I need to work out how to manually set the cooking time on the pressure-cooker but reading the Chinese manual is a daunting task. I can help with this, even though it is not an elegant solution. I press one of the other pre-set buttons. For example, if I am cooking 排骨 but only want to give them 10 or 12 minutes of pre-cooking, I put them in the pot and press the "chicken" button. Or if I only want to give them 5 or 6 minutes, I press the "fish" button. (The actual time shows up on the dial when the pot is working, even though you cannot see it now, in my photo.) On the other hand, if I wanted to give some really tough beef 70 minutes, I would run them through two complete "beef" cycles (which on my pot are 35 minutes each.) Might add that my pressure cooker has a button for increasing or decreasing the heat a little bit and another similar one for increasing or decreasing the pressure just a little. Both must be programmed in at the beginning of the cooking cycle, cannot be done later on the fly. (Temperature is the 口感 button on the left. Pressure is the 压力 button on the right.) Reading the instruction book that came with mine was a fool's errand. It mainly had safety warnings, such as don't accidentally cook your neighbor's cat and don't try to eat the silicone sealing gasket. A few other helpful tips, like "plug it in before use." 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
