Your Cooking Pot must always be inside your Power Pressure Cooker XL casing. Do not pour anything into your Power Pressure Cooker XL, without the Cooking Pot in place. The condensation collector gets attached to the upper back side of your Power Pressure Cooker XL. It snaps into place.
The first thing to do is a “Water Test.” Basically, this Water Test is just to show you how your Power Pressure Cooker XL works, so that you feel confident in making your first recipe. Add two cups of water to your Power Pressure Cooker XL cooking pot. Check your lid to make sure your Silicone Gasket is in place. That is the clear round ring that fits snugly inside your lid, around the silver disk. Place the lid on your Power Pressure Cooker XL and line up the arrows. Turn the lid to the right, until it locks in place. Close the Pressure Valve on the lid. It toggles back and forth and is supposed to be loose.

Press the Meat Button on the front of your Power Pressure Cooker XL and then adjust the timer until it says 5 minutes. That’s it. In a few minutes, the silver pin will rise, letting you know that your Power Pressure Cooker XL is up to pressure. Your Power Pressure Cooker XL will go from “On,” to 5 and count down. Once the time has reached 0, you will hear a Beep. Do nothing. The pressure will start to release on its own. This is called Natural Pressure Release (“NPR”). When the silver pin on the lid drops, it means that all the pressure has been released. Turn your Pressure Valve to Open and then open the lid on your Power Pressure Cooker XL.
That’s it. Push the “Off” button. You are ready to cook your first meal.
