There are three of us. Me, my wife and her sister who moved in when her husband passed away. Needless to say we all have different tastes. I have been wanting to get a different steamer. I had been looking for the Richard Simmons model but more i read about it the more I did not want it. I did see this steamer but could not find any reviews which concerned me on the price. Well, wife says she would get it for me as an anniversary gift so I could not turn it down.
The only downside is that it is made in China.
I used it tonight for the first time. Sweet potatoes in the back with broccoli and asparagus up front. I set potatoes to 40 minutes rather than the programmed 35. I set veggies to 7 rather than the programmed 15 minutes as I like my veggies a little on the crunchy side. Next time I will use 10 minutes.
Very little steam actually comes up through the lids. I set it on the counter as close to the edge as possible. Did not burn myself getting veggies out like I normally do.
Having the option to set the timer for all three spaces at the same time knowing they will all start at different intervals but finish at the same time is fantastic. This is definitely the Rolls Royce of steamers. While expensive I believe it is worth it. This steamer gives you options no other steamer does
This is truly the best steamer I've ever used, I'm certain it's because they broke the mold when creating it-literally. The ability to have up to 3 different compartments timed to finish simultaneously eliminates the need for multiple timers ticking in your kitchen. It also means you can steam complete meals in this one appliance, without taking up much counter top space. It's also whisper quiet
Bought one of these thinking it might a bit more gimmick than functional. Was I wrong.
It works great! Less clean-up time than pots and steamers. The food all finishes at the same moment and remains warm while the meat on the grill is finishing or resting.
You will love it, eat more vegetables and they will taste better.
I have nothing bad to say about this steamer as long as it keeps working. I no longer use my pots and steamer tops and hope I never will again unless I have to have the larger volume for larger groups of people when we entertain
Cannot believe that this is on sale at this price. Thinking about buying a second one for back up. This is as easy as a microwave, better tasting but does take a bit longer. I have cooked many fish dinners in here along with veggies. Microwaves remove nutrients from your food. To put this together and wait 20 minutes and perfectly done? Why would anyone use a microwave. I am also using this with my VitaMix. Not sure I will need much else for cooking. Should I return my cu cooking set?
I have been looking at this steamer for a long time, reading countless reviews! My hesitation was in the high price compared to other steamers, however it seems as a great product! I felt comfortable ordering it when I learned of sur la table's 60 day return policy and the fact that it was on sale, even a better price than Amazon which is quite difficult to beat!
Looking for my Mother in law Steamer's are very hard to find now and they asked me if i would find one online,I bought them one @a dept store,But nowhere on the detail's did it say Mini Steamer!& i bought 2 One for me &my husband we haven't used our's,they used their's,But i just know they were not to happy,so i am sending this to them as a surprise!I read the review's so i am counting on the people's view here! I also bought 1 for me!I am excited it look's like a good steamer...
I use my current electric steamer quite frequently, and it's probably over 15 years old and getting in tough shape. It's definitely more than I would normally spend, but since I use the steamer so much, I figured I deserve it!!
I started a new diet program called nutritional balancing which requires eating six cups of steamed veggies each day. Chopping and cooking the veggies can be a problem with a extremely demanding schedule. This will be a big time saver for someone like me.
Best Answer:Yes, you can use each compartment individually or together. If together and the time required for each compartment is different, the compartment requiring the longer time will start first, then followed by the next compartment, etc. so that all of your food will finish at the same time.
Yes and no. You can steam a small meal in one or two compartments, but all the compartments will steam up. The compartments don't steam independently of each other. I've done it and it works just fine. I use this about once a week and I love it.
