Note: Never put anything else than water in the water tank.
If certain vegetables and fruits are steamed gently, they are perfect for babies who start to eat solid
food. Steaming is the healthiest way of preparing food, as the food retains lots of vitamins and other
Note: You can find recipes and the cooking times required for these recipes in the separate recipe
booklet. Note that the recipes are related to the age of the child.
Note: Do not steam frozen ingredients because the appliance cannot heat up frozen food to the
temperature required for steaming. Always defrost frozen solid ingredients before you steam them in this
appliance. Shake off any excess water from the defrosted ingredients before you put them in the jar.
Put the blade unit on the blade unit holder in the jar (Fig. 5).
Cut solid ingredients into small pieces (cubes not bigger than 2-3cm) before you put them in
Note: Do not process a large quantity of solid ingredients at the same time. Process these ingredients in a
series of small batches instead.
Put the ingredients in the jar. (Fig. 6)
Note: Do not exceed the top edge of the green blade unit.
Note: Never put water or any other liquid in the jar for steaming, to avoid damage to the appliance.
Put the valve in the lid of the jar (Fig. 7).
Note: Make sure the valve is fixed in the lid.
Put the sieve in the lid of the jar ('click') (Fig. 8).
Place the lid on the jar and turn it clockwise to fix it. The small projections on the lid have to
slide into the grooves in the jar. Make sure that the large projection of the lid is placed
exactly over the handle of the jar (Fig. 9).
Place the jar upside down on the motor unit, i.e. with the lid downwards. Make sure the
handle is on the right-hand side (Fig. 10).
Note: The appliance does not start steaming if the jar and handle are not in the correct position.
Turn the control knob to the steaming position.
The steaming light lights up orange to indicate that the appliance is steaming (Fig. 11).
Hot steam or hot water could burn your fingers. Do not touch and never let children touch hot
parts and steam, as this may cause scalds (Fig. 12).
The steaming time depends on the amount of water you have put in the water tank. See
the table in chapter 'Ingredients and steaming times' and the recipe booklet.
When the steaming process is finished, the appliance produces a buzzing sound and the
steaming light goes out.
Set the control knob to the off position. Wait 2 minutes until no more steam comes out of
the steam outlet, to avoid scalding by hot steam. (Fig. 13)
If you want to serve the steamed baby food without blending it, test the food on the back of
your hand to make sure it is at a safe temperature for your baby.
Note: If you want to steam another batch of ingredients, let the appliance cool down for 10 minutes
before you start steaming again.
