Be prepared to figure this thing out on your own
on July 19, 2017
After reading the amazing reviews, I had to try this. I have never used a pressure cooker in my life, and I figured that this would come with a manual and maybe a small recipe booklet or at least some guidance. There was none. The manual that is included doesn't explain anything. I attempted to try to figure it out on my own. I put chicken in and pressed meat. The pot started but never shut off. A digital timer displayed but never counted down. I had to eventually unplug it myself and then the chicken was overlooked. Then I attempted to cook rice. The same thing happened. I pressed rice but the timer never worked and I eventually had to unplug it myself and then the rice was not cooked properly. I tried to look at a hohm website and All I could find was an email. I sent them an email two days ago and never got any kind of response. There is no customer service number at all to ask any kind of question. I am returning this item tomorrow and I am going to look into ordering a different brand pressure cooker thar has much more guidance. All this thing did was give me a headache and wasted food. I am very confused about the great reviews on this product.
