Congratulations on the purchase of your new George Foreman Food Steamer. Each unit 

is manufactured to ensure safety and reliability. Before using the Food Steamer for the first 

time, please read this instruction booklet carefully and keep it for future reference. Pass it 

on if you pass on the appliance.
When using this appliance, basic safety precautions should always be followed.

Before using your steamer for the first time

• Read all of the instructions included in this manual.

• Remove any packaging material and labels from the food steamer.

• Wash the lid, steamer baskets, rice bowl, drip tray and turbo ring in warm soapy water. 

Rinse and dry thoroughly.

• Wipe the inside of the water reservoir with a damp cloth, and dry thoroughly.

Assembling the steamer

• Place the steamer base on a stable surface.

• Place the turbo steam ring over the heating element (largest diameter on the bottom). 

This sits loosely.

• Fit the drip tray on top of the steamer base.

• Stack the steamer baskets on top of the drip tray and cover with the lid.

Stacking the steamer baskets

• The baskets can be stacked in various combinations – however they only stack in 

sequential order. This means basket 3 fits on top of 2, and 2 on top of 1.

• You can use all three baskets at a time, just two or only one.

• You cannot fit basket 3 on top of basket 1.

• The baskets are numbered on the side handles.

Using your Steamer

• Place the steamer base on a stable surface.

• Place the turbo steam-ring over the heating element (largest diameter on the bottom).

 

  This sits loosely.

• Fill the water reservoir up to MAX on the water level indicator with fresh, clean water.

NOTE: Only use clean, fresh water in your steamer. Do not use stock or any other liquids.

• Fit the drip tray on top of the water reservoir.

• Place the food to be steamed into the steamer basket/s.

TIP: Food cut into similar sized portions will cook at a similar rate.

• Stack the steamer baskets on top of the drip tray.

• Fit the lid onto the top steamer basket.

• Plug the steamer into a power outlet and turn the power on. 

• Set the timer as required. (See ‘Setting the timer’ section)

• When time has elapsed, the steamer will switch to ‘Keep Warm’.

CAUTION: The steamer will be hot! Take care when removing the lid as steam will escape 

and the steamer baskets and rice bowl will be hot. 

• Once the steaming process has completed, press the ‘0/I’ button to switch the ‘Keep 

Warm’ function Off.

• Using oven mitts or a cloth, carefully remove the lid from the steamer. 

• Remove the baskets and place them on a heat resistant surface.

• Unplug the steamer from the power outlet and allow to cool before cleaning.

Setting the timer

• To begin steaming, push the ‘0/I’ button. The display will show ‘45’, flashing:

 

• Using the ‘+’ or ‘-‘ buttons, set the desired time you wish to steam for. Time increases and 

decreases in 5 minute increments.

NOTE: If you set the timer to ‘0’ it will automatically switch back to the clock mode, and you 

will have to start the process again. The maximum steam time you can set is 90 minutes.

• Once the desired time is set, wait 3-4 seconds and a beep will sound.

 

The beep sound indicates the steaming process has started. The indicator light will 

illuminate red, the timer will begin to count down, and steam will start to rise up through 

the steamer after a few moments.

• During the cooking process, check the food and adjust the cooking time if needed.

• To extend the cooking time, press the ‘+’ button to display the revised time on the display.

• To reduce the cooking time, press the ‘-’ button.

• When the set time has elapsed, a beep will sound and the steamer will automatically 

switch to ‘Keep Warm’. The display will switch back to clock mode with the ‘Keep Warm’ 

symbol in the bottom right hand corner, and the indicator light will illuminate green.

 

Setting the clock

When you turn your steamer on, the display will show the time.
e.g. 

• To set the time, press the ‘PROG and ‘0/I’ buttons simultaneously, then release. You will 

hear a beep.

• Using the ‘+’ button increase the time in 10 minute increments, and using the ‘-‘ button, 

decrease the time in 1 minute increments.

• Once you have adjusted the clock to the current time, press the ‘PROG’ button to set the time.

Delayed start timer

Use the delayed start timer function to delay the commencement of the steaming process.  

