hip info:

Electric pressure multi-cooker that only cooks at “high” pressure of 70kpa (approx 10psi) for all cooking programs except for “Slow Cook” (P1)  and “Brown/Sear ” (P9).

No minimum liquid requirement is noted for this cooker in the manual, so be sure to use at least 1 1/2 cups of liquid (standard for most electric pressure cookers) for all pressure recipes.

When setting a custom cooking time for this cooker, select any program from P2 to P8 and adjust the cooking time according to the recipe – note the P3 “Rice/Risotto” program will not let you adjust the cooking time.

According to readers, the “Slow Cook” setting operates like the “low” setting from a conventional slow cooker. Make sure to bring the recipe to a boil with the saute’ setting, before switching to the “Slow Cook” setting and to use it with the lid on and the valve closed.

    Thank you so much

    1. On this page under the second photo down there is a red word “Download”. Click on that word and it will download the instruction manual and you can print it out.

    2. You’re lucky…..i got instruction book with NO RECIPE BOOK

      1. Is there supposed to BE a recipe book? My box only mentions, “English/Spanish instruction manual included”. (except it wasn’t included)

  3. Has anyone cooked hard boiled eggs in FW7?
    What setting, how long of time and water with rack?

    1. Boiled eggs on rack water 2 cups slightly soft yoke 4 min steamed vegetable setting increase or decrease minutes for your yoke liking.

        I’ve searched the internet, Farberware, etc. You are the only one who has given clear directions on what setting to use!
        Many blessings and good thoughts your way!

    2. I use the wire rack with 1 cup of water and 5 min on steam setting the 5 min natural release then quick release the pressure and then put into ice cold water.

  4. Does any other “generation” come with higher PSI than 10?

  5. I lost the knob on top that controls the pressure can I still use it?

  6. Can I fry fish, pressure or lid off?
    What is hottest setting? ²

  7. What does “OH” mean on my cooker?

    1. Chicken 5 minutes perfect

  8. I have the book, but it’s not specific enough. If a pressure recipe says to cook on high at “x-manual” minutes.should I use P08? In other words is that the highest pressure?

  9. I need a new basket as mine is warped and lid will not go on can you buy just the basket for food ??????

  10. Many thanks for providing the manual to download. (something Walmart/Farberware doesn’t do) I see earlier comments of missing manuals regarding the Model WM-CS6004W. Sadly, the guy in China who’s job is taking the manuals out of random boxes has not yet retired.

  11. There is a small silicone cap–perhaps it is the float valve–that has come out of the overflow hole . I can’t get it back into the hole where I think it belongs. Has anyone else had this problem?
