Mirro Replacment Pressure Regulator Control
The Mirro Pressure Cooker Replacement Pressure Regulator, part number S-9898, allows you to regulate the pressure inside your pressure cooker. This special feature allows your pressure cooker to be multi-functional.
The pressure regulator is normally the only way that steam can be released from your lid. The Mirro Pressure Regulator features 3 different settings, 5 psi, 10 psi, or 15 psi. Where you set the pressure settings depends partly on the food that you are cooking.
Over time however, the pressure regulator will begin to fail. Like any safety feature on your pressure cooker, you should inspect them before each use in order to prevent serious injuries.
