Thanks very much but I had already tried all the recommended cleaning shown in the videos. I am still not sure what is happening.

@ElsieD wow.  That sauce!  That nice clean Frenched bone!  Classic accompaniments also look amazing.  Hope you had a nice bottle of red to go with.

Sauce was good.  I use the standard onions, carrots and celery when I cook the shanks and then strain it all out and reduce the sauce.  Works well.  Pinot Noir was part of the liquid along with beef broth.

 

Edited to add:  the shanks were already frenched.

Back home from England and brought a few cooking tricks home with me..these roasted spuds O M G ! 4 minute medium rare roast beast again...season, saute on both sides in oil , manual high pressure for 4 minutes and leave in pot 1 hour. Slice thinly. Broc and cheese sauce, honey roasted parsnips and Ahhh Bisto gravy mix! My nieces birthday dinner.

Awaiting that answer as well; they DO look marvelous. 

 

What cut of roast was it? And what was the tenderness status, as compared to more conventional medium rare roast beef preps?

These are roasted spuds my Aunt in England showed me how to make: Preheat oven to 425 to 450.Peel whole potatoes, boil in salted water 4 to7 minutes until the outside is softened to about 1 cm in. Drain in the pot and with lid on shake the bejeebus out of the spuds to rough them up. Use a heavy pan..cast iron is great and pour VEGETABLE OIL *this is the secret to the crispiness* You can preheat the oil in the oven if you want. Then toss spuds in and coat them in the oil and salt aggressively. Cook 30 to 45 minutes until crispy brown, turning once.

Roast was on sale last week wasTop Sirloin. The texture is good, I carve it thin. Its not melt in your mouth but its not tough. I've done this method three times now and was happy with the results each time. What is missing is the end crust from oven roasting.

I finally heard back from the support people but annoyingly they asked me to perform all the tests again!   Since I had done them and sent the photographs that they requested I am not prepared to repeat it all again.  I responded in this manner to them.

Hold on to your wallets, everyone!

 

I just read that the IP people are coming out with a new version this spring.  It will have 8 functions, the eighth function being a canning one.  In addition to that, it will also have an automatic stirrer for making things like risotto, new venting options and an easy-to-read  screen.  Expected price about $200.

@ElsieD

 

interesting

 

the stirrer  really complicates things.   hope it works.

 

and based on @Anna N  unfortunate customer service experience 

 

Im wondering if they have grown so large they have forgotten that customer service was a big part of their growth.

Doggoned if I see the need in a canner that size. I guess if you were doing small -batch stuff. What can you put in there, three pint jars, maybe? Although, if I'm small-batching, it's likely either pickles or some sort of jam or preserve, and I can just get out my stock pot if I don't want to fool with the big canner.

All veggies done in the IP...sliced spuds, a splash of chicken stock, add cream and butter, 2 green onions, 4 cloves garlic, butter, salt and pepper. Manual high for 4 minutes...let sit as long as you like, mash the curdled looking mess and keep on warm. Broc and carrots 1/4 cup of salted water 4 minutes, leave to warm as long as you need. Roast piggy from our 1/2 pig we get from a friend each year. Cracklin' omg cracklin!

Before his sudden final illness, my father asked me about the IP and its kin specifically for that reason. He frequently wanted to try small batches of things, and thought it would be more practical for him than a full-sized pressure canner. 

Given the "not recommended for canning" verdict given electric pressure cookers by the USDA, he ultimately did buy the full-sized canner but didn't get the chance to use it.

 Well it took a little back-and-forth between me and the support people but they are shipping me a new base. They do not require return of the old base but suggest I recycle it according to my municipality rules.

 This is what they said:

 

“Thank you for providing me with that information. This type of issue is caused by a problem with the pressure sensor, and you will need a new cooker base.”
