Product Description Review

The first time I heard of a "new" steamer being launched, my initial reaction was "what could be so great about another new steamer"? But the Morphy Richards Intellisteam has proved to be quite the innovation in a product area where one would think innovation would be tricky.

In today’s world, we are all looking for a healthy eating lifestyle, but combined with time-saving and convenience. Now, your average steamer definitely caters for the healthy eating requirement, but most don’t offer the best in convenience and time-saving. With the majority of steamers you have to control the timing and therefore have to keep an eye on what is going on throughout the cooking process, but nor with the Intellisteam.

The Intellisteam steamer from Morphy Richards solves all these problems. So, what is so different about it? The main, and significant difference is the fact that there are separate timers for each of the 3 compartments. This means that you can put 3 different food types in the steamer, set the desired cooking time for each compartment (either by using the presets or setting manually) and then switch it on. The machine then works so that all 3 elements finish steaming at precisely the same time.

So all you need to do is prepare, set the times, switch on and relax, as the Intellisteam does the rest for you. And once the food is ready, but if you are not, the unit automatically switches to a 40-minute keep warm function. As for cleaning, I just rinse the compartments out, empty the water container and your are done.

I have used the Intellisteam for a number of various foods, ranging from chicken and fish, to vegetables and potatoes. As a first time user of a steamer, I have to say you really do notice the difference in taste of steamed food. And as for ease of use and convenience, the Morphy Richards Intellisteam ticks all the boxes. -- Martin Sandmeier,

I have used many steamers since i first started using a steamer in the 1960, some good and some not so good, The last one I Had was a Tefal that had a fast start vitamin button, When pressed it flooded the work surface with water Tefal said stop pressing the button, It is now in the scrapheap and I bought the morphy richards intellisteam, I was a bit sceptical about the claims it made but after using it for a month I can honestly say that it lives up to all its claims it is very good on the standard recommended settings and you have the option to add or take away minutes, The food will cook seperatly in its own compartments and comes out perfect , I have never had a steamer that is so easy to clean it does not have all the tiny holes that are the norm and are very difficult to clean. Overall this is the best steamer I have had the pleasure to use in the 40 years I have been steaming food and I would recommend anyone to try it even if you are an old hand or a novice steamer it is the simplest
to use and produces the best food.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
I have used an ordinary pan steamer for years so I didn't really see how an electric one would be any great advantage...

But I was wrong...

This steamer consists of three separate compartments, all of which are separately programmable. You pour water into the base, put the drip tray on top, and then put the food containers on top of that. You put the food directly into the containers, programme in the cooking time (there are many pre-set cooking times such as 'fish' and 'rice') and then press 'start'. The machine steams the food in time order so that it all finishes cooking at the same time - and then it beeps to let you know that dinner is ready!

My first meal cooked in the steamer, on the day it arrived, was a what-have-I-got-in-the-fridge hotch-potch of basmati rice, corn on the cob, and already cooked beef mince in gravy (which I just wanted heating up). I assembled it in the various containers, set the times, and walked away. The instructions were easy enough to follow, and it was a novelty to sit down and watch TV knowing that dinner was being prepared!

Within half an hour it was all ready. The rice was cooked to fluffy perfection, the cobs were tender and the mince was bubbling hot. Unfortunately, I had not thought to cover the mince and so the condensation from the steam had thinned the gravy: I should have put tin foil over the container. It didn't matter to me because I'm a vegetarian: the mince was for my husband!

This steamer will cook all kinds of meat, fish, root vegetables, pasta, rice - even sausages! In fact, I think there's not much you can't steam.

What a great investment this steamer has been. I'm not this organised, but if I was... food could be prepared the night before and left in the steamer containers in the the fridge. When I got home from work, all I'd have to do is put the containers on the steamer, set it and walk away. As it is, I can get on with other things whilst dinner is cooked for me and I get called back to the kitchen when it's ready to eat... and if I'm not ready yet, it'll keep warm till I am! It's like having a personal chef. If only it served and cleared afterwards (or I could get my husband to do it all unassisted).

The recipes that come with the steamer are fantastic - wish there were more of them because the other steamer recipe book I have requires more 'tranlsating' from traditional steamer methods than I can be bothered with.

Food comes out cooked to perfection, and everything tastes like it's supposed to. My husband says the rice is the best he's ever had.

Definitely recommend this product if you're thinking about a healthier (or just easier) lifestyle!!

I bought this steamer 5 months ago and I have used it several times.

Pros: The whole meal finishes at the same time.
Three different compartments for different types of food.
Food tastes really good without the need of adding fat
Once food is put in place, you can relax until the food is ready

Cons: The time you save while cooking you will spend it cleaning this product. Unless you have a dishwasher, stay away from this steamer, it takes forever to clean this plastic containers, it's almost the equivalent of washing 5 pots with their lids.
If you don't use aluminium foil to cook kitchen pieces, the juice container will be full and the juices will drop into the water container that will start to burn and smell very bad. Also if you don't use aluminium foil to cook fish or other meats it will take you forever to clean the product.
The containers are not sturdy, so if you drop them, they will break.

At the end, I'm not tha disappointed, but I will the materials will be more sturdy and that it will be easier to clean. The idea of cleaning the machine after using it makes me think twice before using it. If you buy it, it helps to put all the containers to soak on hot and soapy water to clean them, the instructions say to use warm water, but you will need very hot water to clean those plastic containers.
