7. Plug the steamer into the mains socket. Set your cooking time. When
steaming, the indicator will light up in red.
8. Check the water level by looking at the exterior water level indicator,
if below the Min mark, add water from the side of the juice collector
during cooking.
9. When steaming is complete, the indicator will turn to green. Remove
the baskets, using oven gloves to prevent burns.
10.Unplug the steamer from the mains socket and allow it to cool down
completely.
11.Empty the water basin and refill it with fresh water before each use.
Note: If the water level in the water tank is too low during operation
(below the Min mark), the boil-dry protection system will turn off the
steamer and a buzzer will sound. The steamer will return to Clock Mode.
Add water to the basin and ensure the water level is between the Max and
Min marks before resuming operation.
Using the Steam Baskets and Rice Bowl
Your steamer is equipped with three steam baskets and a rice bowl.
When using a single steam basket:
1. Place the food in steam basket no. 1.
2. Place the steam basket on the steamer base and put the lid on.
When using multiple steam baskets:
1. Place the food in the steam baskets. We recommend that you put
the largest pieces of food in the lowest steam basket, which should
always be the steam basket no. 1.
2. Stack the steam baskets on the steamer base and put the lid on.

24/8/15 12:26 pm
Operation Instructions
When using a single steam basket with rice bowl:
1. If you want to cook rice using the rice bowl, place 1 volume of rice
and 1.5 volume of water in the rice bowl (maximum 220g rice and
330ml water).
2. Place the rice bowl in steam basket no. 1.
3. Place the steam basket on the steamer base and put the lid on.
Note:
•• You can put different foods in the baskets, but since steam will drip
from the upper basket, make sure their flavours complement each
other. When steaming meat and vegetables, always place the meat in
the lowest basket so that juice cannot drip onto the other food.
•• If you are cooking food with different cooking times, place the food
that requires the longest cooking time in the lowest basket and start
cooking it first. When the timer reaches the setting for the next basket
of food, remove the lid using oven gloves or a cloth, and add the
basket to the stack on the steamer base. Replace the lid.

Hints and Tips
Steaming Time
• Steaming times stated in the charts and recipes are intended as a
guide. If you have followed the instructions and the food is still not
sufficiently cooked, simply steam for a little longer until satisfied.
• The steaming times are all based on food cooked in the lower basket,
unless specifically stated otherwise. Food cooked in the upper basket
may take slightly longer to cook.
• All times stated in the charts and recipes are based on the use of cold
water.
• For foods with long cooking time, reset the timer and top up with more
water. When refilling, always switch off the steamer first and empty the
juice collector carefully as the liquid may be hot. Add sufficient warm
water (but not boiling water) for the remaining time.
Steaming Vegetables
• Cut off thick stems from cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage.
• Steam leafy green vegetables for the shortest possible time as they
loose colour easily.
• Salt and season vegetables after steaming for best results.
• Frozen vegetables should not be thawed before steaming.

Steaming Meat and Poultry
• Steaming has the advantage of allowing all the fat to drip away during
cooking. Due to the gentle heat, only choose tender lean cuts of meat
and trim off all fat. Meat suitable for grilling is ideal for steaming.
• Marinade meat and poultry with flavoursome sauces before steaming.
• Thoroughly cook all food before serving. Pierce with a knife or skewer
to check that the centre is cooked and the juices run clear.
• Sausages must be completely cooked before steaming.
• Use fresh herbs while steaming to add flavour.

Care and Maintenance
Cleaning Your Steamer
• Never immerse the steamer base, mains cable or mains plug in water.
• Unplug at the mains socket and leave the steamer to cool completely
for a minimum of 30 minutes before cleaning.
• Do not clean any part of the steamer with abrasive cleaners, e.g.
scouring powders, scouring pads, wire wool, washing soda or bleach.
• Do not clean clear plastic bowls with the abrasive pad of a cleaning
sponge.
• We recommend washing the lid, rice bowl and juice collector in hot
water and washing liquid. Rinse and dry thoroughly.
• Empty the water basin and change the water after each use.
• Do not immerse the steamer base in water. Clean the water basin with
warm, soapy water and wipe with a cloth. Rinse thoroughly.
• Wipe the steamer base with a damp cloth.

Care and Maintenance
Descaling the Water Basin
After about 2-3 months’ use, some chemical deposits may build up in the
water basin or on the heating element, depending on the hardness of the
water. It is essential to descale the water basin regularly.
1. Fill the water basin to the Max mark with a mixture of white vinegar
and water. Do not use any other chemical or detergent.
2. Plug the steamer into the mains socket. The steam baskets, lid, juice
collector and rice bowl are not to be used during this operation.
3. Set timer for approximately 20-25 minutes and start steaming. If the
vinegar mixture boils over, switch off the steamer and unplug from
the mains socket.
4. When steaming has finished, unplug the steamer from the mains
socket and allow it to cool down before pouring the vinegar mixture
out.
5. Rinse the water basin several times.
