Works well but be careful.
It is easy to use and works very well. My only criticism is the quality of the plastic used which is thin and brittle. As I only use one of two trays, having three gives me more security that it will serve my needs for some time but I would have preferred a stronger more resilient plastic for the trays.
As am on my own and like fresh vegetables, I find this extremely useful, efficient, easy to clean and do not have to watch over it. Just load with fresh ingredients, set the timer and that is all that is required. Very quick also. Really glad I gave it a try as have never used/owned one before.
Perfect for Small Families
These are very simple to use - chuck water in the bottom, put ingredients in the baskets, add lid, switch on. The only inconvenience is in cleaning the inside, as you need to be careful not to get the exterior wet, but in all, having perfectly steamed food that you can leave to get on with it (halve or quarter potatoes & sweet potatoes, leave carrots whole and in their skins - they'll peel off afterwards, as does pumpkin or squash) without needing multiple pans is worth it. You can easily cook enough vegetables, steam bao buns or dumplings (line the basket with parchment or a clean cloth) for four people in this, - the only things that need to be cooked in direct heat are, in my opinion, leafy greens. And you can make the best roast potatoes this way, as they aren't wet when placed in the hot fat after part cooking. You need to use a clean teatowel to lift the baskets up - and don't have it cooking directly underneath a wall cabinet, as they really don't like steam on a long term basis, but if you put it on a table, you've got the extra space on the hob to deal with anything else you want and the benefit of not having to think about it beyond putting in enough water and setting the dial (and it's simple to reheat, just switch it on again for another 10 mins).

I love this! My old one was the same style but stainless steel. It started rusting and fell to bits after about a year. This one is much sturdier, and being silicone it isn’t going to rust! Works really well, both in a pot, or in my electric multi cooker. Highly recommended.
So nice to not burn my fingers when removing the steam tray
Joseph makes excellent kitchen products and this is just one more example. I have this style where the plastic handle makes it so easy to remove no matter how hot and I also have the completely plastic model which is also excellent
Superb steamer basket
This steamer is a vast improvement on my former metal basket which was difficult to clean and tended to discolour. It is sturdily built and easily lifts out of the pan at the ed of cooking leaving the food easy to serve and tasting very fresh. I had seen in some months ago in John Lewis but felt it was a little expensive so was most pleased to see it on Amazon at a very competitive price

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.
