Caring for your Eurolux Cookware
Before first use
Clean the cookware with hot water and a little dishwashing detergent, dry it thoroughly and oil it with a little cooking oil.
The cookware is now ready to use.
Note for ceramic-glass cooktops:
Always check for remains of dirt on the pan or pot base or on the ceramic-glass cooktop! Even the smallest salt or pepper grains can scratch the ceramic-glass cooktop as well as the cookware base when you're sliding the cookware back and forth.
Lift your pan instead of sliding it, the handles are designed for this purpose.
Add some oil or shortening to your pre-heated pan, then add the food for frying. Make sure to be careful of the frying temperature and avoid overheating. Burnt food and oils may become unhealthy and bitter in flavour.
Please be aware that some oils should not be used for high temperature frying, as they are not heat stable enough. Ideal frying temperature is considered to be between 190-220°C. When using low temperature cooking oils such as butter, margarine and olive oil, be sure to maintain a lower cooking temperature.
Please also, be aware that high-sugar marinades and vegetables such as red capsicum can burn very easily and are best fried with oil at a medium temperature.
Use warm water, a little dishwashing detergent and a normal washing brush to clean the cookware. Make sure to wash off all residues, as these may build up over time and may reduce the non-stick properties. Do not leave food overnight in frying or baking cookware.
Please avoid abrasive cleaners!
Traces of use may become visible over time however, this will not affect the cooking characteristics.
General Tips and Tricks
Ensure you prepare all ingredients before you start cooking to make the cooking process easier and faster.
Heating the cookware:
Do not overheat the oil in the cookware (if the oil begins to smoke it is already too hot), as this will destroy the oil and will create a bitter taste.
Quick-fry meat, vegetables or seafood in a hot wok. Do not overload the wok. Overloading will drop the temperature in your wok and the meat will stew.
To reduce or take the smell of seafood away from your hands, rub half a lemon into each hand and wash with cold water and soap.
All recipes are guidelines only and may vary from time to time, depending on your ingredients, the portion-size of your food, the heat distribution from stove to pan or other non-controllable/variable circumstances.
Marinate your meat for one to two hours with herbs or mustards before roasting to add great flavour. When roasting meat, keep your oven temperature below 190°C. This will cook the meat more evenly and ensure a nice, moist roasting—the roast won’t dry out. You will also find the oven less dirty due to no fat bursts or explosions, which happens when roasting above 190°C.
STEAMING: Healthy and Nutritious - Rich in Vitamins
A healthy life is a result of a natural balanced diet, containing the entire natural nutrients that are available in our daily foods. To maintain these nutrients, food should be treated so that its natural fluids and fats are preserved. Through steaming, vitamins, proteins, and mineral salts are kept in their natural form.
Cooking with steam is the most effective way of preparing vegetables, fruit, fish or meat without salt - hence low on water and fat. When steaming, the use of salt is unnecessary as all foods keep its typical flavour (the amount of salt a person needs per day is less then 5 grams).
Most foods contain sufficient salt. People with a high blood pressure, should go without salt. Better still, season with fresh herbs and spices.
While steaming, the food is not directly in contact with the liquid but is gently cooked by the produced steam. This causes natural fluids to rise with the steam into the top of the lid and drop back onto the food. Due to this circulation process the food is always cooked below the boiling point.
The successful outcome of each dish is dependent upon the character of the recipe, the freshness of the food and the way it is prepared. This will maintain the valuable substances in fruit, vegetables, meat and fish, the consistency and colour, the vitamins and the natural taste. Nothing can better fulfil your desires than your new Steamer Set.
Depending on the steaming time, vegetables will be "al dente" or tender. Meat and fish tender and juicy.
The given steaming times are guidelines and can be varied to suit you personal tastes.
Valuable Information about Vitamins
Vitamins are essential for the metabolism and vitally necessary for the process within our body; but they have no nutritional value. These are the biocatalysts, but without them some chemical processes cannot occur in the cells. They are not synthesised by our body, but are effective in slight amounts.
There is a difference between water-soluble vitamins, C, P, B, H, and the fat-soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K. Some of these vitamins, for instance A and C, are especially sensitive and are destroyed by heat, light or cooking salt.
Meat and sausages, eggs and fish principally contain protein and vitamin B; covering 33% of our required protein from animal sources.
