Product Description

Product Description

Pressure cooking will enable you to produce healthy meals in a fraction of the time normally taken, pulses do not need overnight soaking, the quick cooking in a minimum of water retains vitamins, ‘tough’ meat is a thing of the past. Full meals can be cooked in one pan – only one pan to wash up

These instructions relate to the following model Smartplus 3L Aluminium Coated Cooker

Not dishwasher safe

Caution: it is important that you read these instructions carefully before using your cooker.

General rules for pressure cooking – Safety notice

Ensure that your cooker is suitable for the heat source that you are using.

Match the size of your cooker base to the size of your hob/ring.

Always follow the hob manufacturers instructions.

Do not place the appliance in a heated oven.

Do not touch hot surfaces.

Do not allow gas flames to spread up the side walls of your cooker.

Extreme caution must be used when moving the appliance containing hot liquids.

Do not let children near the pressure cooker when in use.

Do not allow the handles to extend over the front edge of hob and position away from other burners to keep them from getting hot.

When cooking doughy food, gently shake the cooker before opening the lid to avoid food ejection.

Check handles and if necessary re-tighten.

Do not place a dry/empty cooker on a heat source. Always ensure a minimum of 300 ml (1/2 pt) liquid is in the cooker.

Do not overfill the cooker – (See quick start user tips for other tips).

Always check the vent tube for clogging before use. Hold the lid up to light and look through the vent tube to ensure it is clear.

Always buy genuine Prestige spare parts appropriate to your model.

Do not pressure cook dumplings.

Do not thicken when cooking under pressure.

Do not use oil or other fats when cooking under pressure or use the pressure cooker for frying.

Move the pressure cooker under pressure with the greatest care. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles and knobs.If necessary, use protection.

Do not use the pressure cooker for purposes other than the one for which it is intended.

This appliance cooks under pressure. Scalds may result from inappropriate use of the pressure cooker. Make sure that the cooker is properly closed before applying heat – see “instructions for use”.

Never force open the pressure cooker. Do not open before making sure that its internal pressure has completely dropped. See the “instructions for use”.

After cooking meat with a skin (e.g. ox tongue), which may swell under the effect of pressure, do not prick the meat while the skin is swollen; you might be scalded.

Do not tamper with any of the safety systems beyond the maintenance instructions specified in the instruction for use.

Ensure you always lift your pressure cooker across the hob, do not drag.

Keep these instructions.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Top Class Dhall Maker 23 Aug 2010
    Very well designed and made. Easy to use and clean. Cuts down the time to cook Dhall and beans to just 15 minutes instead of 50. Good value at Amazon compared with other shops.

    Works fine, not too big or heavy. Would have liked one without a handle but doesn't seem to exist in a small size. Does the job v. well and saves a lot of gas. Just what you want in a motor home or caravan. Can't really understand why more people don't use them at home as well they are so easy nowadays.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Good product 2 Feb 2011
    By Golspy
    Easy to use - 4/5
    Instruction Manual - 3.9/5
    Build Quality - 4.5 /5 (the cooked dhal sticks into the handle's small gaps)
    Cooking time - 5/5
    -Tried mainly with toor dhal - takes around 15 to 20 mins. (Requires more water on low heat compared to high dome)

    This is my first exp with smartplus kind a cooker. Earlier, I use to use High dome types which whistles every 5 - 2 mins(cooking time were based on number of whistles it makes on high pressure). Smart-plus cooker, cooking is based on time when compared to high dome (whistles types).

    Took couple of trials to know the cooking time and methods.

    I felt this cooker takes less time to cook compared to other high dome types.

    IMP Note:
    Cook on medium to low heating only. On high heating this might char the food especially on low water content.

    Good to cook for 2 or 3 people.

    for [...] + free delivery definitely value for money.
