It's completely normal to not know where to start when you begin to pressure cook. These recipes were all created with first-time pressure cooker users in mind. After completing a water test, these recipes are the perfect place to start!
A few additional tips to get you started:
- It can take 5-20 minutes for a pressure cooker to come to pressure and start cooking, depending on the amount of food in the pot. Make sure to count that into your cook time if you are on a tight schedule.
- Here at Mealthy we all cook with two separate silicone gasket rings for the lid depending on the food. One works great for savory: onions, garlic, and strong flavors. The second works great for neutral flavors like rice, cheesecakes, and yogurt. We replace our silicone rings about once every 6 months.
- Silicone gasket rings can be soaked in vinegar to reduce smell and should be wiped down after each use.
- Make sure to put your inner pot in place before dumping in food. Mealthy gets calls about this mistake daily, please double and triple check your pot it in there to keep your unit in good shape!
- MultiPot not working? Double-check that your cord is plugged into the back of the pot!
