About Pressure Cooking
Using Your Pressure Cooker
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 pressure cooker for fish, chicken,
fresh vegetables, rice, legumes, and even dessert -- and everything can
be cooked to perfection in minutes.
1
Gather all ingredients and be familiar with your recipe. Pour required
amount of liquid into pressure cooker, then add food. Use the cooking
rack, if desired.Never load cooker above the maximum ingredient
level line. Foods that expand while cooking (i.e. legumes) should
never go above the halfway level.
The pressure cooker 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 time. The steam helps break down the
fibers of whatever you’re cooking and infuse the food with flavors. This
also captures all of the water-soluble nutrients, making the food higher in
flavor and more nutritious than with conventional cooking methods.
2
Make sure gasket is securely positioned in the inner lid. Always
examine the gasket before installing and before each use. Make sure
it is in good working order and free of any tears.
3
Secure cover on pressure cooker by first lining up the arrows printed
on the lid and the cooker. Then twist the lid clockwise to secure in
place (cover handles should be directly above the body handles).
4
Plug power cord into unit first and then into a 120-volt 60 Hz AC only outlet.
5
Set the pressure regulator to 10 or 15 PSI by lining up the circle with I
for 10 or II for 15. (Most recipes call for 15 PSI, or 15 pounds of pressure.)
Turning the regulator to the right increases PSI, and turning to the left
decreases PSI. Make sure pressure release valve is in the up position.
6
Set temperature dial to desired setting. Heat the pressure cooker until
the pressure indicator pops up, indicating high pressure has been
achieved. Adjust heat as indicated in your recipe to maintain
pressure. Cooking time begins at this point.
7
Set a kitchen timer and cook for the length of time specified in recipe.
Then reduce pressure as specified. When recipe states "let pressure
drop on its own," turn temperature dial to OFF and unplug the cooker.
When recipe states "reduce pressure at once" or “reduce pressure
manually”, flip the pressure release valve to release steam and
reduce pressure.
8
Pressure is completely reduced when the pressure indicator has
dropped. Only then is it safe to remove pressure cooker lid and serve
food. Remove lid by pressing green lid-release button and twisting lid
counter-clockwise. As a safety feature, the lid-release button will not
engage unless all pressure is reduced.
Additional Safety Tips
•
Always keep hands and face away from steam release valve
when reducing 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
indicator has dropped. Do not attempt to defeat the safety
lid-release button by forcing it.
•
Do not cover or block the pressure valves.
•
Do not touch the pot or lid except for the handles immediately
after using.
•
To avoid burns, allow food to cool before tasting.
The temperature of the food gets considerable hotter than
with conventional cooking.
•
Do not attempt to make applesauce in your pressure cooker.

Helpful Hints
Helpful Hints (cont.)
•
Read this manual thoroughly and follow all recommendations.
•
•
Start timing once pressure is reached. Immediately reduce heat to
just maintain that pressure.
For faster cooking times on rice or vegetables, bring the liquid to a boil
before adding the ingredients. Then secure lid and lower temperature.
•
When you are using frozen meats in your recipes, the cooking time
does not need to be altered. Pressure will not be acheived until the
internal temperature in the pot is 40 degrees higher than the boiling
point of water. So if the recipe declares the meat be cooked for 20
after pressure has been acheived, it will still be the same. It will just
take longer to come to pressure.
•
Always check to make sure your gasket and float valve are clean and
in good working order. •Remember if you are not using the basket
while pressure cooking the liquid will flavor what you are cooking. Try
using fresh herbs or aromatic vegetables like onions or garlic, wine or
stock. The flavor transference will be wonderful.
Only cook pasta in the suggested manner in this manual. Do not
attempt to boil pasta with pressure lid on; the foam can clog the
pressure valve. Stay away from making applesauce.
Never fill above the fill line. If you are making soup and you are at the
fill line, do not release pressure manually because hot liquid could
spurt out.
Never attempt to open lid while under pressure!!!
Always open pressure cooker with the lid facing away from you.
When using the steam release valve, proper evaporation of some
liquid may occur (i.e. when making rice or risotto).
•
Be familiar with the recipe and have all ingredients ready before you begin.
•
Be sure the lid is secured properly before developing pressure.
•
A kitchen timer is a must-have accessory. Timing is a vital key to
recipe success when pressure cooking.
•
You may wish to brown some meats before cooking with other ingredients. To do so, preheat pressure cooker (without lid) to 350°. Add oil
and brown meat. Do not cover or develop pressure 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.
•
Many different cooking liquids can be used in a pressure cooker:
wine, beer, bouillon, fruit juices, water and more.
•
•
•
After becoming familiar with your pressure cooker, 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
1/2 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 cup of liquid for each subsequent 15 minutes.
•
Since flavors are more concentrated, reduce amounts of herbs and
seasonings when converting conventional recipes. Fresh herbs are
better for pressure cooking than dried herbs.
•
When cooking dried beans, cereal grains, lentils, split peas, rice or
other foods that absorb liquid and expand, do not fill the cooker
more than half full. The normal fill line is two-thirds.
•
•
•
•
•
For best results translating recipes from other pressure cookers that
call for pressure of 12 PSI or higher always cook at 375. Use 2 cups of
liquid for recipes 15 minutes or less, 3 cups liquid for 16 - 30 minutes,
and 4 - 5 cups for recipes over 60 minutes.
Care & Cleaning
1
Allow pressure cooker to cool completely before cleaning. Unplug
the power cord from the outlet and then from the pressure cooker.
2
Generally speaking, pressure cookers cook foods in about 1/3 the
time of conventional cooking methods.
The pressure cooker pan, gasket and lid can be washed by hand with
warm, soapy water or in the dishwasher. Dry all parts thoroughly.
3
As a general rule, increase cooking times by about ten percent when
cooking in high altitudes over 3,500 feet.
If necessary, wipe the power cord and temperature dial clean with a
damp cloth. Dry thoroughly. Never immerse the power cord or plug.
4
Replace gasket securely in lid. After each use, check gasket for any
tears and make sure the pressure indicator and valve is in good
working order.
5
Do not store pressure cooker with lid secured in place. Invert the lid on
the pan and store in a dry place.
