6. Can I cook rice in the Pressure Pro?

These individual sub settings are programmed specifically for each category of rice cooking with time and pressure.  Press Rice/Risotto and then press Grain/Taste once for white, twice for brown and three times for wild rice.

7. Can you cook frozen foods in the Pressure Pro?

Yes. You can cook fresh or frozen foods with Pressure Pro using the same preset one touch buttons. However, frozen food might take 5-10 minutes longer.
8. How much liquid do I use in the Pressure Pro?

You can use liquid as required by the recipe, but keep in mind you must fill to a minimum of 1/5 liquid (water/stock/sauce) in the Pressure Pro to avoid food from sticking or burning.

 9. Will the food remain warm after the cooking time has been completed?

Yes, the unit will automatically switch to the Keep Warm function after the cooking time has been completed.

10. When is it safe to remove the lid once the cooking time has been completed?

There are two options. A) You can wait for the unit to de-pressurize naturally until the safety pin is released and the lid can be turned easily to open. B) You can turn the pressure valve to the “open” position for the unit to de-pressurize faster.  NOTE: CAUTION – steam pressure is extremely hot so always you something to protect your hand such as an oven mitt and always keep face and extremities away when the valve is turned.
11. Can you do canning in the Pressure Pro?

Yes.  All Pressure Pro sizes come with a canning/preserving feature for all your canning needs. We also include a canning recipe book with each unit. Our suggestion is to use 8qrt or 10qrt capacity for canning as these sizes can more jars at the same time compared to the 4qrt or the 6 qrt units.
