From the point of view of the pressure cooker, there shouldn't be any problem at all provided you follow the pressure cooker instructions.

From the point of view of the stove, the only thing you might want to watch out for is point loading - some older pressure cookers can get a bit domed at the bottom. On a flat surfaced stove, this will concentrate all the weight of what is after all quite a heavy pot onto a small part of the stove top. If the bottom of the pressure cooker is still nice and flat, I don't see any problem.

How do I can in my Philippe Richards 8quart pressure cooker


I'm sorry, you can't can in ANY electric pressure cooker. Stove-top pressure cookers can be used if the instruction booklet calls it a pressure cooker /canner AND it is at least 10qts (the minimum sizes tested for pressure canning by the USDA).

Pressure cooker is not heated on induction cooker


Likely the pressure cooker base is not induction-compatible. This is the case with all aluminum pressure cookers and some older stainless steel models. Your cookware store will have a small metal plate that you can put on your induction burner to heat non-induction compatible cookware.

I do NOT know how to use i.e keep at pressure without burning stuff. This is my daughter's Sambonet pressure cooker, it has a strange looking style of lid lock down that is part of the pressurisation...


Pressure cookers rely on pressure and steam,
Do a dry run first...well not dry but with just water, (no food) especially if it's an old cooker.
Inspect for cracks or pinholes before you go ahead, a crack ANYWHERE in a pressure cooker makes it a bomb...or a flower pot.
Ensure all safety devices like the pressure regulator and blow out plug are in good condition and not plugged.
If some previous owner replaced the blow out plug with a bolt or something silly don't use the cooker till it's repaired.
Bring your pressure cooker slowly up to pressure over medium heat with an inch or two of water in the bottom.
When it starts to vent steam turn the heat down so the steam barely escapes, if it has a rocker weight it will wobble a couple times a minute.

Slow gentle heat is the trick. A cooker will run for hours like that without boiling dry.

A couple tips, use salt and spice sparingly, it's trapped in there and permeates the food.
Be careful with foods that expand on cooking like rice and dried things, they can get up and block the vents if they reach the lid.
