1. Stop 3-in-1 Cooker by pressing the START/STOP button.

2. Turn Pressure Regulator Knob to Steam, using short bursts, until pressure is fully released.

3. Remove Lid and add approximately 1 cup water, stock or other liquid. Stir food to disperse added liquid.

4. Replace Lid and lock into place. Turn Pressure Regulator Knob to Pressure.

5. Press HIGH or LOW pressure button and set desired cooking time.

2. Release any pressure by turning Pressure Regulator Knob to Steam, using short bursts, until pressure is fully released.

3. Remove Lid and check Rubber Gasket for tears, cracks or other signs of damage.
