A rubber gasket's primary purpose is to create a constant tight seal. Over time a gasket can dry out and lose its elasticity. If you notice this happening, replace the gasket immediately. A worn out gasket can lead to steam not building up, or worse, escaping from your cooker.

The rubber gasket is the key part in forming the tight seal when you lock your pressure cooker for steaming. Every now and then, your gasket needs replacing to keep your pressure cooker working at its highest capacity. With about a 9 inch diameter, this gasket fits all 6-quart and smaller Fagor pressure cookers. --Cristina Vaamonde

At the lab we use copper gaskets to maintain ultrahigh vacuum levels in our experimental equipment. These are similar to the rubber o-rings you find as seals in various devices. As the knife edges of the vacuum flanges press into the copper they create a tremendously high quality seal, which enables much better vacuum than is achievable with more familiar materials. I took this photo for the LBNL photo club's April theme, "Motion," by carefully letting a few gaskets slip out of my fingers with my camera on burst mode. It took a few tries to get the right shot.
