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. 14. When the normal operating pressure is reached, turn the heat down so all the liquid which creates the steam does not evaporate. 15. Always check the pressure release devices for clogging before use. 16. 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 do not force it open. Any pressure in the cooker can be hazardous. See Operating Instructions. 17.

DO NOT damage the Seal Belt and DO NOT replace it with anything other than the replacement belt designated for this unit. 20. DO NOT tamper with the Steel Ring in the Lid (2) with any tools or external forces. If the Steel Ring is damaged, please stop using immediately and replace the Lid. 21. Clean the Filter (17) regularly to keep the cooker clean. 22. NEVER use additional weight on the Pressure Limiting Valve (3) or replace the Pressure Limiting Valve (3) with anything not intended for use with this unit. 23. The surface of contact between the Inner Pot (6) and inner surface of Main Body (13) should always be clean. DO NOT use the Inner Pot with other heating sources.
