More Details


What should I be aware of before using my new Auto Power Switch Multifunctional Health Cooker for the first time?
Rinse and pat dry the inner pot before using for the first time. Grease the surface with cooking oil (except butter and lard) and let it sit overnight. Clean the inner pot thoroughly afterwards. This procedure is to be done only once. It helps prevent food from sticking.
What type of utensils shall I use when cooking with the Auto Power Switch Multifunctional Health Cooker? Can I use metal utensils?
Go for spatulas made of heat-resistant silicone, plastic or wood. Avoid using metal or sharp utensils to protect the non-stick coating.
Why can't the temperature be adjusted when using the “Slow Stew” programme?
The default temperature and time of the "Slow Stew" programme is 99℃ and hours respectively. The appliance will automatically switch power when the temperature reaches 99℃. However, time is still adjustable during operation.
Is there anything I should pay attention to when cleaning the inner pot?
You can remove stain in pot with a dry, soft cloth or sponge or use edible vinegar boiled with water.
When cooking in high heat with the Auto Power Switch Multifunctional Health Cooker, is there anything I need to know?
Make sure there is food or liquid inside the pot when using high heat or temperature.
