Question about Ultrex 259-218 Deep Fryer

1 Answer

Rust in bottom of 10/18 stainless steel pot

I have a set. The 10/18 stainless steel Ultrex pot is my problem. I boiled water for a large pot of tea and it tasted horrible. I tried 2 more times with the same result. Then I just boiled the water and it tasted worse than when I poured it in. After that, I did not use the pot. Then I needed to have a humidifier and used the pot to boil on the stove. Now there is rust on the side and bottom. What gives here? Isn't the coating like Teflon? What now?

Use DeBruce Polish to pacify the steel, we get DeBruce Polish at debrucepolish.com. We especially like it on Ceramic cook tops, refrigerators, stainless steel grills that rust- DeBruce removes it all. Debruce is ECO-FRIENDLY we love it, having replaced 6 products under our sinks DeBruce paid for itself.

Where can i find a manual for ultrex pressure cooker?


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.

    How do you make a proper cup of English tea using a teapot?


    There's more to making the tea than just shoving a few bags in a tea pot and adding hot water. Lovers of English tea believe that you need to warm the pot beforehand and let the tea brew before you start. Take a look at this article on the Yorkshire Tea website that gives a good run down of how to make tea.

    Bunn automatic coffeemaker leaks water after making a pot


    Tank and tank components should be delimed regularly
    depending on local water conditions. Excessive mineral build-up
    on stainless steel surfaces can initiate corrosive reactions resulting in serious leaks.

    The internal base and tea leaf basket are tarnished from the tea. How can I clean them?


    "The best tea pots are never scoured clean". Ask any retired tea drinker.The same with tea strainers. It improves the tea flavour to have a clean but not scoured out strainer. Have I saved you a job?
    If you still want to and if the items are stainless steel, a scouring pad and washing up water will do it.

    How to make marmalade


    Prep Time:45 minInactive Prep Time:24 hr 0 minCook Time:1 hr 0 min Level:Intermediate Serves:10 (8-ounce) jars Ingredients
    • 1 3/4 pounds oranges, 4 to 5 medium
    • 1 lemon, zest finely grated and juiced
    • 6 cups water
    • 3 pounds plus 12 ounces sugar
    • Special Equipment: 10 (8-ounce) canning jars with rings and lids, funnel, tongs, ladle, and 12-quart pot
    Directions Wash the oranges and lemon thoroughly. Cut the oranges into 1/8-inch slices using a mandolin, removing the seeds as you go. Stack the orange slices and cut them into quarters. Place the oranges into an 8-quart stainless steel pot. Add the lemon zest and juice and the water to the pot, set over high heat and bring to a boil, approximately 10 minutes. Once boiling, reduce the heat to maintain a rapid simmer and cook, stirring frequently, for 40 minutes or until the fruit is very soft.


    While the fruit is cooking, fill a large pot (at least 12-quart) 3/4 full with water, set over high heat and bring to a boil. Place 10 (8-ounce) jars and rings, canning funnel, ladle, and tongs into the boiling water and make sure the water covers the jars by at least an inch. Boil for 10 minutes. Turn off the heat, add the lids and leave everything in the pot until the marmalade is ready.
    Meanwhile, place a small plate in the freezer. Increase the heat under the orange mixture to return to full boil. Add the sugar and stir the mixture continually, until it reaches 222 to 223 degrees F on a deep-fry or candy thermometer, and darkens in color, approximately 15 to 20 minutes. You may need to adjust the heat in order to prevent boil over. Test the readiness of the marmalade by placing a teaspoon of the mixture onto the chilled plate and allowing it to sit for 30 seconds. Tilt the plate. The mixture should be a soft gel that moves slightly. If mixture is thin and runs easily, it is not ready.
    Remove jars from the water and drain on a clean towel. Place a canning funnel onto the top of 1 of the jars and ladle in the marmalade just to below the bottom of the threads of the jar. Repeat until all of the mixture has been used. The amount of marmalade may vary by 1 to 2 jars. Wipe the rims and threads of the jars with a moist paper towel and top each with a lid.


    Place a ring on each jar and tighten.


    Return the jars to the pot with boiling water, being certain that they don't touch the bottom of the pot or each other. (If you don't have a jar rack, try a round cake rack, or metal mesh basket. Even a folded kitchen towel on the pot bottom will do in a pinch.) Add additional water if necessary to cover the jars by at least an inch. Boil for 10 minutes. Using canning tongs, carefully remove the jars from the water, place in a cool dry place and allow to sit at room temperature for at least 24 hours before opening. Once open, store in the refrigerator. Unopened marmalade will last for up to 6 months.
