To protect against fire, electric shock
and injury to persons, do not immerse
cord, plugs, or the pressure cooker
housing in water or other liquid.
Do not touch hot surfaces. Always
use handles or knobs.
Close supervision is necessary when
any appliance is used by or near
children.
Do not let cord hang over edge of
table or counter, or touch hot surfaces.
Do not operate any appliance with a

qualified electrician or service person if you are in doubt as to
whether the outlet is properly grounded. Do not modify the plug
provided with the appliance - if it will not fit the outlet, have a
proper outlet installed by a qualified electrician.
This appliance is for use on a nominal 120-volt circuit, and has
a grounding attachment plug that looks like the plug illustrated
at right. Make sure that the appliance is connected to an outlet
having the same configuration as the plug. No adaptor should
be used with this appliance.
1. If it is necessary to use an extension cord, use only a 3-wire extension cord that
has a 3-blade grounding plug and a 3-slot receptacle that will accept the plug on
the appliance. The marked rating of the extension cord should be equal to or
greater than the electrical rating of the appliance.
OR
2. Do not use an extension cord. If the power cord is too short, have a qualified
electrician or serviceman install an outlet near the appliance.
Please Note:
1. A short power supply cord is provided to reduce the risks resulting from
becoming entangled in or tripping over a longer cord.
2. Extension cords may be used if care is exercised in their use.
3. If a long cord or extension cord is used, (1) the marked electrical rating of the
cord set or extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of
the appliance, (2) the extension cord must be a grounding-type 3-wire cord, and (3)
the longer cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the countertop or
tabletop where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over accidentally.
WARNING: Danger of Scalding. Please use caution when using the
pressure cooker. The steam emitted from this appliance is very hot.

corrected, it is almost better to err on the
undercooked side by cooking an unfamiliar
food for a shorter period of time than you
may think necessary.
Using the “Keep Warm” Feature
This function can keep cooked foods warm
for up to 24 hours. The pressure cooker
will go into “Standby” mode for one minute
and then the “Keep Warm” mode will
automatically be engaged after the
cooking process has been completed.
The “Keep Warm” light will illuminate
when this feature is engaged. (Fig. 10)
Always drain the soaking water from
the beans and cook with fresh water.
Soaking also cuts down the cooking
time and keeps the bean skins from
separating from the flesh.
If you don’t have time to soak the
beans overnight, use the Hot Soaking
Method: Use 5 cups water for every 8
oz. dried beans, pressure cook on low
pressure for 3 minutes, remove from
heat source and let stand 1-4 hours.
Always use at least 2 Tsp. of oil when
cooking beans to reduce sputtering.
Always use the natural or slow release
method to reduce pressure.
Clean lid and vents thoroughly after
cooking rice or beans.
Meats & Poultry
When adapting recipes for braised
meats, allow 20 minutes cooking time
per pound of meat. Use 1 cup liquid for
the first pound and 1/2 cup for each
additional pound.
For steam-roasting poultry and meats,
brown first in oil for better appearance.
Rice
Fig. 10
Maintenance & Cleaning Instructions
6. Use a sponge or a non-metallic soft
brush to clean the diffuser.
7. The pressure release valve does
not have to be cleaned after each
use unless it has become clogged.
8. The sealant washer may need to be
cleaned. Remove it from the safety
floating valve and clean with warm,
soapy water. To replace, hold the
safety float valve with your finger
and push it in. (Fig. 12)
Cleaning & Storage
1. Always leave the pressure to cool
completely before you take the
components apart for cleaning.
2. Unplug and remove the power cord
from the appliance and the electrical
outlet.
3. Remove the vapor collector by
pulling it down and rinse under
warm, soapy water. (Fig. 11)
When cooking rice and grains, add 1
Tbs. butter or oil per cup to reduce
foaming and clogging the pressure
valve.
Since rice doubles in size when
cooked, be sure to use only half as
much uncooked rice as the cooker’s
capacity allows. For example, never
cook more than 1 3/4 cups raw rice in
the 3 1/2 qt. pressure pan and no more
than 4 cups raw rice in the 8 qt.
pressure pan.
Because rice will be slightly sticky
when cooked in a pressure cooker, it is
best to use a slow release method. For
example, allow cooling naturally or else
slowly releasing pressure one level at a
time.
To prevent burning, use a heat diffuser
if available, or bring to pressure on a
medium-high heat setting.
Desserts
Many desserts can be pressurecooked, especially those that use
eggs/and or are cooked over a hot
water bath, such as custards, bread
puddings and cheesecakes.
Use a dish that easily fits inside
pressure cooker allowing 1 inch of
space around the edge. The larger
pressure cooker works best for this.
Seal the dish completely with foil to
keep liquid from seeping into the
dessert. Soak up any moisture on top
of foil before removal.
For easy removal, place dish inside
steamer basket or make a sling out of
aluminum foil.
Beans
Vapor
Collector
Fig. 11
Fig. 12
9. Store the pressure cooker with the
cover upside down over the main
housing. DO NOT store with the
cover closed to avoid compressing
the sealing gasket for long periods
of time.
4. Wipe the outer housing of the
pressure cooker with a damp cloth.
DO NOT use any abrasive cleaners
or immerse in water or any other
liquid.
5. The removable cooking pot,
pressure cooker cover and sealing
gasket are washable. Wash them in
warm, soapy water. The removable
cooking pot and the cover are
dishwasher safe. The sealing
gasket is NOT.
Although it is not necessary to pre-soak
beans for pressure-cooking, there are
some advantages. Since the gasinducing properties of beans are water
soluble, soaking reduces their effects.
