New Fagor with smelly gasket...
I have had my Fagor for over a month now and have used it 10 to 12 times and am pleased with its performance except... .I need some advice about the gasket. Even though I wash it thoroughly after each use it is holding on to old cooking odors. Any suggestions anyone?
I noticed that too -- in my last cooking. The strong smell/odor from my last cooking was on my lid and I narrowed the source down to the gasket. I washed it with water and the odor was mostly gone.
If the smell bothers you, you can always take the gasket out and boil it in a hot water with baking soda or hot water with vinegar.
On the other hand, I feel this will shorten the lifespan of your gasket.
Unfortunately, this comes with the territory. You can try soaking in vinegar or baking soda water.
If it still bothers you, you might be better served with a gasketless design PC like the All-American. Or buy a lot of replacement gaskets.
