For Christmas, my husband got me my first ever pressure cooker from Groupon. A beautiful Kitchen Flower Pressure Cooker. I was so excited to use it and cook up delectable masterpieces (ambisyosa!).
BUT there was a problem…
The whole instruction booklet was in KOREAN!!! hahay….
Not to be defeated, I scoured youtube for any reviews or demonstrations, but they were all in Korean too. I also googled to see if there is an english version of the manual.. no luck.
Desperate, I brought the manual with me to my office. I asked an officemate to translate for me (she took basic Korean classes once upon a time..) She was only able to recognize a few words. It helped a little but still not enough for me to use the cooker (I’m too scared to die incase it explodes… watched too much youtube videos…).
Whining and looking oh-so-forlorn that my beautiful pressure cooker would only be for display, my other officemate suggested that I give google translate a try. With no other option left, I installed the app in my phone and tried it out. Then the heavens parted and the angels sang!!
I patiently translated the whole korean manual for 2 days. If you have a pressure cooker like mine, here are some useful/ important pages. (Just click on the image to view in full resolution. DISCLAIMER: THESE ARE ROUGH TRANSLATIONS… GOOD LUCK!!!)
VICTORY IS MIINEE!!! AR! AR! AR!
Yes, it was delicious!! 😀
