I have had 2 Tefal steamers, the plastic baskets eventually broke. I bought Prestige as the strong. metal baskets are both sturdy and dishwashersafe. The steamer is much faster than Tefal. The only downside though, is that the baskets are durable, but the electrics fail, so swings and roundabouts really. There is no bell or indicator to let you know if it boils dry. I am on Prestige number 2 and the same thing has just happened after only 6 months, the electrics have gone.
