5 After browning the roast at a 500°F temperature in the oven for 15 minutes, reduce the oven temperature to 325°F. To figure out the total cooking time, allow about 11-12 minutes per pound for rare and 13-15 minutes per pound for medium rare.
Really, you need a probe thermometer. Leave it to rest for 15 minutes after you take it out of the oven, loosely tented with foil. I am a chef!
Cover with the lid and turn the heat down to its lowest setting. Leave it alone - once the lid is on, set the timer and go away! If you lift the lid and let the steam out you can slow down the cooking process, and rice should always be cooked as briefly as possible. Give white rice 15 minutes and brown rice 40 and use a timer - overcooking is what spoils rice. The best way to test if it is cooked is simply to bite a grain. Another way is to tilt the pan and, if liquid collects at the edge, it will need a couple more minutes' cooking.
Sounds like door switch issues. Thinking the only thing you did was open and close the door, not change programing or anything. If you have an issue with a door switch and it doesnt close right after opening and closing the door( when you stir), the unit thinks the door is open so it will not run. Once the bad connection cools down it contracts and reconnects and the unit will work again. Frequently you can find which switch is doing that if you just look at the switches and see if you have any browning inside of the plastic insulators over the wires that push onto the switch terminals. If the connecton is bad it will get hot that will brown the plastic protector
To cook brown rice takes about twice as long at white rice. Usually there are microwave instructions on the rice package. If the instructions specify a certain power, like 1000W, you can look on the back of your microwave or in the instruction booklet to see what yours is. Good luck, genetuck
Hi I have the same model - I absolutely love it. The only problem is that the seal is broken and because Breville no longer supply parts I'm using it more as a slow cooker! It's pretty simple to use: The basics: 1. Pull the handles apart (note you must have the 'pressure lock - the only sliding knob on the lid) in the 'unlocked position'. 2. Set the temperature on Max (only until the meat, onions etc are brown, then turn down to 1 or 2- just enough to keep the orange button 'popped' on the top of the machine 3. turn the timer (bottom dial on the front of the cooker) to an hour (you can always turn the dial more if needed, but not reduce time) by the time you've browned meat & chopped veges, etc that will be about 10-15 gone. I've never had it pressure 'cooking for more than an hour for anything' 3. re timing - casserole takes about 40 min from when the orange button on top 'pops' up (ie. steam build up enough pressure to cook quickly) 4. don't over fill - there's a little cast iron bump about an inch from the 'top' inside the cooker - that's about the max. 5. if you're cooking meat dishes have the dial on the top 'pressure release dial' on 3 - lighter dishes (e.g. soups) have on 1 or two. 6. until you get use to it keep an eye on the orange button - you get to know what temp to put it on by how much steam is released - it it's hissing away, turn the temperature down. 7. makes great casseroles, rissotto, soups (even with dried beans, only about 40 min) if you ever find a supplier for seals, post an answer!
If a Goldstar, LG or Zenith MV1610 or MV1608 is running but not seeming to heat a load placed in center of turntable, its probably because the "stirrer" intended to spread microwaves generated by the magnetron around the cook chamber is stuck so that most all the heating is directed toward the back and top rather than the center of the cook chamber.This usually occurs after cooking for longer than a minute with no load in the cook chamber - as when a model w/o a timer (such as a MV1608) is intentionally operated in cook mode to serve as a kitchen timer, or when a model with a timer function (such a MV1610) is accidentally operated for longer than a minute w/o any load.Before assuming the magnetron (usually warranted for 5, 8 or even 10 years) or other high voltage component such as diode or capacitor needs to be replaced, try “cooking” a 16 oz pyrex cup of water at full power on the outer edge of the turntable for 2-3 minutes - which usually reactivates the "stirrer" and restores normal cooking function.
Sounds like the Magnetron may have collapsed. Probably not worth repairing. Check for burnt/browned components on circuit board/s. Burnt wires, insect or ant damage or soiling. Magnetron is the large-ish square metal object with lots of heat-sink fins on it. Check for discolouration. If nothing obvious, it's probably stuffed, If something is obvious, it's still stuffed, but it may be repairable.:::Spiceweasel.au
