I decided to make some rajma today (thick north Indian kidney bean soup). I pulled out my pressure cooker, rinsed off the dried beans and tossed them into the pressure cooker.
Like a fool, I had pulled out the insert where you're supposed to put the food and didn't replace it before I rinsed the beans. So, I dumped the beans directly into the base unit. I removed most of them, but can hear beans rattling around, out of sight.
Any idea where I can get the pressure cooker repaired? I really hate to throw it away; it works beautifully other than the stray beans in there. I'm in Arlington, but I could take it to any appliance repair shop in the metro area. I've tried looking online, but most appliance repair shops cater go larger appliances. I'd also like to avoid mailing it, since shipping costs could end up eating away any savings I get from repairing, rather than replacing.
