Helpful Cooking Hints
  1. The diameter of the burner on your range top stove should be equal to the diameter of the cookware selected. When using a gas range, make sure the flame does not extend up the sides of the cookware.
  2. Choose the unit that accommodates the quantity of food you need to prepare. Do not over-fill your cookware.
  3. To brown or sear meat: With the lid on the unit, preheat the unit while EMPTY.
  4. To cook food, that does not need to be seared:
  • Rinse food
  • Place in unit
  • Place the lid on the unit
  • Use medium to low heat
    (Until you are comfortable using the waterless method, use 1-2 tablespoons of water per cup of food. Also, do not leave the kitchen area until you are used to your new cookware with your stove.)
  • After you see vapor escaping for 60 seconds:
  • Remove the unit from heat
  • DO NOT LIFT LID until the desired cooking time has elapsed
  • When your food has finished cooking:
  • Remove food from unit
  • Immediately put warm water in the unit
  • Let stand while you enjoy your meal
  • Clean with warm soapy water
  1. Occasionally, food will stick. We suggest the following:
  • Make a paste with stainless steel cleaner, like Cameo.
  • Clean the unit using a circular motion, with either a paper towel or a soft cloth.
  • DO NOT use cleaner containing bleach, like Ajax or Comet.
