IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
Before using the electrical appliance, basic precautions should always be followed,
including safeguards below:
1. Read all instructions.
2. Keep pressure cooker out of reach of children.
3. Before use, check that the voltage of wall outlet corresponds to the one shown on the
rating plate.
4. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the appliance
malfunctions, or is dropped or damaged in any manner. Return appliance to the nearest
authorized service facility for examination, repair or electrical or mechanical adjustment.
5. If the supply cord is damaged it must be replaced by the manufacturer or an authorized
service agent or a qualified technician in order to avoid a hazard.
6. NEVER deep fry or pressure fry in the pressure cooker. It is very dangerous and may
cause a fire, serious burns and/or damage.
7. Keep hands and face away from pressure regulator knob when releasing pressure.
8. After completing cooking, use extreme caution when removing the lid. Burns can
result from steam inside the unit.
9. Never use without the removable cooking pot inside the pressure cooker.
10. Never cover the appliance while in operation. Keep the pressure valves clear.
11. Do not fill the pressure cooker more than 1/2 full with food or 2/3 full with liquid. When
cooking foods that tend to expand during cooking, do not fill the cooker over 1/2 full.
12. Unplug from outlet when not in use, before putting on or taking off parts, and before
cleaning.
3
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
13. Do not cook foods like oatmeal, pearl barley, other cereals, cranberries, applesauce,
rhubarb, split peas, noodles and pasta - as these foods tend to froth and foam, blocking
the floating valve.
13. Do not let cord hang over edge of table or hot surface.
14. Do not immerse plug, cord or housing into water due to the risk of electric shock.
15. Close supervision is necessary when your appliance is being used near children.
16. This appliance is not intended for use by persons (including children) with reduced
physical, sensory or mental capabilities, or lack of experience and knowledge, unless
they have been given supervision or instruction concerning use of the appliance by a
person responsible for their safety. Children should be supervised to ensure that they
do not play with the appliance.
17. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use knobs or handles.
18. Do not place near hot gas or electric burner.
19. Keep away from flammable material such as curtains, draperies and such during
operation.
20. The use of accessories not recommended by the manufacturer may cause injuries to
persons.
21. Do not operate the appliance for other than its intended use.
22. Do not use outdoors.
23. To avoid the risk of electric shock, cook in the removable cooking pot ONLY.
24. Extreme caution should be used when moving any appliance containing hot food
or liquid.
4
IMPORTANT SAFEGUARDS
25. Servicing and repair should only be conducted by a qualified technician.
CAUTION: Perishable foods like meat, poultry, fish, shellfish and dairy products cannot
be left at room temperature for more than 2 hours. When cooking the above mentioned
foods, do not use the delay time function for more than 1 to 2 hours.
POLARIZED PLUG
This appliance has a polarized plug (one blade is wider than the other). To reduce the
risk of electric shock, this plug will fit in a polarized outlet only one way. If the plug
does not fit fully into the outlet, reverse the plug. If it still does not fit, contact a qualified
electrician. Do not attempt to modify the plug in any way.

HELPFUL TIPS
- When cooking on the PRESSURE setting, for best cooking results always use at least
1 cup (8 oz) of water or liquid so enough steam can build up to produce pressure.
- Do not fill the Pressure Cooker more than 1/2 full with food or 2/3 full with liquid. There
must be enough liquid to create steam, otherwise the food will not be cooked properly.
- If you are not sure of the cooking time for certain foods while cooking on Pressure
Setting, it is recommended to under cook and check the doneness by performing the
Quick Pressure Release method (on p.10). Continue cooking if the food requires more
time.
- When using the High and Low pressure setting, the timer should not begin counting
down until the right amount of pressure has been created.
- Always cook fresh fruit on low pressure.
- You may choose tougher, less expensive cuts of meat to be cooked on pressure setting,
as the meat will break down and get tender.
- When cooking beans, add a tablespoon of oil to reduce foaming during the cooking
process.

TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM
SOLUTION
If the steam is leaking from
under the cover, because the
cover is not properly closed,
the gasket isn’t positioned
properly or is damaged, or the
pressure cooker is overfilled.
1. UNPLUG THE POWER CORD FROM THE POWER OUTLET.
2. Turn the pressure regulator knob to STEAM, using short bursts,
until the pressure is fully released.
3. ONLY THEN remove the lid. Check the gasket for any tears or cracks.
4. Check to make sure the gasket is positioned properly
(p.19 steps 5-7)
5. If too full, remove excess liquid and continue cooking.
If you have not added enough
liquid to the pressure cooker,
and the floating valve has not
risen, while the timer is
counting down.
1. Stop the pressure cooking by pressing the STOP/START button.
2. Turn the pressure regulator knob to STEAM, using short bursts,
until the pressure is fully released.
3. ONLY THEN remove the lid and add approx. 1 cup (8 oz) of water
or liquid. Stir to mix all food.
4. Place the lid back on, turn to counter clockwise to lock.
5. Press the LOW or HIGH pressure button and set the desired time.
6. Press the START/STOP button to begin cooking again.

TROUBLESHOOTING
PROBLEM
If you can’t open or remove
the cover.
SOLUTION
1. Make sure all of the pressure has been released. Perform the quick
release by turning the pressure regulator knob to STEAM, using short
bursts, until the pressure is fully released.
2. If you still cannot open the lid, bring the contents of the cooker up
to pressure by pressing the LOW or HIGH pressure button and setting
the desired time. Press the START/STOP button.
3. If the cover still won’t come off, call customer service at
