How To Adjust the Presto® Model 01370 Pressure Cooker Regulator

How-To Videos

On the 8-quart Stainless Steel Pressure Cooker (Stock No. 01370), the pressure regulator with steam release valve reaches 15 pounds pressure when a steady flow of steam is seen and/or heard as shown in this video. To maintain 15 pounds pressure during cooking, lower the heat as necessary to sustain a very slow and steady flow of steam. If excess steam is allowed to escape, the cooker may boil dry, the food may scorch, and/or the cooker may be damaged.
