until the READY light comes on (about 15-20
minutes).
WARNING
WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR, STAY AWAY
FROM THE STEAM COMING OUT OF THE UNIT.
THE STEAM CAN CAUSE BURNS.
2. Load food into pans in uniform layers. Pans
should be filled to about the same levels, and
should not be mounded.
6. To shut off the unit press the ON/OFF rocker
switch to OFF, (FL_) will appear in the timer
display. The steam generating reservoir will
begin draining, displaying (Fi_) and (Fi_) as it
drains, and refill to the high float twice and
finally drain completely and turn off the unit.
3. Open the door and slide the pans into the
supports. If you will only be steaming one pan,
put it in the middle position. Some foods will
cause foam. When cooking foods that foam,
such as shrimp, put an empty solid 2½” deep
pan in the bottom slot of the pan racks.
NOTE: When filling or draining the steam
generating reservoir (_) will be displayed
indicating the water level in the reservoir.
(_) reservoir is empty, (_) low float is satisfied,
(_) high float is satisfied.
4. Close the door. When the READY indicator is
lit take one of the following steps:
If you want to steam the food for a certain
length of time push the TIMED button and
set the desired time with the TIMER knob.
The timer will automatically run the steamer
for the set time and then STOP. A beeper
will sound. Push CANCEL to stop beeping.
NOTE: If a large amount of shrimp is cooked
in the SmartSteam100 foaming will occur
because the steam lid actually gets so hot
that the shrimp will cook on its surface and
the shrimp proteins in the dripping will foam
on the surface of the steam lid.
If you want to steam continuously push the
MANUAL button. The unit will continue
steaming until stopped.
* To avoid this use a catch pan to catch shrimp
drippings and proteins to prevent foaming
when cooking a large amount of shrimp.
