You can not underestimate how delicious and healthy steamed food is
This for 90 percent of people is all you would ever need as far as steamers go. There are no fancy gimmicks. You place your food in the stackable bowls. Fill the bottom up to the line with water and turn the timer to your chosen amount. Then all you have to do is pour yourself a drink while it works its delicious magic. Brilliant for steaming prepared veggies to go alongside a roast or layering fish and rice. The world is totally your own!
Amazing steamer! Just perfect
Cannot fault this steamer at all. Had read comments about it being flimsy and thin.... But honestly I think it's fab. Lots of room for plenty of veg, I managed to cook enough veg for 4 large meals and the variety of items all cooked evenly and pretty fast. It's very easy to use and clean, I've used it everyday since I've had it. There is a cooking time guide in the instructions, but, if like me, you pack in a wide range of vegetables it's trial an error on cooking times, and obviously you cook the harder veg like carrots and sprouts at the bottom. I can't find fault with this steamer, yes it's plastic,.... But to those of who you complained about it not being hugely robust.... You should have purchased one twice the price! Can't understand people who buy cheaper items then complain!!!! Money well spent in my opinion..... And so what if it doesn't last 10 years...... It's £21 for heavens sake!! Definitely worth a purchase. I'm totally happy with the steamer. It does exactly what it's meant to do and in good time, and you'll be surprised just how much you can fit in it. Many thanks from Susan
I'm so happy with this! Never used a steamer before only cooked veg on a hob. Nice knowing it's not gonna boil over and with the timer automatically turns itself off. Just started to wean my baby so steaming is better that boiling all the goodness out. I'd just use for veg so perfect size for family of four. Is on the smaller size but is 7 litres. Fine for me!

Better than others I've had.
Very easy to use. Fill, plug in and turn on. Very sturdy construction. Easy to refill if needed just watch out for the drip tray overfilling if you do. However it is very simple to empty during cooking if you take care. These steamers do cook rice effectively IF you follow the instructions. I tend to add extra time. The steam seems to permeate effectively. Like all cooking appliances they work best when they are up to operating temperature. Add a few extra minutes if you start from cold. Some people say the baskets are not crystal clear as shown in the graphics, but to be fair, it's not a problem. The plastic is slightly opaque but I find it more flexible and less prone to breaking, more durable and I think actually more heat insulating than the more brittle clear plastic. This model seems NOT to have those fiddly removable bases to the baskets. What a relief! Those things broke or came loose too easily especially when removing food. These baskets are ONE PIECE and make for easier serving and cleaning. Flavours. Its a steamer. Some flavours are bound to mix, just use common sense and some strategically placed tin foil. This model seems much more usable than previous ones. Its a simple design and the light grey to white appearance is clean and neutral. The timer is mechanical for upto an hour. Don't wind it forward to switch it off, just unplug it and wait for it to ping or clean it and put it away still ticking. Its always safer to do that anyway. The cable is an appropriate length at 1m. I haven't used it for long enough to assess the durability of painted on numbers on the timer. I'd expect them to wear with excessive cleaning but they seem pretty good to me.
Very good product - recommended without reservation.
Really simple to use. Day after receipt, steamed salmon in the bottom level with two different veggies on each of the other layers and at the end of the cooking time the results were really wonderful - and reminded me of how vegetables ought to taste but too often don't! Since then used for more dinners than not, although not got round to trying other main components (chicken or whatever) apart from the salmon, or (new) potatoes either yet.. But success with all the veggies tried thus far - carrots, mange tout, French beans, sugar snaps, sweetheart cabbage, cauliflower and calabrese, all crisp and tasty. The instruction leaflet is a model of how these things should be too - written by someone for whom English is a first language and well thought out. Would heartily recommend.
Healthy cooking alternative
I bought this to use for steaming rice, fish and vegetables. I have used it a few times and it works perfectly. It is very easy to clean. I would not wash the parts in the dishwasher but I have just washed them in soapy water in the sink instead. It first appeared very lightweight and flimsy but it is not at all. It works well and the 60 minute timer is clear to read. The machine sits neatly on the counter top but I had to move it to the other side of the kitchen due to the amount of steam it produces. The three baskets are useful as you can put potatoes in one, fish in the other as well as rice or vegetables. Do be aware that some liquid may run into the basket below so if you are steaming fish it would be best to use the bottom basket for that. The food in the bottom basket will also cook quicker because it is closer to the element. It is also easy to fill and refill. I will get the most use out of it around Christmas time and the size is ideal for a family of 3 or 4. It is handy then to have the 4 rings on the stove free for making other food. I bought it mainly for helping me make healthier meals and steaming food is a good healthy option rather than frying. I haven't had it long so I will update this review in the future.

Clean, fairly compact and quick and easy to use. I'm very pleased with this purchase. One thing of note is that each of the 3 containers has a number printed on it and unless you want drips all over the place, number 1 must be put on over the water. I did'nt realise this and ended up with drips all over the place but it was my mistake. It's very handy to be able to top up the water or pour it in via the spouts at the side.
A geat buy
I had a prestige steamer for many years, loved it's spaciousness but it did send drips all over the worktop and filled the kitchen with steam. This may not hold quite as much in volume but three baskets hold enough for four-five adults and no spillage and no excess of steam in the kitchen.The timer pings when cooking is done and a clever little drip tray catches enough hot water to make gravy. There is a lip to top up if needed but you need a small jug to do so. Easy to clean and nothing falls through the holes in the baskets. It comes with a booklet giving steaming time which is very helpful. An excellent buy.
One pot for all veg!
I like a small amount of lots of veg and this steamer is just perfect for the job! I start off with carrots and just add to the containers as cooking time allows. Frozen or fresh all vegetables come out perfectly cooked and stay in shape without mushing down. There is a drip tray which enables you to dish up veg without trailing water drops all over the worktop. Chicken is supposed to be moister if it is steamed so I am going to have a go at steaming it and them a quick go on the George Forman for some lines on it! Don't forget Steamed pudding, always a winner.
