Cooking Techniques

Baking Tray •
High Rack •

Steam Basket

Place food in steam basket on high rack in baking tray so steam reaches all sides

and cooking is even. For faster cooking, use upper level in oven. Foods crowded

together will take longer to cook, so position with enough space between items to

allow the steam to circulate.


Covering is not necessary in most cases. It a cover is required, aluminum foil is
recommended to keep food from becoming wet.


For accurate cooking times, keep the door closed.


Sometimes soups or casseroles reheated without covering look watery after cooking.

Appearance will be better if stirred well.


Standing time is recommended after cooking to allow heat to disperse equally through­

out the food. Do not allow to stand in the oven for a long time; food may be over­
cooked or wet from the residual steam.




Steam mode can be used to blanch vegetables to prepare them for freezing.

Place the prepared vegetables in the steam basket on the high rack in the baking tray.

Use upper level in oven. Press Steam, MANUAL and desired time 4 - 5 minutes. Press

START. After steaming, put in cold water to cool quickly. Drain and then freeze.
