SKU: GP266, Part Number: 1621, Shop more Kuhn Rikon items


This is the valve housing that fits on top of the lid, on current models. It also functions as the steam deflector. It clips into place over the valve cap. Note the shape: This item has a conical shape. (If your housing is "bell" shaped, see item 3852 below, instead.) Diameter is 3-3/4".

When you remove this part for cleaning, if you remove it by lifting its edge from only one side, it will come up crooked, and that can cause the retention clips underneath to break. If you instead slip your fingernails (using two hands) just under the rim of the housing on opposite sides of the rim-circle, you can then pull it straight upward without it getting crooked, and the retention clips won't break.

  • Pressure cooker valve housing
    By on - Verified Buyer
    In general I love Kuhn Rikon pressure cookers. However it is very frustrating the frequency which the valve housing has to be replaced when the plastic supports break off.

  • Part and service were fine
    By on - Verified Buyer
    I wish there was a way to repair the plastic part and reuse the amazing steel material that is just wasted because of plastic parts that go with it.

  • Perfect fit and finish

    The new valve lid functions perfectly, distributing excess steam as it should, while keeping the valve from debris.
