Does Kambrook offer a stainless steel inner bowl for this pressure cooker? I don't trust non-stick coatings at all!

I have been using non stick Kambrook for many months. I have never had a problem with food sticking. Dont use any metal products ( same as non sitck pans). I love this product. The only downside maybe the bowl is not fixed and rotates. A pair of oven mits does the job perfectly.

Hi Sprice - New Clicks secured the rights to the brand name Kambrook in South Africa years ago and is a completely different entity to the Australian-owned Kambrook brand operated in Australia and New Zealand.

There is no affiliation between Kambrook Australia and Kambrook South Africa. New Clicks source and sell their own range of products under the Kambrook brand in that region and as such, we recommend you contact their customer care team for assistance on 0860 25 42 57 or they have ‘contact us’ details on their website www.clicks.co.za

Hope this helps.

Kambrook
OfficialKambrook

Hi John - the temperatures vary based on how much pressure has built up in the appliance. As such, I'm unable to provide specific temperatures on the 1-6 control dial. However, you can find a guide that offers approximate cooking times from the instruction booklet. See page 12: http://www.kambrook.com.au/media/instruction_manuals/KPR600.pdf.

Is this a SLOW Cooker or a PRESSURE COOKer for FAST Cooking ? Or it has modes ?

Hiya,

This is a pressure cooker, not a slow cooker. Its for fast cooking, not slow cooking.

Andrew

As rockres said, its for fast cooking.

Since I posted this review, I can say we still use the pressure cookers every weeks and it works without a hitch.

Pretty good value i say.

Kambrook
OfficialKambrook

Hi Hammad - the KPR600 is a pressure cooker. However, newer products offer multiple cooking functions including slow and pressure cooking. See http://www.kambrook.com.au/in-the-kitchen/cooking/slow-and-pressure-cookers.html.

I am unsure of the pressure regulator/release valve is in the right position can you help me? the book is not very clear to me

3 answers
Andrew
Andrew

Hey there... if you are looking at the dial, the pressure regulator/release valve should be pointing to the left for lock and pointing toward the dial for unlocked. Hope this helps?

Thank you I will keep trying

Kambrook
OfficialKambrook

Hi Longnanabrendawilliams - make sure the pressure regulator/release valve is sitting in the sealed position. If this part isn't in the venting position, the Pressure Express will not build up enough pressure to cook. You can find a visual of this in fig 7 online, see page 10: http://www.kambrook.com.au/media/instruction_manuals/KPR600.pdf

Guyasked

Can I place the timing dial between numbers eg half way between 1 and off would that allow me to cook for 3:5 mins safely? As sometimes 10 min is not enough but putting it back on another 7 mins could ruin the dish.
Love the product though.

John

Johnasked

I am interested in buying a Kambrook KPR600 for rice cooking.
I have had problems with my previous rice cooker because of flaking teflon.
I was wondering if the non-stick coating on the inner cooking bowl was prone to flaking over the life of the product, particularly as the cooking is done under pressure.
Will the non-stick coating last for the 500 hours that Kambrook has tested the KPR600 for?
Thank you

Hi John! I haven't had mine for long enough to be able to answer whether or not the Teflon coating will last that long. Sorry I can't be of more assistance!

Kambrook
OfficialKambrook

Hi John - the non-stick coating will last for 500 hours provided you follow the correct care tips (i.e. don't use chemicals, steel wool, metal scouring pads or abrasive cleaners on the bowl). You can find more information in the instruction booklet: http://www.kambrook.com.au/media/instruction_manuals/KPR600.pdf.

What pressure (PSI rating) does the cooker reach?

3 answers
Sammy B
Sammy B

Hi Peter
I'm not sure of the PSI, but have been following the directions for online electric pressure cooker recipes, and found the timing seems spot on. Perhaps most electric pressure cookers have similar PSI specs? There are many websites with electric pressure cooker recipes, and after trying quite a few different recipes, have not had any issues. The manual gives you basic cooking times for different cuts of meat, etc.

MadSim

Like Sammy B I don't know the technical of the pressure cooker, but have found the cooking times pretty accurate. Further tech info contact Kambrook 1300 139 798

Kambrook

Hi Peter - both of our pressure cookers (models KPR600 and KPR800) work to a maximum 15 PSI and operate to 'high' pressure only. For further product enquiries, please contact Kambrook's customer care team on 1300 139 798 or e-mail askus@kambrook.com.au. Thank you.

Raewynasked

Concerns about cooking in the 6L Aluminium bowl. I have always believed cooking in Aluminium is very unhealthy. If I buy anything that has been in an aluminium container, I can taste the aluminium all through the food. So I imagine cooking in aluminium would be the same

2 answers
Ange
Ange

No I don't taste any aluminium metallic taste at all. As the food is cooked so quickly it really seals in the flavours of the ingredients. I am sure the container is tested to ensure it is safe for use. it has a non stick coating on it as well.

Kambrook
OfficialKambrook

All Kambrook Slow Cooker/Pressure Cooker bowels are non-stick coated, the food will only come in contact with the food grade (food safe) non-stick coating. Hence there should be no taste of aluminium through the food. It is advised that all cooking bowls are washed prior to first use, however this is only to remove any grime that has built up during manufacturing of product.

the manual tells you to use the rice cup to measure the rice; do we use 1 rice cup of rice and ordinary cup measurement for the stock or are we supposed to use the rice cup as a cup measure for all recipes?

1 answer
Ange

I don't think it really matters . Depends on how much liquid you want in yr meal . Bit of trial and error really . I use the rice cup measure for both . You can't really go wrong unless you don't have enough liquid .

Suemcasked

Is this a powered appliance. Or cooktop only?

1 answer
Agnetes
Agnetes

It is electric. It sits on your bench top. It only makes that high pitched pressure cooker noise for a few seconds when it is building up pressure and after that it's completely quiet. Unlike the stovetop one that my mother had which made a frightening collection of noises for the whole cooking process

Can I cook meat on the trivet supplied instead of having the meat sit in the liquid in the bottom of cooker?

2 answers
PeterP29
PeterP29

Hi Margie, you can brown meat etc (use the setting on the dial) in the supplied container but the heat is fairly mild, I prefer to brown the meat in a separate pan and then add to the container with liquid for pressure cooking. I've found the cooker to be quite good and easy to use. Happy cooking.

Margie97
Margie97

I would like to cook a marinated roast on top of the metal trivet instead of the meat sitting in the liquid.
Has anyone tried this? The browning of the meat is good in the unit, but I don't want the tasty marinade going into the juice in the bottom when cooking.
