Is the pot made from stainless steel? No, there is no stainless steel pot available for the MD 1000 "MeinHans". All programs and electronic settings are adapted to the specific features of the related inner pot. If the material of the pot would be changed, the perfect harmonisation (like e. g. exact temperatures of the programs) is no longer guaranteed. In case you are concerned about the non-stick coating of the pot, please note that the pot has passed through detailed tests by TÜV/GS as well as for LFGB (Food and Feed Code). Both, inner pot and coating are BPA-free.
How does the sous-vide function work with this appliance? To what extent can I adjust temperature and cooking time? For sous-vide cooking, (low temperature cooking of vacuum-sealed food in a water bath) you first vacuum-seal the food and then cook it at low temperature in a water bath in the MD 1000 (lid closed / without steam pressure). For this purpose, "MeinHans" has a special "Sous Vide" function. This function offers 3 different pre-settings for time and temperature. Furthermore, the time can be set manually from 10 minutes up to 24 hours (adjustable in steps of 10 minutes). The temperature can also be adjusted manually from 40 °C to 95 °C (in 1 degree steps) according to need.
Is the inner pot of the appliance BPA-free and free of harmful substances? The pot has passed through detailed tests by TÜV/GS as well as for LFGB (Food and Feed Code). It is free from BPA and other harmful substances.
What is the volume of the pot? Can I e.g. put a whole chicken in there for making broth? The non-stick coated cooking pot (5.5 l volume) can be filled with a maximum filling quantity of 4 liters. For safety reasons, this quantity must not be exceeded. A chicken of up to 1.5 kg can be prepared in the pot. This will take about 25 minutes (with the program "Dampfdruck 2").
The status bars keep moving continuously. What can I do? As long as the program is heating up the temperature bars will keep moving. When the chosen temperature is reached inside the cooker, the program will start running and the blue bars are permanently lit. After this, the remaining runtime will be counted down by the minute (See description in the instruction manual ready for download here on our website). We recommend to read the manual carefully. It also contains application examples that will make it easier to operate the appliance.
While releasing steam, hot liquid is spouting out of the valve, getting everything dirty. What can I do? Frothing of e. g. broth is a normal process which can be explained as follows: fat and protein in the food cause liquid to froth - especially when temperature and/or pressure changes occur. When using a smaller volume the effect is not as strong and the froth will not reach the valve. However for a larger volume (like a whole chicken for example), hot broth may froth from the valve. Like with any other pressure cooker (and thus also with "MeinHans" the broth should be left in the unopened steam cooker for about 30 minutes after cooking in order to let the pressure decrease inside the pot.
