Trial of Pressure Cooker
Even if you have used a pressure cooker previously, take a trial run before cooking in your kitchen. This section will take you step-by-step through your trial run in about 30 minutes.
Remove label and wash cooker, removing any adhesive with baby or vegetable oil. Read The benefits of Pressure cooking, Important Safeguards, Parts of a United Pressure Cooker and Basic Product Information. Identify parts. Remove and place the pressure regulator on the steam vent, the sealing ring on the lid curl. Close and open the pressure cooker a few times.
Pour 2 cups water in cooker body. Add 1 teaspoon (5 ml) lemon juice or vinegar (not for anodised cookers) to prevent discolouring the cooker. Remove pressure regulator from steam vent. Look through steam vent and ensure it is clear.

Check and adjust the seating of the sealing ring on the lid curl by patting down snugly. Close cooker. Place cooker on high heat.
