Bought a new Ultrex II 6-quart non-stick pressure cooker
Can anybody help me? i Bought a new Ultrex II 6-quart non-stick pressure cooker but it didn't come with a manual or recipe booklet. Can anyone help me find one, or send me one, at my expense?
I searched on the internet but found mostly discouraging reviews about the cookware. Apparently, pre-seasoning the pan and hand-washing seems important. That's okay.
I also saw a recall on the 8-qt. pan - I hope the 6 quart pan is okay because I bought a second pan to put in my family's Yankee Swap at this weekend's Christmas party. Yikes. Any encouraging comments??? THanks so much.

Hi Sharon! If you want the seasonings to get all thru the meat, I would cut it into about 6 pieces. Add your seasonings and cook it for 20 - 25 minutes. I have been cooking for 50 years and bought one of the electric digital pressure cookers. Liked it so much I bought another one. I made a pork roast about 2 weeks ago and I cooked mine for 25 minutes, It was so tender I could pull it apart with dinner forks. The seasonings I used were fresh diced onions ( 1 med) 2 cloves fresh garlic diced, salt and pepper to taste. 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.
