Silver three tier steamer 0S2BS
I first bought one of these steamers about 18 months ago. There seems to be a basic design fault with this steamer in that the lid and its handle come apart after a few months. The first time we glued the hande back onto the lid, but this did not last so we tried to get a replacement lid which we were perfectly willing to purchase. Unfortunately we were informed this was not possible so had no alternative but to take the steamer back to the local store which replaced the whole unit. This has happened a further 3 times. I am a senior citizen who does not subject the product to rough treatment so am at a loss to understand why this keeps happening. In view of this I could not recommend this product although in all other respects it has proved satisfactory.
Better than expected
I was given this steamer in exchange for a Breville steamer that died after 3 months. It is a good size, the baskets are not flimsy and the bases do not fall out. It is very easy to use and to clean. It stacks down so does not need a lot of storage space. Recommended.
worst purchase ever
do not buy this steamer, the food tastes of the plastic containers, the trays slip into the food at the slightest touch. The amount of steam coming from the air holes is horrifying. Apparently this is because, being plastic, the lid is not heavy enough to keep the steam in the containers. I took mine back to Debenhams and bought a stainless steel one with a glass lid. Well worth the extra money.
I cook for 5 adults who all complained about the plastic taste, particularly carrots and cauliflower.
Love a steamer! Worked well and the food was great. Trays are a little tricky to put in place and only the small tray fits well on the base; the rest have to be stacked. However, it does the job I bought it for!
I am very short of space in my kitchen, so have been wary of buying a 3-tier steamer. I love the way this one packs away into a small space. Brilliant.
Steamer - Excellent!!
I bought this for a present and after being delighted with the gift they were extremely happy having used it. It was certainly an excellent purchase and I would recommend it.
this is huge for a steamer, holds plenty for a family and steams faster than my previous one, looks really good too.
Good size steamer
I like this steamer because it is large enough to fit in a 25-28cm oval deep serving plate. So besides steaming vegetables I can use this steamer for cooking Asian dishes as well, like steaming a whole seabass or any kind of meat dish. The only downside is that the steam baskets don't feel very sturdy. Nevertheless, I am happy to have found a large size steamer and it does the work perfectly.
