GUIDELINES FOR SKITTLE
A skittle is a multipurpose piece of equipment that can be used as a pressureless steamer, braising pan or griddle. The
griddle mode is ideal for cooking steaks, sandwiches, eggs, pancakes, breakfast meats and potatoes. The steam mode may
be used to cook vegetables, seafood, rice and pasta. The braising mode is used for slow moist-heat cooking of meats,
poultry and vegetables.
TO OPERATE AS A STEAMER:
Add 5 gallons (2"- 3") of water to the skittle using the spray hose.
Position steaming racks for the number of pans and product to be cooked.
Close the lid and the steam vent.
Set the thermostat at 350� Fahrenheit and allow 6-8 minutes to preheat. The skittle is ready when the heater power
light goes out.
5. When the skittle is preheated, raise the lid to the top of the steamer racks and place food pans in the racks and
close the lid. (NOTE: To retain maximum steam, do not raise the lid beyond steamer racks. The lid should
be kept in a horizontal position)
6. If steam escapes from the closed lid, open the rear vent until excess is released.
The skittle is ideal for steaming more than one type of vegetable at the same time without flavor transfer. Foods may
be steamed in perforated or solid pans. Perforated pans are normally used, particularly for vegetables, unless the
cooking liquid is retained or manufacturer's directions specify solid pans. Pans should not be filled more than 2/3 to
the top to allow steam to circulate for even cooking.
