Uniformly cut foods will steam more evenly.
Stir food halfway through a longer steam cycle for more even steaming.
Foods that require longer cooking times should be placed in lower steaming baskets.
Place foods that require gentle steaming or shorter cooking times in higher baskets.
You’ll need to experiment to find the times which suit your favourite foods and food
combinations.
Use the rice bowl to cook any foods that are in a sauce or liquid.
Poultry or fish juices may drip and transfer flavours. To help prevent this, wrap them in foil.
Don’t use mussels that are open prior to cooking. Steam until the shells open fully, and
discard any that aren’t open after cooking.
Cook meat, poultry, etc. until the juices run clear. Cook fish till the flesh is opaque
throughout.
You should cook leaf vegetables as little as possible, to keep them green and crisp.
Plunging them into iced water will stop the cooking process.
