FAQs / Troubleshooting

Pressure Cook: Pressure cooking is the process of cooking food under pressurized steam and liquid in a sealed vessel. High pressure helps to limit boiling and create higher temperatures, which cook foods faster than other cooking methods. This cooking mode is the recommended method for foods that are unlikely to overcook, such as soups and stews, or for foods you wish to cook quickly. Most foods cook under high pressure, which helps to break them down and cook faster. Foods that are sensitive to overcooking (like rice, pasta, and eggs) cook better with low pressure. 

Slow Cook: Slow cooking is a method used to cook foods slowly over a long period of time using low, steady and moist heat. With slow cooking, recipes that call for High temperature usually cook in 4 – 6 hours, while recipes that call for Low temperature usually cook in 8 – 10 hours.  

Saute/Sear: Use the Saute/Sear mode like you would use a skillet or saute pan on the stove. (Except you won’t have another pot or pan to clean!) Searing (or browning meat) prior to slow cooking or pressure cooking helps develop and enhance flavors. We recommend setting the temperature to High while searing. Sauteing veggies or infusing herbs and aromatics into broths before cooking is another great way to boost your recipes. We recommend setting the temperature to either Low or Medium while sauteing. 

Keep Warm: Keep Warm can be used as its own mode to keep foods warm or to reheat foods like soups, stew and warm beverages. When Keep Warm is used at the end of the cooking process, the timer will count up to a maximum of 8 hours. Once 8 hours is reached, the appliance will automatically shut off.
