The instruction booklet is a little wonkey on the topic of steam coming out of the pot... so here is what works for me. The red ball hole is the first thing to make steam. It will steam and fissle for about 15-30 seconds, then it will all suddenly stop when the red ball comes up and blocks the hole. Keep it on high heat for a few more minutes until puffs of steam start coming out of the high or low setting nozzle(whichever you put it on when you started- I use high for stocks). THEN put it on the lowest flame setting and start timing. Occasionally small wisps of steam come out of the nossle...that's what is supposed to happen. The instructions say if steams starts coming out of the vent ON THE SIDE OF THE COVER...shut it off immediately...the pressure went too high. If you are a soup/stock lover, you will never forgive yourself if you don't make pressure cooker stocks...I don't know why or how, but they are SOOOOOO much better than regular stockpot versions!
It's described by the manufacturer as "Super Fast" and it is that, for sure. Forget about the recipe's cooking times, cook about half the recommended time (on high pressure), fast-cool it with a cold water spray, open it and check the doneness of your food or you're liable to wind up with meat-mush. It will make carrot-paste out of whole carrots (notoriously slow cookers) in 15 minutes on high-pressure. I'm not criticizing the beautiful cooker, just offering a heads-up to prospective buyers. I love the way it cooks!
One other thing I'll repeat from earlier reviews is that the pot is surprisingly tall and narrow, compared to most pressure cookers (8 1/2" inside diameter). This is good for foamy things, like beans and cereals, and not so much for large items, like a slab of chuck roast. This is not a bad thing, just a different thing.
I have used aluminum and steel pressure cookers before. The aluminum ones rust and do not distribute the heat as well. This cooker in particular is great distributing the heat. You can see the thick multilayered bottom which is designed for this purpose and does a fantastic job. You realize of this when you open the cooker and you see that there is nothing stacked to the bottom like in cheaper models, where some areas are heated more than other and the food gets stacked and not evenly cooked.
The handles feel very sturdy and solid even after months of use (I've had it for 6 months using it one to three times a week).
The pressure regulator can be removed and washed. This is something I have never seen before in these kind of cookers and it is very nice, because the regulator always gets a little build up and end up failing. But in this case you can take it off and clean it.
The manual have some typos and sloppy translations but frankly nothing too terrible, and it is super easy to use.
These cookers are built in Spain and are not cheaply done in china, so there is an extra level of quality there.
The only con is that is a little heavy, but after all it is stainless steel so what could you expect.
