Sistema Klip It Microwave 2-piece Steamer Set
a good item
I learned from reading the other reviews about cooking times and various uses for the two sizes--but maybe you should be able to get your information (about cooking times, uses, etc.) from the product itself. At any rate, I made fantastic asperagus in seven minutes over a liquid of white wine and herbs. Salmon is next.
The bigger one i put veggies in with the vent open so that they stay crisp. The smaller one i put fresh cut up pineapple so that the juice drains into the bottom and the pineapple last longer with the vent open. I will find other uses but for now it makes a great veggie tray and cold water could be added into the bottom to insure crispness without the water touching the veggies or your fruit from can or fresh will drain into the bottom. Steaming is next.
Love this product!
Since we are consistent veggie eater over here, I find myself steaming broccoli, asparagus, etc. several times a week. Using this product makes that process so easy! I didn't receive any instructions with this item, but who needs 'em?! Steaming is so easy and the concept so well-known that all one needs is a little common sense, right? And some water, too! :)
I like the previous reviewers use of the steamer to revive dried out biscuits. I will try that, too! Thanks!
Love these steamers. For those of you who are returning because of no instructions, watch the video. It's so simple. A little liquid (water, stock, etc.) in the bottom (under the basket), lock top on, push vent to allow steam to escape, VOILA!! I have done corn on the cob...perfection. I made biscuits last night. This morning, they were like 'hockey pucks'. Put two in the small steamer with a little water in the bottom, microwaved for 30 secs, soft, fluffy and hot! I would definitely recommend this product!!
LOVE THIS PRODUCT
I purchased this product in Red. When I first received it I wasn't sure if I would ever use it. Almost returned it. One night I decided to try. I was in love with it. I found out that the vegetables I cook take exactly 10 minutes. I am careful to keep the water level below the white insert. It is so easy to use. I pop it in the microwave for 10 minutes and can just walk away and they are done in 10 minutes. Much easier than putting in a pan on the stove. Great investment.
Use this almost every day
I use this alot, great for steaming the veg in, could do with a few tweeks to improve but overall its good it works and easy clean
Right now I have mixed feelings on these.
Sizes are great, quality seems to be good, BUT they have no instructions so you are guessing on times, which I really don't like doing (because it really wastes food!), I steamed some fish in them for the amount that my other steamer said to do it for and it was WAY over cooked in this one. I really wish they would have included at least a guide to cooking times, so we would know kind of where to start!! Needless to say my fish was not good and it got tossed and fish is not cheap!
Were not the shipping costs both directions this would have been returned. The clasps on the lid popped off the first time using - multiple times either all the way off or part of the way off. It took three times longer to steam with this then the plastic steamer bags you purchase in the grocery store due to the additional water needed to steam using this device. Not impressed with the quality of this steamer.
microware 2-piece steamer set
I have not used yet but cannot wait to use. Looks great.
Could've been OK
I didn't get to use this because there were no instructions included. I returned it.
I know I will love these
I have the 4 large mugs and they are great! Easy to clean too.
I would think these will be great to store items in the refrigerator also
Great Microwave Steamer!
I love this Steamer! Now I'm actually cooking in the microwave instead of just heating up food. I'm having such a great time with my Sistema. I don't turn my back when my daughter is here for a visit lol. She has some things from my kitchen, but she'll never get my Sistema, no-sir-ee. I told her where she can get hers if she really wants them, and it isn't mom's kitchen. Maybe Santa will bring her some. They work wonderfully. Love my fresh steamed veggies, along with many other dishes you can do in the Sistema, and so fast! I highly recommend The Sistema 2-piece Steamer Set! AWESOME!!!
