To cook potatoes with a Cuisinart multi-cooker, first consult the manual that came with the unit. In addition to steaming potatoes, a multi-cooker can be used to prepare many different recipes that include potatoes as an ingredient.
The Cuisinart brand multi-cooker model comes with a usage manual that provides detailed instructions, including important safeguards. The manual explains how to slow cook, brown, steam and more. Specific slow cooking guidelines are provided, helping one determine what setting to use to prepare soups, casseroles, stews, and other recipes.
Steaming vegetables is a simple and healthy way to cook potatoes with a Cuisinart multi-cooker. Check the manual for detailed instructions. Typically, cut a pound of new or gold potatoes in half, and then steam the potatoes in the cooker with 4 cups of water for 15 to 20 minutes. To slow cook potatoes and other root vegetables, cut them into small pieces no larger than 2 inches in thickness. This ensures that the potatoes cook completely.
The manual may provide potato-based recipes, such as sautéed red potatoes. In addition, one can search the Cuisinart website for other recipes that use potatoes. Find step-by-step instructions for a number of multi-cooker recipes here, including soups and stews, which explain how to prepare and use potatoes as an ingredient.
