Benefits of having a pressure cooker
Slow cook to perfection with the help of a good quality pressure cooker. Reducing cook times by up to 50%, an electric or stovetop pressure cooker is economical, energy-efficient, and helps maintain more nutrients in your cooking. This fantastic multicooker makes easy work of traditional slow cooked dishes like stews and casseroles and is perfect for tenderising meat. Plus, with quick prep and easy cleaning, the pressure cooker saves you plenty of time in the kitchen.
Common types of pressure cooker spare parts
Some of the spare parts you are likely to find useful include:
Gasket (sealing ring): The gasket seals your pressure cooker to make it airtight. As the steam builds, so does the pressure, which cooks your food. Watch out for a cracked or torn gasket, as it can prevent the device from reaching full pressure. It’s best to keep a spare gasket on hand in case of emergencies.
Safety valve: Safety valves open to release the steam building in the pot once the pressure gets too high for safety. The safety valve can melt under extreme heat and must be replaced for your pressure cooker to work again. If the rubber ring has become loose, it’s always best to replace it.
Pressure regulator: The pressure regulator fits on the vent pipe and will release steam to prevent the pressure from exceeding a predetermined level. If no steam is released, check to make sure it is not blocked - your device will not work without it.
Pressure cooker issues and defects to look out for
If your pressure cooker is not functioning like it usually does, there are a few key issues to look out for:
Damaged gaskets - these can be easily removed and replaced
No whistling - ensure the gasket is positioned correctly and tighten all handles
Low pressure - make sure you have the correct quantity of water
Leaking - check that the gasket is well fitted and tighten up the lid
The pressure cooker lid is stuck - give it time to release and if needed, you can also remove the pressure valve.
Clogged pressure valves - clean your gasket and the pressure valves to remove dirt.
Damaged lid - the pressure cooker lid is the most crucial part and must be in good working order
