Trouble with PC
    #451509 - 11/08/01 11:01 AM (16 years, 3 months ago)

When AFOAF uses thier presto 22 quart pressure cooker it seems that the lid isn't doing it's job as it use to ... it's only been used about 5 times ... water keeps dripping like as if the rubber ring isn't being pulled down enough ... do they need a new lid or do they just need a new rubber ring? anyone anyone?

Yes you need a new ring- The PPi will not even be as high as it needs to be if the vacuume isnt achieved- Try looking in thrift shops for old PC's= Lots of times you can just lift the ring, and pay 50 cents for it- Becareful an exploding PC can kill you! If worse comes to worse, boil jars for an hour on a slow heat half submerged in water with a towel on the bottom of the pan

Watch out for the face!

I use a Presto. Nice, simple unit. It's normal for water to accumulate around the emergency release button (the little black rubber one on the lid) and roll off the top. It's also normal for some water to escape from the pressure regulator (the metal rocker) when it first starts up. These are results of the machine building up enough pressure to do the job.

If excessive amounts of water are coming out from under the lid where the gasket is, I'd say one of a few things might be happening:

1. The gasket isn't seated properly. If this is the case, you won't have pressure build up at all.

2. The gasket needs to be washed and reinserted. It's important to scrube the gasket and inside of lid (especially where the gasket is seated) with sopay water and rinse.
