Normal cooking times are approximately cut in half with Setting I, and to one-third at Setting II. However, the exact cooking time always depends on the size and quality of the food, too.

A: You should not prepare Apple sauce and compotes in a pressure cooker since steam bubbles can build which burst upon opening.
Q: Can I deep-fry under pressure?
A: NO - you can NOT deep-fry under pressure. Foods can ONLY be deep-fried in the pressure cooker WITHOUT the lid!
If you decide to deep-fry in the cooker without the lid make sure that the pot you use is high enough to prevent burns caused by foaming or spattering oil.
- Fill the cooker at most half full (1/2 marking) with fat
- Heat the fat at medium. Do not overheat it
- The right temperature for deep-frying has been reached if bubbles immediately form around the handle form around the handle of a wooden spoon when it is dipped in the hot fat
- NEVER cover the cooker while deep frying
Q: Is it possible to prepare dishes other then stews or potato on a Fissler pressure cooker?
Q: I have stains on my pressure cooker. What happened and what can I do?
A: These are generally discolorations which result from substances in the water being absorbed into the passive film of the stainless steel. Cleansers which contain a large amount of basic silicates and phosphates can also produce such discolorations in stainless steel. Adding salt to water which has not yet come to the boil can also produce deposits of salt crystals on the bottom of the pot. The salt then reacts with the stainless steel, forming little white spots on the bottom of the pot. Discolorations can also be produced if stainless steel cookware is placed on a burner that is already very hot. The discolorations can easily be removed with Fissler Stainless Steel Cleanser.
Q: I think my pressure cooker is not working correctly anymore. What can I do?
A: You can consult the chapter " Questions and answers regarding your pressure cooker" in your manual. If you can find a solution, please contact us and we provide you with the phone number for technical support.
