Proper precautions must be taken to prevent the risk of burns, fires, or other injury to persons or damage to property.
This appliance is equipped with a grounded-type 3-wire cord 3-prong plug. This plug will only fit into an electrical outlet made for a 3-prong plug. This is a safety feature. If the plug should fail to fit the outlet, contact an electrician to replace the obsolete outlet. Do not attempt to defeat this safety feature. If the electrical circuit is overloaded with other appliances, your appliance may not operate properly. It should be operated on a separate electrical circuit from other appliances.
The special cera-c fillers in the coating make it safe for use with metal utensils. Please note that minor surface marring may occur, but will not affect the non-stick performance.
Care and cleaning of your Programmable Electric Pressure Cooker is a snap with the ScratchGuard TM coating, as it has ztel-adesigned to be completely non-stick. Washing or rinsing with warm, soapy water and a sponge or a cloth is all that is recquired. Do not use steel wool, coarse scouring pads or harsh abrasives on any surface coated with ScratchGuardTm.
You are about to learn how to cook and prepare delicious, home made meals in a fraction of the time it normally takes, without sacrificing flavor or nutrition. Your Programmable Pressure Cooker is quick, safe and easy to use. And best of all, it can shorten the traditional cooking time of most foods by up to 70 percent. Your Programmable Pressure Cooker cooks like a traditional Pressure Cooker by combining steam heat and pressure for faster cooking times.
Since an air tight seal is formed when the Lid is closed and locked, the heat and steam stay trapped inside the Removable Cooking Pot. As the steam builds and the pressure rises, the cooking temperature will get as hot as F, which is F hotter than when food is cooked in a standard pot with liquid.
This combination of high heat and pressure cooks the food faster while retaining water soluble nutrients and flavor. Your Pressure Cooker takes the guesswork out of cooking under pressure. A built-in Thermostat knows exactly when low or high pressure is reached inside the Removable Cooking Pot and automatically adjusts the heat and triggers the timer to begin. These computerized functions eliminate the need to make heat adjustments. The unit will begin to count down in minutes, and will beep 3 times and the STOP Light will illuminate when finished.
Once pressure is reached, the unit will begin to count down in minutes and will beep 3 times when the cooking time has elapsed. The Pressure Cooker will beep periodically as a reminder that your cooking is completed.
This Feature is for your convenience to show that the program is incomplete. The "--" signal indicates that the Pressure Cooker is not programmed properly and will not run. Your selected time will reappear. Rinse with clear water and dry thoroughly. The Rubber Gasket must be conditioned periodically to help it maintain its flexibility and prevent it from cracking or tearing.
Lightly coat the Gasket with vegetable oil before you begin cooking each time or if condensation begins to drip down the front of the Pressure Cooker during cooking. Make sure the Rubber gasket is seated properly around the Lid. Wait 15 minutes, then release pressure by pressing on the Quick Steam Release Button in short bursts. The Pressure Indicator Rod will drop.
Let the appliance cool to room temperature. Pour out the water. Rinse and towel dry the Removable Cooking Pot. The Pressure Cooker is now ready to be used. For best results, always check that the Pressure Regulator Knob, Pressure Indicator, Steam Release Valve and Safety Valves are in good working order and that there are no foreign particles blocking the Valve openings on the underside of the Lid. If the Pressure Cooker is unplugged or switched off, allow at least 30 seconds for the program to clear before turning the unit back on.
The special ceramic fillers in the coating make it safe for use with metal utensils. Place the Lid on the Pressure Cooker. See Figure 5. See Figure 6. Otherwise, the Pressure Cooker will beep periodically as a reminder that your cooking is completed. Allow the appliance to cool before cleaning. After it has cooled, unplug it from the wall outlet. Place cooked food in the Removable Cooking Pot. For best results, food should be patted dry with paper towels and cut into small, uniform pieces.
