Le Vrai Gourmet stainless steel 20cm multi level steamer
A good buy
I purchased this steamer to use in addition to my normal one so I can use it at christmas or for dinner parties. It is neat so doesn't take up too much space. It is a little lightweight hower I got it half price so am very happy with my purchase.
Good value 1/2 price but do dent easily
I find it very good value since I got it half price and extra 20% off. It is very light and a bit thin so it will dent easily. It came well boxed and padded. I bought the 24cm one to steam vegetables and also to put my 23cm bamboo steamer in to do chinese dumpling steaming. Works perfectly.
Slightly lightweight with ill fitting lid
I bought this steamer to replace a one I'd had for years and I was surprised at how lightweight this one was, however this has not proved a problem. The lid was ill fitting and had I bought in the shop rather than online I would probably have checked to see if there was a better model. I got the steamer in the half price sale so overall I thought I got a bargain.
Nice looking product, lightweight, not used it yet so can't comment on this aspect, bit disappointed that it is not oven proof, I like multi purpose products and would have liked to have beeen able to use the base as a casserole. However on the whole very satisfied. Arrived in pristine condition (no dents or damage).
The steamer is a nice size, not such good quality as my previous steamer which is smaller. I purchased the steamer in the sale as it was a bargain half price, wouldn't have paid the full price. Overall a good steamer
Awesome but dented
Awesome product, versatile and value for money off the chart, it would have got 5 stars but for the 2 big dents in the pan base, have kept them as I could not be bothered with the hassle of returning them, although if I had not purchased them in the sale, I would have!! A happy chippy tho :) .
Good for the price
I bought this steamer in the sales... despite some fairly scathing reviews.
I can understand them... the metal is fairly thin, and mine did arrive with a small dent.
But, I can get over those things... I wanted a small, cheap steamer, and that's exactly what I got.
It still does the job, very well, it's easily cleaned, not too heavy (important when it has alot of boiling water in it)... and I can get over the small dent (I'm certainly not going to send it back and add to the mountains of waste just because of one small flaw).
A good job overall. Rice tastes great steamed... and veg and potatoes are heaps better. It takes longer, but is worth it :)
Excellent product so bought another
Bought two of these - one larger and then this 20cm 'medium size' as I was so impressed.
Very light (I can pick it up and put it in the back of a cupboard one handed) and deeper than most so caters for two to six easily and yet doesn't take up too much hob space. The glass lid fits better than my previous steamers so less 'leakage'.
A really nice product and "le Vrai Chose".
