Open Question

How do I steam foods with the Continental multicooker model ce23271?


Awhile ago, I bought a Continental electric multicooker that is supposed to deep fry and also steam foods etc. The only instructions in the booklet are for frying yet the dial on the product has a setting for steaming. I had wanted to make some tamales by steaming them. Do you have instructions for using the steamer?

I can't find in the instruction manual if you are supposed to leave on the lid whilst frying...

If that model has a vent the lid is meant to be closed. There may be a mesh screen or something to collect any oil spatters or vapor and this will allow any steam to escape. On mine it is right over the tray and has a window beside it. It is interesting to watch it the first few times you use it but after the "thrill" of cleaning the spatter after a real big fry up you will want to close it ;-]

What kind of oil (vegtable or corn oil )


Please use blended vegetable oil, pure corn oil, sunflower oil,
soybean oil or grapeseed (canola oil) because these oils have a high
smoke point. Peanut oil is not recommended because it greatly
impacts the flavor.

• Oils should never be mixed when deep frying.
• High heat, water, and burnt food particles break down the oil’s smoke
• Replace oil if you notice:
- Excessive smoking at normal temperatures
- Strong oil discoloration
- A rancid smell
- Excessive foaming around the frying food

Thanks for using FixYa. Do rate the solution as Fixya if found helpful.

Danger of Physical Harm

It sounds like a water pocket in something opened up. Food that is already cooking won't erupt grease unless there is a sudden addition of moisture. The unit should be safe to use. Just make sure you wick the moisture off things before you fry them. It would be shameful to stop eating fried foods, they're the best tasting type of food.

Do not know how to use

Oil darkens with use the oil food molecules burn when subjected to high prolonged heat.
When frying foods such as fish or chicken use the oil once.

Do not filter oil over to reuse. Storing the oil in the refrigerator may extend the life of the oil, this should not be done ever. This process of chilling the oil and then burning the oil to room temperature causes excessive splattering furing the heat up.

Storing the covered oil in a cool dark place, for up to three months. ( remember to check oil when you use for color, smell, or excessive foaming. Throw out if there is signs of all the above.

This unit has a warranty for one year from the day of purchase.


When starting let unit reheat 7-10 minutes. This will get the heat to desired temperature. Re4ady light will cycle on/off during frying as temperature fluctuates due to food load.
Types of foods cooking: temperatures and time of cooking

Chicken strips 375 F. 5-8 minutes

Chicken pieces, bone-in 375 F. 15-20 minutes

Fish, battered 340 F. 8-10 minutes

French fries, frozen 375F. 3-5 minutes

F375F. 3-5 minutes

Onion rings 375 F. 3-5 minutes

Shrimp, breaded 375 F. 2-5 minutes
When frying frozen food if iced rub off lose as this can make the temperature of oil cool down. Pre-cooked frozen food cooks faster and does not come out oily.

I cannot wait to start cooking in mine as I got it for a christmas gift. Great recipes in the owners manual:

Apples fritters yum yum,beer batter for fish or chicken, deep fried chicken , chicken Kiev, quick doughnut made from biscuits, add topping of ground cinnamon and suger.
