Answer:
This model does not have weights which you would physically change depending on the type of food you intend to cook ( I used that system for my old prestige p/cooker which I had used for over 30 years).

The Prestige Smartplus uses a different system, where you can alter a flip switch on the lid, changing the pressure from low to high as needed. Be aware that this is different to other or older pressure cookers, and you do need to take a little time to understand the various functions, but do not let this put you off. Having said that, this is a joy to use and the base can go in the dishwasher, but not the lid or rubber seals.

Answer:
Exactly the same problem we had. We sent back the shiny new stainless one and are still happily using the old aluminium one. I think it's caused by the stainless ones being too thin on the bottom.
