General notes This section contains general information about steam cooking. You will find more detailed information about particular foods and how to cook them in the other sections. The advantages of cooking with steam Almost all vitamins and minerals are retained as the food is not immersed in water.
General notes – Place the cooking container in a sufficiently large perforated container, not on the oven floor. – Ensure that there is a gap of at least 3 cm between the upper rim of the container and the top of the cooking compartment to allow sufficient steam into the container.
General notes Cooking duration (time) In general, the cooking durations for cooking with steam are the same as for cooking food in a saucepan. More information about any factors which may affect the cooking duration is given in the relevant sections. The quantity of food does not affect the cooking duration.
Steam cooking Vegetables Fresh Prepare fresh vegetables in the usual way, i.e. wash, clean and cut them up. Frozen Frozen vegetables do not need to be defrosted beforehand, Exception: vegetables frozen in a block. Frozen and fresh vegetables which take the same length of time to cook can be cooked together.
Steam cooking Cooking duration As with conventional methods, when cooking vegetables with steam the cooking duration will depend on the size and also whether you want the vegetables to be al dente or soft/well done. Example: waxy potatoes, cut into quarters = approx. 18 minutes waxy potatoes, cut in half = approx.
Steam cooking Meat Fresh Prepare the meat in the usual way. Frozen Meat should be thoroughly defrosted before cooking in the steam oven (see "Defrosting"). Preparation For meat which needs to be seared before being cooked, sear the meat in a pan on the hob first. Cooking duration The cooking duration depends on the thickness and the texture of the meat, and not on the weight.

If food is not cooked sufficiently after the shorter time it can be put back in the oven and cooked for longer. Meat Duration in minutes...
Steam cooking Fish Fresh Prepare fresh fish in the usual way, i.e. clean, gut and fillet. Frozen Defrost frozen fish before cooking (see "Defrosting"). Preparation Add some lemon or lime juice to fish before cooking. The citric acid makes the flesh stay firm. It is not necessary to season fish with salt when cooking with steam as this method retains the minerals which give the fish its unique flavour.
Steam cooking Cooking duration The cooking duration depends on the thickness and the texture of the fish, and not on the weight. The thicker the fish, the longer the cooking duration. A 3 cm thick piece of fish weighing 500 g will take longer to cook than a 2 cm thick piece of fish weighing 500 g.
Steam cooking Settings Temperature: See chart Duration: See chart The cooking durations given in the chart are guidelines for fresh fish. We recommend selecting the shorter cooking duration quoted.

Steam cooking Dried pulses Soak pulses for at least 10 hours in cold water before cooking. Soaking makes pulses more digestible and shortens the cooking duration required. Exception: Lentils do not need to be soaked before cooking. Soaked pulses must be covered with liquid during cooking. With unsoaked pulses a specific ratio of pulses : water is required.
Steam cooking Hen's eggs Use a perforated container to cook boiled eggs in the steam oven. The eggs do not need to be pierced before cooking as they are gradually warmed during the heating up phase and so do not burst when they are cooked with steam. Use a solid container for preparing egg dishes, such as scrambled eggs.
Steam cooking Fruit Cook fruit in a solid container so that none of the juice is lost. If you wish to cook fruit in a perforated container, place a solid container directly underneath it to collect the juice. You can use the juice which has collected in the solid container to make a glaze for a fruit flan.
Steam cooking Menu cooking (cooking whole meals) You can use the steam oven to cook a whole meal containing types of food which have different cooking durations, e.g. fish fillet with rice and broccoli.
