Electric pressure cooker with adjustable pressure. The default pressure for the cooking programs is 70kpa (equivalent to 10.1psi) but the pressure can be adjusted manually by pushing the “pressure adjust” button and set in 10kpa increments between 20 and 80 kpa (equivalent to 2.9 to 11.6 psi).

  1. cant get my power xl electric pressure cooker (that i love) wont seal. lid wont lock

    1. Ann, make sure that there is nothing underneath the inner bowl and that the gasket in the lid is in the right position – occasionally these gaskets need to be replaced (they usually last about 18 months) so contact the retailer or manufacturer to find out where to purchase replacement parts.



  2. Any suggestions on how to get burned food off of the bottom of the inner liner? I cooked the pot roast recipe from the recipe book that came with the cooker last evening, but the bottom of the liner was black when I opened it after it cooked. Luckily the food didn’t taste burned, but I’ve had the liner soaking over night and it still has black on the bottom.

  3. try soaking with a dryer fabric sheet (or 2) overnight with hot water. My other trick for burned pot bottoms is to add water to just above the burned line and sprinkle some dishwasher detergent ( the powered crystal kind – not the gel) soak over night. good luck

  4. after cooker shuts off the lid will not unlock , have to put in fridge over night before it will unlock
    cooked chicken say 10;am at 5:00pm lid still locked. what can be done to fix this problem?

    1. Shirley, did you try releasing the pressure through the valve on the lid?



  5. How do I change the cooking time? Whenever I hit a new time it just goes back to the default 15 minutes. Can you give me exact instructions on how to change the time. Say for example–for applesauce.

  6. Could someone please respond to Nancy’s post about how to set the time manually? I’ve been trying to figure this out for a long time now and I can’t find it in the manual or anywhere

  7. I bought the tristar power cooker plus from Sam’s Club and need a manual, how can I get one?

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



  8. I have lost the button behind the pressure valve, where can I get one?

    1. You need to contact the retailer or manufacturer, by following the link above for Tristar. BTW, it’s called “pressure indicator”. ; )
