Not all cookware can be used under pressure. For example, there are many little scratches in the non-stick coating that may crack under pressure.
A pressure cooker’s lid is sealed so that the steam cannot escape the pot when pressure is built up.
If there is any gap or a space in the pot, the steam will escape and that will lower the pressure.

Pressure cooker safety precautions
Pressure cookers are a great tool for preparing delicious meals in a short amount of time, but they’re also capable of creating dangerous situations if you don’t know the correct safety precautions.
While pressure cookers are generally safe, they come with risks and dangers that can’t be ignored.
If you’re not careful, it can be dangerous. That’s why it’s important to keep up with proper safety precautions.
Do not fill it more than half full with cooking liquid or ingredients
Pressure cookers function by trapping steam inside a sealed vessel at high temperature; this pressure causes the boiling point of water to rise.
A pressure cooker is essentially a sealed pot with a pressure regulator that controls the pressure level.
By setting the regulator to a high setting, you can drastically reduce cooking time while also ensuring foods will stay moist and tender.
When using a pressure cooker, adjust the heat so the cooker boils gently and steadily, with only a few bubbles breaking the surface.
1. Pot cannot be used on a gas hob
It is impossible to use a pressure cooker and a gas hob at the same time.
If you have a gas hob and a pressure cooker, then you will need to find another hob to use while the pot is in the pressure cooker.
You must not use a gas hob to boil pot. The gas hob is only for cooking food. This is not a joke! Pot can only be boiled on an electric hob. Gas is a volatile liquid and can’t be boiled on a solid surface. The gas will be in contact with the hot plate and will escape, so you will have no pot left, and a broken gas hob.
2. Pressure cookers should not be placed on a wooden work surface
Pressure cookers should not be placed on a wooden work surface, because the steam coming out of the pressure cooker can damage the surface, and cause the wood to expand.
When the wood expands, it causes the pressure cooker to move, which can cause the lid to come off, and hot steam to be released. This can be dangerous to the person nearby.
3. Always make sure you have the correct cooker for the recipe
As a home cook, its important to have all the right utensils for all the different dishes you can prepare.

Electric cookers tend to be quite different from traditional stovetop cookers, and knowing the difference can help you make the right choice when purchasing.
4. Do not force the lid into place
A pressure cooker is a type of cooker that uses steam pressure to raise the boiling point of water, allowing the cooking of food at higher temperatures than normally possible.
This results in the ability to cook foods faster than in other cooking methods.
Pressure cookers have a sealing mechanism, usually a valve, that causes the pressure to rise inside the cooker.
With the exception of pressure cookers with a pop-up pressure release mechanism, there is a danger of the lid being forced into the air release opening of the cooker as a result of over-pressure.
This could cause the contents to spill out and scald the user. In the worst-case scenario, the pressure cooker itself might explode.

Moreover, there is no conventional way to release pressure from the pressure cooker.
One has to apply the unconventional ways like opening the pressure cooker on the ground.
