The perfect stir-fry requires high heat and only a small amount of oil. Start by cooking the meat first (or skip ahead if making a vegetarian stir-fry), until it starts to caramelize and remove to a plate (it doesn’t have to be completely done at this point). Then, add your vegetables, the longercooking ones first, and progressively adding the quicker cooking ones. Finally, return the meat to the pan and cook until done. Recipe Suggestion: Teriyaki chicken and vegetable stir-fry
The sauce mode provides enough heat and cooking time to bring out the flavor of onions and other aromatics that form the base of many great sauces. For extended saucemaking, some chefs opt to transition to the Simmer mode after combining ingredients under the Sauce mode. Recipe Suggestion: Homemade Marinara Sauce.
Simmering is all about cooking low and slow. This setting is perfect for when you need time to bring out the flavor of your ingredients or to tenderize tougher cuts of meat in a stew. Recipe Suggestion: Beef Chili.
Steaming is a quick and healthy way to cook. When using the steam mode, add 2.5 cm of water to the pan before adding your ingredients, then use the steam mode to hold the Omni Cooker at the perfect even steaming temperature. Recipe Suggestion: Steamed Broccoli with Olive Oil, Garlic and Lemon.
"i. First, rinse the rice using enough water, then pour out the water immediately. Scrub and rinse the rice repeatedly with water until the water becomes reasonably clear.
ii. For effortless rice, simply use a 1:1.3 weight ratio of Rice:Water.
iii. To make the operation easier with reference to the marking scale (see drawing in description of parts list). Simply use a cup to measure the rice (1 cup = 180 ml rice). A minimum of 2 cups (= 360 ml rice) must be used.
iv. Level the surface of the rice in the pan and fill or pour out water on a flat surface according the cup scale inside the pan. Example, when 4 cups (720 ml) of rice are in the pan, the water level should meet the mark 4 cup.
v. Select the function White Rice or Brown Rice depending on the choice of rice.
vi. Note: Other kinds of rice (short grain rice, wild rice, etc.) can also be cooked in your Omni Cooker. You can vary the default rice cooking times accordingly (See: Programmed Operation above)"
Select this mode to cook all other grains, such as quinoa or oats. Consult the grains packaging for correct Grain: Water ratio.
When cooking soup, it’s important not to overcook your ingredients on high heat. That’s where soup mode comes in, and does the work for you by perfectly regulating the heat for an aromatic, flavorful soup making experience.
This mode generates high heat required for searing and sautiéng. Add a small amount of oil to the pan before starting, and when the “preheat” indicator dims, you’ll know it’s at the perfect temperature to get deep-brown searing and caramelization.
