****** Page 24 ****** Cooking and Safety Tips • Extreme caution should be taken when moving the steam release handle to the Venting position. Keep hands and face away from the steam release openings. Failure to comply may result in scalding or serious injury. • Do not attempt to open the lid until pressure inside the cooker is completely released. As a safety feature, until the float valve drops down the lid is locked and cannot be opened. Do not force lid open. • When opening the lid, the inner pot may adhere to the lid. This is caused by vacuum due to cooling. Make sure the steam release handle is in the Venting position and all the steam is released. • Ifthe float valve is stuck, move the steam release handle to the Venting position. Once all the steam is released, push the float valve down with a pen or long utensil. • Always add at least 1 8 fl oz. / 500 ml of water or other liquids so enough steam can be generated to cook under pressure. These include cooking sauces, wine, beer, stocks, juices of fruits and vegetables. Oils, oil-based sauces and thick cooking sauces do not have enough water content and will not account for the required liquid volume. • Time to pressure and cooking time will vary according to the temperature and quantity of the ingredients. Food that is cold or frozen will take longer to cook than food that is at room temperature. • When using the Delay Start program, allow sufficient cooling down time before serving. • The Delay Start program is not recommended for porridge, oatmeal or other foamy and thick liquids. Cooking progresses should be monitored when cooking these foods. 22
****** Page 25 ****** Care and Cleaning Unplug your Instant Pot@ and let it cool to room temperature before cleaning. • All Instant Poe inner pots, pressure cooker lids, glass lids, and accessories are dishwasher safe. • Remove the inner pot and lid, and wash with detergent. Rinse with clear water and wipe dry with a soft cloth. • Wipe the inner cooker base rim and slot with dry cloth to prevent rusting of the exterior cooker rim. • Remove the sealing ring and anti-block shield from the underside of the lid. Wash with warm, soapy water, rinse with clear water and wipe dry with a soft cloth. • The sealing ring must always be properly positioned on the underside of the lid. • Clean the outer body with a damp soft cloth or sponge. • Never use harsh chemical detergents, scouring pads or powders on any of the parts or components. • Periodically check that the steam release valve and float valve are in good working order and free of debris. 23
