
After becoming familiar with
your Rapid Cook, you can
convert conventional recipes
for pressure cooking. In
general, reduce cooking
times by two-thirds. The
amount of liquid used may
also have to be adjusted
because there is very little
evaporation from the
pressure cooker. Reduce the
amount of liquid so there is
only about ½ cup more than
desired in the finished
product. Remember,
however, there must always
be some liquid in the
pressure cooker to form the
necessary steam. Try this
formula: 1 cup of liquid for
the first 15 minutes of
pressure cooking then 1/3
