regulating pressure cooker
    #4309005 - 06/17/05 10:27 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

i'm looking @ big pressure cookers online and want to know is it normal to adjust the psi with the flame ? my small one has a weight that regulates the psi. the larger ones only have a guage on top. is this normal? :stoned: :mushroom2: :evil:

Yes it's normal. No matter which pc used if you leave the flame on to high the weight will jiggle non stop the the safety valve will blow.

Whatever brand it is, it better have some type pressure relief valve on top. Otherwise it is a time bomb - waiting to happen.

AA Sterilizers & older model AA's don't have a weight regulator, they use one or two toggle release valve(s) - that also functions as a an over-pressure safety valve. Which will release steam at around 26 PSI.

The weight doesn't actually regulate the pressure on most models it will if the heat is left on too high keep pressure down below the target psi (on most models)through excessive giggling. The better units the weight should only giggle around 4 times a minute this will allow pressure to build up properly. Which ever one you get read the instructions closely. GL and remember all PC's have a safety pressure release valve/plug.

That excessive jiggling also evaporates water out of the content of the pressure cooker much faster than normal. That includes the bottom water. You want the weight barely jiggling at all or just hissing really loudly. Don't crank it up on those weight jiggle types.
