An Introduction to Steam Cooking
Congratulations on the purchase of your
new Sunbeam VitaSteam Food Steamer. You
will now be able to enjoy the benefits and
convenience of steam cooking.
Steaming is one of the healthiest cooking
methods available, as it requires no fats
or oils. Steaming ensures that fruit and
vegetables retain vitamins and minerals
required for a balanced diet. Meats such as
chicken can be gently steamed to retain their
flavour and tenderness, while the fats drain
away.
Steaming is also gentle, as the food never
comes in contact with the cooking liquid,
ensuring that it retains its shape, colour and
texture.
Using your VitaSteam
™
Before using your VitaSteam for the first
time, wash the steaming bowls, rice bowl,
lid and drip tray in warm soapy water. Rinse
and dry thoroughly. Operate the steamer for
15 minutes using a solution of 1 tablespoon
lemon juice and 2 cups water in the
reservoir.
Note: You may notice a slight odour during
this first operation. This is normal with many
heating appliances and will not affect the
performance of your steamer.
1.Fill the water reservoir above the ‘MIN’
water level and no higher than the ‘MAX’
water level.
Note: Use only clean water in your VitaSteam.
Do not use wine, stock or other liquids.
4
2.Put the Removable Drip Tray in place.
ote: Do not operate the Steamer without the
N
Removable Drip Tray.
3.Place food to be steamed without sauce or
liquid into the steaming bowls and place
on the Power Base. If steaming with sauce
or liquid, use the rice bowl and place
inside one of the steaming bowls.
4.Replace the lid.
5.Insert the plug into a 230-240V power
outlet and turn the power on.
6.Set the timer to the required minutes.
Using your VitaSteam (continued)
7.A bell will sound when the selected
time has elapsed and the steamer will
automatically switch off. Using oven mitts
or a cloth, remove the lid by tilting it away
from you to ensure steam is safely released
without scalding. Hold the lid over the
steamer to allow the condensation to drain
into the unit before removing completely.
Remove the plug from the power outlet
after use.
8.Remove the steamer tray/rice bowl and
serve the food.
Note: Use caution when handling the base of
the unit and steamer/rice bowl as these will
be hot.
For Best Results
The cooking times stated in this booklet are
a guide only. The steaming time required for
specific foods is affected by the following:
• The size, quality and the temperature of
the food.
• The degree to which you like your food
cooked.
• The temperature of the water used for
steaming.
To ensure good results using your VitaSteam,
follow these simple tips: –
• Remove food immediately after the
steaming cycle is completed. Food will
continue to cook slightly due to the
accumulated steam, if you leave it in the
steamer.
• Food should be arranged evenly in both
steamer bowls. Foods of uniform size will
steam at a similar rate.
5
Guide to Instant Steam Function
The VitaSteam features an Instant Steam
Function that will enable steam to be
generated in as little as 30 seconds. For this
feature to operate you must place the Instant
Steam Sleeve in position.
Instant
steam
valve
Cutout
The Sleeve concentrates a small amount of
water around the Exposed Heating Element,
quickly bringing it to boiling temperature to
produce steam, rather than heating all of the
water in the reservoir.
The Sleeve has a small cut out in the bottom
to allow water to flow into the contained
water area. When the Sleeve is in position
the cut out must be located at the bottom to
allow the water to flow in.
For more efficient steaming we recommend
that the appliance is always operated with
the Instant Steam Sleeve in position.
Guide to Water Levels
Your VitaSteam relies on the water reservoir
being full of water to operate. Fill the water
reservoir with clean water only. The water
level must be between the ‘MIN’ (500 ml)
and ‘MAX’ (1400ml) markings.
When continuously cooking food with your
steamer ensure that the water level does not
fall below the ‘MIN’ marking (500ml).

‘MAX’
‘MIN’
Guide to using the Steaming Trays
The VitaSteam comes with three steaming
trays – each 3 litres. The appliance can
operate with two or three trays stacked on top
of each other or with just one tray in position.
To enable the trays to stack properly, they
need to be used in number order, with tray
number one on the bottom.
Place the largest piece of food with the
longest cooking time in the lower steaming
bowl, then place on top of the Removable
Drip Tray and Power Base.
Then place the upper steaming tray
on top for cooking of vegetables.

Guide to using the Rice Bowl
Cooking of rice must be done in the Rice
Bowl. The Rice Bowl can either be placed in
any of the trays.
Note: When using mutiple trays place rice in
the bowl on the top steaming tray.
Both uncooked rice and water must be added
to the Rice Bowl. Check the recommended
quantities on Page 11.
When handling the Rice Bowl use insulated
pot holders/oven mitts to avoid burns from
the hot steam.

Care and Cleaning
Before cleaning your Sunbeam VitaSteam,
ensure the power is turned off at the power
outlet and the plug removed.
Wash the rice bowl, steam tray, drip trays and the lid with a soft cloth in warm, soapy
water, rinse and dry. Do not wash in an
automatic dishwasher as the hot water
temperatures and harsh detergents may
ultimately warp and scratch these parts.
DO NOT use abrasives, abrasive cleaners or
alkaline cleaning agents when cleaning as
these may scratch or damage the unit.
Wipe out the interior of the steamer base
with a warm, damp cloth or a small brush.
Wipe the exterior of the base with a damp
cloth or sponge. DO NOT use abrasives,
abrasive cleaners or alkaline cleaning agents
when cleaning as these may scratch or
damage the unit.
Warning.
NEVER IMMERSE THE BASE OF YOUR
STEAMER IN WATER OR ANY OTHER
LIQUID.
Important – Mineral Deposits.
Mineral deposits may accumulate on the
Exposed Heating Element which can result in
your Sunbeam VitaSteam switching off before
the cooking cycle is complete. To remove this
build up use a wet scouring pad and rub over
the surface of the heating element only after
each use.
8
Alternatively, prepare a solution of either:
(i) 2 cups of water in which 1 teaspoon of
cream of tartar has been dissolved; or
(ii) 2 cups of water to which 1 tablespoon
of lemon juice or white vinegar has been
added.
Pour the solution into the reservoir, position
the Lid and operate your Sunbeam VitaSteam
for approximately 15 minutes. Remove the
lid and clean as directed. If excess scale has
built up, repeat this process.
Note:
If food with a strong odour, such as fish
and cabbage has been steamed, the above
procedure may be followed with the Steamer
trays or rice cooker bowl in position. This will
ensure that the odour is not transferred to
the next steaming cycle.
Vegetables – guide to steaming times
The following are some handy hints on how
to steam vegetables:
1. Before steaming, wash the vegetables
thoroughly.
2. Cut off stems and peel if desired.
3. Cut vegetable to the desired size (smaller
pieces steam faster than larger ones).
4. To retain the vegetables flavour and
nutrients, steam until just tender, but still
slightly firm.
5. When steaming several different
vegetables at once, place the largest and
firmest in the steamer first. Add other
vegetables according to size during the
steaming time.
6. If a sauce or liquid is to be prepared
with the vegetables, use the rice bowl for
steaming.
7. Frozen vegetables should not be thawed
before steaming.
