It is a sad thing that I have finally learned the joys of cooking in a Pressure Cooker and now the gasket on mine keeps going bad. I am on my third one and now it needs replaced again. So how long are gaskets supposed to last? Perhaps I still don't use my cooker enough to keep the doggone thing from dry-rotting? Or maybe it's time to break down and buy one of those new-fangled fancy ones? No, that's too expensive. The gasket only costs around $5; the cooker around $50 or more! In spite of the fact that the gasket leaked, my beef stew still cooked up quickly and the meat was just as tender as could be! I guess I can still get away with it for cooking, but I had better get a new gasket before I can anything in it!
