Universal Pressure Gasket Reviews:
As we have searched online looking for folks that have experienced the same problem as you we came across a mixed set of reviews. Some reviewers mentioned the part number was stamped on the original gasket or seal while others had to cross reference between the model number of their pressure cooker.
When you don’t see many reviews for products it leads us to believe that it is a good quality gasket. Some of the negative reviews implied that the gasket was not as thick or the exact right size for their pressure cooker.
Unfortunately there is no way to revive your old pressure seal gasket and the universal pressure gasket may not fit your pressure cooker perfectly. But then again you may find that this one fits better.
You’ll immediately know if this universal gasket will work or not because of how it fits first and then by testing your pressure cooker to see if it holds pressure.
In the end, you need to either replace your gasket seal with a new one or upgrade and buy a new pressure cooker. We suggest taking the inexpensive route first always but educate yourself on the return/exchange policies which are fairly lenient.
Universal Pressure Gasket Installation
Read the instructions before replacing. Many reviewers mentioned that user manual suggests lubricating the gasket sealing ring prior to installation, for example, with vegetable oil.
