Pressure plugs for Mirro pressure cookers
[Return to Topics]

Son got careless in the kitchen, and blew the safety plug (fuse) on my Mirro pressure cooker. Went to my local hardware store and asked for a replacement... He came up with some sort of plastic plug - said he couldn't get the old thread-in type. Gave me an 800 number for Mirro, that didn't work. Went online, and got another 800 number and got met with an answering robot. Finally e-mailed Mirro, and yes, they don't make or stock the old thread in type plugs anymore. (Apparently want you to buy a new cooker.) Went looking at other hardware stores, specializing in old established stores in small towns. Found a store that had them! Bought a bunch! (Rather pricy, BUT...) When I got 'em home, label on back of package said "Dist By: Red Hill General Store". Did some more research on the internet, and found they have a website: And they stock the elusive plugs! You've got to look for them in their website, as they are a little burried, but their number is #9888. They are different from Mirro's in that Mirro used what looked like a metal element, and Red Hill's are plastic, so we'll wait and see how good they are... But there's a source if you're about to trash your Mirro!

Thanks for the mother has been looking for a replacement. She ended up buying a new pressure cooker but kept the old one around with hopes of finding a pressure plug. I am going to order her one today. Thanks!
