The pressure cooker people sent me a new one for free! Turns out the one I had was defective. Which is great because almost all of our meals come from the pressure cooker.
Also a mouse update: I stepped on a glue trap in my bare feet. It was quite difficult to remove, but I managed to keep most of the skin on my toes. If only I could convince the mouse to give it a try. Mouse 2, Humans 0.
Pressure cooker update: Made spicy chorizo lentil soup. Six cups of water was too much.
