My new favorite
I love finding new ways that I can use this steamer/cooker. Perfect size for so many things. Not too small, not too big. Buy it, easy to clean too.
Great for single person
I have had my steamer for a couple of weeks and have used it several times already. I mainly bought it because I was in a habit of putting vegetables on the stove and then leaving them there until they burned. I decided I needed something a little more fool-proof. This works fine for what I use it for. It takes a bit of getting used to the silicone. I put the steamer on a plate before I put it in the microwave to make it more stable and less likely to burn myself when removing it from the oven. The fact that it only has one steamer insert does not matter to me.
I purchased the steamers to keep my microwave oven free from spills. I thought the presenter (Chef Tony) said that the lid locked in place/closed securely. However, this is not the case. The lids are loose. Therefore, you have to be careful taking the steamers out of the microwave when hot. The contents can spill out if you are not careful. Also, liquid can escape into the microwave oven causing the usual mess to clean up. Aside from the lid issue, the product is okay. One thing that wasn't explained during the demo... The package instructions say that the steamers need to be oiled before used. I wasn't sure if this is needed for first time use or each time.
GREAT TIME SAVERS
Love these little steamers. I use them mainly for reheating. The food comes out like it was just cooked. I also own the other ones shaped like a boat and use them regularly.
I tried this yesterday and it was ok but I would not buy another one for myself. I is small and good for 1 person...BE CAREFUL when you remove it from the microwave as the lid slips off and you can get steamed very easy and it bends so you may want to set it on a plate in the microwave. Also it takes longer than they said on TV to cook food. It would have been nice if it came with some type of instructions on how much water to use and about how long to cook.
I love these bowls. They do a fantastic job. Love the strainer . Perfect meal portions.
I love the steamers and have tried it with several different veggies and such.... I do agree with others about needing two steaming inserts. I knew it would be one when ordered so was not shocked, just disappointed that they would sell it with one instead of one each. Wonderful and time saving product, you will not be disappointed! Tomorrow is fish and veggies in a snap!!!!! Quick and healthy cooking... :)
VERY CHEAP OF YOU
Really love my steamers. Received them and immediately steamed my favorite vegetable, green beans. I wanted to steam a little broccoli but of course I only had one insert. Why would you sell the product with one insert? If its about cost then you should have charged a little more and included insert for each steamer. This is just cheap of you. I really love the product and want to order another set but I don;t think I will. I think you should send an insert to everybody who bought this product and consider charging a little more so that folks can get 2 inserts. It's very important to me to have 2, thus 4 stars..
Really like thisproduct!
I like the whole idea of MW cooking using this for great results! I made the shrimp scampi and by using a few more shrimp (estimate 30) medium size total) had enough for two generous servings without doubling the liquids. I served frozen fried rice on the side. Yummy good! Any more recipes available?
Yummy in my tummy
Received last Friday. Steamed fish, peppers, squash in it today. Yummy and so healthy. Hoping to find other recipes
Best in microwave
I love these bowls. I would rather steam without the steamer insert. I love putting leftovers in them as well. It's true what Mark Charles says about it. I recommend these for people that use the microwave a lot. I do use the microwave a lot and I even have ate out of these. I didn't want a giant steamer sitting around so, I chose this. Glad I did. If you are like me and don't have much space go ahead and give these a try.
