6Important Safeguards Read all instructions 1. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles. 2. Close supervision is necessary when the pressure cooker is used near children. 3. Do not place the pressure cooker in a heated oven. 4. Extreme caution must be used when moving a pressure cooker containing hot liquids.5. Do not use pressure cooker for other than intended use. 6. This appliance cooks under pressure. Improper use may result in scalding injury. Make certain unit is properly closed before operating. See Operating Instructions.7. Do not fill the unit over full. When cooking foods that expand during cooking such as rice or dried vegetables, do not fill the unit over ½ full. Over filling may cause a risk of clogging the vent pipe and developing excess pressure. See Operating Instructions. 8. Be aware that certain foods, such as applesauce, cranberries, pearl barley, oatmeal or other cereals, split peas, noodles, macaroni, rhubarb, or spaghetti can foam, froth, and sputter, and clog the pressure release device (steam vent). These foods should not be cooked in a pressure cooker. 9. Always check the pressure release devices for clogging before use. 10. Do not open the pressure cooker until the unit has cooled and all internal pressure has been released. If the handles are difficult to push apart, this indicates that the cooker is still pressurized Œ do not force it open. Any pressure in the cooker can be hazardous. See Operating Instructions. 11. Do not use this pressure cooker for pressure frying with oil. 12. When the normal operating pressure is reached, turn the heat down so all the liquid, which creates the steam, does not evaporate. SAVE THESE INSTRUCTIONS.

8Safety Systems & Structure 1. Lid: Made of high quality stainless steel. 2. Safety Plate: Safety locking device is activated when push plate is closed and locked. This avoids opening lid when there is pressure in the NuWave PPC. 3. Safety Valve: A safety device that assures the push plate stays locked when pressurized. 3a. Safety valve 3b. O-Ring for safety valve 4. Safety Window: A safety feature that releases excess pressure automatically when cooking pressure is too high. 5. Anti-Clogging Nut: Effectively prevents food from plugging steam outlet to avoid excess pressure within NuWave PPC. 6. Rubber Gasket: Creates a pressure seal between lid and pot. All parts must remain completely clean and avoid any cracks or deterioration. 43a3b63512

10BenefitsNuWaveŽ PPC consists of a cooking pot and a special lid that locks into place on the top of the pot. When NuWave PPC is heated, steam is sealed inside, which creates pressure. With this high pressure, the internal temperature of the NuWave PPC is raised above the normal boiling point of water. The cooking process is thus expedited leading to healthier meals.Faster Ł On average, the NuWave PPC prepares food faster than traditional cooking methods. Tastier Ł Pressure cooking allows food to retain its full and natural flavor by cooking quickly and efficiently. With the natural flavor intact, less seasoning is required, enabling you to craft your meals precisely to your taste. Healthier Ł Vitamins and minerals are retained in food prepared with the NuWave PPC compared to conventional stove top cooking. In addition, pressure cooking utilizes water in lieu of oil or fat, eliminating excess amounts from the meal. MultifunctionalŁ The NuWave PPC can be used for steaming, simmering and stewing fresh or even frozen foods. Prepare everything from delicate soups and desserts to hearty meat dishes.

11Operating InstructionsOperating InstructionsPrior to First Use Take time to read all instructions. Ł Wash with warm soapy water. Ł Treat the rim of the pot with a small amount of cooking oil in order to make opening and closing easier. See Figure 1. Ł Fill pot ½ full with cold water and heat for 10 minutes according to Cooking Instructions. Ł Open the NuWave PPC only after all pressure has been released. Dry NuWave PPC with soft cloth. Safe Operation Ł Adding food and liquid is important to fill the NuWave PPC with liquid prior to operation. Refer to recipes beginning on page 21 for specific instructions. Ł Maximum Volume: Never fill the NuWave PPC more than of its capacity with liquid and food. See Figure 2. Ł Fill NuWave PPC to only half capacity when preparing foods that will expand in size and/ or produce foam while cooking (such as rice, legumes, broths, or dried vegetables). See Figure 3. Ł Minimum Volume: The amount of liquid needed depends on the cooking method used in the recipe and the length of cooking time. Ł Never cook without liquid, it can overheat as a result, which can damage the NuWave PPC (e.g. melt base, or damage safety mechanisms and heat source). Ł In case of overheating, never remove NuWave PPC from heat source. Turn off heat and let NuWave PPC cool until the pressure indicator depresses. Figure 1 Figure 2 Figure 3 ½
