Vent Weights
    #1662737 - 06/25/03 10:31 PM (15 years, 2 days ago)

Hey, I've got a 4 liter Hawkins pressure cooker that has a vent pipe-and the vent weight for maintaining pressure. In my instruction manual for it it says that pressure has been reached once the vent weight starts to rock or jiggle and you then turn down the heat until you get a nice steady rocking motion. How much should this rock? Fairly noticeably? Or very slightly?

You will know when it's ready, there is a distinct sound that it will make. You really want to get to know your pc. It could become your best friend.... J/K :tongue2:

Oh yeah, good luck :grin:

MrSleep have you took a look at the PC FAQ? Tons of great info in it. My friend used it the very same night he bought his PC!

The weight should begin to rattle around 15 psi...but you should definitely read up, and be safe. I have heard scary stories about those things blowing up! heh :smile:

Yeah I looked at the FAQ-I usually do, but that's why I'm posting. It doesn't answer my question really. How much should it rock? Should it rock a lot? Or just tremble a little? Anyone able to inform me better?

I have a pressure cooker straight out of the sixties, no manual or anything. When I want to make jelly, I just put that weight on the release valve and turn the heat on. Eventually the pressure builds up and once it hits the desired PSI I drop the heat.

The weight should rock just enough to release a small bit of steam. Its not a violent rocking that's to much pressure. The sound that SS is talking about is very distinct and you will get to where you can tell the level from the livingroom while your laughing at something on Everybody Loves Ramond. Just watch for a gental rocking and if there is a dark background you can actually see a tiny burst of steam shooting from under the weight.

The above statement has been a figment of my imagination. Niether the statement nor the writer is real, we are both fiction & should not be taken seriously in any way
