Step by step instructions on how to use the Power Pressure Cooker XL. For more recipes and instructional videos check out: http://www.erictheiss.com or http://www.powerpressurecooker.com/ Click link to watch how to make braised chicken in the PPXL http://youtu.be/s8ZolY0uPqM Carbonara in the PPXL: http://youtu.be/XzSmlnWCdw0 Pasta & Clams: https://youtu.be/lNdrbpYnfKQ Power Pressure Cooker Pot Roast 2 TBS olive oil 3.5 lbs of chuck roast 1.5 cups wild mushrooms sliced 1.5 cups large chopped potatoes 1.5 cup carrots, large chopped 1.5 cup onions, chopped 1 cup celery, chopped 1 TBS soy sauce 1 TBS steak sauce 1TBS Worcestershire sauce 2 TBS apple cider vinegar 1/4 cup tomato paste 1/3 cup dry red wine 2 TBS garlic, chopped finely 1 TBS tomato paste 1/2 tsp cumin 1 tsp thyme 1/2 tsp rosemary 1/2 tsp dry mustard powder 1/2 tsp coarse ground pepper 1 TBS butter (optional) 1/8 cup heavy cream (optional) 1 tsp orange rind (optional) 1/4 cup chopped parsley (optional) Salt to taste Instructions using Power Pressure Cooker XL: 1. Take lid off the pressure cooker and plug it in. 2. Press the chicken/meat button once and press the cook time selector once which puts the cooker at 40 minutes. 3. The screen will go from all zero’s to flashing lights. The flashing lights mean it is now in browning/heat up mode. Let it heat up for about a couple of minutes, then add 2 TBS olive oil. 4. Generously salt and pepper the meat and place it into the hot oil to sear. Sear all sides for a few minutes until nicely browned. Set the meat aside. 5. Add the wine first, then the onion, celery, carrots and garlic. Let simmer for a couple of minutes. 6. Put the meat back in and add all remaining ingredients. 7. Put the lid on, making sure it is on fully and that the vent is on “pressure” and not “steam.” 8. Now you get to relax while the Power Pressure Cooker builds pressure and starts counting down once it is fully up to pressure. 9. Your pressure cooker will automatically turn to a warming mode when the timer is finished counting down. Now you can release the pressure by turning the valve to the “steam” icon. The pressure will release rapidly and in a minute or two, the lid will be able to be opened. 10. Optional section: I like to reduce the sauce for a more concentrated flavor but you certainly don’t have to! Stir in the butter and cream then some orange rind. Throw some parsley in at the very last minute. You can add a slurry if you want a thicker sauce as well. All totally optional.

How long does it take for floating valve & red pressure indicator to drop??? I’ve been waiting forever to see it happen!

I love the lid on this, no steamy water coming out like my old fashioned pressure cooker. Thinking of buying this. Any comments would be welcome.

D Hansel (29 days ago)
Update on the new models! The older models had a button on top that said "cook time selector" The New models that have the red pressure indicator on top of the lid says instead of "cook time selector" now says "Saute" Which means you cannot use the big round button on front to change the cooking time. If you press it and put the lid on it will beep at you and flash "LID". You have to select what you want to cook and immediately press the minute button to reach the cooking time. I called customer service and got a person in the US that explained this. She said the "Saute" button on from is for searing the food and not jump to the cooking time. My new pressure cooker doesn't automatically seal up for pressure cooking so I have to jiggle the lid to make it quit letting steam out the vent hole on the lid handle.

I am so disappointed with my PCXL. Not that it doesn't work, but the fact that the teflon coating started coming off. I have NOT misused, burned, or used metal utensils in it. I THOUGHT by taking good care of it, it would last a long time. A lot of pressure cookers offer a stainless steel insert pot. This one? Heck no, and I got a (I won't say rude person) not very nice person on the live chat, when I asked about it. I will NEVER buy anything WHATSOEVER from this company again.

The problem I have with pressure cookers is to produce steam they must come to the boiling point 212 once it is over 185 it destroys all the nutrients! do your homework before buying one!

Hi, I have the Pro model #PCXL-PRO6. The Pressure seal and vent valve looks different then yours. It floats on top and there is no way to push it down. It also does NOT have the arrow or any graphics on it. When the cooker warms up, the steam immediately starts releasing from the unit and the timer NEVER worked once. I called the company and they told me I had to give it a month to start working properly which sounded ridiculous to me. I also asked them if the valve is supposed to just float on top and they said yes. Is the steam supposed to start releasing from the beginning or do you think it's defective and that's also why the timer never worked. I finally gave up on it and since the warranty was up, it's stored in my cabinet for a year now unused.
Molotov Bang (4 months ago)
hey guys i was wondering if someone could let me know if i should release steam while cooking a full pot on the pressure cooker or if the standard release is enough to keep everything in check. i got mine without instructions and have been figuring it out but i cant find the answer to this.thank you for your time.
Babydolljan G (4 months ago)
I brought the digital power pressure cooker. Took a half hour to get the top to finally close. Magnet top would not click to the pot. Then when my meal was done I let it set for a half hour! Went to open guest what would not open. Call customer service they told me to stick some tongs around the top. Are you kidding me well that didn't work. Three days later that top still would not come off. Back to the store I went, I was prepared for a problem with the store taking the pressure cooker back smooth sailing. There cashier told me I was the 10th customer that had return there pressure cooker for the same problem lol😆!!

