Fagor 10-Inch Silicon Gasket by Pressure Cookers
Updated on 1-8-2013.
A soft, pliable gasket is a necessity for keeping a pressure cooker operating safely. When a gasket becomes worn or dried out, steam may begin to escape and won't build up properly. This ten-inch silicon gasket is designed specifically for Fagor eight- and ten-quart pressure cookers, and is not intended for use with any other brand. The gasket should be washed in warm, soapy water and rinsed thoroughly before initial use. Suggested replacement is every 12 to 18 months. --Ann Bieri
People seem to be having a lot of trouble finding the right size for their cooker, before you order go to the Fagor website [...] and look up your particular model, then click on teh "Replacement Parts" link in the lower right corner. It gives a detailed explanation of which one you need.I purchased this because the one that came with mine got damaged suddetly, I'm not sure how because I haven't had it long. I inspect it before each use though and noticed a big chunk of it missing. Hopefully I'll have better luck this time around.
