It sounds like it might be overheating, or could have a short in the wiring. I recommend taking it back to the store, or the manufacturer.

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!

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.

Russel Hobbs RHNPC800P Slow cooker keeps blowing the thermal fuse. What would cause this???


two things, the thermostat allows the cooker to get too hot or the thermal fuse rated temperature is too low. Try get a thermal fuse with about a 10 deg higher rating.

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!

I bought Tefal 4 in 1 slow cooker last week and couple of first times it worked OK. Now when I set hours for slow cooking it brings the food to boil in about 6 minutes and then switched to keep warm mode....


I suspect that is the norm for slow cooking. The cooking temp is brought up and just maintained for the given time. Nothing wrong so :) . You wouldn't want the food to sit in liquid that slow in heating up. It's kinda like bbq'ing. You set the patio on fire and wait till the flames to subside before you put the hot dogs on. I think you are safe. :) - Ned I consulted with a crock pot fanatic, My Wife!

Need replacement thermal overload protector


Check the Radio Shack website. Match the temperature rating of the thermal fuse.

These can't be soldered in -- the heat will blow them -- they are best crimped in.

I try to set the time and temp and just keeps blinking


try to push and hold after you set the time and/or temp until it flashes the appropriate setting then stays solid

if there is a menu button.... time, hour... press till the right hour is on, min.... til the right min is on then menu or ok and either release or hold....

basiclly a process of elimination.

not sure if it will solve your issue. just giving you another option to try.

also unplug and wait 10 sec to let the slow cooker reset before you try again

let me know at sparkallen@aol.com
