  • Need Help With Cooks Essentials Pressure Cooker

    I bought a 5 qt. Cooks Essentials Pressure Cooker over a year ago and have never used it yet.

     

    I took it out a while ago and read all the instructions so I can start using it.  

     

    How do you remove the Anti-Blocking Case?   It says to pull up to remove, but I tried that and it won't budge.   Once it is removed are you suppose to leave it off or do you remove it to clean it and put it back on?.   I am not understanding some of these instructions.  

     

    If you have one of these can you please help me.   I really would like to start using it.   Thanks.

    There is a Yahoo group for pressure cookers and they can usually answer most everything.

    I've had an 8 qt CE for a couple of years and love it, but I'm sorry, I don't know what an anti-blocking case is. That Yahoo group can probably help you or "help" on QVC...

    Marie.....I hope I can help you some. I also purchased the same Pressure Cooker as you & let it sit in my cabinet for several months because the instructions overwhelmed me.

      Two weeks ago I thought to myself, this is rediculous, paying that much for something i wanted & not using it, so i started over.

      Take it one step at a time Marie & you will be pleased you did. The *Anti-Blocking Case.....You were probably like me & afraid you would break something. I think it only needs to be cleaned occasionally. Take your damp dishrag & pull up on it, it will come off, then can be snaped back into place. Don't be afraid of breaking it. I did NOT try to lift off the *Pressure Regulator Knob*. I think it is just showing in the picture what it is.

       I would suggest, on page 5 of your instruction book, start with *How To Operate Using Pressure Setting*     I started by cooking some Chicken Breast's & yesterday a Pork Roast. I used the *Brown Setting* then added liquid & pressure cooked it. It turned out great!

       Once you use it a couple of times Marie, you will be hooked!.....lol.....Good Luck & let me know how you done.   ~Sande~
