With this appliance, it is possible to cook rice as
well as to steam other foods at the same time. Experiment with finding the right quantity of water and
the right cooking time for the various combinations.

sets of measurement markings to make filling easier:
1/4 =
approx. 45 ml
1/2 =
approx. 90 ml

Cooking Rice
Notice
Coat the inside of the cooking bowl 4 evenly with
a little grease or vegetable oil to achieve a better
cooking result.
1. Remove the lid 2.
2. Take the cooking bowl 4 out.
3. Measure the desired quantity of rice using the
supplied measuring cup.
As a general rule: A level measuring cup - filled
with rice - yeilds a portion for one person. Determine the right quantity of rice and water for you
in a few cooking attempts.
4. Thoroughly wash and sieve the loose rice. Nutrients will be lost with this, however, if you do not
wash the rice this could lead to poor cooking results and elevated foam and steam formation in
the cooking bowl 4. Also, always pay heed to
the preparation instructions of the rice producer.
5. After washing it, pour the rice into the cooking
bowl 4 and smooth it out.

Subject to taste preferences, salt can also be

the steam exit opening 1. NEVER hold your hands
or other parts of the body over the steam exit opening 1 during the cooking process. There is a risk
of receiving severe scalds!
11. Press the function selector switch 7 down. The

Notice
Notice
If the cooking bowl 4 is not correctly positioned,

the setting “Cooking”.
If you use warm water the cooking time can be
shortened. In this case, use somewhat less water
than is given on the cup marking in the cooking
bowl 4.
As soon as the rice is cooked, the rice cooker switches
itself automatically back to the keep-warm setting.
The red control lamp
6 extinguishes and the
yellow control lamp
5 starts to glow. Stir the
rice once and then leave it – with the lid 2 closed
– in the cooking bowl 4 for 10 minutes.
Notice
Subject to the type/sort of rice being prepared, it
could be that you may have to insert a little more or
less water to achieve an optimal cooking result.
Vary the amount of water in accordance with your
individual experiences and personal preference.
7.
12. Remove the lid 2 and stir the rice with the supplied plastic spoon to loosen it up. The rice is now
ready to eat.
When the cooking bowl 4 is full, place it back
in the rice cooker housing. To avoid dirtying the
cooking area, ensure that there is no moisture
or rice located on the outside of the cooking
bowl 4. If necessary, wipe the outside with
a clean cloth.
Important
Use only the supplied plastic spoon for stirring or
serving the rice. Other spoons may cause damage
to the anti-stick coating.
Notice

process cannot be started with an empty cooking
bowl 4.

If the rice should be kept warm for a longer period,
wait until shortly before eating before stirring the rice.
An earlier loosening would cause heat to be lost unnecessarily. Do not remove the lid 2 while the rice is
being kept warm and do not leave the rice in the appliance for longer than 2 hours.

Important
Always remove the plug from the mains power sokket when the rice cooker is not in use. Otherwise,
there is a permanent risk of receiving an electric
shock!
Steaming
IMPORTANT:
Do not lift the steaming attachment 3 up during the
steaming process - the escaping steam brings with it
the real risk of scalding. The steaming attachment 3
becomes hot during the steaming process. When
taking hold of the steaming attachment 3, use oven
cloths or something similar to lift it from the cooking
bowl 4.
1. Pour the required amount of water into the cooking
bowl 4. The cooking time is dependant on the
inserted volume of water. Take note of the examples
given in the following table.
• 1 filled measuring cup is sufficient for about
15 minutes of steaming.
• 2 filled measuring cups are sufficient for about
30 minutes of steaming, etc.
