Sistema 2.75 Quart Microwave Multicooker
it does what it says - not bad <3
cos you gotta let it soak for 12 minutes before zapping it - does make it a bit slower
Just love this Microwave cooker. It is easy, quick and easy clean up. The food comes out great just like Chef Tony states. Recommend this to families who are ready for a new easy product.
This item might be good if you only use small portions. The most it can make at a time is 1 cup of rice. I tried both 2 cups and 1 1/2 cups as my family of 3 needs more for a meal than just 1 cup. It overflowed both times. The rice was very good, but the sticky mess from the starchy water overflow was not worth the effort.
Since I have never made rice in the microwave, I decided to read the rice package. Lo and behold, the instructions were pretty much the same....same cooking time...same directions, minus the bowl.
If you love using the microwave and only use small or single portions, then this might be for you. Otherwise, I'd say just use your own bowl and have one less item to store in your kitchen.
Ups and Downs
This cooker is great for steaming vegetables. After trial and error I got to make a pretty good batch of rice in it. However, I decided to warm up some raviolis in it and it really stained something horrible. I would not recommending putting anything with tomato inside this unit. Can beans would probably have the same result as well
one of my favorites microwave tools
purchased this for main purpose of steaming vegetables for my husband as we are not big meat eaters, simple, quick and easy to use, showed my husband how simple and easy to use and such easy cleanup, one of my favorite new kitchen tools
Best Purchase In A Long Time.
This stays used in my kitchen every night. Having vegetables every night on a special diet, this is a time saver and so easy.
Perfect For Me
Love this multi-cooker. Works great for steaming vegetables. Like the size and the ease of cleaning.
easy to use
works as should, biggest problem is adjusting water with cooking time for certain items.
I really didn't think microwave food could be so yummy! I didn't have high hopes for this set but used it one night when I was tired and hungry and thought *what the heck*. I made goulash. In the back of my mind, I was waiting for it to be a flop. To my surprise, it was AWESOME! Seriously! My usual recipe takes over 2 hours (lots of simmer time) and this made it in less than 30 minutes... and even cooked the pasta from dry to perfect! I am a believer! Oh...and... leftovers go into the fridge in the same pot... and reheat in the same pot... no more sink full of dishes!
I actually made BBQ chicken in ours....6 pieces in about 10 minutes....completely done...tender and juicy! !!!!
For a single person in my household this is a wonderful item and very useful. The first recipe I prepared was in the booklet, pasta with mushrooms and marinara sauce! I was amazed how easy and and quick this tasty meal came together. I am tweaking the rice cooking time up a bit from the called recipe. Love this product and easy to clean!
Works Great for Me.
I saw all the bad reviews on this and decided to try it anyway. I am glad I did. We live in Colorado and with the altitude, I have always had a problem with rice. It's either not done and mushy or too dry. I went by the directions except after 6 minutes I shut off the microwave and let it stand a minute so it wouldn't boil over and then stopped and started again until done. Have used it 3 times now and it turns out great.
