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.

    I have a betty g slow cooker model scf80. do i put water in the metal part before putting my crock in?


    I just read the manual for the betty "g" scf80 and all it says is "The stoneware liner when inserted in your Betty "g" slow crock cooker fryer is surrounded by air. This air is heated to the desired cooking temperature when the control knob is set to one of the two settings indicated for slow crock cooking. This Method of heating produces a slow and even rise in temperature that prevents scorching, less chance of overcooking, minimum loss of nutrients, less shrinkage and boiling away of juices.". My wife says no you should not as well, as she does not on our new model crockpot.

    Your crockpot heat unit is overheating. Return it to the store you purchased it at or contact the manufacturer. My Rival did that and I contacted the company and they sent me a new one.

    The ladies at church continually want to place water in the large roasters and then put the insert in place. I don't believe this is necessary or safe since the water and steam are trapped between the...


    Hi Jerry,
    The ladies are right.

    The appliance is called a steam table, and it operates on the same principle as a double-boiler. The design uses water as a thermal buffer between the heating element and the food, and ensures that the food is kept at food-safe serving temperature (varies by food, but typically over 140F, sometimes over 170F) but won't let the food get hotter than 212F so it doesn't burn or overcook the food.

    If it's splattering boiling water, then it's overfilled and you should reduce the amount of water, but only by a little bit. A steam table should NEVER be allowed to run completely dry.


    As for the steam getting you when you take out a pan -- that's true, and you do have to be very careful when you remove pans from a steam table.

    My Rival Crock Pot seems to cook a lot faster than it should. When the receipe calls for it to be on low, I put it in low but it seems to cook the food too quickly. What am I doing wrong?


    Probably, nothing. About 6 years ago the standards on these were changed, to increase low to 200 degrees instead of 180, high to 300. Things that took 6 hours can now take 4. If you are using older recipes, or recipes perfected in older pots, they will always overcook. You can check this by putting water in, covering, and checking with an instant read thermometer after 1 hour. If it is 200, there is nothing wrong with you or the pot.

    Like ou, we got one as well and they are great.
    If it's burning or overcooking on Low, it may be the heat control is malfunctioning. My wife made several suggestions...

    1. Take it back to where you bought it and exchange it for another.
    2. Call Rival Customer Service and ask them about it 1-800-557-4825
    3. Put a layer of vegetables (carrots, celery, potatoes, etc) on the bottom and meat on top of it, with fluid to keep it moist. Cook on low for shorter periods of time.

    Overcooks


    The older crocks did not seem to get as hot as the ones form the past 10 years. I have an old blue and white one that I use only to make yogurt, since it is not as hot. I do not believe you can adjust the newer ones, just use the low setting. Good luck.

    Cooks too hot/fast


    Hi Wendigo,

    Crock pots are not exact, they only have a "target" minimum temperature (to be sure they kill bacteria). It's possible you just have a relatively strong heating element.

    Also, remember that the boiling point of liquids changes considerably with your altitude, so if you're in a mountainous region you may be seeing "boiling" at a lower temperature than you expect.

    Cooks too hot


    It would SEEM that this pot has a nanufacturing problem, where the thermal switches, that actually cycle the unit off when it reaches a certain temperature, are faulty...right from the factory. Its common to get a run of faulty thermal units, and is often seen in Coffee Makers.
