Teresa, i Agree With Nina. i Like to Saute my onions, carrots, And celery --- But These Should be *finelyChopped* And Should Have Melted Into The Sauce Anyway After 10 Minutes of Cooking (even Without Sauteing).

What is The Psi Value For The High-Pressure Setting on Your Cooker (check Your Manual)? on Mine, HighPressure = 15 Psi (the Common High Pressure Value). That Value Can Effect The Cooking Time For Your Meats AndVeggies. When i Want 1-Inch Slices of celery in a Stew to be Almost Crisp-Tender (a Bit Softer), i Cook ThemFor 5 Minutes at High Pressure, With a Quick-Release.

Steve, Your Comment About Acids Toughening Vegetables is Very Interesting And I'd Like to Know More AboutThat. i Know That Too Many Acids Will Toughen Dried beans to Some Extent When Cooking Them. That Could beVery Useful in Working With The Timing of a Recipe, Don't You Think? do You Have Any Resources For That IssueAnd Would You Please Share Them? my Curiosity Would Love to do Some Research on That.

One Last Thing: tomato Products (including tomato Paste) Should be Poured on *top* of The Rest of TheIngredients And *not Stirred In* Before Cooking. This Will Reduce or Eliminate The Scorching Problem AndMight Help a Little With The Acid Reaction That Steve Mentioned.

A Heat Diffuser Under The Cooker Will Help a Scorching Problem Too.
