K26182 - Technique 8.5qt 3 Tier Food Steamer
Fine until Warranty Ends
This seamer has worked fine until four days out of the warranty. It heated, water boiled and just when I thought the asparagus were ready, the steamer had just plain quit and would not restart. Save your money...it's not worth the disappointment of the hungry mouths waiting to be fed.
This is a great steamer - I love the tiers and the ability to cook different things at the same time. The only con is that it does take up a decent amount of space - however - I wouldn't let that stop anyone from purchasing this. Just find room for this healthy way to cook!
The best $21.96 I've ever spent
WOW!!!!! I can't believe the price. It's so worth the money. Today I steamed salmon fillets and they came out perfectly. I've had this steamer for several months now and I use it at least twice a week. With this purchase, you get way more than what you pay for. Don't let the clearance price tag fool or deter you from buying this product. You will not be disappointed.
One of my best purchases ever
I absolutely love this steamer and wish I had bought one years ago.Marinated chicken breasts overnight then put them in the bottom section with carrots on the second level and in 20 minutes I had a delicious meal with moist tender chicken.Have had it a week and used it everyday.Broccli,culiflower,hard boiled eggs,hot dogs all came out perfect.Need to fix quick easy delicious meals in a hurry?Order this and you will make your life alot easier.Wasn't sure where I was going to store this but quickly found out it is staying on my counter.Going to order one for each of my daughters to help ease the stress of their busy lives.
i gave this only 1 star because the timer doesn't work. after i set the timer it didn't move. it didn't count down the time. i am going to send it back for a replacement. also i would recommend they make the water level marks easier to see. maybe make them white colored. if my replacement works good i will like it. i love the 3 levels. great for making hard boiled eggs.
Worked great the first time!!! Second use and the timer broke......just spins and won't turn on. Returning for replacement. Will hope for the best after reading all the great reviews. Can't recommend to a friend at this point.
Worth the money
I purchased this item for my husband because he wanted to steam his seafood. We had looked at other stores and the other steamers were either a lot more expensive or were smaller and very cheap. We used this and he loves it. Says it was well worth the money we spent on it. Thanks.
Purchased this steamer about a month ago. It steams potatoe's, fish perfectly.
The talipia fillets are frozen and within ten minutes they are perfect and not over done.
It holds enough water it keeps the steam at even level. Good Product.
BEST STEAMER EVER CARRIED BY QVC
I purchased a couple of steamers in the past from QVC. The sides of the baskets were flimsy. I ditched them after the first use. This steamer, however, is perfect. I haven't used all three tiers at one time, but have done many veggies in them - including corn on the cob, carrots, green beans, and cauliflower. It stays on the countertop in my kitchen! If they can improve on this steamer, I don't know how!
Use it almost every day!
I wasn't sure if I wanted to order this since I was afraid it would be too cheap. It's one of the best kitchen small appliances that I have bought. We eat tons of steamed veggies. With this, I can so them all at one time according to how much or how little time the individual veggies take to cook. It's excellent for doing eggs too.... we love deviled eggs. When I make hot sausage, I always boil it first in water to remove excess fat before I prepare it with my sauce, peppers and onions. I decided to try it in this. It was great! ...the only thing with sausage... since the fat drains out of it, don't do three levels at one time. It will over fill the chamber in the bottom. Someone mentioned that you can't do rice in this because the holes are too large. I haven't tried it since I have a rice steamer, but I imagine you could line a chamber with parchment paper and it would work.
Awesome Food Steamer...I LOVE It!!!
I just LOVE my Food Steamer!!! I have mainly just steamed vegetables in it...but their are so many things you can steam in here!!! I would think you could even steam baby bottle nipples! This is so nice to use in the Summer, you don't have to cook on top of the stove or start the oven & heat up the House!!! I Highly recommend this Food Steamer!!! Buy it you'll LOVE it!!!
Great product for the price
I recently purchased this and I am glad I did... I have found many uses for this item... mostly for my fresh vegetables.... cooks to perfection!