Brown or saut6 food in small batches. Place the Removable Cooking Pot into the Housing. Add the appropriate amount of oil as called for in the recipe. After approximately one minute of preheating, add food and begin browning. Arrange food in a heat-resistant steaming basket and use basket handles to lower basket into the Removable Cooking Pot.
Fold handles down. You may add more food on top of and around basket, but do not fill more than two thirds full. By cooking in the Programmable Pressure Cooker at high temperature and pressure you are able to reduce the cooking time of most foods by up to 70 percent. Add at least 1 cup 8 ounces of liquid to the Removable Cooking Pot when cooking under pressure. Do not fill the Removable Cooking Pot more than one-third full when cooking dried beans and legumes; no more than half full when cooking soups and stews; and no higher than the MAX Fill Line when cooking vegetables or whole pieces of meat.
The cooking time begins from the moment pressure is reached and does not include the time it takes for the Pressure Cooker to come up to the selected pressure. The Lights will blink faster as pressure builds and the cooking countdown begins. The Pressure Indicator Rod will rise as pressure builds. After cooking under pressure for the desired programmed time, the Pressure Cooker will beep 3 times and the red STOP Light will illuminate. The Natural Steam Release Feature is preferred when cooking foods like stocks, sauces, and certain large cuts of meat which will benefit from continued cooking in the Pressure Cooker as the pressure and temperature drop naturally as the unit cools.
DO NOT use with foods that can over-cook easily and quickly. When pressure is completely released, the Pressure Indicator Rod will drop. To release pressure immediately after cooking, use the Quick Steam Release Feature. If this happens, allow the pressure to come down naturally, or wait for a minute, then resume releasing the steam in very short bursts. Remove the Lid, tilting it away from you to avoid steam.
Check the food to see if it has been cooked sufficiently. To pressure cook foods like vegetables, add water to the Removable Cooking Pot. Place the food on the rack. For best results, do not overfill or pack the food down. Follow the same procedure for cooking under pressure. Use the Quick Steam Release Feature for releasing the pressure.
Since steam is hotter than boiling water, always take care when opening the appliance after cooking under pressure. Never place your face over the Pressure Cooker when removing the Lid. Also, be aware that hot, boiling liquid increases in volume when under pressure. When opening the Pressure Cooker after making soups and stock, let the food sit several minutes before releasing the pressure and removing the Lid to make sure the hot liquid will not boil over. Since overcooked food cannot be corrected, it is advisable to err on the undercooked side by cooking an unfamiliar food for a shorter period of time than you may think necessary.
It is easy to adapt your favorite recipe for use in the Programmable Pressure Cooker. For the most part, soups, stews, braised and slow roasted meats and legumes, steamed and braised vegetables, and slow-simmered recipes like tomato sauce, provide the best results.
Instructions and Timing Charts for cooking commonly prepared foods under pressure can be found in the following Section. Bear in mind that the amount of cooking liquid used when adapting a recipe will be much less since you will be cooking in a sealed pot for a much shorter time. You must, however, use sufficient liquid, since the Pressure Cooker is constantly building steam during the entire cooking process.
If you run out of liquid, and continue cooking, the food will not cook properly and may burn. While there is no universal guide for adapting recipes, trial and error will come into play until you understand how your Pressure Cooker cooks. Never try to force open the Self-Locking Lid. Do not cook dumplings or other foaming ingredients under pressure without adding oil.
Oil controls foaming and diminishes the possibility that a particle of food will block the safety devices. The Rubber Gasket must always be properly positioned on the underside of the Lid. Check periodically to make sure that it is clean, flexible and not cracked or torn.
If damaged, do not use this appliance. Turn the Lid over and place on table top as shown to the side. Cleanin See Figure Replace the Pressure Brush Regulator Knob before using again. In order to maintain the good performance of your Pressure Cooker, the bottom of the Removable Cooking Pot, in the area of the Sensor Pad, must be cleaned after each use.
The Sensor must be free of dirt, food, or residue.
