The Prep Time and Cook Time fields allow for flexible time information. However, to calculate the Total Time correctly, you must format the Prep and Cook Time fields properly. 

The Prep and Cook Time fields must have a time in minutes, hours, or a combination thereof. Any extra information that is not a time in minutes or hours must be included in parentheses. For example, the following are valid inputs for the time fields:

  • 15 minutes
  • 1 hour, 5 minutes
  • 65 minutes
  • 15 minutes (plus cooling time)
  • 15 minutes (plus 5 minutes cooling time) ⬅ this would only use the "15 minutes" in the total time calculation
  • 15 minutes (includes cooling time)
  • 15 minutes (at high pressure)
  • 15 minutes (up to 20 minutes)

The following are not valid inputs for the time fields and will result in erroneous Total Time calculation:

  • 15 minutes plus cooling time
  • 1 hour, including cooling time
  • 20 minutes at high pressure
  • 15-20 minutes
