The company had a major recall and went out of business. No manuals appear to be available on the web.
Here are some general instructions you can use:
1 Set up your cooker. Place your Ultrex Pressure Cooker on the stove. Remove the lid and pour in no more than 2 inches of water. Depending on what you are cooking the amount of water will vary. More water will ultimately cook larger amounts of food, but you will need to refer to your specific model's instructions on this matter.
2 Put in the food you wish to cook. Close and lock the lid firm to the pot. Make sure it is locked securely so none of contents boil out of the top.
3 Turn on your burner to high heat for approximately ten minutes. Allow the water to boil.
4 Turn the stove down to a low setting after the water is boiling in the cooker. Flip the pressure valve closed and allow your food to simmer.
Set the pressure valve to ten pounds. For vegetables, cook 30 to 45 minutes. For meats, cook 45 to 60 minutes.5
6 Open the pressure valve and allow the pressure to discharge. Unlock and remove the lid to find your fully cooked meal.
What sort is it?
I have a Sunbeam - I just throw in all the ingredients for say, a casserole, in the morning before work. Leave it on low heat setting, ensuring that I have a tin of tomatoes or a mug of beef or chicken stock to keep everything moist, put the lid on and about 7 hours later hey presto! The meal is ready.
No real preparation , I just use a normal meal recipe, and ensure i have enough moisture for the cooking as I would in the oven.
I am not sure if it is the same as the Durabrand model I have but mine heats the food to boiling and then cooks and lowers the temperature automatically, it is handy if you are late preparing a meal, for example 12 noon and you want it ready for 7pm? Hope this helps. High settings usually boil quickly and is handy to use for the first hour after that reduce the temperature and you can knock at least an hour off the cooking time. Or you can use high throughout the meal and halve the slow cooking time, however this uses much more electricity than on slow.
