followed, including the following:
1. Read all instructions.
2. Do not touch hot surfaces. Use handles or knobs.
3. To protect against fire, electric shock and injury to persons do not immerse
cord, plugs or base in water or other liquid.
4. Close supervision is necessary when any appliance is used by or near
children.
5. Unplug from outlet when not in use and before cleaning. Allow to cool before
putting on or taking off parts, and before cleaning the appliance.
6. Do not operate any appliance with a damaged cord or plug or after the
appliance malfunctions, or has been damaged in any manner. Return
appliance to the nearest authorised service facility for examination, repair or
adjustment.
7. Never fill the water tank above the “MAX.” mark, as the water may boil over.
8. Never immerse the base in water or put it in the dishwasher. Clean it with a
soft cloth.
9. Always unplug your appliance when it is not in use and before filling the
water tank.

1) The marked electrical rating of the detachable power-supply cord or
extension cord should be at least as great as the electrical rating of the
appliance.
2) The cord should be arranged so that it will not drape over the counter top
or table top where it can be pulled on by children or tripped over.
Unintentionally.
If the appliance is of the grounded type, the extension cord should be a

THE BENEFITS OF STEAM COOKING
GENTLE STEAMING FOR HEALTHIER, TASTIER FOOD
• You can use your Magimix steamer to cook most types of food. Magimix has chosen the
pressureless steaming method because it really takes care of your food. Instead of
watering down the flavour, gentle steaming brings it out! You will rediscover the true taste of
different foods – medium rare meat will be moist and tender, fish and shellfish will keep their
soft, delicate texture and your vegetables will never be soggy again. To enjoy all these
advantages to the full, make sure you choose only the very freshest organic produce.
• Steam cooking is good for your health as well as your tastebuds. By using this gentle,
pressureless method, you ensure that your food retains all its nutritional value as well as its
full flavour.

!
Remove the base from the
upper basket before
putting the food in.
Double capacity: you
can cook several
different dishes at
the same time.
Check that the removable
base is fitted properly.
For optimum results, avoid overloading the baskets. Take care not to block the holes, as
this will prevent the steam from circulating.
Always discard the water in the tank after use.
As this appliance generates a great deal of steam, always use it out of the reach of
children and away from any objects or items of furniture that might be damaged by it.
You may be scalded if the steam comes into contact with your skin. We therefore advise
you to keep a safe distance away from the cooking steam. If you need to handle the lid
while the steamer is on, make sure you lift it away from you, to avoid the risk of being
scalded, and wear oven gloves.
As the baskets are made from stainless steel, we recommend that you always wear oven
gloves when handling them.
RICE AND EGGS COOKING

the light will flash.
Cooking at this lower temperature makes cooking times slightly longer. To accelerate the
process, you can select the 100°C
temperature setting and reduce the cooking time.
As certain types of fish requires extremely careful cooking, we advise against using the
“keep warm” function, to avoid the risk of overcooking.
If you are steaming fish, we recommend that you use no more than a litre of water, as
certain types of fish cause the water to foam.

COOKING ADVICE
Do not overload the steamer baskets as this will prevent the steam from circulating freely.
Steam cooking is simplicity itself, but it requires produce of the utmost freshness and quality to
ensure optimum flavour.
To test if the food is properly cooked, pierce the thickest part with a knife. If it is cooked, the blade
will not meet any resistance.
Vegetables:
Scrape the vegetables instead of peeling them, so that they retain all their vitamins.
In the case of non-organic vegetables, we advise against re-using the cooking
water, as the pesticides will have dripped into it.
Cooking times depend on the nature, thickness and freshness of the vegetables. An early variety of
carrot, for example, will take less time to cook than a maincrop one of the same diameter.
Fish:
Leave the scales on whole fish so that they retain all their firmness. A slice of lemon or a pinch of
spices placed inside the cavity of a fish or on top of fillets will bring out the full flavour. If you have
to use frozen fish, increase the cooking time by 40% or 50%. There is no point defrosting the fish
beforehand.
You can lay the fish either directly in the basket, on a sheet of baking parchment, or a bed of
seaweed, bay leaves, fennel or any other herb of your choice, but make sure you leave gaps at
the bottom of the basket for the steam to circulate.
Meat:
Steamed meat is both tender and tasty. It can, however, look rather pale and dull,
which is why we recommend browning your meat over a high heat for 5 min in a large
casserole dish or frying pan before steaming it. That way, you will reap all the benefits
of steaming without losing the appetising golden brown exterior.
To keep a joint of meat or a leg of lamb rare while waiting for your guests to sit down at the table,
wrap it in kitchen foil and place it in one of the baskets. Leave the lid slightly ajar and turn the dial
to the “keep warm” position. Your meat will stay hot and pink!
Seasoning:
Remember that foods lose some of their salt during steaming. So if you like the taste of salt, you
will have to add a little after cooking. You can lightly season food before steaming it. You can also
give it extra taste by flavouring the water with herbs or a court bouillon.
Desserts:
Your Magimix steamer is perfect for making flans, creams and sponges. You can cook
them in individual ramekins, which will halve their normal cooking time. You can adapt
any dessert recipes involving a bain-marie to steam cooking. For instance, the
multi-function bowl is ideal for preparing chocolate fondues.

COOKING ADVICE
Yoghurt (automatic model only):
Making homemade yoghurt is extremely easy. All you need is the starter (use a pot
of shop-bought yoghurt the first time) and a litre of milk. Combine the yoghurt with
the milk and pour into pots. Switch your machine on and leave it on for 8-12 hours.
When the yoghurts have cooled, refrigerate them for 3 hours. They can be stored in the refrigerator
for 5-7 days.
Tips for making perfect yoghurt:
• The base:
When you make yoghurt for the first time, you will need to use shop-bought yoghurt as the
base. A plain full-fat yoghurt is perfect. From then on, you will simply need to “recycle” one of
your own pots of homemade yoghurt, although after 5 or 6 times, you will need to buy another
pot of yoghurt, as the lactic culture quickly loses its effectiveness.
You can also use a commercial yoghurt base, in which case follow the manufacturer’s
instructions.
• The milk:
You can use cow’s milk, soya milk, goat’s or ewe’s milk.
The fat content is an important factor to the consistency and flavour of your yoghurts. We
recommend using whole UHT milk, which will yield firmer and creamier yoghurt. Goat’s milk
yoghurt is quite runny.
We recommend using organic, pesticide-free milk.
Vegetable milk (e.g. almond, rice) and skimmed milk do not ferment, so the yoghurt would never
set. If you are using fresh milk, we advise boiling it beforehand. Try to use milk that is already
at room temperature.
• Fruit yoghurt:
Remember to cook your fruit (or vegetables) beforehand, otherwise its acidity will hinder the
fermentation process.

time or cut into smaller pieces.
Some of the food is not cooked
• The basket may be too full. Avoid
overloading it.

boiled dry.
• Fill the water tank.
Your yoghurt will not set
(electronic model only)
• Check your the
setting
• Use whole milk
• Follow the quantities (1 litre + 1 yoghurt
for 9 pots)

homemade yoghurt, try shop-bought
yoghurt instead
• Do not move the steamer during the
cooking time
• Increase the cooking time
