I have this slow cooker. It uses the same cord that most every cooking appliance uses. (older coffee percolators, deep fryers, popcorn poppers, etc.) You probably already have one sitting around in your house. If not you can pick one up at a hardware store or walmart.

SOURCE: repalcement handles for Rival slow cooker crock pot model scu600

My black handle broke off, too. I went to the hobby store and got a wood ball not too big and drilled a hole in it the same diameter as the screw that held in the original handle. Voila, I now have a wood ball knob handle on my crock pot lid. You just install it and cscrew it on just like you do a new knob on a kitchen cabinet.

I have an electric ultrex pressure cooker. What temperature should I set it to cook a 4.25 pounds corned beef


It goes by minutes under steam pressure. You likely will need about 1 hours in the pressure cooker to make it tender.

Should the lid be a tight fit or loose


Most crock pots are made of porous ceramic and is relatively brittle. It is glazed on all sides (except the bottom usually), to make it hold liquids without absorption. The lids, usually glass or thermoplastic, sit of top, but do not usually fit tightly as this could crack the crock. Also, it is not a pressure cooker, so you want excess steam to vent. The lid just keeps the heat inside and allows condensation to drip back into the crock, reducing the speed at which the fluids cook off, thus the term slow cooker.

Why is steam and water coming out of the safety valve of the Russel Hobbs preasure cooker


When a pressure cooker is working normally, some steam and a little water is supposed to come out of the valve, that's how you know it's up to pressure.

Steam is escaping from floating valve


It is supposed to. If steam did not escape it would explode

Steam is coming out from the floating lock pin but the timer is counting down. should steam be escaping while cooking under pressure?


Yes, otherwise the cooker would blow up from the pressure. This was a common problem with pressure cookers used on a stove from many years ago. Hope this helps!

Pressure cookers are only slightly more complicated than crock pots. In fact, you can think of them as the opposite of Crock pots. Where a crock pot needs 2-3 times as long to cook something, the pressure cooker needs only 1/2 to 1/3 of the time.

These are not that complicated and haven't changed in the last 50 years. The only real hard part is being sure is doesn't explode; not that hard: don't cook things that would foam, like pasta or potatoes. Just read some recipes on the internet or get a recipe book at a bookstore, used book store (super-cheap)or the library. My best advice is to make sure you use the lowest possible heat that still allows steam to escape at a whisper. That will keep things from burning (or scorching) on the bottom, which can give a harsh taste and make clean-up more work. Just do it.

Why doesn't my cover fit tightly? 5.5 Qt Rival Crock Pot - lid does not fit tightly and hot water is bubbling and spitting out of the crock pot making a mess and an unsafe situtation...help! Is this a...


There's nothing you need to do differently except place the cooker where a little splashing won't hurt anything. This is typical of all crock pots. The cover fits loosely because it must allow steam to escape. When water turns to steam, it expands. If not allowed to escape, the steam pressure would explode the vessel. The simplest and cheapest way to let the steam escape is to let the lid lift freely. Some of the steam re-condenses into water as it escapes, and then it sputters and splashes as more steam comes out. They could make a more complex system to control the mess, but then a crock pot would be bigger, more expensive, and harder to wash. I know this might not be the answer you hoped for, but it's a truthful answer to your question so I hope you'll rate it accordingly.

Crock pot use


You should keep the lid on as much as possible. You are correct; once you open the lid, the liquid inside can quickly lose temperature at a rate of 10-15 degrees per minute.

Additionally, taking the top off allows steam to escape, which reduces the point of cooking in a slow cooker (cooking in a relatively closed system, with the steam condensing back to water and flowing back into the broth).

It's not doing a whole lot to the flavor (aside from causing the stew to thicken with the loss of water), but it is definitely causing the cooking to take longer than it should.
