Pressure cookers can be difficult to handle if you're new to cooking. Here's a simple guide to tackle all the pressure cooker problems that you might face!

A pressure cooker is one of the most common things in kitchens these days because it saves time and effort while cooking. They also come with certain problems which a user manual can’t solve.

It has become easy to troubleshoot the problem if the cooker is not shutting properly. This guide will walk you through expected issues with closing a cooker.

  • Gasket
    It’s a rubber seal present in the lid. Quite often it becomes loose or gets dislocated. Just remove it and place it back correctly.
  • Valve
    Check if it is properly placed in the right position. It helps to build proper pressure in the cooker.
  • Not to add
    To create a certain amount of pressure to cook, don’t make the liquid thick by adding flour.
  • Lock
    Make sure to lock the cooker properly.
  • Burner
    Put the cooker on the burner which is smaller in size or equal to its base.

Don’t let a faulty pressure cooker hinder your kitchen from preparing delicious food.

Top Tip

Open the cooker only after the steam pressure has naturally released.
