On Monday I put some cooked rice in my 10 liter pressure cooker to re-heat. I turned the burner on high. I was going to wait for the pc to start hissing steam to be an alarm to turn it down. Unfortunately I forgot that I had turned the stove on and left for about 35 minutes. When I got back the pc was hissing steam at high temp on the stove. I immediately moved the pressure cooker to a burner that was off and released the pressure with the button designed for that purpose. When I opened it there was just a tiny residue of water on the bottom of the unit. Another minute or so and it would have totally boiled away and probably would have ruined a good pc. However the reheated rice was fine. I ate it & it tasted great. It was in a stainless steel insert (actually a stainless mixing bowl) about 2" off the bottom on a tripod.

If you don't want foods to burn, stick or scorch, I suggest cooking with inserts. It takes a little longer but the results are great. Also, check out the numerous posts down this board that I have made on the subject. Hope this helps.
