Pressure Cooker Safety Tips

Source - Prestige & Hawkin's

Wash the cooker body / lid regularly with soap water. Do not use soda. Dry immediately.

Always store your Pressure cooker with lid open.

Read recipe / instruction booklet carefully for more details.

If after long use, the Rubber Gasket leaks, lightly stretch it diagonally to extend life.

Only buy original spare parts from an Authorised Service centre to ensure long, trouble- free service from your Pressure cooker.

When not in use, remove the rubber gasket from the lid and store in a cool place.

Always use wooden spatula for stirring.

Always keep all handles fully tightened.

Make sure there is enough water in your pressure Cooker while cooking.

Clean the weight assembly regularly to avoid clogging. This will prevent high temperature / pressure from building up and melting the alloy pellet of the metallic safety valve.

Never fill the unit over 2/3rd full. In case of solids, do not fill the unit over ½ full.

During cooking / serving , don’t tap the rim with spoons, etc, as this will nick it and allow steam to escape, even with a new gasket.

Never leave it standing in water or the shine will dull.
