This is the little plastic cap that fits on top of the pressure valve, and this one is for current models. This part measures about 9/16" in diameter. Threaded hole on the underside simply screws onto the top of the valve stem. Sold only as a pair. Note the shape: These have a straight-sided cylindrical shape, and the shape is how you should identify whether this is the cap needed for your cooker.

To be sure you get the right item, please check the parts page before ordering.

Has it been a while since you replaced your cooker's gasket? Gaskets need to be replaced periodically, as they harden over time and stop sealing, which causes pressure loss. It’s a gradual process that’s easy to overlook, but performance declines and before long your cooker won’t work at all. It's a good idea to keep a backup gasket on hand too, in case yours gets nicked or damaged by a stove burner, etc. You'll find all Kuhn Rikon gaskets on this page. Another crucial part that requires periodic replacement is the UL/SI valve. You don't need to replace it until it starts losing pressure, but once it does, performance will go downhill fast. For this reason, we recommend replacing the UL/SI valve at least every 3-4 years. You'll find the Kuhn Rikon UL/SI valve here. Kuhn Rikon gasket replacement Kuhn Rikon SI/UL valve replacement, #1565

  • Exactly what I needed!
    By on - Verified Buyer
    Easy to order and I now have an extra as they came in a two-pack. We have enjoyed using our pressure cooker for many many years so its understandable that the rubber parts would eventually deteriorate. Ours lasted a long time but I am glad to have the new valve caps so we can continue to enjoy our cooker!

  • it is cheap
    By on - Verified Buyer
    The only reason I've ordered it is simple: old part has the thread lost. If I where the boss, this little plastic piece would have metal insert with thread to connect to a plunger.
