Question about Kitchen Ranges

1 Answer

Hi, I have purchased a pressure Cooker from Home Art, a retail store chain which has just recently ceased trading in South Australia. I have checked out the Stores in an effort to identify my pressure Cooker and the Bergner is identical. My problem is that there is no instruction booklet to provide advice as to how much water is needed to each Kilo of food to be cooked. I have used both the Hawkins and Namco pressure cookers in the past and each recipe book gives different amounts of water to use. As the Bergner has a very active steam release in it's operation I suspect that a fair amount of water would be used in order to avoid running out of water whilst cooking. Can you help me find out where I can obtain a booklet to set my mind at ease as this aspect is resulting in very little use of the cooker.

In such case, you can identify the amount of water by looking at the recipe booklet of Hawkins and Namco. I believe they don't have much difference when it comes to volume of water needed.

I just purchased a Cook's Essential 6 quart

Hi mnygreen3...
Yes, the steam will come out from under the "rocker" on the top of the pressure cooker, the "rocker" is the little part that sets on top of the vent of the pressure cooker to hold a certain amount of pressure inside of the cooker.
Please take time to rate me.

Lost screws for a De Longhi oil filled heater.

To whom it may concern
Yesterday, I communicated with one of your colleagues by the name of Ginko. He advised me to contact the factory in New South Wales, Australia by phone and e-mail.

I rang through and they weren't particularly helpful. They said call a service agent with the details of the product, I was supplied with a contact phone number. The service agent was unable to help me, they said they would call back and as yet they haven't.

I also had sent an e-mail to the the customer service reprentative for De Longhi, who responded the following day, and gave me a list of five outlets in Melbourne, which are able to order the part for me. I duly contacted the nearest supplier to myself, rang them and they said they will order the product (after taking down the product details and my home phone number) and will contact me when it arrives.

Thanks to Ginko for his time and help. I will wait to see the outcome of this. This is the most recent update to the situation.
