Correct use
~The steam oven becomes hot when in use.
You could burn yourself on the oven interior, cooked food, oven
accessories or hot steam.
Wear oven gloves when placing food in the oven or removing it and
when adjusting oven shelves etc. in a hot oven. Take care when
putting cooking containers into the oven or removing them not to
spill the contents.
~Danger of burning.
There may be some residual hot water in the water container at the
end of a cooking process. Take care not to tip the water container
when taking it out of the appliance.
~Do not heat up unopened tins of food or bottle food in tins in the
appliance, as pressure will build up in the tin, causing it to explode.
~You could injure yourself on the open door. Avoid leaving the
door open unnecessarily,
~Plastic dishes which are not temperature- and steam-resistant
melt at high temperatures and can damage the appliance.
Use temperature- (to 100 °C) and steam-resistant plastic dishes.
Follow the manufacturer's instructions.
~Food which is left in the oven to be kept hot can dry out, as
moisture in the food could lead to corrosion damage in the
appliance. Do not leave cooked food in the oven and do not use any
cooking containers which are susceptible to corrosion
~For reasons of hygiene and to prevent the build-up of moisture in
the appliance, the water container should be emptied after each
use.

Disposal of the packing
material
The packaging is designed to protect
the appliance from damage during
transportation. The packaging materials
used are selected from materials which
are environmentally friendly for disposal
and should be recycled.
Recycling the packaging reduces the
use of raw materials in the
manufacturing process and also
reduces the amount of waste in landfill
sites.
Disposal of your old appliance
Electrical and electronic appliances
often contain valuable materials. They
also contain materials which, if handled
or disposed of incorrectly, could be
potentially hazardous to human health
and to the environment. They are,
however, essential for the correct
functioning of your appliance. Please
do not therefore dispose of it with your
household waste.
Please dispose of it at your local
community waste collection/recycling
centre or contact your dealer for
advice. Ensure that it presents no
danger to children while being stored
for disposal.

The maximum water level is 1.2 litres, the minimum 0.75 litres.
The water level markers are located inside and outside the
container. On no account exceed the upper or maximum
level marker.
The maximum quantity of 1.2 litres of water is sufficient to run
a cooking programme at 100 °C for approx. 2 hours, and the
minimum quantity of 0.75 litres of water is sufficient to run a
cooking programme at 100 °C for approx. 30 minutes,
providing the door is not opened.
If the p symbol is flashing, either the water container is not
sitting correctly or there is not enough water in it.

Setting the water hardness level
The steam oven is set at the factory to the hard (S04) water
hardness setting. It must be adjusted to local water hardness
to ensure problem-free operation and so that descaling can
be carried out at the correct interval. The harder the water,
the more often the appliance will need to be descaled.
^ Check the hardness of your local water supply and adjust
the water hardness as necessary (see "Settings").
Setting the correct boiling point for water
Before cooking food for the first time, you must set the boiling
point for water, as this varies according to the altitude of the
location of the appliance. This procedure adjusts the
appliance to the altitude in your area and also flushes out the
waterways.
This process must be carried out to ensure efficient
functioning of your appliance.
^ Run the appliance at 100 °C for 15 minutes. Proceed as
described in "Brief operating instructions".
If you move house, the appliance will need to be re-set for
the new altitude if this differs from the old one by more than
300 m. To do this, descale the appliance (see "Cleaning and
care / Descaling").

Pre-heating
Your appliance has a pre-heating function. This heats the
oven interior to approx. 40 °C. The heating-up time is then
shorter as the oven interior is pre-heated and therefore the
cooking process takes less time.
The appliance is delivered with the pre-heating function
deactivated. If you wish to use it you will need to alter the
setting (see "Settings").
When the pre-heating function has been activated you can
still choose whether you want to use it for each programme.
The water container must be filled with water for
pre-heating and present in the appliance.
The pre-heating process will be cancelled if the door is
opened. You can start the process again by switching the

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.
Cooking with steam also retains the true taste of the food
better than conventional cooking. We therefore recommend
seasoning the food after it has been cooked. Food retains its
fresh, orginal colour.
Suitable containers
Cooking containers
This steam oven is supplied with stainless steel cooking
containers.
Other containers, in a variety of sizes, both perforated and
solid, are available as optional extras (please refer to
"Optional accessories"). This enables you to choose the most
suitable container for the food you are preparing.
It is best to use perforated containers if possible. The steam
can reach the food from all sides and the food is cooked
evenly.
Your own containers
You can also use your own containers. Please note:
– If using plastic cooking containers, make sure that they are
heat-resistant to 100 °C and able to withstand hot steam.
With plastic containers please check with the manufacturer
that they are suitable for use in a steam oven.
– Thick-sided containers made from porcelain, china or
stoneware, for example, are not so suitable for steam
cooking. They do not conduct heat well and as a result
cooking durations will be considerably longer than those
given in the charts.
General notes
27
Page: 28
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.
1 kg of potatoes will take the same time to cook as 500 g.
The durations given in the charts are guidelines only. We
recommend selecting the shorter cooking duration quoted. If
food is not cooked sufficiently after the shorter time it can be
put back in the oven and cooked for longer.
Cooking with liquid
When cooking with liquid only fill the cooking container 2
/3 full
to prevent the liquid spilling when the cooking container is
removed from the oven.
Your own recipes
Food and recipes which are prepared in pot or a pan can
also be cooked in the steam oven. The cooking times in the
steam oven will be the same. Please note that food will not be
brown or crisp when cooking with steam.
General notes

