Now I have just purchased for $5 a never-been-used T-Fal Safe 2 pressure cooker from Kijiji,thinking I could use it in the same way as in days of yore, but for blistering Poblanos, deep frying Won Tons, etc.
In went the oil, up went the heat, and then strange things happened. The oil bubbled like crazy at 100 degrees Celsius...not very hot even...and soon big blurps were happening in the oil. Something was not right. I quickly transferred the oil to a 'safe' and known pot and did the blistering.
I've done something stupid, right? You can't deep fry in teflon (or whatever the coating is)? The pot needs some other kind of seasoning type use first? Toss it out?
Help, please. And thanks.
Needless to say, there was NO lid on the pot.
