Electric pressure cooker with default pressure for the cooking programs is 50kpa (equivalent to 7.2psi) and a pressure canning program that claims to cook at 82.7kpa (11.99psi).
So this means the cooking times will be different (longer) in the power pressure cooker than in almost any other electric (for example, Instant Pot). To use this cooker follow recipes written for electric pressure cookers, I recommend mainly using the “equivalent” pre-programmed time, like the “bean/lentil” program for beans.
But if an electric pressure cooker recipe gives a specific pressure cooking time, you’ll have to increase that 30% (multiply the given time by 1.3 on a calculator) to compensate for the lower pressure.
I don’t recommend using the canning program for pressure cooking as it is designed to only steam water – the heat-up power may burn some foods and there might not be any “burn control” detection on this program.
Pressure Canning FunctionWARNING: Do not pressure can low-acid foods (meat, vegetables, etc.) in this pressure cooker. Although this model may include instructions and a function for pressure canning, according to the National Center for Home Food Preservation (NCHFP), no electric pressure cookers have been tested for safety for pressure canning:
Even if there are referrals to the National Center for HFP in the instructions for canning in the manufacturer's directions, we do not currently support the use of the USDA canning processes in electric, multi-cooker appliances.more info: Consumer Alert: No Pressure Canning in electric pressure & multi-cookers says NCHFP
