Lid jams after cooking
Had similar problems to other users in that after cooking, the lid gets stuck and it is almost is impossible to rotate the locking dial on the lid to the unlock position. It seems to have a vacuum even though it wasn’t on pressure cooker function ( was using on slow cooker high setting). Managed to get it open eventually with brute force. Definitely not reliable in it's operation. Could not recommend.
Perfect cooker, reliable, it saved my life
Loved the high pressure function, we cook meat, stew beef with carrots, make tomato soup, you name it. The cooker is perfect for busy working families because meat could be done within half an hour, melting with nice texture, with the cooker, we don't even want to eat restaurants anymore. We had to eat high salt/oil restaurant food all the time because of our busy schedule and my reluctance/laziness to cook. The cooker is the best thing for "lazy" moms.

Great for three months then lid malfunction
Bought the cooker onlineas an upgrade from a manual stovetop pressure cooker. I liked the look of this model and spent more than I anticipated. When it arrived and I got to see it I realised it has WAY more plastic than i expected for the price tag don't be fooled by the stainless steel wrapping. I really loved cooking with it for three months and the settings and electronics were great BUT then, no surprise really, the plastic locking mechanism on the lid jammed/snapped/broke away.
I did not use excessive force on it even the cogs inside for t...

Worst used it twice lid got stuck.

Present from my son
The cooker looks great. Cost $349. It is difficult to work out how to use, but for anyone with two degrees should be able to manage it.
When we finally got to work out how to use the cooker it Flashes E10 error. So never got to use the cooker. Since my son purchased it from good guys he did not keep his reciept so money gone.
It looks great. It would be better if it worked.

Biggest piece of junk I have owned
I brought this cooker and from day one the slow cooker feature was very average to say the least . I had better results with $49 slow cookers from k mart , however the pressure cooker function worked very well for a short period of time . Then I had problems with getting the lid to open and tonight I had to waste $50 worth of meat because the unit wouldn’t build up pressure . It is out of warranty but I can honestly say it wouldn’t have been used more than 20 times since I brought it ... Last Philips appliance I will ever buy .... do your self a favour and stay away ...

Questions & Answers
I had issues with the locking mechanism. Phillips replace the cover where the rubber ring is now sealed permanently onto the cover and I can’t take out the rubber ring to wash. They say this is an upgraded version. Am puzzled as to how can an upgraded version compromise hygiene ?

I have had the same problem. I am also concerned at how to clean this new version lid too.
Philips representatives: Please note this video link you attached is for the old version lid to clean. The new version does NOT allow for the gasket seal to be removed. It is actually riveted to the metal work. Pks advise. Thx
Hi, I've recently bought the same model as yours and I am having problem locking the lid. Any of you experience the same thing? Thanks
Hello, added a pork shoulder to the Philips pressure cooker today on the high slow cook setting but didn’t lock the lid till a few hours later. I didn’t open it or feel the sides but it would still have been safely cooking during the time before I locked the lid, right?
Not sure but I guess it would be
Thank you for reaching out to us here. We're here to help out! It is important that that the lid is closed at all times when preparing food in the pressure cooker. Have you checked to see if the sealing ring is properly attached? You can determine this by checking if the floater is up or down. If the floater is down, please check the seal ring and reassemble it properly. The seal ring needs to be attached to the lower part of the floater from the inside of the lid. Also make sure that the lever is in the unlock position. Thereafter, close the lid and then lock the lever.

I have the HD2145 all in one cooker and today it showed the error code E10 on the screen. There is no information in the manual to indicate what the fault may be so I called your team (advertised opening hours 7am to 7pm). I called at 2pm Western Australian time to get a message that it is closed. Very disappointed with this as is it is now the day before Good Friday so I assume that the earliest I am going to be able to get a response is next Tuesday. So I am without my main cooking source over the long weekend.
