how to use a Multi Cooker Steamer?
Using a steamer is very simple. In most cases, it's just a matter of following the manufacturer's instructions on how to use the steamer and how long to use it for specific foods. Here are some additional tips you can use to get the most out of your steamer:
When you steam food, let it boil for 5-10 minutes before placing the basket in the pressure cooker and putting the lid on
If your pressure cooker offers multiple pressure levels or positions, always choose the lowest one unless otherwise stated
When preparing seafood or fish, always use the recommended cooking settings to avoid overcooking food
Grease or lightly brush the basket when cooking succulents or fish to prevent ingredients from sticking to the basket
Reasons to Use a Pressure Cooker Steamer
If you use your pressure cooker a lot in the kitchen, it's always a good idea to have a steamer basket, or even a silicone one, as it will allow you to cook a variety of elevated foods instead of sitting directly on the surface of the steamer inside the pot. Like most pressure cooker models, they're also usually dishwasher safe, so you don't have to worry about over-cleaning up after meals.
This height allows for a quieter cooking environment and makes it easier for you to prepare more delicate meals. It's also great for foods that you don't want liquid in the bottom of the pan; for example, when you're making certain desserts.
