This pressure cooker is also sold under the Delimano brand name (model Tempo Presto).



Hip Notes:
There is an error in the the grading scale printed on the inside of the pressure cooker. The manual states that the cooker should have a minimum amount of liquid reaching up to the 1/3 mark inside the pressure cooker to reach pressure – on most sizes this mark can only be reached with 500ml (two cups) of liquid. We believe there was an error between the spec and manufacture and eventual printing of the manual – because our testing has shown that these pressure cookers can be safely brought up to pressure with just 200ml (3/4 cups) cooking liquid.

  1. Yes! In fact, I spoke to one of the b/r/k technicians this morning, and she said that this is a fairly old mistake that they have corrected in more recent manuals. She was surprised to hear that the pdf file of the manual currently available on the internet still has this, and promised to have it changed.
    (Don’t know how I missed your entry last night when I was looking for information about this – I guess I need to refine my search techniques!)

  2. Btw, at least in the (older) German manual they make a distinction between liquid (they want 3/8 l, or about 1 1/2 cups – a little high but ok) and the minimum amount of liquid plus food – that’s where the ominous (and erroneous) “1/3 of volume of pot” comes in.

  3. Thanks for sharing the info you got from B/R/K with us!
