Hi the exhaust valve releases built up pressure created while cooking. There are 2 settings on mine. I have an InstaPot. When you cook on Pressure Cook put valve in closed posistion. Turn it left until it drops down. Food will cook for example, chicken with 1/2 cup chicken broth on pressure cook for 10 min then when done, pressure will come out on it own even with valve closed and dropped down, and food still cooks during this time. It will beep when ready. You can always open valve manually but remember it’s super hot steam and will burn you so lay a folded tea towel over top of valve then with wooden spoon tap valve into forward release and all the steam will release. Once this happens you can turn lid and open. You need all steam released either manual or automatic before opening lid.

Popcorn can be turned blue by using a blue popcorn salt while popping it with coconut oil. It will be regular flavored.

Or if you have caramel coating equipment, you can use the unflavored base mix with the Pina Colada flavor, and add blue food coloring at the end of the cooking cycle.;

The 1 hr unplug is your answer. The machine is in the middle of a cycle, so it can't accept other instructions. It has to be cleared.

Take the fuse out and it will have the amperage on it. Then you can visit an electronics outlet or electrical retailer.

The fuse is not cheap!

What is the model number of the fryer? If this is a new fryer, take it back to the store you purchased it from and get a replacement. If it is older, let me know the model number and I can probably find the cap online for you.

Hobart motor running backwards
Got called out on a single phase mixer throwing sparks, and belts.
Found motor running backwards (single phase 230v) and a chit load of these hanging out.....

Not sure where those go, doesn't seem to be missing any parts on the stator. I pulled the head and fished these out, they were laying on the windings, and some were on the shelf of the mixer body like they were placed there on purpose. Customer says motor was rebuilt 6 months ago by a hobart dealer.

Any thoughts???

Would have to be the shading pole "winding" on the stator?
think a mixer is going to have a motor with higher starting torque. Are there brushes in the motor cause those look like part of a brush lifting mechanism on a repulsion start induction run motor.

What model is it?

mixer with belts. Is it a 1460?

ALWAYS 1 part rice to 2 parts water or stock by volume.

Tupperware Microwave Rice Maker
This rice cooker is everything it promises to be. In fact it is so good at its job that people love it! I am sometimes asked questions about its use and what can be cooked in it, how long rice and grains need to cook and if it is easy to clean, so I am sharing the package insert that comes with the rice cooker with you to answers those questions.

Finally, perfect rice every time. With the Tupperware® Microwave Rice
Maker you can cook almost any type of rice and/or grain fast, easy, and
virtually mess free. By cooking and serving in one container, you can
save time, energy and space in your kitchen.

Key Features and Benefits
• The Tupperware® Microwave Rice Maker is easy to use. Simply fill
the base with the ingredients, close securely and place in the
• Cook and serve in the same container.
• Leftover rice and/or grains can also be stored in the refrigerator
and re-heated in the microwave as needed. Note: The cover is not
liquid tight.
• The Microwave Rice Maker comes in three parts: Base, Insert and
Cover. Assembly instructions are conveniently etched on the Insert.
• The Microwave Rice Maker features a unique double cover that
collects the foam created during cooking and channels it into the
recessed area of the cover, then drains it back into the base. Your
microwave stays clean and safe from spills.
• Maximum fill for rice and water located on the outside of the base.
• The cover handles fold down and lock on the base, giving you a solid
grip when removing hot rice from the microwave.
• For best results, keep rice and water within the guidelines marked on
the container and use the correct power levels and cooking times for
your microwave.
• Makes up to 4 cups of cooked rice.

To Use
• Fill the base with rice first and then add water, paying attention to the
maximum fill line. To avoid boiling over, do not exceed maximum
• Place the insert on to the base with the rimmed side up.
• Line up the handles of the lid with the handles on the side of the base.
Snap the handles in place by folding down and “clicking” the handles
of the cover on the handles of the base to lock them in place.

For Best Results
• Rinse the rice unless otherwise stated on the packaging.
• Use cold water.
• When cooking with salt (1 tsp.) add 2 – 4 minutes of cooking time.
• Allow rice to stand 5 minutes before serving.
• Fluff the rice after cooking with a plastic non-scratch Tupperware

Cooking Guidelines for 4 servings:
All Rice and/or Grain needs to stand for at least 5 minutes before
servings unless otherwise noted below.

• The Microwave Rice Maker is safe for temperatures between
32° - 248°F/ 0° - 120°C.
• Do not use in the freezer and do not exceed 248°F/ 120°C.
• Do not cook rice without water.
• Do not add fats, oils, or liquids that contain fat such as milk. Use only
water for cooking rice.
• The Microwave Rice Maker is not suitable for making risotto or rice
• Do not use abrasives or sharp utensils to avoid scratching.
• Respect the maximum fill line. Do not overfill to avoid boil-over. For
rice with a high starch content, cook small quantities.

• Always use oven mitts when removing cooked rice from the
microwave oven.

• Dishwasher safe.
• Refrigerator safe.
• Rinse the entire container immediately after use with cold water to
