Default Steamer Recipes

My sister gave me one of the multi-procduct cook things for Christmas. (When she gave it to me she said that she thought I would love it because I try and eat so healthy). Anyways itís a steamer, crockpot, deep fryer (bad!!!). I wont use the deep fryer but Iíve used it as a crockpot to make stew, soup and chili but I want to figure out how to use the steamer. Any recipes, instructions or tips would be helpful.

Have you gone onto the manufacturer's site?

Many times they will have recipes.

Didn't it come with a cookbook? You could certainly adapt some of those recipes if it did.

What brand is it? How big is it? My crockpot is huge, so I think that something a bit smaller that also steams sounds ideal.

Yeah, go to the manufacturer's web site. You should be able to search their site by the part number. Once that comes up, they'll often have a downloadable/printable users' manual. (The part number should be on the box, or on the sticker on the back or bottom of the cooker).

Good luck! I love both my CrockPot and my steamer.

It is the prestions options multi-cooker and steamer. It is 6 quarts.

For the website they don’t have any recipes listed for this product or a similar product. They have recipes for other products and for the deep fryer (which I don’t want to use). They manual has recipes for several soups and stews which is helpful and I’ve used but I’m more concerned with the steamer. I didn’t know if there was anything you could do besides steam veggies. The veggies instruction was to put two cup of water in base, set heat at 250 degrees, and has a time chart. I’ve just never had or actually seen someone use a steamer (I’ve used crockpots before so I’m not so worried about that.)

There are recipes in this manual, as well as boiling, blanching, steaming (veggies, fish, and rice), and stewing recipes, etc.

Here is a link to the manual:
