I suspect the doohickey with rings is a pressure indicator. Generally the first ring to show is a low pressure and the second is a high pressure. The way to use these is to keep the selected pressure-temp.
ring totally visible by adusting stove temperature. The little metal basket is for steaming things. Some pressure cookers come with a round
metal disk that is about 1/4 to 1/2 high or a wire device with three legs, these are different versions of a trivet. These are used to elevate such things as the steaming basket further above water. The round metal trivet with holes in it is usually used to elevate meat away from the bottom of the pressure cooker. Guy has several posts about cooking using a pot in pot method where he uses a pot placed upon a trivet to cook things such as rice. The advantage is to keep vegetables from being in contact with water.

Good luck and let us know if the Macrobiotic school sends you info in English. How I knew to send you there is a friend of mine attended there as well as Ann Marie Colbin's school in New York and she mentioned it to me. She already had a Magefessa and did not purchase the Silit.
