The Gagg Combi has been installed for a month and I want to try something to make sure the steam function, the drain, the probe, the convection etc. work well. Any simple ideas that are vegetarian?

Buy some frozen raw shrimp, defrost them, shake with a little bit of old bay, and within minutes you will be a pretty happy camper if the steamer is working. Another option is corn on the cob - we take off the leaves and the silk and steam it plain . To test the probe, I would go with salmon. You can try a honey mustard glaze, or make a dipping sauce and just steam it plain with a little salt and pepper. I usually set the temp a little below the correct temp to allow me time to open it and get it out before it overcooks. Since 135 is done, I would set it around 130. When it beeps, watch it for a few seconds and see how fast the temp is climbing, that will let you next time whether you need a bigger cushion ( lower setting ).
