Question about Crock Pots & Slow Cookers
We were given model Ultrex 07714K (looks like fryer/cooker) & Ultrex
07708 (8 qt. cooker) -- they are like new, but no instructions. We don't know how much pressure these things hold -- there is a red button that pops up but don't know what/when. Is there a resource anywhere so we can use them?
Why is it so hard to find where I can buy a replacement crock pot insert for my rival ScvP600. It has a crack in it. Is it like a timex, where I should just throw it all away after a few uses?

I found numerous recipes on 'About.com' Type in the receipe that you are wanting and add pressure cooker to the search. I have also found recipes on other search engines.

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.
