Second batch not as brown - got cover on quicker

Browned for 3 minutes as per instructions. Covered bucket and cooked additional 15 minutes. Let it cool a while in paper towels. Tastes great.
Got the cover on faster so I guess it didn't brown as much.

Put in about 8 pieces cut smaller as shown in the instructions. Used long tongs. Oil simply bubbled up after adding each piece.
Strained the oil and put in in the refrigerator.

Thanks for posting the instructions here.

Should the cube on top of the lid is loose - should it be staked to the lid?

The 3/4" aluminium cube on the top of the lid that connects to the pin which screws down to seal the lid is loose and not connected to the lid.
It appears that the cube was once staked to the lid. This makes it hard to tighten the lid as it does not want to stay on the pin when attaching the lid and trying to get the bottom round part of the cube into the lid while preparing to tighten the round knob with boiling and steaming oil escaping from the center hole in the lid.

Was this cube originally staked to the lid?

If so should I try using a punch to restake it to the lid?
