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!

Steam release valve is not very tight....very loose. how do you install it?


I posted the same question, as I was very nervous about the loose fitting steam release valve. I thought for sure it was defective. I have never used a pressure cooker before and I think most people are nervous the first time. I finally called customer service and was told this is how it is supposed to be. It's supposed to be loose, and the lid won't fit tightly. Everything works out fine when you start the cooker. The valve tightens up and the lid fits securely. Keep in mind also that it takes quite some time for the cook cycle to begin. When it took so long to start the actual cooking, I thought yes, I was right, this one is defective. But I cooked a perfect turkey breast and am continuing on to make turkey soup. I hope I have helped, as there doesn't seem to be anybody who wants to share their knowledge with us newbies!

My boyfriend accidently tossed our instruction manual and I have no clue what my settings are I want to make a turkey roast what setting would I put it on?


On a thawed turkey it will take about 20 minutes per pound on 350 degrees. About 25 minutes per pound if you have a stuffed turkey.

New Rival 22qt. Roaster Oven


If you want to use it for food tomorrow, you need to burn it in tonight; 1 hour or longer at 400 degrees, outside but protected, to burn off the factory oils, etc. If you cook in it without doing this, you will ruin the food (and the atmosphere) with bad smells.

This turkey is really bigger than Rival recommends for this roaster, so check the size/fit tonight, also. You need an inch all around for best cooking.

I use 325, not 375 as the Rival manual suggests, 4 hours for an unstuffed 18 pounder.

How long to cook a turkey


It's a slow cooker so I put mine on low, when to work and about 9.5 hrs later, all came out fine. Only thing I should have done was put the cooker in big pan to catch the some of the drippings that came out. Experiment! Or call Hamilton Beach, they might have a different answer.
