do-over: pressure cooker editionPosted: October 6, 2014
Perhaps you remember as a kid asking for a “do-over” when you didn’t do something as well as you could have. As adults we certainly have those times when we’d like a do-over. At least I do.
At the end of July I wrote about how my Cuisinart CPC-600 electric pressure cooker would not come up to pressure and how replacing the sealing ring did not solve the problem.
I won’t go through all the machinations as to why, and machinations there were, but last week I decided to give it another go. I did a water test. A water test is what the folks over at the Yahoo! Pressure Cooker group call a process wherein you put a measured amount of water into the cooker, bring it up to pressure, release the pressure, and confirm that the water loss is minimal.
My pressure cooker is fine. It works beautifully. It turns out that I was turning the lid the wrong way to try to lock it. Replacing the sealing ring was in fact what my PC needed. Complete brain lapse on my part. I want a do-over of when I tried to lock the pressure cooker after replacing the sealing ring.
Of course do-overs are not possible in the space-time continuum in which we live, but what I can do is get back to using my pressure cooker.
