Basically, the way it works is that you use the top basket to steam vegetables and other items like broccoli or other items that would cook in the same amount of time.

Here are some full meals you can make in a coffee pot:

1.) Salmon, Couscous, and Broccoli

Step 1.) Put some chopped broccoli into the basket so it’s halfway full. Fill up the coffee maker’s reservoir with as much water as it takes. Run the coffee maker until there’s about half of the water left in the reservoir the turn your coffee maker off.

Step 2.) Dump out the water in your pot and add some couscous.

Step 3.) Mix your veggies around with a fork in the basket to make sure that everything is steaming evenly. Restart the coffee maker and let it finish its cycle.
