1.This unit is equipped with a grounded, 3-prongedcommercial plug. For safety, this plug MUST be connected to a 3 pronged outlet. Before connecting power, make sure the outlet’s voltage and frequency correspond to the data plate on the range (120 volts/60hz.)

2.Clean the unit thoroughly before initial use. (See Cleaning Instructions.)

3.Use with WET HEAT ONLY!!!Add up to a MAXIMUM of 2 gallons/ 8 quarts wateror other liquid into the aluminum water well. Actual water well amount required depends on how long you intend to keep the steamer running (i.e., one batch vs. several batches of food.) It is possible to steam a whole meal using as little as 2-3 cups of water, depending on the quantity of food, food type, and cooking time required. Liquid for steaming should not be higher than the bottom of the steam basket insert. IGNORE THE “MAX” FILL LINE on the inside of the steam basket.

DO NOT RUN THIS UNIT WITH THE WATER WELL EMPTY!!! Using this unit without water or other liquid in the well results in damage to the elements and will VOID THE WARRANTY. Make sure to check the water well periodically while in use, and add water whenever necessary to avoid allowing the well to go dry. (A security shut-offthermostat will shut the unit off when water is exhausted. However, the unit will then continue to cycle on and off until shut OFF or unplugged.)

4.The temperature control knob will adjust the temperature from 0 = OFF to 100 = 212°F = boiling. We recommend always using settings 70-80 or higher for food safety.

5.To begin, put liquid in the well, place lid on the unit*, and turn control knob to 100 until steam is produced.

6.The light will glow when the unit is turned on, and will go on and off during operation to indicate the thermostat powering up or down to maintain set temperature.

7.Place food in the steam basket. *Do not place the filled steam basket into the well until the unit has been preheated and steam is being produced, in order to accurately time your steaming.Your food product should ALWAYS be placed in the steam basket insert and NEVER placed directly in the water well.

8.A removable divider insert is included for placing in your steam basket if you choose to keep 2 types of food separate during steaming. It fits snugly into the steam basket, and divides the steam basket in half; just push it in.


-ALWAYSuse hot mitts or pot holder when lifting lid while steam is being produced. Long sleeved oven mitts are suggested. Steam can scald you quickly if you are not careful.

-ALWAYS tilt lid up from the back of the unit when lifting it so that the steam rises to the back of the unit, away from your face.

-Whenremoving the lid, allow the condensed hot water inside the lid to drip back into the steamer and not onto the floor.

-Nevermove or carry the steamer when it is switched on, and/or when containing hot foods or liquids.

10.Leave knob at 100 to maintain steam until food is cooked. Once the food is cooked, you may turn knob to lower settings (70-90as required) for on/off steaming, providing akeep-warmfeature.NOTE: Drippings from some foods may cause the boiling liquid to bubble up into the steam basket during
