  1. I have this pressure cooker and cannot find recipes for it!
    very disappointing after spending money on it

    1. Kathy, you’re in the right place. Just click “recipe index” at the top of this page – you can use any pressure cooker recipe with this cooker.



      1. Does anyone know where I can find the inner pot replacement for Emeril T-fal pressure cooker? I believe it’s Part Number: SS-991486

    2. Hi Kathy,

      I, too, have this PC (yet to use it, though) and the manual is available for download on this website (great site!!!). I wrote (email) to: and asked for the recipe booklet files and manual. After a few days I received replies with the two recipe booklet files available and the manual. I was able to save all three files to my computers. All painless and easy. I see that your inquiry is from 2015 so not sure that you will see this in 2017, but hope you do and that it might help others. Happy (pressure) cooking!

      Thank you, Laura for all your hard work and joy in presenting your videos and great website. God bless you and Merry Christmas!

  2. I have Emeril’s pressure cooker 2010 model and twice it has not come to pressure. …that’s my issue..but I use it a lot I use my regular recipes when I Cooke with it. I modified the timing..lots of guess work. …without a book for pressure cooking….

    1. Rae for help with your pressure cooker, follow these instructions and come to join us in the forums:

      See you there!


      1. Well it 7 yrs later since my last post
        I brought a new O ring from a local hardware store once…it’s still working fine…this pressure cooker is a conversation piece as well
        I post pictures of my meals from time to time that was cooked and it has not disappointed me…I still don’t have the main cook book…that my fault

        But I got plenty of info on cook times, and 2 step cooking process…
        Which works well
        I will never be without this pressure cooker..
        This is not a good example but in real life sometimes u don’t want or feel like I tossed a New York strip that was frozen in the Pressure cooker
        and it was cutting with a fork…
        The stock I used to make homemade roma noodles…
        The photo was a beef roast I like being able to brown in the same pot..

    2. Rae,

      Please see my comment, above. Just send your model no. (I took a photo of the label on the bottom of the PC and sent it with my email) and inquiry for the recipe booklet files and manual to: They should reply fairly quickly with the needed files.

      I also recommend Laura’s book “Hip Pressure Cooking” — buy here: (Laura will get a small commission at no cost to you). Of course, this website has great videos, recipes, and great tips for pressure cooking.

      I’ve read that when there is not enough liquid in the cooking pot, the pressure cooker might not come up to pressure. Happy (pressure) cooking!

  3. Any chance I could have a manual and recipe book mailed to me? I lost mine..

    1. You can download an electronic copy or contact the manufacturer to ask for a printed copy. Above this comment section there is a link after the words “Manufacturer Website” click on that, to contact them.



    2. What Laura said below! Also check out my comments above, please. Happy (pressure) cooking!

  4. I used the pressure cooker three times so far. I love it. Problem: This last time, I made lamb chops. I reduced the honey based sauce; when I cleaned out, the Tfal coating was bubbled up in the center and washed right off with a soft cloth. Since the product was over a year old when I got it from a friend, it’s not under warranty even though it was actually only used a few times. I’m trying to find a new pot; I love cooking with it, but I won’t use peeling cookware. Is there a replacement part list? I can’t find one at all-only for Tfal’s latest model.

    1. Hi Elle W.,

      Check out my comments above about writing for recipe booklet files. They might also be able to provide you with a new pot if you explain your situation as you did above! All the best!

      1. Thanks. I tried. Nothing but an opportunity to purchase a new pot. If I have to make a purchase, I would like the pot to be Stainless Steel! They do not offer one in SS. :-(

  5. Wow! What an amazing list of PC manuals! Got mine for my Emeril / T-Fal PC which I have yet to use! Will do so soon, though. Wonderful and informative site. Have stayed up two nights watching your videos and copying your recipes. I also purchased your book (didn’t realize you had associated sites). Thanks so much!

  6. I have this pressure cooker, and I love it. I have had it for 3 years and wanted to get replacement parts for it (a new ring and a new pot) and the manufacturer stopped carrying them. It’s only available via 3rd party and at almost the same price as a brand new pressure cooker – competing brand. Very disappointed!

    1. I went to a local hardware store the clerk said my ideal of replacement O ring wouldn’t work…but I did it anyway and it held no break down…I try not to use any utensils that not for use on non-stick surface…so my lid is the only that creates a scratch.
      Im proud of this product it is 7 yrs old now
      I do realize that parts my not be available as time goes on…but I would buy a same brand if the time comes
      I also have a cookware set of Emeril it is 12 yrs old….

    2. Please post a link! I want a stainless inner pot. I have been too chicken just to pick one I think will work.

  7. I would like an instructioun booklet and recipe book

    1. Janice, read all my comments, above. You should be able to get the manual on this site (I did) and the cooker booklets from t-fal.

  8. Has anyone found an insert they can use for making things like cheesecake.

  9. I have the Emeril by tfal, how do I cook beans in it?

    1. Soak the bean over night . Then put the bean in the pot cover the bean with water , then put two tsp olio and garlic about one ,then put the pot for 2 minutes in not open the pressure valve. Once all the steam has been released, unlock and remove the lid.

  10. I bought a pressure cooker at a rummage sale and its amazing. The only that it didnt come with the user manual so I’m not sure if I’m setting the right numbers on it. So I just kinda guess. So is 1 like an hour or what. Can someone please help me.
