Needed operating manual for a Westinghouse food steamer?
I have a Westinghouse food steamer and I can not find the operating manual that came along with it. Does someone know where I can go online to find something like this? Many thanks.
Is it a White-Westinghouse, or an antique? What model number, usually on the bottom.
Can I sterilise my baby's feeding equipment in a normal food steamer?
My daughter is now 6 months old - it occurred to me while I had the steamer on for dinner and at the same time, the steam steriliser for my daughter's things - can I just use the main steamer for sterilising her feeding stuff as well? (obviously not at the same time as the food!) Thanks, look forward to the answers!
Im gonna make a bullet list so its easier for you and saves you time. After all, were talking about a babies health and I want to help you as much as possible.
# I know people that swear dishwashers keep their families healthy
# steam is a GREAT way to clean and sterilize
# Depending on the steamer, there should be no problem
[a pressure cooker would probably work also]
[too much heat could melt what you mean to sterilize, just be careful!]
all in all: go for it! the worse that could happen is that something would melt. But it will deffinatly be cleaner!
NOTE: Pressure cookers are guarenteed to sterilize due to the pressure. It kills all bacteria and germs at a certain pressure.
Hobbyists that grown their own mushrooms use pressure cookers before starting their mushrooms because the pressure cooker kills EVERYTHING and ANYTHING that could it.
A cookbook on how to steam food in a steamer??
I know this sounds dumb, but I got a food steamer for Christmas and I'm not really sure what to do with it. I would love to steam veggies and fish and the like in it, but I don't exactly know how. There are general guidlines in the manual, but what I really want is a steamed foods cookbook. Does anyone know where I can find one?
Steamers are trial and error, mostly. Especially with grains. Just follow the guidelines and add whatever seasonings you normally like to use. There's no real cooking or chemistry involved. Steaming meats takes alot longer than baking or broiling them, so I'd advise against that. Fish is done when it flakes easily, there's no specific time. It depends on how thick the fish is and how hot your steamer gets. Fish takes about 15-20 minutes in my steamer usuaully, depending on how often I open it to season or whatever. If you absolutely absolutely have to have a cookbook, try barnesandnoble.com, they have a good assortment of cookbooks.
Do you have a food steamer and use it a lot?
Thinking about buying one of those electronic multi stack food steamers and wondering if I'll use it for most meals or just stick it in the cupboard like some other useless electronic gadgets. Like to hear if people think they're a great idea.
I love to steam but I didn't buy anything fancy. For less than $10, I bought a metal collapsable steamer basket (most grocery stores carry them in their cooking gadget/supplies aisle). You can use it in one of your regular pots.
With an inch of water on the bottom of a pot, and a steamer basket on top, throw in your favorite chopped veggies (For example, one of the following: green beans, asparagus, broccoli, chunks of squash), set your stove on medium high and in 10-20 minutes they are ready. Just make sure to check the water level doesn't run out after about 15 minutes.
You'll figure out what works for you after a few tries.
The basket takes up no space in the cabinet either. Just store it in one of your pots when it's clean & dry.
Anybody who has a electric food steamer can answer this question?
Will it destroy your electric food steamer if you forgot to put water in the bottom and have it turned on to steam for 20 minutes?
maybe not it could have an automatic cut off feature try reading the instruction leaflets that came with it if you still have them-does it still work when you have tried it since then?
