  1. Anyone know what psi corresponds with each program??

    1. All of the pressure programs operate at 70kpa which is equivalent to 10.1psi.



      1. It is all the same pressure.. I have been learning to use it and found I have to turn it on and off depending what I am doing… Slow cokeer needs to be turned off. I leave it on to get hot, then off 30 minutes, then on 15, off30 .. that is without the pressure locked,

  2. My husband just bought me a 7-in-1 programmable pressure cooker from Walmart. I have never used one before. I read the instruction book but I must be densed. I wish that they had a cookbook in it so I would know what I am doing. I was going to take it back to Walmart but husband lost the sales receipt. I wish I knew what and how to cook country style ribs or chicken and how long to cook it for. I want to join christine barr on facebook. Also where do I get a vegetable basket so I can steam veggies? I have a trivet that came with it, but what do I use it for? Like I said I have no idea what I am doing with it. I will be 71 yrs. tomorrow and I love to cook, but this machine has me baffled. Thank you.

    1. Just put chicken and in press the button that says chicken or it will say P06/7 depends on what type of pressure cooker you have.

    2. Susan I have one also and I did not get a cookbook with mine either. Most people I’ve talked to got 2 books but all I got was the instruction book. I use mine a lot and love it but still get confused on which settings to use.

    3. Return it. Even though u don’t have the receipt you should get a store credit. I have had to look up receipes and figure it out. You are by no means dense, the people who wrote the booklet for the pressure cooker are. My daughter has the, insta pot, and the instructions are so much more helpful. This booklet above here isn’t of much use either. I was making beans and it is telling me to put on, high temp, what button is that? Return it, and get the insta pot. I’m stuck with mine and when it goes……will never get another one, it will be, insta pot. It is ashame because I thought faberware was a good name.

    4. Go n Pinterest, there are tons of recipes for Instant pot (or any brand).

    5. I downloaded one off the web

    6. Mine came with a recipe booklet, but you can find lots of recipes on Pinterest. The trivet is to set food on, like corned beef or set eggs on it. Any veggie steamer can go in it that you can get at Walmart.

    7. You are definitely not dense. My husband and I both read that instruction book and it is horrible. And that is a sentiment echoed by a large portion of a Farberware owners

  3. I know I can get another recipe from another cookbook and I have but their cooking buttons and mine are different. For example…..recipe says to cook on high for 20 mins…what button is high on the Faberware……I don’t have one so it is like trial and error with this. I would think that the manual could have explained what the different settings are equal to in regular cooking like….is beans/rice…….is that supposed to be medium heat? This is the problem…I can interchange a recipe it would be easier if I had some of this information instead of “trial and error” that I am doing.

    1. Debra, you can push the “Chicken” program and adjust the pressure cooking time to 20 minutes – it operates at “high” pressure.

      There are more details on how to use your pressure cooker on your cooker’s manual page – look under the heading “hip info”.



  4. My recipe says that use. Manual setting Hicham e Farberwatr 7 in one doesn’t have. What other settings g should I use.

    1. Pat, use the “Chicken” program and adjust the time according to the recipe you’re using. ; )



  5. I just bought Farberware electric pressure cooker. It normally takes 20 min to cook rice in a rice cooker. I pressed the button where it says slow cook so let’s see how it comes out.

    1. Shailia, you can make rice following our tutorial. Use the same ratios of liquid to grain and click on the “chicken” program and adjust the cooking time as noted:



  6. Anybody know what setting to cook pasta on?

    1. did you ever figure it out? Ive been Trying to figure the pasta thing out myself

    2. I cook pasta using the P2 setting and adjust the time to 14 minutes.

      my quick pasta and meatball recipe is.
      dump two bags of frozen meat balls in the pot
      dump 1 box of pasta in next
      pour in 2 jars of pasta sauce
      add 2 inches of water to each jar and shake to liquefy all remaining sauce
      pour the water from both jars in the cooker, . this should just cover all the pasta.
      press p2 then adjust time for 14 minutes
      Release pressure at end of cooking cycle (Timer has reached 0)
      Be careful of the steam when venting. It can burn you instantly
      Open the top, give a quick stir to get the steam condensation mixed into the sauce and enjoy.
      The meatballs will usually float up and get distributed in the pasta during the cooking process.

      1. Is this quick pasta and meatballs recipe a double recipe? Does the box of pasta that you “dump” in need to be one or two pound?

        1. I call this a double meatball single batch.
          All of the pasta is sold in 1 lb. Boxes in my area. I am sorry for the assumption.
          You can easily make this with just one bag of Meatballs.
          I also have made this using just one jar of pasta sauce. However, I prefer more sauce on my pasta. You have to add another jar of water if you cut down the sauce.
          All of the ready made pasta sauce, boxed pasta and meatballs are pretty much the same quantity in my area regardless of the brand.

          1. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Van!

            Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!



