Guide for Steaming Vegetables, Poultry, Seafood and Hard-Cooked Eggs
Place indicated amount of water into the Cooking Bowl. The amount needed will vary according to the type
of food being cooked. Arrange foods in a single layer in the steaming tray. Vegetables should be cut in
similar sizes as indicated. Begin timing when unit is turned on. Cooking times are approximate and will yield
cooked but crisp/tender vegetables. Add more time for more tender/softer vegetables or cut back on time
for crispier vegetables to taste.
Rice cooker must be unplugged immediately after vegetables have finished cooking to prevent overcook-
ing. If cooking vegetables over rice, use chart to determine approximately when to add steaming tray to rice
cooker. Serve steamed vegetables immediately or plunge into ice water to stop cooking to use in salads and
other cold preparations.
