I am worried that my Pressure Cooker is going to explode! Quick Replies Please
    #3945933 - 03/20/05 09:20 PM (12 years, 5 months ago)

I dont want to die so please help. My "gently used" presto 6 quart from thrift town looks perfect. The black ring has no cracks and it looks good.

I attached the lid on to the bottom with about 2 inch's of water in the bottom for a dry run.

It was kinda hard to put the lid on but not too hard. Then after putting the stove on medium high, a lil black thing poped up and starting releasing steam. A few drops of water came out on the sides of the cooker.

It made some weird noises. I was kinda worried. The rocker never started rocking. A lil bit of steam came out of the sides.

When i turned the stove off, i touched the rocker and it started releasing a shit load of steam.

So on new pressure cookers, does a very small amount of steam come out the sides and a lil bit of water?

I want to do another drunkin batch of jars, so please help me.

ya they do that it will seal up you should wait till a little steam starts to come out of the top then put the rocker on there

No he doesn't...  That black stopper is a cheap release valve kinda thingy.  If you press down on it it'll release the pressure.

Photoguy, like sludge said, what you are describing is normal.  Reason being is that you didn't actually get your PC all the way pressurized.  You can leave the rocker on there right from the start, and put your temp on med-high to high.  While it's building up pressure, you might get a couple drops of water or some steam out of the sides as well as the rubber stopper release.  But once it gets fully pressurized that'll all seal up and the rocker will start to go nuts and be really loud.  This is when you should turn down heat to where the rocker is just barely letting any steam out... This is when you start your timer... GL bro :stoned:

Stop experimenting half way through your first grow. Grow it to maturity, watch it, learn from it. Do this a few times then experiment with different ideas and figure out what works best for you.

by "stopper" do you mean the auxilliary release valve on top of the lid
or the rubber gasket that goes between the lid and the bottom?

Well, its all good folks, that was last night and I didn't die or anything. I started out with the jiggler on, instead of letting it build up then putting it on, that was the only thing i did wrong. Thanks for the help.
