Where to start on this marvellous machine? All you need is 30 minutes to have a healthy, easy and quick to clear away dinner leaving you more time for the evening or even afternoon!!
Having 3 separate compartments (1 with a separator to make it 4) you can fill each one with different vegetables, meat and sauces and set the timers to have the meal ready all at the same time! Perfect!
Its easy to work out how the Steamer goes together, there is a great manual inside giving you 7 days worth of meal ideas, which are really simple to make with practically no preparation time! I would try the "Hoisin Duck with Egg Noodles and steamed Chinese-spiced vegetables" its ready and on the table in 37 minutes and tastes delicious!
The water level can be seen by the Water Gauge at the front, although if you have stuck it on and ran out the kitchen to watch your favourite hour long TV programme then do not worry, either the Steamer will have finished its cycle and a buzzer will sound, or if the water boils completely away, before this happens a warning buzzer will sound and if left it will auto-power off to avoid damage.
When the steamer finishes its cycle, a buzzer will go off. If you are not ready to eat, or your friends have not arrived then you can leave your food in the steamer and push the steam button which then keeps the food warm on a low steam.
There are so many things that you can cook perfectly in this machine, I made a Chicken Korma the other week. It cooked the rice perfectly, chicken was cooked and tasty and the sauce was hot and then easy to pour over the rice and chicken in a bowl!
I really am very impressed, I have invited my friends over for dinner and left it cooking allowing me to spend time with them rather than all stand in the kitchen.
After all that cooking, I bet your thinking what about the mess you are left with isn't it hard to clean? Well the answer is no.
When you have finished allow the steamer to cool-down for 5 minutes to avoid scalding yourself (I have done it and it hurts!) Remove the compartments and the grey middle section that separates the top with the base with the water in and put all of it in the dishwasher, as it is dishwasher safe!
The base is normally clean, it not a damp cloth will get rid of any residue left.
If you live in a hard water area you may get a lime-scale build up on the 3 heaters which you can use a mild descaling product on. If left then it can slow the cooking power and that means more waiting time!
One main problem if you have a small kitchen as this steamer takes up approximately 30 cm width and depth, whereas its height is just under 30cm.
If you are looking for an alternative to cook clean healthy foods, then this would be a perfect buy. As it is steamed, minerals and vitamins in the food are locked in rather than escaping into water if you were to cook in a saucepan.
The currently price for an elite easy to use cooking machine is well worth it, I guarantee you will never have the urge to pickup and saucepan to cook your vegetables or when cooking meats to use a grill or pan fry as the taste is kept in the foods rather than charred or boiled!
If you buy it, I would really like to hear some of the things you have cooked and exchange my own recipes for this amazing steamer!
Summary: The best buy for people looking for a healthy alternative to cooking!
