Add the water and beans. Put the lid on the cooker and tighten down. Turn on the heat and let the steam make a full plume before closing the valve. Lower the temperature to medium. Watch the gauge and when it reaches the correct pressure keep adjusting the heat to maintain the pressure for however many minutes the beans need to cook. When the time is up turn off the heat and let the cooker cool for a while. Ten minutes or so. Then slowly open the pressure valve when the pressure has reduced to a low level. If the pressure is still to high when you open the valve the water will be pulled out of the beans and the jars will only be half full of liquid. Once the pressure is down to zero, open the lid carefully because the jars are still hot and break easily. As the jars cool you will hear them pop. This means that they are sealed. Good luck.

I bought this pressure cooker and there was no manual in the box


Pressure cookers these days are pretty much foolproof. You generally use a small amount of water in the cooker, put in the food to be cooked, attach the lid firmly, turn up the heat until steam escapes the pressure valve, reduce heat so a small amount escapes, cook until done. Cooking time is greatly reduced in a pressure cooker because the vapor pressure above the water makes the water boil at a temperature higher than the usual 212 degrees Fahrenheit .
You can do an internet search for pressure cookers in general, or yours in particular. You didn't mention if yours is stove top or plug-in. You should search for the type yours is.

I have a Deni pressure cooker. 1 out of 10 times it works correctly. The last 2 times the top exploded off and spread liquid through the entire kitchen. Thank god nobody was injured. I have went through...


All pressure cookers should have a release valve. Be sure that is clean and allows a free flow of steam when the weight is not on it. Test it with just water in the pot. Heat the water until its just about to boil (with the lid off) then close and lock down the lid. Steam should start to come out of the release valve. If not .. clean it again.

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.

    Is a pressure cooker any good for cooking pulses and rice etc?


    Yes - I think it's a great way to cut down on the time needed for cooking. I particularly love using my pressure cooker for beans which I soak over night and then they only take 20 minutes in the pressure cooker. It's also great for rices like brown rice that take 40 minutes when boiling - it cuts the cooking time by half.

    I do NOT know how to use i.e keep at pressure without burning stuff. This is my daughter's Sambonet pressure cooker, it has a strange looking style of lid lock down that is part of the pressurisation...


    Pressure cookers rely on pressure and steam,
    Do a dry run first...well not dry but with just water, (no food) especially if it's an old cooker.
    Inspect for cracks or pinholes before you go ahead, a crack ANYWHERE in a pressure cooker makes it a bomb...or a flower pot.
    Ensure all safety devices like the pressure regulator and blow out plug are in good condition and not plugged.
    If some previous owner replaced the blow out plug with a bolt or something silly don't use the cooker till it's repaired.
    Bring your pressure cooker slowly up to pressure over medium heat with an inch or two of water in the bottom.
    When it starts to vent steam turn the heat down so the steam barely escapes, if it has a rocker weight it will wobble a couple times a minute.

    Slow gentle heat is the trick. A cooker will run for hours like that without boiling dry.

    A couple tips, use salt and spice sparingly, it's trapped in there and permeates the food.
    Be careful with foods that expand on cooking like rice and dried things, they can get up and block the vents if they reach the lid.

    BOILS OVER


    HELLO THERE
    I think that you might need to refer to the users manual on the operation of this rice cooker some cookers need to be shut off after a certain time to allow for the steam to cook the rice the rest of the way some may need less water some need more depends on the type of rice that makes a big difference ok?

    Sealed pot lid


    Heat the pot again -- the positive pressure inside will break the seal and allow the lid to come off.