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.
If vegetables have frozen together in clumps, break these up
before cooking with steam. Follow the manufacturer's
instructions on the packaging regarding cooking duration.
Cooking containers
Food such as peas or asparagus spears, which have little or
no space between them will take longer to cook because the
steam has less space to work in. For an even result, it is best
to use a shallow container for these types of foods, and only
fill it 3-5 cm deep. When cooking large quantities divide the
food between 2 or 3 shallow cooking containers rather than
using one deep one.
Different types of vegetables which take the same length of
time to cook can be cooked together.
Use solid containers for vegetables which are cooked in
liquid.
Shelf level
When cooking vegetables with a distinctive colour (e.g
beetroot) in a perforated container, place the perforated
container directly above the condensate tray to avoid any
colour transfer.
Steam cooking

Page: 30
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. 22 minutes
Brussels sprouts, large, al dente = approx. 12 minutes
Brussels sprouts, small, soft = approx. 12 minutes

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. The thicker the
piece of meat, the longer the cooking duration. A piece of
meat weighing 500 g which is 10 cm thick will take longer to
cook than a piece of meat weighing 500 g which is 5 cm
thick.
Tips
If you want to preserve the juices, cook in a perforated
container. Place a solid container underneath to catch the
juices.
You can use these to make a gravy or freeze them for later
use.
Boiling fowl, back or top rib and meat bones can all be used
to make stock. Place the meat together with some mixed
vegetables in a solid cooking container and add cold water.
The longer the cooking duration, the stronger the stock.

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.
Cooking containers
If using a perforated container to cook fish, grease it
beforehand.
Shelf level
When cooking fish in a perforated container at the same time
as cooking other types of food in other containers, place the
container with the fish directly above the condensate tray to
catch any liquid and so avoid any transfer of tastes to other
food.
Temperature
85 °C – 90 °C
For gently cooking delicate types of fish, such as sole.
100 °C
For cooking firmer types of fish, e.g. cod and salmon.
Also for cooking fish in sauce or stock.
Steam cooking
37
Page: 37
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.
The longer fish cooks, the firmer its flesh will become. Use the
cooking durations given in the chart.
If you find that the fish is not cooked sufficiently only cook it
for a few minutes more.
When cooking fish in sauce or stock, we recommend that you
increase the cooking duration quoted by a few minutes.
Tips
Adding herbs and spices, such as dill, will help bring out the
full flavour of the fish.
Cook large fish in the swimming position. To help maintain the
shape of the fish, place a small cup or similar upside down in
the cooking container, and arrange the fish bellyside down
over the cup.
You can use any fish scraps, e.g. fish heads, bones, tails etc
to make a fish stock. Place the fish scraps together with
some mixed vegetables in a solid cooking container and add
cold water. Cook at 100 °C for 60 to 90 minutes. The longer
the cooking duration, the stronger the stock.
Blue fish is fish which is cooked in water and vinegar (refer
to the recipe for the ratio of water to vinegar). It is important
not to damage the skin of the fish. This method is suitable for
cooking carp, trout, tench, eel and salmon.

types of food which have different cooking durations, e.g. fish
fillet with rice and broccoli. The food which has the longest
cooking duration is placed in the steam oven first and then
each subsequent dish is placed in the oven at the
appropriate time so that the whole meal is ready at the same
time.
Shelf level
When cooking fish or food with a distinctive colour (e.g.
beetroot) in a perforated container, place the perforated
container directly above the condensate tray to avoid any
transfer of tastes or colour to other food.
Temperature
Whole meals should be cooked at a temperature of 100 °C as
this is the temperature required to cook the majority of foods.
Do not cook a whole meal at the lowest temperature when
different temperatures are required for different types of food,
e.g. 85 °C for seabream and 100 °C for potatoes.
If the recommended cooking temperature for the food is
85 °C for example, try cooking it at 100 °C and testing the
result. Some delicate types of fish with a soft structure, e.g.
sole and plaice will become very firm when cooked at 100 °C.
Cooking duration
If you are increasing the recommended temperature, shorten
the cooking duration by approx. 1
/3.
