To test this, fill the inner pot two-thirds full with water, place the lid on the power pressure cooker, rotate the pressure valve to the “Locked” position, and run the unit on the canning mode for 10 minutes.
Once the timer reaches zero, open the pressure release valve carefully with tongs or a potholder to protect your hand from hot steam that escapes. Let the unit cool, pour out the water, dry the unit off, and if everything went smoothly, your rubber gasket fits and you’re good to go.
