Care and Setup Instructions:
  • Do not immerse the VitaChef heat control in water or let it come in contact with any liquid.
  • The VitaChef Steamer Skillet's handle / leg assembly, skillet, reversible steamer plate, and extension ring are completely submersible and dishwasher safe, however VitaChef recommends that you hand wash the Steamer Skillet with warm soapy water in your kitchen sink with a non-abrasive sponge or cloth. Note: Washing the skillet, reversible steamer plate, and extension ring in a dishwasher may affect the nonstick coating due to the caustic nature of dishwasher detergents.
  • When washing the skillet by hand, clean the nonstick surface with a non-metal cleaning pad. Do not use steel wool or abrasive kitchen cleaners.
  • It is not necessary to soak the skillet to remove food residue. If you choose to soak the skillet, do not soak it for more than two hours. Soaking for more than two hours may damage the nonstick finish.
  • In time, the nonstick finish may darken over the heating element. To remove this discoloration, use a commercial cleaner designed for cleaning surfaces, such as dip-it destainer. These cleaners are available at most grocery and hardware stores. For best results, follow the manufacturer's instructions, being careful that any cleaning solution coming in contact with the exterior of the appliance is wiped off.
  • After treating the skillet with a commercial cleaner, it is recommended that the cooking surface be wiped lightly with cooking oil before using. The outside finish of the skillet is easy to keep attractive and looking new. Simply wipe away spills and drips as they occur. If food should happen to burn on, it can be removed with warm, sudsy water and a cleaning pad. Rinse and wipe dry.
  • Glass Lid - Do not use lid if it is chipped or cracked. Handle lid carefully and avoid impact. The lid is dishwasher safe. Keep the lid clean. If washing by hand, do not use steel wool cleaning pads or abrasive powders that can scratch or weaken the glass. Nonabrasive pads or powders may be used if necessary. Do not scrape or gouge the glass with hard or sharp utensils.
  • Periodically check the screws on the lid handles for looseness. Retighten, if necessary. Caution: Over-tightening can result in stripping of screws or cracking of handle or lid.
  • CAUTION: Failure to follow these instructions could cause immediate breakage or breakage at a later date for no apparent reason, which may result in personal injury or property damage.

Operating Instructions:
  • Place assembled skillet on a dry, level, heat resistant surface.
  • Plan cooking methods to be used. If desired, "season" the nonstick cooking surface by rubbing lightly with cooking oil. Remove excess oil with a paper towel.
  • Insert the temperature control probe into the skillet so the two electrical pins on the skillet are fully inserted into the heat control. Connect cord to a 120VAC electrical wall outlet only.
  • When setting temperature, the temperature light will turn on. Preheat skillet. Temperature light goes off when the selected temperature has been reached (this takes approximately 5 to 10 minutes). Depends on cooking method.
  • Prepare food for cooking. Because the skillet features a nonstick finish, food may be prepared with little or no oil.
  • Place food in skillet and cook according to the Temperature Timetable (pages 9-10 of your manual). Heat should be adjusted according to personal preference and particular food being cooked. During cooking, temperature light will go on and off indicating desired temperature is being maintained.
  • For best results use heat-resistant nylon, plastic, or wooden utensils in the skillet. Do not use metal utensils as they may scratch the nonstick surface. Do not cut foods on the cooking surface.
  • Turn heat control to OFF when cooking is completed. Unplug heat control from wall outlet then from appliance. Allow skillet to cool before cleaning.
  • It is not recommended to place the unit directly under cabinets when operating as this product produces steam.
  • Caution: When the lid is placed on the skillet and the contents are steaming, it is normal for some steam to vent from the unit. Use caution when reaching for the handles when steam is venting, as contact with steam can cause burns.
  • Avoid reaching over the Steamer when operating.
  • Caution: To avoid steam burns, especially when checking foods while cooking, keep hands and face away from the steam vent. When removing the lid, be careful to lift it slowly and lift it so that the steam will rise in a direction away from your body.
  • To avoid possible scalding or injury from hot steam, lift and open lid carefully in a direction away from you. Hold lid until the steam has escaped and the hot condensed water has drained from the lid back into the steamer.
  • Steaming times will vary depending on desired doneness and food quantity, size and arrangement. The cooking times in the Steaming Guide are suggested times. You may want to lengthen/shorten cooking times to suit your taste.
  • To steam food, fill the skillet with a minimum of three cups of tap water or to the appropriate fill line. Do not exceed the level of the fill line. Take care not to get water on or near the heat control.
