Another possibility is that the pressure cooker is left idle for too long, with the pressure inside the pot less than the pressure outside, resulting in its lid hard to open. At this point, we just need to turn on the fire and heat the pot. Also, it happens that the rubber ring in the pot is aging, leading to the cooker hard to open, which is easy to solve. Just apply a layer of peanut oil to the rubber ring and wait for a while. If the pressure cooker used recently cannot be opened suddenly, open both the pressure reducing valve and the safety cap first, and then leave it idle for hours. Finally unscrew them after aligning the holes. Attention should be paid to the technique, instead of brute force.


Although all kinds of cookers are now appearing on the market, do not forget that stainless steel pressure cooker at home, is better applied with a layer of peanut oil near the rubber ring with its lid open before putting it away, so as to avoid it being hard to open.
