• Use foods directly from where they are stored, such as from a refrigerator or freezer.
• Use inverted lid to hold hot steaming basket.
• Stir vegetables half way through cooking cycle.
• Times are to be used as a guide; increase or decrease time according to personal
preference.
• Solid foods such as chicken, fish steaks and fillets should be placed in a single layer.
• When using multiple baskets:
- The longest cooking foods should be placed in the bottom steaming basket
