The additional advantages of your pressure cooker with non-stick coating
In addition to the well-known features of KUHN RIKON pressure cookers, this coating offers you further decisive advantages:
- Hard, highly-resistant titanium base coating
- Non-stick coating (no difficult-to-remove food residues)
- Quick browning possible
- Simple to clean
- Multifunctional pan: crisp fry in the traditional manner, then cook until done under pressure (cooking time under pressure approx. 1/3 of normal cooking time)
Directions for proper use
The pressure cooker is intended for cooking foods to which liquid has been added, and can be used on all cooking ranges including induction hobs in the home. KUHN RIKON Ltd. pressure cookers are particularly suited to foods that normally require a long cooking time, e.g.
The pressure cooker cooks under pressure. Although the pressure cooker is characterized by a high level of quality and safety, injury (by scalding) or material damage resulting from misuse or improper use cannot be ruled out. For this reason, take careful note of the safety instructions marked in red.
Read the operating instructions thoroughly before using your pressure cooker. Pay special attention to the sections on testing, cleaning and caring for the safety devices and the control valve. Please carefully observe the safety instructions marked with a red triangle.
Using the pressure cooker for the first time
Before using the pressure cooker the first time, wash the pan, lid and gasket with hot, soapy water. On electric cookers, the diameter of the pressure cooker base should match that of the hotplate or ring. The compatible hob diameter is etched into outside of the base of the pan. (See section 13).
On some induction cookers noise may be generated whilst cooking under certain conditions on account of cookware oscillation caused by the magnetic field. Unfortunately this cannot be prevented when using this cookware.
If you cook on gas, never allow the gas flame to lick the sides of the pan. If you do, the exterior of the pan will become discoloured and the grips (or handles) will become unnecessarily hot. We recommend using a SWISS ENERGYSAVER. (See section 16).
