Paula deen pressure cooker. Can I use it for slow cooking? What is temp of keep warm? Could put lid on loose. Also, timing notches are mixed into keep warm button. I overcooked my first batch


A pressure cooker is NOT anything close to a slow cooker. The cooking philosophy are practically totally opposites. A pressure cooker basically cooks your food in a fraction of time because it is under pressure. A slow cooker takes hours.

The whole idea of using a pressure cooker is that it is sealed and applies pressure to cook the food faster. The lid needs to be sealed for the pressure cooker to operate properly. It is frequently referred to as "infusion" cooking now days.

You need to read the instruction book that came with the pressure cooker. Pressure cookers usually cook for less than an hour--my homemade pressure cooker spaghetti sauce is cooked in less than 30 minutes. They are nice and were very popular long before anyone thought of microwaves and slow cookers. However, there are some precautions to be taken. There must be water or liquid in a pressure cooker. The rubber seal needs to be cleaned frequently and, when the rubber seal warps/stretches and no longer seals, it needs to be replaced. There are also certain foods that CANNOT be cooked in a pressure cooker like rice, dry beans, etc. The pressure control valve operates to regulate the amount of pressure and releases extra pressure otherwise the unit would blow up (very dangerous!). Most pressure cookers (required on all new ones) have a small rubber emergency stopper that will "blow off" in case the pressure is too high. I've seen this happen and my mother cleaning potatoes & meat from the ceiling!

I have never had a slow cooker in my life and found this one in a garage sale without the manual. How does it work?


Yes you can use any cheaper cuts of meat or chicken and yes less liquid is used in slow cookers. add hard veges n use green veges for end of cooking time. cook for 6 or 8 hrs on low. Yeilds ecellent results. Find slow cooker books for great meals n desserts. I use mine every week.

How do you clean the burnt on food inside the base of a crock pot with a removable crock?


I have the exact same problem! I cooked soup that slowly boiled over the edge and burned inside the base. I know you can't soak it and I don't want to ruin it. Help!

The ladies at church continually want to place water in the large roasters and then put the insert in place. I don't believe this is necessary or safe since the water and steam are trapped between the...


Hi Jerry,
The ladies are right.

The appliance is called a steam table, and it operates on the same principle as a double-boiler. The design uses water as a thermal buffer between the heating element and the food, and ensures that the food is kept at food-safe serving temperature (varies by food, but typically over 140F, sometimes over 170F) but won't let the food get hotter than 212F so it doesn't burn or overcook the food.

If it's splattering boiling water, then it's overfilled and you should reduce the amount of water, but only by a little bit. A steam table should NEVER be allowed to run completely dry.


As for the steam getting you when you take out a pan -- that's true, and you do have to be very careful when you remove pans from a steam table.

I got a large Rival Crock Pot thinking that it would be great for our family of 6, but it always overcooks or burns, even on low settings and with a good amount of good in it. Any suggestions? It's a...


Like ou, we got one as well and they are great.
If it's burning or overcooking on Low, it may be the heat control is malfunctioning. My wife made several suggestions...

1. Take it back to where you bought it and exchange it for another.
2. Call Rival Customer Service and ask them about it 1-800-557-4825
3. Put a layer of vegetables (carrots, celery, potatoes, etc) on the bottom and meat on top of it, with fluid to keep it moist. Cook on low for shorter periods of time.

Teflon peeling off inside pan and going into the food


Teflon is very dangerous. I discovered this when I got birds. Teflon is so deadly that if it is even slightly heated (by having a pan in the drawer below the stove) by having the oven on, it kills birds - immediately. It becomes airbourne and is that toxic. I know of so many examples of bird's dying from it. Can you imagine how tramatic it would be to be cooking and your bird drops dead. I had to get rid of all my pans because of them. And I'm glad for it. So it would be, not deadly, but not great to ingest for humans. Teflon is also in some heaters so its good to check that too.

Ultrex pressure cooker model innova 14240


Pressure cookers are only slightly more complicated than crock pots. In fact, you can think of them as the opposite of Crock pots. Where a crock pot needs 2-3 times as long to cook something, the pressure cooker needs only 1/2 to 1/3 of the time.

These are not that complicated and haven't changed in the last 50 years. The only real hard part is being sure is doesn't explode; not that hard: don't cook things that would foam, like pasta or potatoes. Just read some recipes on the internet or get a recipe book at a bookstore, used book store (super-cheap)or the library. My best advice is to make sure you use the lowest possible heat that still allows steam to escape at a whisper. That will keep things from burning (or scorching) on the bottom, which can give a harsh taste and make clean-up more work. Just do it.