Meat contains 20 to 30% invisible fat (saturated fat acids). The nutritional value of all meats is identical. Sausages contain less recommendable proteins as they include approximately 40% fat (saturated fat acids) compared to 20% protein.
Fish contains approximately 20% protein, but on average only 3% fat; its calorie content is less than meat.
Eggs are very rich as the egg yoke contains the vitamins A, D and E; the protein of the egg white possesses the best nutritional value.
Also milk and cheese products possess a good nutritional value. They also contain vitamin A, D, E, and K and calcium in large quantities.
Butter with 84% and cooking oil with approximately 100% are practically pure fat. They are necessary energy sources. Vegetable fat is healthier as it contains less harmful unsaturated fat acids.
Grain products and potatoes offer the best proportions. They are rich in carbohydrates and vegetable protein. Peas and beans contain 23% protein and 60% carbohydrates. They are higher in protein than meat but their nutritional value is lower. Because of their husk they are not easy to digest.
Fresh fruit and vegetables are rich in carbohydrates, liquid, vitamins and minerals. All in all they produce less energy calories but are rich in roughage.
Vitamins, minerals and trace elements are essential for the human body. As our body does not produce them, we have to absorb them through our food. Various foods provide enough vitamins and minerals in different quantities.
- Water and Salt are necessary for our health.
- When just cooked in water, food is deprived of its goodness and the valuable elements are washed away.
- All vitamins are preserved when steaming without the addition of water and salt.
The following overview explains which types of food contain the most important vitamins and their function in the body.
- Vitamin A: Liver, eel, margarine, milk and milk products, fruit and vegetables deliver the preliminary stage of vitamin A, the carotene. Vitamin A is a genuine beauty vitamin: It stimulates growth and renews the skin cells, protects skin and the moist internal surfaces of the body against dryness and damage, which would permit invasion by infections. Vitamin A is found in foods from animal sources only. It occurs in vegetables and fruit (mango) as Beta-Carotene. Beta-carotene is also called Provitamin A. It is transformed by the human organism into Vitamin A. Beta-carotene is only found in plants and prevents aggressive oxygen compounds in the body.
- Vitamin D: Milk, meat and meat products, eggs, fish, margarine and butter. Vitamin D is called the "sunshine vitamin" as it is formed in the body by the action of sunlight. It is found, for instance, in fish and is essential for the absorption of calcium and phosphorus for the formation of bones. It is also responsible for growth, development and preservation of healthy teeth, strong bones, tendons and ligaments.
- Vitamin E: Vegetable oil, margarine, butter, milk, cheese, grain products and vegetables. Vitamin E acts as the "police force" for the cells and is found in all vegetable oils. It protects the red blood cells and the sensitive fat acids in particular the unsaturated (those, for instance, that are important for the cell membranes) against attack from infection.
- Vitamin B1: Meat (in particular pork), offal, potatoes, grain products, milk and milk products.
- Vitamin B2: Milk and milk products, meat, grain products and potatoes. B Vitamins occur in natural products only as vitamin-complex. They assist with the metabolism-acceleration (Enzyme), new production of fresh skin, hair and nail cells. In addition, the function of muscles and the digestive system is dependent upon a sufficient supply of B Vitamins. B1 is the nerve vitamin (e.g. in bananas and wheat germs); B6 (e.g. in germs and walnuts) stimulates the protein development - good for muscles.
- Vitamin C: Fruit, (in particular citrus and tropical fruits), vegetables, potatoes, grain products. Vitamin C is the absolute super star under the vitamins (e.g. capsicum, citrus fruit). It has two important tasks:
It protects and strengthens the immune system and is the worst enemy of all illnesses.
It stabilises the psyche in that it stimulates the production of hormones and nerve stimulation substances, over which our feelings are conveyed. In addition it strengthens the connective tissue.
- Calcium: Milk and milk products.
- Iron: Meat, meat products (in particular liver), grain products, fruit, fruit juice, vegetables and potatoes.
The given amounts and steaming times are guidelines only. The times remain the same even when smaller amounts of food are used.
The steaming time for the upper steamer insert is longer. Lay larger food pieces and food with a longer steaming time in the lower steamer insert. First cook food with longer steaming times and then add the upper steamer insert with food that requires a shorter steaming time.
Steaming times for fruit and vegetables
