Simply Ming Pressure Cooker
I bought a Simply Ming Pressure Cooker but have never used a pressure cooker before. When I used it for the first time I placed the pressure vent on seal but when the pressure started building up it started coming out the vent. I was afraid it wouldn’t build up the required pressure so I jiggled the valve a little and it stopped.
Is the pressure suppose to be coming out of the vent or do you think it was just not sealed completely and what I did was appropriate?
Heard horror stories when young about pressure cookers causing havoc so I was a little nervous about buying and using it. Finally worked great on the lamb stew I was cooking and it didn’t explode so I guess I did something right
. Should I stop the steam from coming out when the pressure is just beginning to build up? Thanks for any help you can give. (Looked all over Web & Youtube but couldn’t find this particular cooker in use. )
I’ve never used a Pressure Cooker and I don’t think I ever will, because I don’t like them very much. So, I can’t offer any real advise, but
Item #408-720 has pretty good revews although some of the low reviews do mention weak valve.
Welcome to the community SunshineRivera.
I also heard horror stories of presssure cookers but those were stovetop pressure cookers.
There are built in safeties on the electric pressure cookers. I have had mine for over a year now and love it. I have the Elite and would say it has the same types of features.
When I first used mine, the valve stuck some and even now it does once in a while (I use mine ALOT).
I now use my meat thermometer to stick in the valve and jiggle around till it pops up. And the pamplet that came with it says to stick something in there and jiggle.
I also spray some cooking spray in it to help it to pop up and down freely.
Hope this helps you.
