Steam Cooking Performance - Grain and Rice Cooker

Possible Solution

Below are some tips for improving steaming performance

Food Doesn't Steam or Is Too Hard

  • Are there too many items in the steamer basket? Reduce the amount of ingredients or increase the cooking time. 
  • Is the food too large? Cut the ingredients into smaller sizes or increase the cooking time. 
  • Use the Steam chart for guidance on cooking amounts and time. 

Food Is Cold

  • How long was the food left in the steamer basket? Take out the ingredients immediately after cooking. Do not leave on KEEP WARM.
