Read use & care instructions before using your pressure cooker for the first time.
Can be used on gas, electric, and induction stoves. Not suitable for other heat sources.
Do not seal or cover the pressure cooker while deep-frying.
Do not place pressure cooker in the oven, as this will destroy plastic components
Do not alter the safety mechanisms, except for the maintenance measures described in the instructions for use included with the unit. Do not repair or oil the valves! Use only original Fissler replacement parts to ensure that your pressure cooker will function properly and safely.
Make sure that parts which wear out, such as the rubber gasket, silicone membrane, valve base seal, and O-ring for the Euromatic are replaced every 1-2 years at the latest by Fissler original replacement parts. Replace parts which show discolorations, have cracks or other damage, or do not fit correctly with Fissler original replacement parts before using the pressure cooker again.
Only use your Fissler pressure cooker with the Fissler pressure cooker lid for the same model.
Never use your pressure cooker without adding liquid, as this could result in damage.
Make sure that the cooker is properly closed before it is heated up.
Keep an eye on the pressure cooker while cooking, especially the indicator rod. Regulate the heat so that the indicator rod does not rise above the desired cooking setting. In this case, if the heat is not decreased, steam will escape through the valve, cooking times will change, and a total loss of liquid can result in damage to the cooker and burner.
Move the pressure cooker very carefully when it is under pressure. Do not touch the hot outer surfaces of the pressure cooker, as you could burn yourself by doing so! Only touch the handles when cooking, and use pot holder gloves when necessary.
Pressure cookers must be shaken before opening. This will prevent pockets of steam, which might be caught within the food, from spattering up when the pressure cooker is opened and scalding you. Do not cook apple sauce or stewed fruits in a pressure cooker.
Never try to force the pressure cooker open. Do not open it before you are certain that the steam inside has been expelled completely.
Always keep your hands, head, and body out of the danger zone when releasing steam from the pressure cooker! Be particularly careful about this when depressurizing with the safety slide.
If you have cooked meat with skin (e.g. tongue) or sausage with casing, which can swell when under pressure, do not pierce the skin as long as it is swollen. This could result in scalding!
If the pressure cooker or any of its parts are damaged or do not function as described in the instructions for use, do not use the pressure cooker.
Feel free to contact your Fissler retailer or Fissler Customer Service if you have any questions after reading the instructions for use.
