6
Do not place the unit directly under cabinets when operating
as this product produces large amounts of steam. Avoid
reaching over the Steamer when operating.
Always use hot pads during steaming to remove the Cover or
any part of the unit to avoid steam burns.
Steaming times will vary depending on desired doneness and
food quantity, size and arrangement. The cooking times in the
Steaming Guide are suggested times. You may want to
lengthen/shorten cooking times to suit your taste.
NOTE: If the desired cooking time is less than 15 minutes,
first turn the Timer past 15 minutes and then turn to desired
cooking time
Altitude affects the temperature at which water boils. Thus in
higher altitudes longer cooking times may become necessary.
3
Some water will remain in the Water Reservoir after the
Steamer has turned off; this is normal.
Do not use any Steamer parts in microwave or on any
cooking/heated surface.
How To Use
COOKING IN THE
STEAMING BOWL
(See Steaming Guide for suggested
cooking times, techniques and water
fill levels.)
CAUTION: To avoid steam burns and
when checking foods while cooking,
use long handled utensils/tongs.
Always use potholders to remove
Cover. When removing the Cover, be
careful to lift Cover slowly.
Fill Water Reservoir with cold tap water
to appropriate fill line. For added flavor,
you may add lemon juice, chicken
broth, white wine and herbs/spices to
the water in the Reservoir. Do NOT use
beer, red wine, oil, spice extracts (i.e.,
vanilla) or fruit juices in the Reservoir.
Hold the Drip Tray by the handle and
place it into the Base. (Figure A )
Figure A
NOTE: The Drip Tray is always used
whenever the Rice Bowl is not used. It
prevents fats/juices of some foods
from dripping into the water and
bubbling up into the Steaming Bowl. If
you choose, save these juices for
gravies, sauces, soup stock, etc.
4
Place the foods to be steamed into
the Steaming Bowl. You may add
seasonings, such as lemon slices, fresh
dry herbs, seafood seasoning mix, etc.
to the food.
Place the Cover on the Steaming Bowl.
Make sure the handles line up over
each other and the tabs fit properly into
the openings.
Put the Steaming Bowl onto the Base.
Plug the cord into an electrical outlet.
Set the Timer for the desired cooking
time. When the time is up, a bell will
ring, the Cooking Light will stop glowing
and the unit will automatically shut off.
NOTE: If the desired cooking time is
less than 15 minutes, first turn the
Timer past 15 minutes and then turn to
desired cooking time.
The Cover can be turned over with the
top facing downward and used as a
trivet/base for resting the Steaming
Bowl. (Figure B) When cooking has
been completed, unplug cord.
Promptly remove Steaming Bowl from
Base and place on inverted Cover.

Base
Using potholders, carefully lift the Rice
Bowl by its handles.
NOTE: The Rice Bowl can also be used
for cooking vegetables with sauces,
poaching chicken or fish in liquids,
reheating foods like casseroles or
foods with sauces.
BOWL DIVIDER FEATURE
The Bowl Divider allows you the option
of steaming 2 foods at once and
keeping them totally separate. The
Bowl Divider can be opened to cover
half the Steaming Bowl (for cooking 2 to
3 servings) (Figure D) or reduced to
cover only a fourth of the Bowl (for 1 or
2 servings).
Figure D
6
Few foods steam in the same amount of
time so it will be necessary to plan the
steaming time for each food. You can
add a second food after the first one
has steamed for a while; you can also
remove the Bowl Divider before food in
the Steaming Bowl is done. Here are
some basic guidelines for using the
Bowl Divider feature.
GUIDELINES:
Always place the Bowl Divider in the Steaming Bowl prior
to the start of steaming (even if empty and food is to be
added later.)
If steaming foods with different water levels, always use the
higher water level of the 2 foods. Refer to Steaming Guide for
water levels to use for each food.
Prepare foods as recommended in the Steaming Guide, but
generally quantities should be reduced to:
3 cups or less in Steaming Bowl
2 cups or less in Bowl Divider - largest position
1 1/4 cups or less in Bowl Divider - smallest position
Position larger amount of food in the Steaming Bowl. Reserve
smaller food amount for Bowl Divider.
Foods can be started at the same time, or 1 food started in the
Steaming Bowl, or Bowl Divider, and the second one added 5
or 10 minutes later.
Stir vegetables every 10-15 minutes; after 7-8 minutes for
vegetables that cook in 15 minutes or less. This promotes
more even cooking.
Check doneness of vegetables often. Generally they will take
a little longer than when the Bowl Divider is not used, but
not always. Time will depend upon the amount and size of the
food pieces.
7
If food in the Bowl Divider is done first, remove Bowl Divider using potholder to grip hot handle - and continue cooking
other food.

