Della 12 Quart 1600-Watt Electric Pressure Cooker Multi-Functional Timer Slow Cook XL Part number: 048-GM-48261 Unable to get this cooker to slow cook.


it is possible that you have misunderstood the instructions
for a slow cooker you have low medium and high
press slow cook and on low and in 8 hours the food is cooked
I see from your statements that you expect the cooker to be set on slow cook but cook at a high temperature fast
if it says slow cook --9 hours and the temp is 125 degrees , have you waited 9 hours to see if it is cooked as the slow cooking process is by the gradual build up of heat in the container that is not expelled by radiation to the air
in a pressure cooker , that build up of heat also builds up pressure and so it cooks better
other solution--- if it is not right return it for a warranty refund or if out of warranty , junk it and get a different make

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!

My Cuckoo CRP-HDP1010F pressure cooker seems to have lost its seal and won't pressure cook any more. We've cooked a lot more than rice in it, and it's become fairly messy--we're forever wiping up liquid...


1. it is best to replace the top-corner rubber seal before a year have passed, as a prevention measure to retain moisture and pressure (contact their official line or site, to verify this is the right part for your model):

:
2. if however you have used it extensively, and cooked more than rice in it : the metallic cover itself may have deformed (difficult to be verified visually by looking at it) in which case the whole top replacement will be considerable that it would be more efficient to buy a new one .
:
from your inquiry that it won't pressure-cook any more and it is getting messy : I would deduct it would be the latter case above .

Displays E2 and E4 (5 qt Wolfgang Puck pressure cooker - silver) what section is problem mechanical or electronic?


I think E2 means open circuit in thermocouple in center of bottom. E4 means no contact on pressure sensing switch at edge of bottom. Mine had E4 error. Took out switch and used fine sandpaper to clean contact points. Now it works fine.
Remove 3 screws in bottom. Remove bottom cover by turning it ~1/4" to clear tabs. Remove switch at edge of bottom with two blue wires going to it. Clean contacts and replace.

Do you use water in a slow cooker


Yes you do.
It will not be like a pan on the stove although, because a crock pot does not lose as much moisture because it has a better seal. So For example
Stew from a can already has enough moisture in it, so no water.
A meat roast will want about an inch of water or a can of soup. A crock pot uses lower heat than a stove plus moisture (like steam) to cook.
Enjoy the slow cooking adventure !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

How many pounds of sloppy joes can I fit in my five quart crock pot?


Well, that all depends on how dense a sloppy joe mixture you make. If you add pounds and pounds of ground beef to the mix and just the sloppy joe sauce, then it would be many pounds.

But as for a good rule of thumb, "A pints a pound the world around" In other words, if you're making sloppy joes from the pre-mixed cans, just weigh one 16 oz (1 pint) can and that's 1/2 quart.

If you're making it yourself, we're back to the whole density of your chosen ingredents.

However, I've done a little research for you and based on the density of cooked beef and converting the weight of that cooked beef into the 5 quart volume of your crockpot, I've come up with the following info for you.

Cooked Beef has a density 129.52 Ounces per Gallon (a technical measurement)

So based on that data (not including your sloppy joe seasoning/sauce and other add-ins), you should get approximately 10.12 Pounds of Sloppy Joe Mixture to fit into your 5 Quart Crockpot.

I would guess that the amount would be just slightly less, since you might want a little room for putting on the lid, etc., but you should get around 10 Pounds to fit easily in your 5 quart crockpot.

I hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

Defective part


To better address the problem with your nonstick pot... I need more information on the steps you have used to clean the pot and the extent of damage to the pot itself.

You indicated that the damage has occured between the pot and the inner surface of the cooker base? Is this a corrosive damage or a build up of material on the inner liner of the base?

Often times a build up of 'hard water' minerals accumulates on the inner surface due to condensation and occasional overflows from the foods being cooked. They can appear to be a type of fungus or mold.
