Quick Use Guide – AS1510BL HOW TO USE YOUR 3 TIER STEAMER & RICE COOKER Once you have cleaned and assembled the steamer according to directions, place the unit on a flat, sturdy surface with adequate clearance (i.e., do not place under cabinets or on carpeting or other soft surfaces). 1. Fill the water reservoir with clean, cold water only. Pour the water directly into the water tank only up to the maximum fill. Do not overfill. NOTE: do not use seasoning or any other liquid in the water tank. When adding water while cooking, you do not need to remove steaming bowls; simply use the exterior water fill areas on either side of the base. While food is cooking, you can check the water level indicator window and carefully add additional water using the water inlet without moving any of the steaming bowls. 2. Do not let the water go below the “Min” level in the water level indicator window. 3. Clean and prepare your food 4. Review the timing charts supplied in the instruction manual for optimum steaming results 5. If setting the timer for less than 15 minutes, be sure to turn the knob PAST 15 minutes then back to your desired lower time. The maximum controlled time is 90 minutes. If you need to cook food longer than 90 minutes, you will need to check the water level, add water if needed and reset the timer. 6. If using more than one steaming bowl, place the largest food with the longest steaming time in the lowest tray. 7. Eggs can be cooked by placing them in the small depressions in the bottom of each steaming bowl. USING THE RICE BOWL 1. Place rice or other foods with sauce or liquid in the rice bowl. Place the rice bowl in the lowest steaming bowl and cover. 2. Set the timer for the recommended cooking time. 3. When food is fully cooked to your taste, unplug the unit. 4. After cooking, for best results, allow the rice to stand for 5 to 10 minutes with the lid on. Carefully open the lid, taking care to avoid escaping steam. Use a long handled utensil or rice paddle to mix the rice and allow steam to escape. Cook with the rice bowl as a single tier for best steaming results. NOTE: If cooking continuously and the water drops below the MIN level, add water using the exterior water fill slots. If during cooking, there is no more water in the water tank, the appliance stops cooking as a safety measure. REMOVING FOOD FROM THE STEAMING BOWLS 1. Lift the lid by the handle, making sure to avoid escaping steam from burning your hands and arms. 2. Allow water collected in the lid to drip back into the steaming bowl. 3. Remove steam bowls using the handles. 4. Remove and serve food using long handled utensils to avoid injury. NOTE: Use oven gloves or pot holders when handling steaming bowls, juice collector, etc. BEFORE FIRST USE • Make sure the voltage in your outlet is the same as the voltage indicated on the appliance.
