How do I release pressure from the unit?
To Quick Release pressure from the unit, slide the pressure release valve to the VENT position by using the tab on the end. Be sure to keep your face away from the valve, as a quick burst of steam will spurt out of it. When all the steam is released, the red float valve will drop down and the unit will be ready to open. DO NOT place your hand over the valve because hot steam will release immediately.

To Natural Release pressure from the unit, DO NOT slide the pressure release valve to VENT. Instead, when the cook time is complete, wait for the unit to naturally release the pressure on its own. This can take up to 20 minutes, depending on the amount of liquid and food in the unit. During this time, the unit will switch to Keep Warm mode and the timer will start counting up. When Natural Release is complete, the red float valve will drop down.

How do I clean the unit?
The unit should be cleaned thoroughly after every use. Unplug the unit before cleaning. To clean the cooker base and control panel, wipe them down with a clean, damp cloth. NEVER immerse the cooker base in water or any other liquid. NEVER clean the cooker base in the dishwasher.
The cooking pot, steam rack, and removable silicone ring are all dishwasher safe. To clean the lid (including the pressure release valve and anti-clog cap) hand-wash in warm, soapy water. To clean the crisping lid, wipe it down with a wet cloth or paper towel after the heat shield has cooled.
Air-dry all parts after cleaning is complete. If there is food residue stuck on the cooking pot or steam rack, place the pot in the sink, fill it with warm water, and allow it to soak before cleaning.

ALWAYS use a non-abrasive sponge or cleaning tool when washing your unit.

How do I clean the silicone ring?
We recommend you clean the silicone ring after every use. Remove the silicone ring by pulling it by hand outward, section by section, from the silicone ring rack. Wash the silicone ring in warm, soapy water or on the top rack of the dishwasher to help remove any odor. It is common for the silicone ring to retain the smell of acidic foods, even after cleaning. The silicone ring can be installed with either side facing up. To reinstall the ring, press it down into the rack section by section. NEVER pull out the silicone ring with excessive force or with a utensil, as this may deform the ring or the rack, affecting the pressure-sealing function. If your silicone ring has cracks, cuts, or any other form of damage, it should be replaced immediately.

Troubleshooting


This FAQ page is a great place to find info, tips and help. Just make sure you’ve read your Owner’s Guide before using your unit.

Why is my unit taking so long to come to pressure? How long does it take to come to pressure?
  • Cooking times may vary based on the selected temperature, current temperature of the cooking pot, and temperature or quantity of the ingredients.
  • Check to make sure the silicone ring is fully seated and flush against the lid. If installed correctly, you should be able to tug lightly on the ring to rotate it.
  • Check that the pressure lid is fully locked and the pressure release valve is in the SEAL position when pressure cooking.


  • Please Note: It may take longer to build pressure if you live in a high-altitude area.

Lights are rotating on the display screen when using the Pressure or Steam function.

There is a lot of steam coming from my unit when using the Steam function.
It's normal for steam to release through the pressure release valve during cooking. Leave the pressure release valve in the VENT position when using the Steam and Slow Cook functions.

Thank you for your feedback
Something went wrong, please try again later
Why can’t I take the pressure lid off?
As a safety feature, the pressure lid will not unlock until the unit is completely depressurized. You will know when the unit has pressurized when the red float valve is up. Turn the pressure release valve to the VENT position to quick release the pressurized steam. A quick burst of steam will spurt out of the pressure release valve. When the steam is completely released, the red float valve will come down, and the unit will be ready to open. Turn the pressure lid counterclockwise, then lift it up and away from you.

Is the pressure release valve supposed to be loose?
Yes. The pressure release valve’s loose fit is intentional; it enables a quick and easy transition between SEAL and VENT and helps regulate pressure by releasing small amounts of steam during cooking to ensure great results. Make sure it is turned as far as possible toward the SEAL position when pressure cooking and as far as possible toward the VENT position when quick releasing steam.

The unit is hissing and not reaching pressure.
Make sure the pressure release valve is turned to the SEAL position. If you’ve done this and still hear a loud hissing noise, it may indicate the silicone ring is not fully in place. Press START/STOP to stop cooking, VENT as necessary, then remove the pressure lid. Press down on the silicone ring, ensuring it is fully inserted and lies flat under the ring rack. Once fully installed, you should be able to tug lightly on the ring to rotate it.
