1-A test run would be great
Before using a multi-cooker especially for pressure cooking, make sure to first do a little test run. Now for a test run what you need to do is to add some water before actually putting the food inside. As it’s a new appliance in your kitchen, first test all the settings on the water and make sure that everything is working properly and that all the parts are fitting together well. You don’t want your first cooking session in the multi-cooker to be a bust so yes, this step is quite important.
If you have a big family and if you need to prepare massive meals then make sure to buy the right size of multi-cooker for that and even if you do have the right size, just make sure that you aren’t overfilling it whether it’s a slow cook or a pressure cook. Just try to keep it less than ⅔ full or else you can face some safety issues with the cooker.
3-Liquid is a must
It doesn’t matter if you are just steaming the food or literally pressure cooking it, just make sure that there’s always some water inside or any kind of liquid that’s appropriate for the food. Just never turn the multi-cooker on when it’s dry from the inside. Even a half cup of any liquid will work fine for the cooker.
4-Clean the pressure release device
A clogged up pressure releasing device can actually cause a lot of trouble and your cooker can burst open too which is the last thing you want to happen on the Earth. So, before cooking your meal at the pressure setting, make sure that the pressure releasing device isn’t clogged up and it’s all clean so that the pressure can easily get released. Also, don’t use the pressure setting for foods like oatmeal and , etc instead opt for slow cooking when you are dealing with food that sputters.