    3. My opinion, don’t cook pasta in a pressure cooker. It will turn to mush. Pasta is too delicate to pressure cook.

      1. In my experience with various types of boxed pasta, they all come out perfectly.
        The key is to control tbe time. Overcooking or too much liquid will not give the quality most people appreciate.

        I just made Chicken Alfredo with Peas using Farfalle (Bow Tie). They came out firm yet cooked thru. They are still invidual after refrigerating and microwave reheating.
        I used 2lb bag of frozen peas, 3lb of boneless skinless chicken breast,
        2 12 oz box of store brand pasta, and 2 jars of Walmart (Great Value) alfredo sauce.
        I diced the chicken and after sprinkling on spices to taste cooked it on the chicken setting. After the steam released, I added the pasta, then the frozen peas and the sauce. I add about 1/3 of each jar of water to swish and rinse out the remaining sauce. Using the Rice setting and adjusting the cook time to 14 minutes, I close it up and let it cook.
        I allow the steam to rest for 10 minutes, then I carefully release the remaining pressure. Onece the lock button drops, remove the lid. Give a couple of stirs with a wooden spoon to mix it up and serve. I purchase deli style 16oz clear containers and lids at a restaurant supply store to store the leftovers in.

  7. None of the Farberwares have a “low pressure” setting to pressure cook pasta, so the best solution is to use the Chicken setting (which is high pressure but adjustable time) and first try the recommended pressure cooking time – if the pasta is too tender, shave off two minutes from the next batch.

    Generally, with pasta, the pressure cooking time is so short that the amount of pressure you use is irrelevant. Unless, of course, you’re Italian – at which point you’ll want to adjust the timings and pressures to reach that al dente sweet spot! ; )



  8. My husband recently bought me the Farberware 7-1 pressure cooker. I have used it a couple of times and I love it. I was wondering if you sell a cookbook for it? It would make things a lot easier for me. Please let me know.

    1. Mary, you can find a link to my cookbook at the top of this website in the menu, under “cookbook” (or following the link at the bottom of my reply). The Hip Pressure Cooking cookbook was not written FOR any specific pressure cooker. So it will give you cooking times, not program button names. Whenever one of my recipes on the website, or in the book, call for a cooking time just use the “Chicken” setting.

      The only “bump” you’ll run into is when recipes call for “low pressure.” Your pressure cooker does not have it. Just split the recommended “low pressure” cooking time in half and make it using your cooker’s default (high) pressure.

      And, of course, unlike any other pressure cookbook author, you can always come back here to ask me questions – if I don’t answer them quickly enough a knowledgeable reader, will! : )



  9. Thanks. I just wanted to thank you for explaining to me how I can adjust recipes to be used in my farberware 7-1 pressure cooker. I’ve had this thing for almost a year and all I’ve been able to figure out is how to steam veggies without turning them to mush. But, now the possibilities are endless if I use the “chicken” setting. Thank you!!


  11. I appreciate all of the tips and info. This Faberware 7-in-1 Programmable Pressure Cooker has been a little intimidating.

  12. Can i bake a cake or bread in my pressure cooker? If so how? I’ve seen videos on the intsta pot which does both.

    1. Instant Pot “steams” cakes and bread. Just add 2 cups of water to the base, add a steamer basket, and the the heat-proof container with the batter in it and pressure cook it for the time required by the recipe (using the chicken setting). Take a look at the “Dessert” episode of the pressure cooking school that shows exactly how to do it:



  13. I would like to make yogurt in my Farberware pressure cooker. No cookbook provided, and the buttons are all different from the instant pot. Could you give me instructions via email?

    1. Lois, the yogurt setting is a special setting with an extra-low temperature for incubation. If your pressure multi cooker does not have that setting, you cannot make yogurt it in.




  14. I absolutely LOVE my Farberware Digital 6-Qt Pressure Cooker and use it all the time. I am looking for a way to make Greek yogurt in my pressure cooker and have found no recipes for it at all, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

    1. You haven’t found any recipes for making yogurt in your Farberware because it can’t be made using the existing programs and pressure settings on this cooker. However, you can follow no-yogurtmaker recipes and use your cooker to boil the milk and as a “thermos” to keep it warm.

      Here’s an article that proposes three methods…



  15. I have the fabreware instant pot and I cannot find a suggested cook setting and time for hard boiled eggs!! All the recipes I find say cook on low, which this one doesn’t have!! Any suggestions what to cook them at and for how long?

    1. I also have a farberware instant pot and bought a silicone egg holder from bed bath and beyons that holds 9 eggs. I put in a cup of water and use the vegetable button and once the pressure gets high enough it takes 8 minutes. Release the pressure and put them in a dish of ice water for 10 or 15 min. Its awesome they peel so easy and no egg left in the shell. Have you ever made popcorn in yours? I heard it works great but I dont know what button to use.

  16. I just got a 7-1 pressure cooker and I did get a recipe book, but it was limited so I downloaded one off the web.
