You have to use tap water only before turning the timer on. The water will boil to release steam

Steaming vegetables how do I...


Couldn't be simpler. Prepare your vegetables as normal ensuring root vegetables are cut into similar sized pieces and in a multilayer steamer the root vegetables will be in the lower section and the leaf vegetables in the upper sections with the fastest cooking at the top.

Depending how you like your veg cooked will depend on the cooking times. My wife boils the potatoes for a while before placing the steamer on top so all finish together - not a particularly scientific approach, just the result of experience...

If I steam my vegetables in the microwave, should I add extra water?


No - all it needs is the amount of water you used to rinse your vegetables. If you add more water it will be more like boiling than steaming.

If I want to steam my vegetables, do I have to buy a steamer basket or is there a cheaper alternative?


Don't rush out to buy a steamer. You can buy metal baskets that fold up (quite like a flower), they are very cheap and available in most kitchen/ hardware stores. They sit on top of boiling pots of water. They don't hold as much as traditional steamers but if you just want to do a few vegetables with your meal, it's a good option.

What are bamboo steamers?


Bamboo steamers are baskets that have interlocking trays with perforated holes. The bamboo steamer is put on top of a pot of boiling water and the steam goes through the holes in the steamer and cooks the vegetables in a very subtle and healthy way.

How does it work when you steam vegetables? How do they cook?


Steaming baskets (made from either metal or bamboo) are set on top of a pot of boiling water. The steam from the water enough cooks the vegetables without taking out all the nutrients. Steaming machines are available too.

I just divcovered my Rival Rice and vegetable steamer in my storage area. I loved it and used it quite a bit and can't figure out how it ended up in storage. I'm not sure of the model number - but my...


For white rice, put 2 cups water in the bottom and 2 cups water in the rice dish along with 2 cups rice (also in the rice dish!). Plug it in and when the light goes out, it's ready. Also, one thing to remember is to clean the little well after each use with a bit of vinegar so it doesn't build up hard water deposits (unless you're lucky enough not to have hard water!) It makes a BIG difference in the rice steamer's operation. BTW: each mark on the side of the steamer's base is about 1 cup which equals about 20 minutes of steam time. Hope that helps. -Donna

Here are the instructions that came with the cooker:

5. Secure lid and lock clamps. Open vent holes.
6. Microwave on medium setting (50%) for 10 - 12 minutes (white rice) or 18-20 (brown rice).
7. Remove from microwave, close vent holes and let stand with the lid fastened for 4-5 minutes (the steam continues to cook the rice.)
8. Remove rice from the cooker and fluff with a fork.
Yields: 3 cups of cooked rice or 4 to 6 servings.
Cooking Potatoes and Vegetables:
1. Insert Basket.
2. Pour one cup of water plus 1/4 tsp. salt into the bottom of the cooker.
