Cleaning: Dishwasher & Hand-Washing
The unit should be cleaned thoroughly after every use.
Unplug the unit from the wall socket before cleaning.
To clean the cooker base and the control panel, wipe them clean with a damp cloth.
The pressure lid, cooking pot, silicone ring, reversible rack, Cook & Crisp™ Basket and detachable diffuser can be washed in the dishwasher.
The pressure release valve and anti-clog cap, can be washed with water and dish soap.
To clean the crisping lid, wipe it down with a wet cloth or paper towel after the heat shield cools.
If food residue is stuck on the cooking pot, reversible rack, or Cook & Crisp Basket, fill the pot with water and allow to soak before cleaning. DO NOT use scouring pads. If scrubbing is necessary, use a non-abrasive cleanser or liquid dish soap with a nylon pad or brush. 7 Air-dry all parts after each use.
Removing & Reinstalling the Silicone Ring
To remove the silicone ring, pull it outward, section by section, from the silicone ring rack. The ring can be installed with either side facing up. To reinstall, press it down into the rack section by section. After use, remove any food debris from the silicone ring and anti-clog cap.
Keep the silicone ring clean to avoid odour
Washing it in warm, soapy water or in the dishwasher can remove odour. However, it is normal for it to absorb the smell of certain acidic foods. It is recommended to have more than one silicone ring at hand.
NEVER pull out the silicone ring with excessive force, as this may deform it and the rack and affect the pressure-sealing function. A silicone ring with cracks, cuts, or other damage should be replaced immediately
