Quick tips for cooking with a pressure cooker
1) Always put the pressure gauge to "sealed" before starting the cooking process.
2) Make sure that the lid is closed tightly before starting the cooking process
3) When using an electric masher to mash the potatoes, UNPLUG the pressure cooker before using the hand blender
4) When the cooking process is done, move the pressure gauge to release position.  Stand away from the gauge when you release the steam
5) Never leave the pressure cooker unattended when on and always keep children away from it.
