Cooking foods in a pot with no lid and boiling them for ages destroys a lot of the nutrients in the food. Pressure cookers allow you to cook at very high temperatures for a much shorter amount of time and with a sealed lid, so there is no leaking of the vitamins etc in the food.

Most people find that cooking in the pressure cooking also produces really tender results - similar to braising.

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!

How do I can in my Philippe Richards 8quart pressure cooker


I'm sorry, you can't can in ANY electric pressure cooker. Stove-top pressure cookers can be used if the instruction booklet calls it a pressure cooker /canner AND it is at least 10qts (the minimum sizes tested for pressure canning by the USDA).

Myland Pressure Cooker Cookbook, Recipe Book? Do you know if there is one and where? Thank You !


I couldn't find any information about your pressure cooker online and that includes recipe booklets. However, you can use any pressure cooker recipe booklet for your pressure cooker. Here is a large collection of pressure cooker recipe booklets:

If you're feeling like you need a little extra guidance, use the Presto recipe booklets. Your Myland looks like a similar pressure cooker.

What is a 3rd generation electric pressure cooker?


"These are the latest types of pressure cookers available in the market. Also called as electric pressure cookers, they automatically regulate the set pressure inside the cooker. Using programmed microchips, the electric pressure cooker monitors several data inside the vessel while the food is cooking. This helps to adjust the pressure if it is too much or if it is too low. Third generation pressure cookers are increasing in popularity nowadays." (http://electricpressurecookers.net/)
