How to slowly release the steam
- IMPORTANT: This method is recommended for food with skins (such as sausages, chicken and some fruit) and foods with large liquid volume or high starch content such as porridge, soup, pasta, rice, fruit and grains, and also delicate foods such as meats and potato, which can trap air and cause the food to foam and expand which may cause hot food to splash out after the lid is removed.
Always check the User Manual for guidance on the safe use of your Pressure King Pro before you do any cooking.
Remember that you will be working with hot liquids and steam, so always ensure that all the safety requirements are fully in place before you start any cooking and please exercise care and caution as you follow the Steps in this guide.
Always wear oven gloves and an apron to protect against any splashing of hot food and steam.
Also refer to the Safety information Topics in this guide for information.
