How long does food need to cook?

Babycook steam cooks foods very quickly and takes between 5 and 15 minutes depending on the amount of water in the heating reservoir. When steaming foods with high water content, such as string beans, zucchini, apples and pears, Babycook runs for approximately 10 minutes with 2 measures of water. When steaming foods with low water content, such as potatoes, carrots, peas, red meat and poultry, Babycook Pro takes approximately 15 minutes with 3 measures of water. When reheating foods, cook with 1 measure of water (about 5 minutes).


Water level 1: Approximately 5 minutes

Water level 2: Approximately 10 minutes

Water level 3: Approximately 15 minutes


*Babycook will never dry boil your food. The steam cycle will only continue as long as there is water in the reservoir. If after a steam cycle is completed there is water remaining in your reservoir, it may be time to descale your machine (to remove the limescale build-up in your reservoir, which is caused by minerals found naturally in water).
