It's an 8-quart stock pot with steamer and pasta cooking inserts. Aside from making pasta and steaming foods, you can use it to make stews, soups, pasta sauce, chili, etc.

From the looks of it, it seems pretty standard cookware and can be used exactly as Andy stated.

Just use it as you would any good stock pot or large steamer.

What cooking experience do you have? What kinds of things do you make?

It doesn't sound like recipes need to be tailored to this particular pot.

It might help if you don't think of it as a "multi cooker" -- that's just marketing gobblygook.

What you have is a standard stockpot with inserts. No special recipes needed.

What it's best used for, IMO, is soups and stews.

Make some soup!! Chili! Beef stew! Coc au vin!

Maybe this video will help get you going.



You could also use it to cook pasta, (you knew that already) but at the same time steam some seasoned salmon fillets. Make a sauce and have dinner ready in no time.

Try steaming some fresh tamales or pot stickers for appetizers.

Maybe I need a new toy
