Getting to Know Your Suvie

Suvie features two cooking zones that independently refrigerate and cook your ingredients. Please be aware that some cooking functions require the reservoir to be filled with water prior to cooking. Suvie will prompt you to fill the reservoir when needed.

What’s Included?

Suvie includes two food pans that are dishwasher safe, as well as a roasting rack designed for perfectly roasted proteins and vegetables.

Available Add-Ons

Our optional accessory kit is available at store.suvie.com and includes: an egg tray, silicon oven mitt and pan grabber.


Countertop Placement

For optimal performance we recommend that you place your Suvie on a solid, flat, countertop surface that can withstand moisture. Do not install in an enclosed cabinet.

After unboxing, allow Suvie to sit upright for 24 hours before refrigerating to allow the refrigerant to settle.

  • Leave 6″ from the back
  • Leave 4″ from the left and right side
  • Leave 1″ from the top

Use in a room that is 75° F or cooler.


Quick Setup

Once setup is complete, you can begin cooking right away. Questions about setting up your Suvie? Please email us at help@suvie.com.


Filling the Water Reservoir

Suvie uses water to indirectly refrigerate and cook your ingredients with some cooking functions.

Fill ONLY WHEN PROMPTED on display with DISTILLED WATER to the fill line indicated.

FOR OPTIMAL PERFORMANCE, WE RECOMMEND ONLY USING DISTILLED WATER.

WARNING: The water in the reservoir will steam, bubble, and get hot while cooking. This is normal and expected while in operation. Do not touch the reservoir while it is in use.