I have been showing the ladies in the office pictures of my cooking using the Power Pressure Cooker. They keep saying these are just pictures, you need to cook for us. So…. Yesterday, Valentines day I did. I have a Power Pressure Cooker Xl 6 quart unit. It was one of the first that came out. I put in 3 cups dry washed pinto beans, 3 tb Fiesta brand pinto bean seasoning. I added water to cover the beans about 3” over the beans. I set the pot to cook using the ‘meat’ setting for 1 hour. I have found the meat setting works great for pinto beans that haven’t been soaking all night. After it cooked for an hour I then put about 4 cups sausage in and added ½ large onion. I let that cook for 17 minutes this time on the bean setting. You could smell that great rich pinto beans with sausage smell all over the kitchen. Next I put in pork steaks that was cubed up. I added a large can of cream of mushroom soup and a small can of beef broth. That cooked for 45 minutes. It was fork tender …. Yum ! I brought some flower tortillas. Another lady made a big pot of rice with corn and green onions. We had a great time at lunch and the people now believe I can really cook!

Kathy Leneberg (6 months ago)
when you do step number 2 and it reads 40 and then you start cooking the meat etc. when you put lid on to cook then does it go back to the 40 count down. i noticed when he was doing step 2 the count was going down then, which i was wondering is it really cooking 40 mins

Samantha Ketchopulos (7 months ago)
I've made the mistake of putting veggies & potatoes in there for 40 minutes before, I highly recommend you don't do that, they WILL be mush. If it only takes 20ish minutes to boil potatoes for mashed potatoes and this cooks so much faster you can imagine what they'd look like after 40 minutes! I typically break this meal up into 2 parts. Cook the meat for 20-30 minutes, release pressure & add veggies then cook for another 20 mins.

My wife and I have cooked two pot roasts. Both times using the automatic timer. Both times the meat was cooked (not pink in the middle) but very tough. It was only 2 lbs. Are we overlooking this or undercooking this? Thanks!

When I try to heat my PPC XL I need to have the top on or it constantly beeps.  Whats up with that?  Also, my middle black button says sauce.  hmmmmm   I, Like Christine, am afraid of pressure cookers....hoping this one will make it easier and less frightening.

MrCougar214 (8 months ago)
You do realize your written instructions are vague right? You left out ingredients and focused more on the use of the pressure cooker than the actual recipe. It's a good thing I am a good visual judge of measurements and can follow spoken instructions because you just screwed anyone that relys on the written word! I give you an A for trying to sell a product but an D- for your recipe skills. But "I posted this recipe online, you're gonna be able to see it with this post so don't worry about it".

Is it me or did more meat come out the cooker that went in Little things like that give me pause about the truth of this cooker
Zihorah Husien (8 months ago)
I purchased one from Walmart when I place the lid it does lock in but the lid still is juggling is not firm or very tight can some tell me if that is normal or something is wrong with it, because of that I am scared to use it. I have watched too many videos no one is concentrating on the damn lid how it should be.
Lori Schad (8 months ago)
OH MY GOODNESS! I just learned something new about the pressure cooker! I didn't know I could sear in the pot! Wil definitely be using this more often.
Linda McNeely (8 months ago)
how do I use this cooker as a slow cooker?
Shallini Sheeran (8 months ago)
I was following his directions for cooking and it doesn't work because the veggies will get done sooner. I browned the meat which took half the time and placed the veggies and water into the cooker, closed the lid and it was done in 10 to 15 minutes. I released the pressure knowing that the veggies would be done but the roast wouldn't since it was almost 6 lbs. I removed the cooked veggies and started the process over for 40 minutes instead. Read the directions that came with it. I would personally cook the meat first, release the pressure, open lid and add the veggies for the shorter cooking time to finish them off.

I cooked a prime rib in my XL yesterday and it was amazing!! I was terrified to cook it in the pressure cooker because prime rib is expensive but I took a chance and have no regrets. I started cooking my turkey later than planned yesterday and I don't have a double oven so this pressure cooker was a life saver. It was done in 40 mins.

HELP! I have a 10qt. power pressure XL  I tried to fix a pot roast and it took 1 1/2 hours to get the roast tender.  it was about a 2 1/4 pound chuck roast.  Is this normal because this isn’t saving me much time.  Or is my power pressure not working correctly?
Paula Johnson (9 months ago)
For me, pot roast needs a rich flour-based gravy. Not watery juices or thin runny sauces. Otherwise, the recipe is OK.