CLEANING
Bowls, Cover and Drip Tray: Immerse in HOT, SUDSY WATER.
Rinse thoroughly. Dry all parts.
May be washed in a dishwasher.
Water Reservoir: (Interior of Base) Pour HOT, SUDSY WATER
into Water Reservoir. Use a non-abrasive plastic brush or
mesh scouring pad to clean the interior. Do not use abrasive
scouring pads or abrasive cleaners to clean any part of the
Steamer.
Thoroughly rinse with clean, hot water to remove all traces of
detergent.
Special Care For Heater Element: After a period of use, the
Heater surface may become coated from mineral deposits left
by water. Severe build-up should be treated by heating
vinegar in the Water Reservoir. Do not use household bleach.
When cleaning, follow this procedure:
Do not cover Base with any Steamer parts while cleaning.
Pour vinegar (1 quart) into the Base to the “Hi” fill line.
Plug unit into electrical outlet and turn Timer ON for
approximately 20 minutes.
Do not allow solution to boil over or spill onto exterior
surfaces.
9
When bell sounds and Cooking Light stops glowing, unplug
cord from outlet. Pour out vinegar solution and using a nonabrasive plastic brush, scrub the Heater Element.
Rinse only interior surfaces with fresh water.
Exterior of Base: Wipe Base and cord with a damp cloth,
then dry thoroughly. Never immerse Base in liquid or place
in dishwasher.
To maintain appearance of the exterior, avoid the use of
abrasive pads, brushes or cleansers.
STEAMING
GUIDE
NOTE: Steaming times will vary depending on desired
doneness and quantity used. The cooking times in the
Steaming Guide are suggested times. You may want to
lengthen/shorten cooking times to suit your taste. The times
suggested in the Steaming Guide are total cooking times,
starting when the Timer is turned ON.
While the majority of foods cook in much less than 75 minutes,
longer cooking times may require adding additional water to
the Water Reservoir. Remember to reset the Timer. Also, when
using the ”Lo” fill line and if the unit shuts off just short of your
desired doneness, just add 1/2 cup water and reset the Timer.
Watch food to avoid overcooking.
CAUTION: To avoid steam burns and when checking foods
while cooking, use long handled utensils/tongs. Always use
potholders to remove Cover. When removing the Cover, be
careful to lift Cover slowly.
When a Foil Cover is Used Over
the Rice Bowl
Some foods that are steamed in the
Rice Bowl need an aluminum foil cover
to prevent excess moisture from getting
into the food.
Foods that need a foil cover are
specified in the Steaming Guide.
10
To cover Rice Bowl, use about a 7”
width of foil. Place the length over
Bowl and across the handles; press
length down and against outside of
handles. Extend width of foil just
beyond opposite sides of Bowl; leave
a little space between foil and edge of
Bowl. (Figure E)
To move Bowl, grip top of foil-covered
handles and carefully lift Rice Bowl.
Figure E
NOTE: The water levels in the Base of the Steamer are as follows:
Lo level = 1 1/2 cups or 12 ounces
Medium level = 2 1/2 cups or 20 ounces
High level = 4 cups or 32 ounces
FRESH VEGETABLES
Weight, as specified for some vegetables in the Guide, is the purchased weight of
the food before it is trimmed, peeled, or cleaned.
Freshness, size/uniformity, and quantity will affect steaming time and quality of results.
Use crisp, firm vegetables.
Select uniform foods or cut pieces as evenly as possible.
Use amounts as recommended in the Steaming Guide.
Stirring is recommended when steaming some foods. Use a long handled spoon to stir.
Steam foods until just crisp, tender for best flavor and food value.
Season vegetables after steaming.

