  1. Is there not a manual for the PC 027 model?

    1. Jackie, we don’t have one. Try looking at all of the manuals to see if there is a similar one to your pressure cooker model.

  2. I used my cooker Sunday. I must have not had enough food in it.. I put it on slow cook and delayed the start for 2.5 hours. Or at least I thought that’s what 2.5 meant, then I left for church. When I came home 30 min. after the time it should have started the food (2 cans of corn) had burned. I thought all the steam had quit coming out and I opened it. And now for some reason it will not light up at all. Is there some type of reset button or what could be wrong? I enjoy my cooker and hope it is not broken, but I can’t imagine what happened.

  3. what can be done after the error code E4 is displayed when the cooker is cold.

    1. Un-plug and re-plug the cooker, and if that doesn’t work call the manufacturer (or retailer).



      1. This cooker isn’t even a year old yet, I use it a lot and love it. But if it is already broken, it is junk

    2. I have the same error code E4, how can I reset this?

  4. How can I order a Steam water storage cup for the PC028. I have one that I inherited and it does not have the water cup. What happens if the cup is not on and I use the Pressure Cooker?

    1. Bill, contact the retailer or manufacturer to purchase a new condensation cup. You can still cook with the cup off, it collects condensation, so have a rag near the bottom to catch any drips of liquid.



  5. I need a steam water storage cup for my model PC028 electric Pressure cooker. What will happen if I use the cooker without the steam water storage cup?

  6. I’ve never used my pot and about a week ago I decided it was time. To my surprise the instructions were missing. What can I do ?? Help

    1. Click on the link called “download” above where you left your comment. ; )



  7. My model # is not PC 028 it is model # K41143 034 000
    Perhaps I wasn’t clear on my model #
    Please help me with a book on how to use my pressure cooker. It’s a beautiful piece of cook ware but I can’t use it !
    I was told it was purchased 6/14. I’d forgotten that I had it.
    Thanks Joyce Dingus
