Fagor Pressure Cooker's maiden voyage Fail. Advice?

Posted by taypee (My Page) on

I just bought a Fagor multi cooker and thought I'd try it out on beans. First time, I put in two cups of kidney beans unsoaked and six cups of water. The website said if you're using unsoaked beans, cook them for 15+ extra. So I set the timer on high for 25 minutes. I didn't look at the clock, but I'm pretty sure 25 minutes came and went. I smelled beans burning, so I turned it off, opened the valve for steam at the top, and sure enough: they were burned black. I thought maybe I hadn't put in enough water. So I did it again, and made sure I put in enough water. This time, after 15 minutes, I turned it off, waited for the steam to clear, and took a peek. There were beans bubbling in water. So I closed it back up, turned it on for another 10 minutes, opened the valve for steam at the top, waited for it to clear, but the timer just kept going, even though I had pushed the stop button. I unplugged it, opened it up, and they were burned again.

The Fagor's timer never rang. And it was like it didn't even want to turn off.

Should I send this thing back?

I don't know what you're talking about (how does one set a timer on "high"?) but I have no doubt you don't know what you're doing. Please do accept FagorAmerica's invitation.
