It's supposed to steam, then you turn down the heat and follow the recipes. You may also need a new sealing ring. :-)

SOURCE: Steam escapes from pressure cooker

That is what happened to mine and I notice it was not the gasket, but plastic lock on the inside of the handle, it broke. Why make is out of plastic and controlled with a spring? DuH? This controls locking the handle and also hold the small pressure valve done. This caused the steam to escape before item is cooked even if it's not 100% broke and lid still locks.

I bought this pressure cooker and there was no manual in the box


Pressure cookers these days are pretty much foolproof. You generally use a small amount of water in the cooker, put in the food to be cooked, attach the lid firmly, turn up the heat until steam escapes the pressure valve, reduce heat so a small amount escapes, cook until done. Cooking time is greatly reduced in a pressure cooker because the vapor pressure above the water makes the water boil at a temperature higher than the usual 212 degrees Fahrenheit .
You can do an internet search for pressure cookers in general, or yours in particular. You didn't mention if yours is stove top or plug-in. You should search for the type yours is.

Do I need to use the pressure lid or can I use the glass lid for cooking brown rice


You need to use the pressure lid, otherwise you are using the cooker like a normal pan. Here are step-by-step instructions, cooking times and water ratios for pressure cooking rice:

Steam is escaping


The valve should be seat to sealing. When the cooker is coming up to pressure it is normal for the steam to push oxygen out of the valve. Then, once it has reached pressure and the cooker starts to count down the cooking time the steam will stop coming out.

I just purchased a Cook's Essential 6 quart


Hi mnygreen3...
Yes, the steam will come out from under the "rocker" on the top of the pressure cooker, the "rocker" is the little part that sets on top of the vent of the pressure cooker to hold a certain amount of pressure inside of the cooker.
Please take time to rate me.

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!

Where can I get a copy of a Breville Express Cooker (EXC15) manual? I had a cooker given to me but alas no "how to use" instructions.


Hi I have the same model - I absolutely love it. The only problem is that the seal is broken and because Breville no longer supply parts I'm using it more as a slow cooker!
It's pretty simple to use:
The basics:
1. Pull the handles apart (note you must have the 'pressure lock - the only sliding knob on the lid) in the 'unlocked position'.
2. Set the temperature on Max (only until the meat, onions etc are brown, then turn down to 1 or 2- just enough to keep the orange button 'popped' on the top of the machine
3. turn the timer (bottom dial on the front of the cooker) to an hour (you can always turn the dial more if needed, but not reduce time) by the time you've browned meat & chopped veges, etc that will be about 10-15 gone. I've never had it pressure 'cooking for more than an hour for anything'
3. re timing - casserole takes about 40 min from when the orange button on top 'pops' up (ie. steam build up enough pressure to cook quickly)
4. don't over fill - there's a little cast iron bump about an inch from the 'top' inside the cooker - that's about the max.
5. if you're cooking meat dishes have the dial on the top 'pressure release dial' on 3 - lighter dishes (e.g. soups) have on 1 or two.
6. until you get use to it keep an eye on the orange button - you get to know what temp to put it on by how much steam is released - it it's hissing away, turn the temperature down.
7. makes great casseroles, rissotto, soups (even with dried beans, only about 40 min)
if you ever find a supplier for seals, post an answer!
