Question about Wolfgang Puck 5-Quart Electronic Pressure Cooker - Silver
I have used my pressure cooker twice now and it never seems to get up to temperature because quite a bit of steam escapes during the cooking process. In fact, when the food should be done after the recommended time, I never have to release any steam/pressure .Is it normal for steam to escape while cooking and if so...how much is normal? It appears as though something is not right with the lid or gasket?
That is what happened to mine and I notice it was not the gasket, but plastic lock on the inside of the handle, it broke. Why make is out of plastic and controlled with a spring? DuH? This controls locking the handle and also hold the small pressure valve done. This caused the steam to escape before item is cooked even if it's not 100% broke and lid still locks.
