care & cleaning
1 Unplug cord from outlet and allow Steamer to
cool before cleaning.
2 Never immerse the Base, Cord or Plug in water.
3 Empty the Water Reservoir.
4 Wash Lid and Steaming Bowls in hot, soapy water.
Rinse and dry all parts, or wash on top rack of dishwasher.
5 Clean Reservoir with soapy water then wipe with damp cloth.
6 Do not use abrasive cleaners.
7 In hard water areas, the scale may build up on the heating
element. If scale is allowed to accumulate, the steam could
turn off before the food is cooked. After 7-10 uses, pour clear
vinegar into the Water Reservoir to the "MIN" level, then fill
with water up to the "MAX" level. Do not place Lid and
Steaming Bowls on base during this procedure.
8 Plug in and set timer to 20 minutes. When the timer is
complete, unplug cord from outlet. Allow the unit to cool
completely before emptying the water reservoir. Use cold
water to rinse the water reservoir several times.
