Before the first use
Setting the altitude
Relocating
This process rinses the water lines and
sets the unit to the water boiling
temperature which varies depending on
the altitude in your area.
When relocating to a new area, reset
the unit’s water boiling temperature by
descaling the appliance. See "Cleaning
and Care" for more information.
^ Open the door by pushing on the left
side of the door release.
Setting the altitude for the first time and
after relocation will produce more
steam than usual. This is not a fault.
The door opens.
^ Take the steam generator from the
appliance and take the insert out, see
"Cleaning and Care".
^ Rinse the steam generator and insert
with hot water. Do not use soap.
Do not wash the steam generator or
the insert in a dishwasher!
Do not submerge the steam
generator in water!
^ Start the cooking program "Cook
Universal" 212°F (100°C) and run for
15 minutes. Proceed as described in
"Using the steam oven".
15
Suitable containers
Stainless steel cooking containers are
supplied with the appliance.
Other containers are available in a
variety of sizes, perforated or solid, as
optional accessories.
Please note when selecting
cookware:
– Use the perforated cooking
containers whenever possible,
e.g. for cooking vegetables. The
steam can reach the food from all
sides and cook evenly.
– For thicker items, e.g. potatoes, build
larger spaces between them. It is
best to space food as much as
possible so steam can surround
each piece. Larger and deeper
containers can be used for larger
items.
– Dense dishes such as casseroles or
food such as peas or asparagus
which have little space between
them will take longer to cook
because the steam has less space to
work in. The cooking time will be
longer the more of this kind of food is
filled in the container. It is best to use
2 or 3 shallow containers for these
foods. The recommended cooking
times are for shallow containers. For
larger fill heights the cooking time is
extended.
16
– When cooking with several
containers at a time, use only one
large container for best results.
– The capacity of the steam oven is for
about 6 - 8 portions. Do not cook
more portions at a time.
– See "Cooking tips" for more
information.
You can also use your own containers
and dishes. However, please note the
following:
– The container must be heat resistant
to 212°F (100°C). Heat resistant
glass, ceramics, porcelain
(chinaware), plastics, stainless steel
or enamel dishes are all suitable.
– Food will take longer to cook in a
dish with thick sides.
– Place the dish on the supplied rack.
– Ensure that there is a gap of at least
1" (3 cm) between the upper rim of
the container and the top of the
cooking compartment to allow
sufficient steam to enter the
container.
Using the steam oven
Before each use
^ Insert the drip tray in the lower level
when using a perforated container.
^ Fill the water tank.
The insert can remain inside.
Only use tap water, do not use
distilled or mineral water!
The water level must be between the
min. 0.75 l, and max. 1.2 l marks. The
marks are on the outside and inside of
the steam generator.
Do not exceed the "max" level marker.
To shorten the heating phase, use hot
water. Use caution when handling the
water tank.
^ Push the steam generator into the
machine until it engages.
If the water tank is not properly
engaged, the oven will not heat and the
display will show F20. See "Frequently
asked questions".

Cooking tips
Tips for steaming
– The duration for cooking with steam
is almost the same as cooking in a
pot.
– The steam prevents the food from
drying out and the disadvantages
coming with it. The food stays moist
and juicy. The same is true not only
for vegetables but also for desserts,
fish and meat recipes.
– Food like noodles or rice need to be
cooked in fluids. Noodles should be
well covered with fluid. Rice, beans
and cereals need to be cooked in
equal amounts of food and water.
– Follow the cooking time for pasta on
the packaging.
– The cooking liquid gets absorbed by
some food (e.g. rice). With other food
it can be used for gravy or sauces.
– You can cook on any level or on
multiple levels at the same time. The
duration will not change.
– You can prepare gravy in the steam
oven by adding flour and butter to
the liquid.
– The food will not brown and does not
get a crust. The food is gently
steamed, not fried or baked. Cheese
will melt but not brown. Steaming
food is healthy and accentuates its
flavor.
– Grease the perforated container
when cooking fish. Grease the solid
container when cooking eggs,
e.g. scrambled eggs.
– When cooking frozen food,
e.g. vegetables, break up large
clumps so they cook evenly. The
duration is approximately the same
as for fresh vegetables.
– Frozen and fresh vegetables with the
same duration can be steamed
together.
– Since steaming retains flavor so well,
food should not be seasoned until
after it has been cooked.
– When cooking with liquids only fill the
containers 3/4 of the way.
30
– To avoid any transfer of tastes
caused by moisture dripping from
above, perforated containers should
be inserted in the lower runner and
the solid containers should be
placed on the rack on an upper
level.
– Yeast dough can be proofed in the
steam oven. Select the "Cook
Universal" function and lower the
default temperature to 105°F (40°C).
Cover the dough.

Cooking tips
When defrosting frozen foods in the
steam oven, the defrosting time is much
shorter than defrosting at room
temperature.
^ Insert the food in a container or on
the rack.
^ Select the function "Defrosting" and
confirm.
^ If desired adjust the default
temperature (see table) and confirm.
^ Select the defrosting time (see table)
and confirm.
Tips for defrosting
,Do not cook with defrosting
liquids.
– When defrosting poultry, set the food
on the rack and insert the drip tray
beneath it. This way the food will not
lay in its defrosting liquid.
– Food which will not release
defrosting liquid can be placed on
the rack or in a container.
– Fish does not need to be fully
defrosted before cooking. Defrost it
so that the surface is sufficiently
thawed to take herbs and seasoning.
Fish coated with breadcrumbs
should be fully defrosted so that the
coating sticks.
– Turn, stir or separate food about
halfway through the defrosting
process.
– Allow food to stand at room
temperature after defrosting. This
compensation time (see table) is
necessary to ensure that the food is
fully defrosted.
– Do not refreeze food once it has
been defrosted.
– Defrost deep frozen, precooked
meals according to the
manufacturer’s instructions.
– Defrost baked items such as pastry
or cakes in a closed freezer bag.
33
Meal planning
With some planning, an entire meal can
be cooked in the steam oven.
^ Insert the food with the longest
cooking time (rice) first.
^ Place cooking containers on different
levels or side by side on the rack.
^ Set the difference in time until
inserting the next food, here
14 minutes, and confirm.
Since different foods cook differently,
they must be inserted at different times.
Example:
Rice
20 minutes
Fish
6 minutes
Broccoli 4 minutes
^ Once the 14 minutes are up, insert
the second food (fish) in the oven.
^ Set the difference in time until the
third food, here 2 minutes, and
confirm.
^ Once the 2 minutes are up, insert the
third food (broccoli) in the oven.
^ Set the difference in time until the
fourth food needs to be inserted or
the meal is complete, here 4 minutes,
and confirm.
^ At the end of the cooking duration
you can remove all the dishes at the
same time.