FROZEN VEGETABLES
Times given are for the contents of one or two boxes or bag of the size specified for
the frozen vegetable. Foods listed are not packaged in butter or a sauce; most are
placed directly into the Steaming Bowl. Do not thaw before steaming.
Frozen vegetables may be very icy; some are a solid block when removed from the
package. When possible, break-up/separate frozen pieces before adding them to
Steaming Bowl. These foods should be separated/stirred after 10 - 12 mins., or at
the time suggested in the Steaming Guide.
Use a long handled fork or spoon to separate or stir foods.
Mashed, frozen vegetables, like winter squash, are placed in the Rice Bowl, then
the Steaming Bowl and should be covered with a piece of aluminum foil during
steaming. See instructions for using a foil cover.
Season vegetables after steaming.

SEAFOOD AND FISH
Steaming times provided are for fresh, or frozen and thawed, seafood and fish.
Clean and prepare fresh seafood and fish, as appropriate, before steaming.
Most seafood and fish cook quickly. Steam in small quantities, or in amounts as
specified.
Clams tend to open at different times during steaming. To avoid overcooking, watch
the shells. Tap the exterior of Cover to improve visibility as steam forms on inside of
Steaming Bowl. Use tongs to remove shells when opened; be careful as the steam
is hot. Replace Cover after opened shells are removed.
Serve steamed seafood or fish with plain or seasoned butter or margarine, fresh
lemon, and/or favorite sauces.
Fish fillets may be steamed in the Rice Bowl. See the procedure provided for
poached fillets. Experiment with your favorite fish fillets and/or seasonings by
following the proportions and procedures given in the recipe. Adjust steaming
times, as necessary.

RICE
There are many different kinds of rice. The more common ones, listed in the
Steaming Guide, vary in the amount of water that is combined with rice in the Rice
Bowl, and in the cooking time. Follow amounts of water and rice in Steaming Guide
(not on the package) for each kind of rice. Wild rice, other than in a package mix
with whole rice, does not cook effectively using steam.
Accurately measure the rice and water that are combined in the Rice Bowl.
Measure water using a liquid measuring cup. Level rice in a dry measuring cup.
(Fig. F) Stir rice and water. Place Rice Bowl into Steaming Bowl for steaming.
Consistency of rice can be varied, if desired.
For drier/firmer rice, decrease specified
amount of water that is combined with the
rice by 1 - 2 tablespoons. For softer rice,
increase water mixed with rice by the same
amount.
Liquid
Dry
Figure F
Check doneness and consistency of rice at
minimum time specified for each type; stir rice at this time.
After checking/stirring rice, shake Cover before replacing it on Steaming Bowl. This
will prevent water in Cover from dripping into Rice Bowl which would reduce the
quality and flavor of the steamed rice.
Season rice after steaming. Add salt, pepper, butter or margarine. Toss with
sauteed chopped onions or mushrooms; with toasted nuts or chopped parsley.
19
For flavored rice, substitute the specified amount of water that is combined with
rice in the Rice Bowl with beef or chicken broth, consomme or bouillon.
For a tasty change from plain rice, refer to recipe for Parmesan Rice with Spinach.
At completion of steaming, carefully remove Rice Bowl from Steaming Bowl;
handles will be hot and wet. If transferring rice to another serving bowl,
wipe moisture from outside of Rice Bowl to prevent water from dripping into
serving bowl.

1/4 cup chopped walnuts
3 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1 1/2 cups light cream
1 cup sweet apple cider
