Within about 20 seconds, steam will start to fill the baskets.
When the timer runs down, a bell will sound, and the heating element will switch off.
To stop steaming before the timer has finished, unplug the unit. DO NOT try to turn the
timer anticlockwise because this will damage it.
WARNING
Use extreme caution when removing the baskets. Never remove all the baskets together.
Remove the baskets one at a time starting with the top one. Use oven gloves or similar to
help protect against burns from hot steam.
BOILING DRY
In the event that all of the water has been used up during steaming (boil-dry), a protection
device will switch your steamer off. If this happens, unplug the base unit, let it cool for a couple
of minutes, then top it up and restart the steamer.

•
Ensure the base unit always contains an adequate level of water during use.
The steaming lid should be kept on at all times during steaming.
To stop steaming at any time, unplug the unit. DO NOT try to turn the timer anticlockwise
because this will damage it.
Arrange food in a single layer.
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.

DE-SCALING YOUR STEAMER
Over time, mineral deposits can affect your steamer’s performance. Removing these deposits (or
de-scaling) is recommended every 3 months.

the solution into the base unit.
2. Fit the steam guide, drip tray, one steaming basket and the lid.
3. Steam for 20 minutes
4. Unplug the unit and allow it to cool completely.
5. Pour out the descaling solution.
6. Rinse the base unit and drip tray several times with cold water until all traces of descaler
have been removed.
7. Wash all removable parts in warm soapy water or on the top rack of the dishwasher.
Products returned under guarantee with faults due to scale will be subject to a repair charge.
