All of our Tovala Meals have barcodes on their sleeves. All you have to do is scan a meal's barcode and your Steam Oven knows how to cook it for you! Below are helpful tips for using the barcode scanner.
Where is the barcode scanner?
Your barcode scanner is on the bottom of your Tovala's control panel, pointed downwards.
When you place anything below the barcode reader, it should light up red and attempt to read any barcodes in the red light.
How to scan
To scan your barcode, hold it 2-3 inches below the control panel and a red light will appear. If the red light doesn’t appear, press the control knob in to wake up the scanner. Your Steam Oven will beep when your barcode scans.

Cooking multiple meals at once
You can cook two of the same Tovala Meals at once (for example, a Chicken Tagine and a Chicken Tagine, but not one Chicken Tagine and one Miso-Glazed Salmon).
If your Tovala Meal is only one tray, then you can cook up to four at one time.
Just scan once
You only need to scan a Tovala Meal’s barcode once, even if you're putting in multiple of the same meal into your Steam Oven.
Press in the control knob!
If your barcode scanner doesn't turn on automatically, push the control knob in once or twice to wake up it up. The red light for scanning will then appear.
