Waterless cookware is made of heavy-gauge stainless steel with more than one ply. An inner core of aluminium is used for even heat distribution. Even heat distribution, plus a lid heavy enough to hold in steam are key elements to enable waterless cooking. Chef's Secret Thermal Control Waterless Cookware has the added feature of a thermometer built into the knob, for precise temperature control.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Prepare food for cooking by washing, peeling, cutting, slicing or dicing as you would for cooking in any other type of cookware.

  2. 2

    Choose a pan or pot of proper size for the amount of food to cook. Fill pan half to two-thirds full of the food item and place it on the stove.

  3. 3

    Add 2 to 3 tbsp of water to begin the cooking process. A small amount of water begins the steaming process until your food item releases its own juices and continues the steam cooking process in your waterless cookware.

  4. 4

    Place a lid on the pot or pan. Open the steam control vent. Turn the stove burner to high.

  5. 5

    Close the steam control vent once the steam escapes freely. Turn down the heat. Using the temperature gauge, make certain the temperature stays between low and medium.

  6. 6

    Consult the Chef's Secret Thermal Control Waterless Cookware cooking guide for cooking times of a specific food.

  7. 7

    Turn off the heat once the food has cooked for the specified time. Open the steam control vent; after the steam escapes, remove the lid.

Tips and warnings

  • If the lid spins when turned, the cooking temperature is correct. If it feels locked, the temperature is too low.
  • Do not open the lid during cooking.
  • Do not attempt to prepare dehydrated foods, such as rice, dried beans and pasta, in waterless cookware.
