Sistema 2.75 Quart Microwave Multicooker
Perfect rice in a flash
In the past I had to babysit my rice in the microwave, but no more. You may need to make cooking time adjustments based on your microwave wattage. I would appreciate it if sistema offered more recipe suggestions.
I loved this so much I have ordered 2 more on waitlist. One for the camper and another for my kitchen so I don't have to dump and clean for another dish- I can serve from both!! Thanks for this product!! Please hurry more in!!! ( For anyone needing instructions, just watch the video for directions.)
I love steamed vegetables and this makes it a breeze. I did a bunch of asparagus in four minutes and they tasted great.
Easy, Breezy Rice every time
It took me a while to figure out how the inner cover works, but then guess what? I read the directions LOL
The little spoon is just darling and very functional to fluff the rice.
Rice cooking time for 1 cup of rice is about 15 minutes where the time is double that cooking in the conventional way. The real plus is that you will never get scorched rice on the bottom of the pan ever again.
Crazy inexpensive, a great value. I haven't tried steaming veges yet but I bet it can. Before I do, think I write to Q and ask...just in case.
AWESOME. BEST RICE COOKER EVER
It does all kinds of great dishes, but what I love it for best is RICE. Perfect every single time, no burnt bottoms, no raw rice. 2 cups rice, 4 cups water. 12 minutes. Set it and forget it. Highly recommend to anyone who's tired of chipping black bottom rice out of your best pots or tired of having to stand there and constantly watch over it. Thanks for great product. I also have your mugs, and they are so very handy for soup on the go. We take them to work and conventions and they are lifesavers.
Too small for my household
I usually love everything I purchase from QVC, but this one fooled me a little. My friend suggested I purchase it, but upon receiving it, I was sorry as it was so small. Would be great for a single person, but when cooking for a family, it just wasn't big enough.
Wonderful time saving item
My neighbor told me to order this item and that I would love it! She was right! I really love it! No one would believe I made these items in a microwave. I just made 4 cut up chicken breasts,fresh Brussels sprouts and mashed potatoes that are, very moist and delicious . chicken took 20 minutes, vegetables 10, no pots to wash, I can not wait to make the recipes in the little cookbook provided. It has a 21/2quart capacity
It is like a microwave pressure cooker. The price is really reasonable
I've been using my cooker now for about 2 weeks...it does exactly as stated...easy clean up. I am a person that uses my microwave all the time...so I am glad I bought this item and the range mate....
Recommend with reservations
I have used the cooker several times and it works really nice. My only issue it there was no instruction sheet for using the cooker. The recipe book does not tell you how to use the cooker (ex. how much liquid can be used). I wanted to cook potatoes, but had no idea how many it would hold or how much water can be used. Also, no instruction on which way the inside top fits, so I tried it both ways. A good example is steaming broccoli, how much water should be used. I think a simple guide sheet for vegetable would be useful.
I thought the price was a little high for it initially (after shipping and tax), but I got sucked into the presentation and winded up buying it. I have to admit, it really does do what it says it does. I haven't tried to "cook" in it yet. I definitely plan on trying it one day. But I have used it every day thus far reheating food and it really keeps the moisture and taste and texture. Especially pasta! Pasta leftovers always dried out in the microwave so I used to add a little bit of water to the plate to help. With the Sistema, just dump the leftovers inside, 1 minute and done. No muss, no fuss. Cleans easily. I have a tiny microwave and it fits perfectly inside. Highly recommend for people who uses the microwave a lot.
Love this cooker
This cooker is great. It is tall so you need a large microwave oven.
Believe me, when I tell you, how great this little pot is, especially if you're cooking for small guest or yourself, The cooking takes less time, and the taste, you would think it cooked longer, the season locks into the pot, I think I might order another one, I love it.
