Smart tips:1. Do not overload the steamer, as this may cause uneven steaming. Ensure that there is enough room around each food item to ensure that steam is circulated evenly.2. Ensure lid is closed during steaming and do not lift unnecessarily, as this will hinder the steaming process.3. To enjoy grains at their best, we recommend parboiling first and then finishing off by steaming.Instruction booklet.Please read these instructions before use.Before use:Before you use the food steamer for the first time, thoroughly clean all the components of the appliance, except for the base which contains electrical parts and should never come into contact with water.Operating instructions:1. Place the appliance on a stable, level surface. Pour in cold water up to the maximum mark.Warning:Do not add any salt, pepper, seasonings, herbs, wine, stock or any liquid other than tap water to the water basin.2.

The power indicator light will turn on for approximately 3-4 minutes before steaming will start.Condensation during steaming is normal.Note:The timer operates regardless of whether the steamer is plugged into the electrical outlet or not.Ensure that the power indicator light is on when setting the timer.8. When steaming is complete, the timer will ring once and the power indicator light will switch off. The appliance switches off automatically when the timer has completed.Warning:Take care when handling the base, baskets and lids during and after use, as they are very hot. To prevent burns, always use oven gloves or a cloth when removing the lid or steamer baskets, as hot steam will escape. Remove the lid slowly with the inside of the lid pointing away from you, and allow the steam to escape gradually. Hold lid over the unit to allow the condensation to drain into the steamer.Do not reach into the unit while steaming. Use a long utensil to check on steaming progress.9. In order to prevent foods from being overcooked, remove the steamer baskets immediately using a cloth, then place on a plate. If using the rice container, remove carefully, holding it by its sides.10. After use, unplug the appliance and allow to cool completely before storing it away.Note:Do not use abrasive, aggressive or caustic cleaning materials, as these can cause permanent damage to your appliance.Hints and tips:The steaming times stated in the charts and recipes are only a guide. Times may vary depending on the size of food pieces, spacing of the food in the steamer basket, freshness of food and personal preference. As you become familiar with the steamer, adjust cooking times.Steaming times are for the quantity stated in the chart or recipe. For larger or smaller quantities, adjust the time accordingly.The steaming times are all based on food cooked in the lower basket, unless specifically stated otherwise. Food cooked in the upper basket may take slightly longer to cook.All times stated in the charts and recipes are based on the use of cold water.Always place the largest pieces or foods with the longest cooking time in the lower basket.While steaming meat or poultry and vegetables, always place the meat or poultry in the lower basket so that juices from raw or partially cooked meat cannot drip onto other food.Steaming times for food in the upper basket are usually slightly longer; therefore allow an extra 5 minutes for steaming.If foods with different cooking times are being steamed, start by cooking the food with the longest cooking time in the lower basket lid with oven mitts or a cloth and place the upper basket on top. Cover with lid and continue steaming.Steaming charts and recipes:Important:For recipes with longer cooking times, reset the timer and top up with more water. When refilling, always switch off the appliance first. Empty the drip tray carefully, as the liquid may be hot. Add sufficient warm water (but not boiling water) for the remaining steaming time.Steaming vegetables:Cut off thick stems from cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage.Steam leafy, green vegetables for the shortest time possible, as they lose their colour easily.Season vegetables after steaming for best results.Frozen vegetables should not be thawed before steaming.Food - type - quantity - steam times.Artichokes - fresh - 3 medium - 45-50 min.Aparagus - fresh - 400g - 13-15 min.Aparagus - frozen - 400g - 16-18 min.Baby sweet corn - fresh - 230g - 30-35 min.Green beans - fresh - 400g - 38-40 min.Broccoli - fresh florets - 400g - 16-18 min.Broccoli - fresh florets - 400g - 15-18 min.Cabbage - fresh, sliced - 400g - 35-40 min.Carrots - fresh, sliced - 400g - 20-22 min.Cauliflower - fresh florets - 400g - 16-18 min.Courgettes - frozen - 400g - 18-20 min.Courgettes - fresh, sliced - 400g - 15-18 min.Button mushrooms - fresh - 200g - 12-15 min.Peas - frozen - 400g - 15-18 min.Potatoes - fresh, quarters - 400g - 20-22 min.Spinach - fresh - 250g - 8-10 min.Spinach - frozen - 400g - 18-20 min.Steaming rice:If you prefer stickier rice, remove the drip tray.Use the rice bowl and add the required quantity of liquid with the rice.Food - type - quantity - steam times.Rice - white - 200g - 20 min.Rice - brown - 400g - 30 min.Steaming fish and seafood:Fish is cooked when it is opaque and flakes easily with a fork.Frozen fish may be steamed without defrosting if separated before steaming and the cooking time is extended.Add lemon wedges and herbs while steaming to improve flavour.Food - type - quantity - steam times.Fish - fresh - 250g - 6-8 min.Fillets - frozen - 250g - 10-12 min.Fish - salmon - 250/400g - 10-12 min.Steaks - tuna - 250/400g - 12-15 min.Mussels - fresh - 400g - 810 min.Oysters - fresh - 6 - 10-16 min.Steaming meat and poultry:Steaming has the advantage of allowing fat to drip away during cooking.
