The Hatco STM-4G Electric Steamer is specially
designed for cooking, reheating, defrosting, and
bottling foods with steam. Inside the sealed cabinet
of the Electric Steamer, steam is allowed to
penetrate foods from all sides, heating foods evenly
and thoroughly. Steam prevents foods from drying
out so food remains moist and juices are not lost.
Cooking with steam brings out the distinct flavor of
the food retaining the food’s true taste. The Electric
Steamer is a healthier cooking alternative to
conventional methods.
Hatco Electric Steamer units are a product of
extensive research and field testing. The materials
used were selected for maximum durability,
attractive appearance and optimum performance.
Every unit is thoroughly inspected and tested prior
to shipment.

MODEL DESCRIPTION
STM-4G MODEL
Hatco's Electric Steamer produces steam in an
enclosed cabinet for cooking, reheating, defrosting,
or bottling of food products. When the oven door is
closed a seal is formed. The sealed oven cabinet
captures the steam and monitors the cabinet
temperature with an internal thermostat. To avoid
pressure buildup, steam is allowed to exit from the
front upper vents inside the cabinet. Inside the main
cabinet housing are side runners that support
cooking pans or racks, and are easily removed for
cleaning purposes. An independent cavity holds a
removable 1 liter (.3 gal.) water tank, essential for
the steam process. The steam oven has a outer drip
tray to collect condensation that may accumulate on
the door during operation.

Tips on Steaming and Cooking Foods
• Grease suitable containers before using them to
cook fish or egg dishes.
• Dried foods like pasta or rice must be cooked in
liquid.
• Foods cooked with steam retain their true
flavors; therefore foods should not be seasoned
until after being cooked.

Tips on Defrosting Foods
• The perforated pan is recommended for use in
the defrosting process, especially for all meats.
The condensation pan must be used underneath
the perforated pan to catch the thawing liquids
from the meats above. Defrosted liquids should
be discarded immediately and the container
washed before next use.
• Do not refreeze food once it has been thawed.
• Halfway through the defrosting time it is
recommended to turn, stir, or separate clumps of
food.
• Allow food to stand at room temperature at the
end of the defrosting time. This standing time is
necessary to ensure that the food is fully
defrosted right through to the core.
• All meat and poultry should be fully defrosted
before cooking.
• Defrost deep frozen pre-cooked meals according
to the manufacturer's instructions.
• Fish does not need to be fully defrosted before
cooking. Defrost so that the surface of the fish is
sufficiently thawed to take seasoning.
• Ensure clumps of frozen foods are broken up first
so that they cook evenly.
• Remove any packaging from frozen foods before
defrosting.

3. Insert the dish with the second longest cooking
time when the timer display is close to the
cooking duration of that food. Repeat for the next
dish.
At the end of the longest cooking duration all foods
will be complete and ready to serve.
BLANCHING
* This temperature is not the same as the recommended
temperature.
The steam oven is a convenient way to blanch
vegetables and fruit to prepare them for freezing.
** The times in this table are for 1.0 liter (34 oz.) jars. If using
.5 liter (17 oz.) jars, reduce the time by about 15 minutes. If
using .25 liter (8.5 oz.) jars, reduce the time by about 20
minutes.
1. Place the prepared vegetables or fruit into a
perforated cooking container.
NOTE: The above data is only for reference.
2. Set a duration of 1 minute and confirm the
selection.
Tips on Bottling or Canning Foods
• Place the condensation pan on the lowest level
inside the steam oven, and the metal rack on the
next level above the tray.
3. After blanching duration is complete. Remove
and plunge the food product into cold water to
ensure rapid cooling.
• Place a maximum of four prepared jars (all the
same size) on the rack, ensuring that they do not
touch one another. This allows steam to
surround the jars on all sides.
4. Drain the food product thoroughly and prepare to
freeze.
DISINFECTING
Steam is an excellent source for disinfecting cooking
containers and utensils.
• Make use of residual heat by leaving the jars in
the steam oven 30 minutes after it has switched
off.
NOTE: Ensure the product to be disinfected is
declared by the manufacturer to be heat resistant up
to 100°C (212°F) before continuing.
• Cover the jar or jars with a cloth and allow to cool
for approximately 24 hours.
1. Place the condensation tray on the lowest side
runner of the steam oven. Insert the metal rack
on the next level above the condensation tray.
MEAL PLANNING TIPS
It is very economical and practical to cook a whole
meal at the same time in the Electric Steamer.
Cooking durations will vary according to the type of
foods.
2. Dismantle, clean and thoroughly rinse the items
to be disinfected. Place the items on the metal
rack ensuring that they do not touch each other.
This will allow the hot steam to encompass the
items from all sides.
1. Ensure all food pans will fit inside the steam oven
together before proceeding with the steaming
process.
3. Set the timer display to 30 minutes and confirm
the selection.
WARNING
Hot steam will escape from cabinet when door is
opened and injury may occur if user comes in
contact with steam or inside of steam oven
cabinet wall.
Form No. STMSM-1007
4. Remove items from the steam oven and dry with
a fresh clean towel. If assembly is required all
components must be completely dry before
reassembling, to keep them germ free.