NOTE: For your safety, foods that require refrigeration should not be left sitting in the 

steamer for extended periods in ‘Delay Start’ mode.

• Press the ‘PROG’ button, and the display will flash: 

 

• Use the ‘+’ and ‘-‘ buttons to set the countdown timer to delay the time you require before 

steaming commences. (e.g. if it is 5:00pm and you want the unit to start steaming at 

7:30pm set the countdown timer for 2 hours and 30 minutes (02:30).)

• Press the ‘PROG’ button and the display will show:

 

• Using the ‘+’ or ‘-‘ buttons, set the desired time you wish to steam for.

• Press the ‘PROG’ button again – now the unit is set.

• The unit returns to the clock mode with ‘PROG’ featuring in the right hand side of the 

display, showing the countdown timer has begun.

e.g. 

• When it comes time for the unit to commence steaming, a beep will sound indicating the 

steam process has started. The indicator light will illuminate red, the timer will begin to 

count down, and steam will start to rise up through the steamer after a few moments.

• During the cooking process, check the food and adjust the cooking time if needed.

• To extend the cooking time, press the ‘+’ button. The revised time will be shown on the display.

• To reduce the cooking time, press the ‘-’ button.

• When the set time has elapsed, a beep will sound and the steamer will automatically 

switch to ‘Keep Warm’. The display will switch back to clock mode with the ‘Keep Warm’ 

symbol in the bottom right hand corner, and the indicator light will illuminate green.

Keep Warm 

When the steaming process has completed, a beep will sound and the unit will 

automatically switch to ‘Keep Warm’. 

• The display will show the time, along with the ‘Keep Warm’ symbol in the bottom right 

hand corner, and the indicator light will illuminate green.

e.g. 

• When the steamer is in ‘Keep Warm’ mode, it will steam for 2 minutes out of every 8 minutes, 

until the water runs out. After this time, a beep will sound and the steamer will switch off.

• To switch the ‘Keep Warm’ function Off, press the ‘0/I’ button.

NOTE: Food will continue to cook whilst in ‘Keep Warm’ mode, but at a very slow rate.

Water Levels

• The steamer relies on water in the water reservoir to operate. Fill the water reservoir up to 

Max on the water level window with fresh, clean water.

• When cooking food in your steamer, continuously check the water level.

• If the water level is low in the water level window, simply top up the reservoir with clean water.

• Add the extra water to the reservoir by pouring water through the spouts on the sides of 

the drip tray.

• This may need to be repeated when steaming for extended periods of time.

Guide’ section for rice to water ratios)

• Place the rice bowl into the highest steamer basket used.

• Cover the basket with the lid and set the timer.

TIP: When using multiple trays, place the rice bowl in the top steaming basket. Using the 

rice bowl in the middle or bottom baskets can block the movement of steam around the 

food in the other steamer baskets.

Turning off

• To stop the steamer at anytime, press the ‘0/I’ button.

• This will reset any programming and brings you back to the clock display.

Cleaning

Before cleaning your steamer, ensure that the power is turned off at the power outlet and the 

plug has been removed. Allow the steamer to cool down before disassembling and cleaning.

• Remove the lid, rice bowl, steamer baskets, drip tray and turbo steam-ring from the steamer base

fillets. Slice the fillet horizontally, without cutting right 

through. Open the fillet, spread with the pesto and 

“close” both sides together and fasten with toothpicks. 

2. Arrange the fillets in the base of steamer basket and 

cook for approximately 20 minutes or until cooked. 

Remove from the steamer and allow to cool slightly 

while you cook the snow peas and asparagus.

3. Place the snow peas and asparagus spears in the 

steamer basket. Allow the snow peas to cook for 4 - 5 

minutes and for asparagus 5 – 7 minutes.

4. When vegetables are ready, remove toothpicks from 

the chicken and cut into diagonal slices. Spoon juices 

collected in the juice tray over the chicken.

5. Serve with a mayonnaise into which finely chopped 

sun-dried tomatoes, finely shredded basil and a little 

more of the pesto have been stirred.
