Steaming vegetables is a much healthier alternative to boiling foods to an inch of their life and removing all the valuable nutrients.
You will love having one of these Oster 5712 Electronic 2-Tier 6.1-Quart Food Steamers in your home because not only does it steam vegetables but also a myriad of other foods including fish, eggs, dim sims and even rice.
I must admit I haven’t tried rice in my steamer but I am going to give it a go now that I know that it can do it.
What We Like
- It includes an egg holder for making soft or hard boiled eggs.
- It comes with two steaming trays
- It has a delay function of up to 12 hours.
- It has a 95 minute timer which is great for a steamer. Some only have 45 minutes max.
- It also has a keep warm setting so you can keep the food warm while you are preparing the rest of your meal.
- The two steaming trays allow you to cook two or more different foods at the one time.
- You can add water without having to remove the steaming trays. This is great if you find half way through steaming something that it needs more water.
Other Things to Consider
- The parts can only be hand washed although these steamers are relatively easy to clean.
- It will take up a bit of space when stored.
