Hip Summary:
The DUO  is spring valve pressure cooker with a pressure selector with four settings: high pressure (2), low pressure (1), pressure release and valve removal. Maximum operating pressure (second ring) is 14.5 psi or 100kpa.  Pressure is released in the direction of the steam release selection.

Readers have reported difficulty with bringing this cooker to pressure – we have also experienced this issue.  The lid needs to be locked by pushing the yellow slide completely towards the pressure selector before the cooker is brought up to pressure (sometimes with force) until a clicking sound is heard – this ensures the cooker is properly locked and can be brought up to pressure.

There is some confusion with these cookers about when to start counting the pressure cooking time because the yellow pressure indicator will rise before the selected pressure is fully reached – and if the heat is turned down at this point the cooker will loose pressure.  Instead, this cooker has reached full pressure when the yellow indicator is solid (not springy) to the touch and a light stream of vapor exists the pressure selector.
