SOURCE: Steam escapes from pressure cooker

That is what happened to mine and I notice it was not the gasket, but plastic lock on the inside of the handle, it broke. Why make is out of plastic and controlled with a spring? DuH? This controls locking the handle and also hold the small pressure valve done. This caused the steam to escape before item is cooked even if it's not 100% broke and lid still locks.

I am confused is the russell hobbs slow cooker a slow cooker or is it a pressure cooker i am looking for a pressure cooker not a slow cooker

Russel Hobbs makes both a slow cooker and a pressure cooker - confusingly in Europe they call Slow Cookers pressure cookers. The only way to really tel is if there is a special lid with valves and locks (pressure cooker) not a glass or plain lid (slow cooker).
