Sistema 2.75 Quart Microwave Multicooker
whole Wheat 60 min rice in 20 minutes
In the microwave during the heat of summer in a third of the time you can make it on the stovetop. Whats more to say. Great purchase
Works as the presentation says!
Works efficient, easy clean up! Light weight. I have used for rice and the rice was cooked completely and uniformly.
This product is excellent. I have steamed rice and meat in it. I plan to use the recipes that came with the product.
Love This Item!
I only used my microwave for reheating food. You couldn't talk me into preparing food in the microwave even if you gave me the cookware for free. This product intrigued me because of the design of the lid and the clearance price point. I used it for the first time to reheat Chicken Alfredo. (something I would not have put in the micro to reheat because the cheese sticks to the pasta once it has been kept cold in the refrigerator overnight and it usually comes out gummy and dry) I added a little milk for the moisture and timed it for 3 minutes. It came out wonderfully and I actually liked it better the second time around. Subsequently, I prepared broccoli and cauliflower and it came out perfectly. I went back and ordered another one immediately before they sold out! Great item.
I have tried it once with a rice dish and it came out fine. I don,t know how it will fare with other recipes such as meats and vegetables, but so far so good.
I have several other sistema products and I love them. I am not as happy with this one. I would like the "steamer" insert to be on the bottom of the pot, not on the top. I think things steam better if they aren not sitting in the water. Also, the pot is larger at the top and narrower at the bottom, which makes the dimensions given deceiving. Only used it once so far and will try again. Easy clean up.
makes perfect rice
I had a similar one that I used almost every day and it lasted 15 years! I was so happy to see this in my fav color PURPLE. I seriously don't understand the bad reviews. To make perfect rice I wash the rice till water runs clear, use 2 cups of scalding HOT water or broth to 1 cup rice, place a plate under the cooker because rice bubbles up and this happens no matter what kind of microwave cooker you use, it's not a design flaw folks :/ or you can also put a paper towel on top around the vents to catch the steam. think outside the box, improvise o.O i'm back to get 4 more for GIFTS, these are great for dorms, RV camping, 1 lil cooker can do alot! I LOVE it.
Not Useful For Me
This was not worth the storage space in my cabinet. It works but only as well as many other cooking systems.
We were not at all impressed with this product.
I guess that if you did not have a regular rice cooker it would suffice for some people - for us, no comparison.
We have used it three times for different applications, and it did not do the job!
Will I return it? Probably cost me more than it is worth.
May use it for a water bowl for the pet.
I love this item. The only bad thing I can say it peels on the inside. I bought the bowls & they peeled on the inside so I sent that back for another set & the second set did the same thing.
This thing it's perfect I just use for the first time is fabulous I love thank you
Love love my steamer
Did you know you can make popcorn in your steamer? Yes you can that why I order another one just for food. It make your food stay moist. Great for reheated food.
