PREPARATION BEFORE COOKING

Measuring the ingredients - Max capacity of the bowl

•The measurement markings on the inside of the bowl are given in liters and cups, these are used for measuring the amount of water when cooking rice. 
•The plastic measuring cup provided with your appliance is for measuring rice and not water. 1 level measuring cup of rice weighs about 160 g. 
•Users may reduce or increase water according to types of rice and their preference of taste. 
•As the voltage varies in different areas, slight spillover of rice and water is a normal phenomenon. 
•The maximum quantity of water + rice should not exceed the highest mark inside the bowl.

Never add ingredients or water higher than the highest level mark.

When cooking rice

•Before cooking, measure the rice with measuring cup and rinse the rice. 
•Put the rinsed rice into the bowl and fill it with water to the corresponding water level (The measurements in cups). 
•The water quantity can be adjusted depending on your taste.

When steam cooking

•The quantity of water must be appropriate and always be lower than the steam basket bottom. 
•Exceeding this level may cause overflows during use. 
•Place the steam basket onto the bowl – fig.5. 
•Add the ingredients in the basket.

FOR ALL FUNCTIONS

•Carefully wipe the outside of the bowl (especially the bottom). Make sure that there are no foreign residues or liquid underneath the bowl and on the heating element – fig.6. 
•Place the bowl into the appliance, making sure that it is correctly positioned – fig.7. 
•Make sure that the steam shield is correctly in position. 
•Close the lid in place with a “click” sound. 
•Plug the power cord into the socket on the base and then plug the other end of the power cord into the power outlet. 
•Do not switch on the appliance until all the above stages have been completed.

Never place your hand on the steam vent during cooking, as there is a danger of burns – fig.11. 
If you wish to change the selected cooking menu because of an error, press “KEEP WARM/CANCEL” key and re-choose the menu you want. Only use the inner bowl provided with the appliance. 
Do not pour water or put ingredients in the appliance without the bowl inside. 
Never use reheat or keep warm menu to defrost food.

COOKING RICE TABLES

•The table below gives a guide to cook different types of rice. For best results, we recommend using ordinary rice rather than ‘easy cook’ type of rice which tends to give a stickier rice and may adhere to the base. With other types of rice, such as brown or wild rice, the quantities of water need adjustment, check the tables below. 
•To cook 1 cup of white rice (serves 2 small or 1 large portion), use 1 measuring cup of white rice and then add one and a half measuring cup of water. With some types of rice it is normal for a little rice to stick on the base when cooking 1 cup of rice. To cook other quantities of white rice, refer to cooking guide below.

•The maximum quantity of water + rice should not exceed the highest mark inside the bowl – fig.8. Depending on the type of rice, quantities of water may need adjustment. See the table below.

SOME RECOMMENDATIONS FOR BEST RESULTS WHEN COOKING RICE

•Measure the rice and rinse it thoroughly under running water in a sieve for 2 minutes (except for risotto rice which should not be rinsed). Then place the rice in the bowl together with the corresponding quantity of water. 
•Make sure that the rice is well distributed around the whole surface of the bowl, in order to allow even cooking. 
•Add salt to your personal taste if required. 
•Water may be substituted for stock. If using stock, there is the risk of rice browning a bit on the bottom of the pan. 
•Do not open the lid during cooking as steam will escape and this will affect the cooking time and the taste. 
•When the rice is ready, the “Keep Warm” indicator light will turn on, stir the rice and then leave it in the multicooker T-fal RK705851 10-In-1 for a few minutes longer in order to get perfect rice with separate grains.

CHOICE OF INGREDIENTS FOR YOGURT

Milk 
What milk should you use? 
•All our recipes (unless otherwise stated) are prepared using cow’s milk. You can use plant milk such as soy milk for example as well as sheep or goat’s milk but, in this case, the firmness of the yogurt may vary depending on the milk used. Raw milk or long-life milks and all the milks described below are suitable for your appliance: 
•Long-life sterilized milk: UHT whole milk results in firmer yogurt. Using semi-skimmed milk will result in less firm yogurt. However, you can use semi-skimmed milk and add one or two tablespoons of powdered milk. 
•Pasteurized milk: this milk gives a more creamy yogurt with a little bit of skin on the top. 
•Raw milk (farm milk): this must be boiled. It is also recommended to let it boil for a long time. It would be dangerous to use this milk without boiling it. You must then leave it to cool before using it in your appliance. Culturing using yogurt prepared with raw milk is not recommended. 
•Powdered milk: using powdered milk will result in very creamy yogurt. Follow the instructions on the manufacturer’s box

Choose a whole milk, preferably long-life UHT. Raw (fresh) or unpasteurized milk must be boiled then cooled and needs the skin removing.

The ferment

For yogurt

This is made either from:

•One shop-bought natural yogurt with the longest expiration date possible; your yogurt will therefore contain more active ferment for a firmer yogurt. 
•From a freeze-dried ferment. In this case, follow the activation time specified on the ferment instructions. You can find these ferments in supermarkets, pharmacies and in certain health product stores. 
•From one of your recently prepared yogurt – this must be natural and recently prepared. This is called culturing. After five culturing processes, the used yogurt loses active ferments and therefore risks giving a less firm consistency. You then need to start again using a store bought yogurt or freeze-dried ferment.

If you have boiled the milk, wait until it has reached room temperature before adding the ferment. 
Too high a heat may destroy the properties of your ferment.

Fermentation time

•Your yogurt will need between 6 and 12 hours of fermentation, depending on the basic ingredients and the result you want to achieve. 

•Once the yogurt cooking process is finished, the yogurt should be placed in a refrigerator for at least 4 hours and it can be kept max 7 days in refrigerator.

“BAKING” FUNCTION 

•Press “Menu” key to select function “Baking”. The screen displays “--”, the light of “Start” flickers, then press “Start” key. The multicooker T-fal RK705851 10-In-1 enters into “Baking” cooking status. The light of “Start” lights up and the LED screen displays the remaining time. 
•The default cooking time is 35 minutes adjustable from minimum 20 minutes to 4 hours. Pressing down on the +/- key will allow you to increase or decrease the time. •The delayed start function is not available for “Baking” function.