MAINTENANCE
NOTICE
Ensure the water tank is empty after each days
use to prevent sediment build up in the
appliance.
GENERAL
The Hatco Electric Steamer ovens are designed for
maximum durability and performance, with minimum
maintenance.
NOTICE
Use only vinegar or citric acid based descaling
agents or descaling tablets to descale the
appliance.
CLEANING
Hatco recommends cleaning the Electric Steamer
after each days use. Allow the steam oven to cool
down to a safe temperature before cleaning.
Oven Interior
Removing the side runners from the inside of the
oven cavity will make cleaning the oven interior
easier.
NOTE: Do not close the door after cleaning until the
inside oven cavity is completely dry.
NOTE: Unplugging the appliance from the power
outlet will erase all menu programs and require
reprogramming of the unit.
1. Pull the side runner toward the steam oven
opening, and remove the side runner from the
oven wall. (See Figure 6.)
WARNING
To ensure safe and proper operation additional
cleaning may be required depending upon
products being thawed and local codes applying
to sink thawing techniques.
2. With a mild solution of household dish soap and
water, use a non abrasive sponge or cloth to
wipe the interior clean. Use the same solution to
wipe the side runners, roof seal, drip channel,
inside of the door, and the independent water
cavity. (Side runners may be cleaned in a
dishwasher if available.)
WARNING
This appliance is not jet-proof construction. To
assure safe and proper operation do not use jetclean-spray to clean this appliance.
NOTE: If steam oven interior is discolored from bad
water quality, use a proprietary wet cloth and a citric
acid based descaling agent to remove stains.
NOTICE
Do not use a steam cleaner to clean the outside
of this appliance. Pressurized steam could
cause permanent damage to the surface and
penetrate the electrical components causing the
appliance to short circuit.
NOTE: The water drain floating disc and cover will
require use of a periodic cleaning agent to remove
water deposits.
3. Wipe the oven interior with clean water and
thoroughly dry. Ensure no cleaning product
residue is remaining on the steam oven.
NOTICE
Do not use harsh chemicals such as bleach or
cleaners containing bleach. Also avoid the use
of scouring pads, hard brushes, or steel wool as
they may damage the surface of the appliance.
NOTE: The door seal can become porous and
cracked over time. If this happens the door
assembly will need to be replaced.
NOTICE
Cleaning and sanitizing is recommended at the
end of each days use.
4. Install the left and right side runners. Make sure
the rear tip of each runner engages the mounting
holes in the back of the cabinet, then slide the
mounting tabs over the locating pins and push
down to secure. (See Figure 6.)
NOTICE
Use only non-abrasive cleaners with nonabrasive sponges or cloths. Abrasive cleaners
could scratch the finish of your unit marring its
appearance and making it susceptible to soil
accumulation.
NOTICE
Do not use cleaning products containing
aliphatic compounds as these could cause the
seals to swell.
