FlavorMaster™ Multifunction Cooker Programs
FlavorMaster™ Multifunction Cooker Programs
Pressure Cooker Programs
Rice Cooking Program
Pressure cooking allows you to cook foods under pressure in as much as 70% less time compared to traditional cooking methods. Pressure
cooking is fast, easy, cost effective and a healthy way to prepare delicious food! The following instructions can be applied to the “MEAT/
STEW”, “POULTRY”, “BEANS/CHILI”, “SOUP” and “STEAM” programs:
1. Before each use, make sure the silicone gasket and the pressure regulating valves are clean and in place.
2. Plug the cord into a wall outlet.
3. Position the removable inner cooking pot in the FlavorMaster™ Cooker base and add ingredients according to your favorite recipe.
When cooking foods under pressure, a minimum of 1 cup (236.59 ml) is required.
NOTES:
o
o
4.
5.
6.
Do not fill the pot more than 2/3 full with food and liquid. Do not fill it more than 1/2 full when cooking foods that expand during cooking (i.e. rice).
Certain foods should not be cooked under pressure, including: apple sauce, cranberries, pearl barley, oatmeal, split peas, thick pasta noodles, and rhubarb. These foods tend to foam, froth and sputter and can block the pressure valve.
Place lid on the FlavorMaster™ Cooker and turn in a counterclockwise motion until the lid locks into place (the locking pin will click into place).
Turn the pressure regulator knob to the “SEAL” position.
Choose the desired cooking function on the control panel
NOTE: If the lid is not locked in place properly, the digital display will show “LID”.
7.
8.
9.
Adjust cooking time if necessary to meet recipe guidelines and accommodate foods that require extra cooking time.
With the cooking time in the digital display window, press the Start button to begin the preheating and pressure building. If the “START” button is not pressed within 20 seconds, the display window will read “0:00”.
Once the appropriate pressure has been reached the unit will beep and start to count down the cooking time.
!
WARNING Never try to force the lid open while you are cooking under pressure. This can result in a serious accident.
!
WARNING Never deep fry under pressure as oil under pressure is very dangerous and may cause a fire.
10.The FlavorMaster™ Cooker will beep once the cooking time ends. It will immediately switch to the “WARM” function until the “START/CANCEL” button is pressed to cancel the program. After pressing the “START/CANCEL” button, release the pressure. There are 2 options to do this:
a. Quick Release Method: Release the pressure immediately by turning the pressure regulator knob to the “RELEASE” position. All the pressure will be released in seconds.
!
CAUTION
The steam coming out of the cooker will be extremely hot and may contain droplets of boiling liquid. Always keep you face and hands away from the top of the pressure regulator.
(continued)
This program is designed to cook dishes such as rice, polenta and risotto.
1. Put the removable inner cooking pot in the FlavorMaster™ Cooker.
2. Add at least 8oz (236.59ml) of water or cooking liquid to the pot.
3. Add the appropriate amount of grain to the liquid, following the grain to liquid ratio indicated by the recipe. Do not fill the pot more than half full.
4. Place the lid on the FlavorMaster™ Cooker and turn in a counterclockwise rotation unit it locks in place. The locking pin will click into place.
5. Turn the pressure regulator knob to the “SEAL” position.
6. Press the “RICE” button and adjust time as necessary.
7. With the cooking time in the digital display window, press the “START” button to begin the preheating and pressure building. If the “START” button is not pressed within 20 seconds, the display window will read “0:00”.
8. Once the appropriate pressure has been reached the unit will beep and start to count down the cooking time.
9. The FlavorMaster™ Cooker will beep once the cooking time ends. It will immediately switch to the “WARM” function until the “START/CANCEL” button is pressed to cancel the program.
10.To release pressure, follow point 10 and 11 from the Pressure Cooker Porograms section above.
Slow Cooking Program
Slow Cooking allows you to cook slowly in a classic method for tender results every time. Ingredients can be loaded for slow cooker classics
such as pot roasts, soups and stews in the morning and dinner will be ready when you get home.
1. Position the removable inner cooking pot in the FlavorMaster™ Cooker base.
2. Add ingredients according to your favorite slow cooker recipe.
3. Place the lid on the FlavorMaster™ Cooker and turn in a counterclockwise rotation until it locks in place. The locking pin will click into place.
4. Turn the pressure regulator knob to the “RELEASE” position.
5. Press the “SLOW COOK” button and adjust time as necessary.
6. With the cooking time in the digital display window, press the “START” button to begin cooking. The display panel will count down the cooking time.
7. The FlavorMaster™ Cooker will beep once the cooking time ends. It will immediately switch to the “WARM” function until the “START/CANCEL” button is pressed to cancel the program.
Warm Program
The “WARM” program keeps foods warm after the cooking process has ended. It automatically begins after timed cooking ends for the
following programs: “MEAT/STEW”, “POULTRY”, “SLOW COOK”, “BEANS/CHILI”, “RICE”, and “SOUP”. The “WARM” function remains on
until it is cancelled (“START/CANCEL” button) or up to a maximum of 8 hours.
b. Natural Release Method: Let the pressure drop naturaly without turning the pressure regulator knob to the “RELEASE” position. This will take several minutes, during which time the food inside will continue to cook. Some recipes (such as risotto) benefit from this extra cooking time. Once the pressure has been released, the floating valve will drop and you will be able to open the lid.
11. Once all of the pressure is released, remove the lid by turning it clockwise, lifting it up and tilting it away from you to avoid being scalded by some remaining steam or hot water condensation dripping from the inner part of the lid.
!
WARNING After cooking, the inner cooking pot will be very hot. Use oven mitts or pot holders to handle it or let it cool down
completely before removing.
