  3.  Lift the lid off the pot. (see Fig. E)
  4. Take out the inner pot and put in food and liquid. The total amount of food and liquid should NEVER exceed the maximum level marking on the inner pot.
  5. Place the inner pot inside the outer pot. (see Fig. H) Rotate the inner pot slightly to ensure good contact between the inner pot and the heating element.
  6. Place the lid on the pot, rotate it anti-clockwise towards the lock icon until the lid locks in place. The arrow mark ▲on the lid and main unit should align. The pin (22) should not be visible from the side of the lid. (see Fig. D)

LID OPENING

Some residual heat and steam may be released when opening the lid on the pressure cooker which may cause injury. Protect your hands with oven mitts and use the lid to shield and direct steam away from your face and hands when opening the lid.

Safe lid release:

  1.  Wait until the pressure cooking program has been completed or press the “Keep Warm/ Cancel/- ” key to terminate the program.
  2. Unplug the pressure cooker and remove the power cord.
  3. Allow the cooker to cool down and wait until the safety valve (1) drops down. Depending on the volume of food and liquid inside the cooker, this may take 12 to 30 minutes.
  4. Once the safety valve has dropped down, hold the lid handle and rotate the lid clockwise towards the unlock icon, until the lid is disengaged, and then lift the lid open. (see Fig.E)

Attention: Do not open the lid until the pressure inside the pot is completely released. See Important Safeguards.

Quick-release:

WARNING! Burn hazard! A burst of steam will be given off vertically from the center of the pressure regulator

  1.  To speed up the cooling down process, place a wet towel on the lid.
  2. Slowly open the pressure regulator valve by turning the valve anti-clockwise towards the steam symbol.
    The steam symbolanko KY-318 Pressure Cooker User Manual  & troubleshooting 10 should align with the arrow ▲. (see Fig. G)
  3. Wait until the safety valve has dropped down, hold the lid handle and rotate the lid clockwise towards the unlock icon, wait until the lid is disengaged, and then lift the lid open. (see Fig.E)

Attention: Keep hands and face away from any escaping steam. It is very hot and can cause scalding.
See Important Safeguards.

Note: A Quick Release is not suitable for food in large liquid volume or with high starch content (e.g. porridge, congee, soup, etc.) because food may be expelled with steam. In this case, use the Safe Lid Release method instead.

PRESSURE COOKING

  1. Follow the steps under Before each use and Cooking preparation
  2. Ensure that the exhaust valve is in a closed position. (see Fig.F)
  3. Press a cooking mode key, the corresponding indicator light illuminates and the default cooking time appears in the LED display.
  4. Press the “PRESET” button if you like to delay the start of cooking. See Functions Keys “TIMER/PRESET/+”.
  5. The cooking time will flash. Wait for a few seconds until the blinking stops, and the unit will start cooking.
  6. Within a few minutes, steam will start coming out for a minute or two when the safety valve (1) pops up and seals the cooker. Within another minute or two the working pressure will be reached, and the countdown timer will begin.
  7. At any time, you can cancel the cooking program in progress and return to standby mode by pressing the “Keep Warm/Cancel/- ” key.
  8. When the program has finished, the cooker beeps and automatically enters the keep warm stage. The keep-warm function indicator light illuminates and “6666” can be seen on the display.
  9. Press “Keep Warm/Cancel/- ” to stop the program.
  10. Unplug the cooker from mains power and remove the power cord.
  11. To open the pot, see Lid Opening, Safe Lid Release. When opening the lid, the inner pot may appear to be stuck on the lid because a vacuum develops due to air cooling. Gently pull the lid up until the inner pot is released
