How it Works

  • STEP 1: Prep your ingredients according to your recipe


  • STEP 2:  Fill the CanCooker - Spray interior of CanCooker with non-stick spray.  Put vegetables in first, then meat, fish or seafood.  Seasoning and liquid goes in last. Add at least 12 oz and no more than 36 oz. of any liquid   - water, broth, beer, soda or juice.  Put on the lid and latch.


  • STEP 3:  Bring the CanCooker to a steam on low to medium / low heat - Cook on any heat source, including stovetop, grill, camp stove, campfire and Seth McGinn's Multi-Fuel Portable Cooktop. Reduce heat when you see steam coming from the vent hole.


  • STEP 4:  Steam according to your recipe - The CanCooker will be HOT – be sure to use oven mitts when taking the CanCooker off the heat source.  Let it sit for 5 minutes.  Use oven mitts when removing the lid and watch out for any remaining steam.
