This contraption is quite simply, brilliant. There’s adequate space to be able to put 2-3 chicken breasts on the bottom shelf and loads of veg above it. The included rice tray is also a nice touch. This means that the most tedious part of my food preparation is now boiling a kettle to fill the reservoir on the steamer. After a 20-25min steam (during which time I can have a shower, fire on some tunes and dance around in my underpants for a bit) by meals are all prepared and cooked perfectly.
What’s better still is that green foods (like beans, broccoli, etc) actually taste better as you are retaining more of the healthy nutrients which are normally thrown away with the water when you boil them in a pan.
I wish I’d discovered this device earlier. It is fantastic for gym-goers like me and I expect, families alike. A truly essential gym addict product.
The comments on size are fair - this is smaller than other steamers - so would only really suit a couple or single person - a family of 4 might struggle - but apart from that its a simple, useful appliance.
As it does not use a 'tube' to generate steam, but simply boils water it does take longer to get going than other steamers - so either start if from the kettle, or 10 minutes earlier.
However, if you want a small, cheap, simple steamer, this is a good choice.
Russell Hobbs 14453 Compact Food Collection Steamer, 7 Litre Capacity (Brushed Stainless Steel)
I previously had a Tesco electric steamer, but it didn't contain a rice basket, which is what I was looking for. What an error to replace my trusty and well designed (and well-priced!) Tesco steamer for this poor product.
The water boils through the bottom tier and there is no way to top it up while it is cooking without lifting all the baskets. There is no water level indicator either.
The baskets are very small (luckily I am only cooking for one) and are made from a cheaper plastic. They do not fit together nicely, nor are they stackable.
I am most disappointed and wish I had sent it back when I first got it.
I received this as a present for christmas, please if you are considering buying this for someone, spent an extra £20 and get another one....the recipient won't wonder what they have done wrong to receive it.
I've had to give myself time to calm down to write this review, I can't believe how this product got through safety testing. It's very dangerous as it doesn't cook the food.
The instructions say "Add 1 pint of water for 30 minutes cooking" only problem being that if you even fill it over half way the water boils over the reservoir spills everywhere and also boils the food in the first basket.
I tried cooking rice but forget about it, 30 minutes in and the rice was solid so had to boil it.
