Today we're shipping orders for in-stock items placed November 13. Our Hampton showroom is temporarily closed. Despite high order volume, our amazing shipping team is rapidly reducing processing times—we’ve recently added 20 new team members! We greatly appreciate your business and we’re doing our very best to serve you, as Jim C. of California tells. A word to the wise: Because resupply of many product lines remains daunting, and processing times may grow again in coming weeks, there’s never been a year like this to do your Christmas shopping and other year-end buying very early!

Valve Caps #3853: This is the little plastic cap that fits on top of the pressure valve, and this one is for older models. This part measures about 7/8" 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 tapered sides, 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

    Original genuine replacement part for my ancient Kuhn Rikkon pressure cooker that i couldn't find anywhere. Pleasant Hill Grain, thank you for carrying this item and shipping it fast. You prevented this pressure cooker from littering our landfill. Pressure cooker is as good as new now.

    I was very excited to find a valve cap for my old Kuhn Rikon pressure cooker. They delivered fast and it was just what I needed. Not only did I get one, but two, which I didn't see available on other websites. Plus, the shipping cost wasn't out of this world to ship these two little pieces to Alaska. Thank you, Pleasant Hill Grain! I'm keeping your contact information!
