  1. Hi. How long for the pressure in the IP?
    I think you mentioned 10 minutes, but in the recipe instructions it is 0
    Thanks

    1. It takes 10 minutes for the pot to come to pressure but the actual cook time is 0 minutes as the soup will be ready once the soup has pressured and naturally released hence 0 minutes pressure time.
