Questions About My PC...
    #1562788 - 05/20/03 01:51 PM (13 years, 8 months ago)

Hi, I got a PC at Wal-Mart about a week ago, and I've been testing it, first at 10 PSI, then at 15PSI

I have a few questions, it's a rocker, but I was wondering if it REALLY had to rock, because it's frickin' loud and scary... lol!

Like... alot of steam comes out of the pressure guage control (rocker), and I was wondering if I would run out of water within the hour or so I plan on PCing my jars.  I plan on using aliens popcorn tek deal, and I've read the entire post on it in Advanced forum.

So... lets c... does it really need to stay at a constant rocking motion in order for me to consider it to be at 15 PSI?  What would happen if it did run out of water, as I was PCing?

Thanks alot for your help. :laugh:

No it doesn't have a gauge, in the manual it calls the "rocker" the "pressure control gauge"

It just rocks to let me know when it's at 15 PSI. hehe

Did it come with more than one "rocker"? Each one is wieghted to a specific pressure. When that pressure is reached , say 15 psi, it will begin to rock back and forth. This is necessary only to let you know that the optimal pressure has been reached, at which point you should lower the heat until the "rocking" motion is slow, and controlled. As long as the gauge is moving, your PC will be kept at the desired pressure.

Ok cool... its kind of a subjective thing...

It came with three weights, the original one that screws on for 5 PSI, then one more that fits on that for 10, then another that fits on that for 15, I know its at 15 PSI, I read faqs and everyting, and I've PCed with it twice, once on 10, and again at 15...

Me hungry... me go eat now...

I set mine to where it rocks a little every 10-20 seconds and then it stops again. It isn't as scary if you get it to do this steadily. This way I know it's hovering around 15 psi, but it isn't spitting out steam all the time. Seems to work for me.

Using a PC the first time can be somewhat scary. But, afoaf has one with a gauge and a rocker and likes the rocker to be steadily rocking. Also, don't worry about the water as long as you put at least 1'' in it.

Its supposed to be loud and scary, I have the exact same one (8qt Mirro) put on all the weights and turn stove up full blast until steam starts coming out and then lower it until its just a shu-shu-shu-fushushu-shu sound
