Air pressure is lower at higher altitude, therefore the boiling point of water is also lower and will take more time to come to pressure. Pressure cookers increase the pressure on liquids, which increases the boiling point of water.
You will need to adjust almost all recipes slightly when 3000 feet or move above sea level. See our easy guide for high altitude cooking which covers, baking, cooking, boiling, microwaving, pressure cooking and frying!
They will all have the same issues at high altitude, the concern is with sea level not the actual appliance.
